Security Update – EXIT GATE

The exit gate construction is winding down and the Exit Gate and Exit Gate Arm are in service.  Here are a few reminders:

  1. Gate Schedule: The EXIT GATE will be in operation from 11 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.  The exit gate arm will be in operation at all times.  Because of the time it takes for the EXIT GATE to close the GATE ARM will close quicker to act as a deterrent to people trespassing the wrong way into the community through the exit gate.
  2. Gate Operation: When the EXIT GATE and GATE ARM are in service please pay attention to the signage as you approach the gate.  There is a STOP sign and a WAIT YOUR TURN sign on a pole at the left-hand side of the exit road.  This is to remind our members and guests to make sure you do not follow behind another car rather wait for the GATE ARM to close from the car in front of you before you proceed forward and trigger the GATE ARM to open.
  3. EXIT GATE Yellow Lines:  You will notice two (2) yellow lines as you approach the gate.  The yellow lines indicated the two trigger points for the EXIT GATE and GATE ARM.  If for whatever reason when you go over the first yellow line and it does not trigger the EXIT GATE and/or GATE ARM proceed to the second yellow line closest the EXIT GATE.  The second trigger point utilizes an advanced technology that will trigger the EXIT GATE and GATE ARM.  The second yellow line sensor is specially designed to address the issues we had with some motorcycles.
  4. Claims of Damage: This week we had a few members say that the gate damaged their car.  After reviewing the camera video from various angles of these incidents, it was determined that the members ignored the posted signs and tried to follow another car out of the exit gate/gate arm.  As a reminder, if you have a claim of damage you MUST submit your claim via your insurance provider.  Under no circumstances will the association work directly with you on damage claims. 

If you have any issues at the gate you can always contact ROVING PATROL (number is on the gate) or call/email the ILPOA Office (573-885-3630 or

Thanks for your attention and patience
