July Board and Committee Meetings
Due to COVID-19, all King Farm meetings have been held virtually since March of 2020.

King Farm Fitness Center Open
The King Farm Fitness Center (gym) located inside the Community Center (300 Saddle Ridge Circle) reopened to residents last week. Due to the limited size of the room (approximately 300 square feet) people are still in close proximity, so we are currently allowing no more than four (4) persons to book a reservation at a time. Reservations can be made up to 1 week in advance. While Montgomery County has lifted COVID-19 protocols, KFCA is exercising caution as we do not know who is fully vaccinated and want to reduce the likelihood of transmission.
A capacity limit has been put in place for 4 people at a time*.
ALL residents must sign and submit a waiver to access the pool. If you signed a liability waiver last summer, it is still valid.
A key fob is required to access the fitness center. The fitness center can be accessed from the side door located on the right side of the community center building.
If you do not have a key fob, please complete the key fob application form or contact Management.
A reservation is required to attend the fitness center. Reservations can be made using the Omnify reservation portal: https://kingfarmcitizensassembly.getomnify.com
Please cancel your reservation if you cannot attend to allow others to book.
Please check-in to your fitness reservation using the QR Code or through your account in the Omnify portal.
Increased cleaning procedures have been put in place to help reduce the transmission of the virus.
Reservations can be booked for 1-hour increments beginning at 7:00 am.
If you are the only person exercising, you do not need to wear your mask; however, if additional persons are using the fitness center then all persons need to wear masks.
HOURS OF OPERATION:
The fitness center will reopen under limited hours of operation at this time. Because staff leaves at 5:00pm, the fitness center will be open Monday – Friday from 7:00 am – 5:00 pm. The fitness center will close from 10:00 – 10:30am and 1:30 – 2:00 pm to allow for additional cleaning.
