Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
Assessment inspections have begun for School of Advanced Military Studies and Command and General Staff Officer Course students. The inspection gives inspectors a chance to assess homes for any items that need to be taken care of before the final inspection. It also gives the maintenance staff insight into any items that may need to be attended to before new residents can move in.
The assessment inspections will serve as a pre-move-out inspection, but residents will still need to give Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities a copy of their military orders and fill out a “Notice of Intent to Vacate” form at least 30 days before they intend to vacate the property.
Inspections take about 30 minutes and are scheduled by neighborhood from noon to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday with Friday as a make up day. Residents who need to reschedule should contact Lindsey Nauss at (913) 290-1373.

KC Mission donations
FLFHC has partnered with the KC City Thrift Community Donation Center. The second Saturday of each month, items to be donated to the mission can be placed curbside before 10 a.m. For each donation, the mission will give a voucher for tax credit that can be written off income taxes.
The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items but not mattresses. Separate any bulk trash from donations and place clothing and shoes inside plastic bags marked for mission donation. Anything left on the curb Monday will be collected as bulk trash and not a donation.
Fort Leavenworth residents, don’t forget your Valentine. Stop by the FLFHC office after 9 a.m. Feb. 14 and pick up a treat for your sweetie while supplies last.
