Do I have to join the association?
Campsite owners are members of the Easement Owners Association. Owners hold a Deed of Campsite Easement. Regular maintenance fees cover the common expenses such as water, sewer, garbage, lawn care, recreational facilities, activities and reserve funds.
What are reserve funds?
Reserve funds are used for large projects such as replacements or repairs of the common facilities. The funds usually have strict criteria for how they are to be used. The criteria is based on the declaration, bylaws and accountability.
What other fees are the responsibilities of the lot owners?
Site owners pay their own property taxes, insurance on their cottage, electricity, propane gas, telephone, cable/satellite TV and hardwired internet access service.
How many easement owners are there currently?
As of January 11, 2018 we have 54 owners.
Do we have meetings?
Yes. The Annual Meeting is normally held in August and other informal informational gatherings are scheduled periodically in the Clubhouse.
What is a proxy?
Our association is comprised of volunteer board members who are elected by a majority of owners at the annual easement owner's meeting, usually in August. In order for community business to be carried out at the annual meeting, a quorum, or a simple majority of the easement owners must be represented at the meeting. These owners can either be present at the meeting (only one person listed on the deed is required) or they can complete a proxy in advance of the meeting, which effectively transfers their voting privilege (for this meeting only) to a neighbor. If a quorum of owners is not achieved, then by law the meeting will need to be rescheduled again and again until it is reached. This rescheduling is a waste of time for the owners who were in attendance at the original meeting. Of course, it is always best to try to attend these meetings whenever possible, but the proxy is a convenient way to make sure that your voice is heard and your vote (through a neighbor) is counted. All you have to do is complete and sign the proxy, and either return it to our community's management company, or simply hand it to a neighbor who is planning to attend the meeting. The proxy is only good for one meeting and does not affect your voting for other, future meetings.
