Repaving of Glidden Drive
The repaving of Glidden Drive will start on April 9th with the break up and creation of a sub road in preparation of paving the road later.  Everyone who receives mail on Glidden received detailed information from the highway department on the resurfacing. All work is scheduled to be completed by June 8, 2018. Weather will determine when the hot mix asphalt pavement will occur. The crews will be on the job site from 6AM-5PM. Please use caution around the road crews. Special thanks to Ginny Zdenahlik for sending in the pictures of the road crew at work.  Pictured is the pulverizing machine that broke up the road creating a sub road. The asphalt will go on top of this. Of course the massive amounts of snow have really razed havoc with our road repacking process!!!. Will be interesting to see what the plow did to this....



GDA Winter Dinner
About 50 neighbors gathered for dinner at the Mill Supper Club on February 17th. In spite of the icy road conditions everyone got there and home safely! It was a fun night and lots of lively conversation around the room. The bit larger space allowed many to mingle.

Maintenance Committee
We have an operational Maintenance committee headed by Paul Kasriel. They request your help in identifying signs on the drive or the lanes in need of repair. Please contact GDA at: GDAnews2015@gmail.  The messages will be forwarded to Paul. Thanks for your help in keeping Glidden Drive in order. We are bothered by petty vandalism at times. If you notice these acts as they are occurring, please notify the Door County sheriff. 


Fire Safety
As we hopefully anticipate the warm summer months, please remember to practice fire safety.  Small beach fires are legal without a permit, but PLEASE use caution!  For complete details review the Guidelines For Guests and Renters (applies to us homeowners, too!!) under the Bylaws tab.














 
       













PROPANE UPDATE (Jerry S. 06/4/18)  
1.    Contracts should be mailed out in June from Lakes Gas to the GDA membership for the upcoming heating season.  Be sure your membership is paid up so you are included.
2.    The GDA is one of ten organizations belonding to a network designed to monitor and negotiate current and future propane service.  The network currently totals 693 properties/propane users.  That large number gives us good negotiating leverage.
3.    The price for next season will be increasing - probably to around $1.35 per gallon.  Why?  Our pricing is pegged to the January 2019 futures, which has increased considerably!  This is due, in part, to projected supply and demand concerns, some of which have resulted from the lessons of the bitter cold winter of the past 2017-2018 season.
4.    This incresed price is very competitive when compared to some checking of the spot market, which currently ranges from $1.67 to $1.71 locally, and could get worse with political/economic tensions.
5.    Let's all hope for a mild winter.  Stay warm out there!

WPS NATURAL GAS PROJECT UPDATE - (09/01/17 Jerry S.)
In a conversation with the project engineer from WPS, the decision has been made to “cancel" the project. The decision was based on the amount of bedrock just under the surface and lack of right away in which to trench. Best to remain friendly with your propane delivery guys for the foreseeable future.
