Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities

With families, neighbors and furry friends spending much more time at home, it is important to remember that many residents are considered essential workers and must leave their pets home alone daily.

Outside noise, such as a dog barking, can be a heavy distraction. Children, teenagers and college students may be trying to complete online learning. Some residents may be conducting job interviews from home, and many residents now work from home.

Being a good neighbor is a great way to make things easier for those in your village. Be considerate and don’t leave a barking dog outside when leaving it home alone for a long period of time.

Habitually barking that disturbs others is deemed a nuisance and in violation of the Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities pet policy. The privilege of keeping a pet can be revoked and/or a letter of caution issued if a pet is determined to be a nuisance.

Pet owners have full responsibility and liability for the conduct of their pets. 

For more information, see the Resident Guidelines and Community Handbook.

Do you have a frightfully good recipe? Send your recipe, a picture of the recipe made, your name and address to by Oct. 16. FLFHC will post recipes to Facebook as they are received. Four winners will be chosen by a random drawing Oct. 19. Winners will each receive a $25 Commissary gift card.

Office closures
The FLFHC offices and the Self-Help Store will be closed Oct. 12 in observance of Columbus Day. Trash collection will not be affected. To report a maintenance emergency or submit a work order when the offices are closed, call the 24-hour maintenance line at (913) 651-3838.

Mission donations
The City Union Mission Christian Life Center truck is now parked across from the Community Management Office weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. where residents can drop items off or arrange curbside pick-up.

The second Saturday of each month, place items for donation curbside before 10 a.m. for collection between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The mission will issue a tax voucher for accepted donations. The next mission pick-up is Oct. 10.

The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items, but not appliances, mattresses, cribs or carseats. 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.
For more information, call the Community Management Office at (913) 682-6300.

Utilities tip
Recycling one glass bottle saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours.
