The Fountains at Raintree Lake is a planned community of 176 single-family detached homes in Lee’s Summit, Cass County, Missouri. Construction started in 2004 and was completed in 2016. The developer, Glen Jones, turned over control of the Association to an elected board of directors in July of 2016.
The Fountains is an over-55 community with lawn mowing, irrigation, snow removal and garbage service provided by the Association. Residents enjoy access to over 17 acres of common areas, two miles of paved walking paths and a beautiful pond. Homeowners also have access to all Raintree Lake amenities for boating, fishing, water sports, two clubhouses, walking trails, ponds, and a swimming pool complex.
Day-to-day management services for our community are provided by Area Real Estate Services in Independence. Our primary contact is Sandy Turner and she can be reached at (816) 650-6718 or email@example.com. Their office is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 to 4:30.
Please call or email Area Real Estate Services for ALL of your questions or concerns. They will record and track all requests to make sure the proper action is taken. Please do not call our lawn care, irrigation, or snow removal contractors direct UNLESS you have contracted with them for additional services beyond what the Association provides.
Architectural Control Boards (ARB)
Any changes to the exterior appearance of homes or lots in the Fountains MUST BE APPROVED IN ADVANCE by the Architectural Control Boards of both The Fountains at Raintree Lake AND the Raintree Lake Property Owners Association.
Approval can take some time and will NOT be given on demand, so do not schedule contractors until you have signed approvals from both Boards in hand.
