The HOA

About Your HOA


Palmer Lake Beach Club is the HOA for the Plat of Palmer Lake. Property owners (members) within the Plat are subject to the Declaration of Restrictions, Covenants, Conditions, and Easements as well as the Bylaws which are created by the owners. The Declaration and Bylaws are part of the deed for each property within the Plat. All construction and development within the Plat must be approved by the Board of Directors in advance.  See the downloads below.

The Board of Directors

  

The members elect the Directors who are unpaid volunteers to the HOA and serve the membership. The Directors meet on the 4th Thursday of each month (except December) at 7:00pm, at the South Beach. Meetings are open to all members. October and March there are general membership meetings, details are sent by mail/email to members.   The Board is legally obligated to follow the Bylaws established by the members.  Minutes are kept for each meeting.  See the downloads below.

HOA Operations


Day to day operations of the HOA are managed by the Board of Directors, who operate strictly under the Bylaws created and approved by the members. The Board's discretion is limited, and must follow the Bylaws. The HOA has a bookkeeper and maintenance staff.  The HOA is not law enforcement, and does not investigate crimes.  The HOA does review neighborhood issues with regard to appearance, maintenance and construction for compliance with standards.

Property Sales & Purchases

When an HOA property is sold, the purchaser (or their title company, attorney, etc) should inquire to the HOA (via email) to ensure the property owner's account is current. The obligation for the account "runs with the land", and unpaid accounts will become the obligation of a new owner. New owners should also contact the HOA to ensure our records are updated, and to transfer the property account into the new owner's name.  Our fiscal year is July 1 to June 30.  HOA dues invoices are mailed in late May, and due July 1st.  Payments received after July 30th incur a late payment fee equal to the annual dues, per the Bylaws established more than 17 years ago by the members.

Standards & Compliance

The Bylaws of the HOA, which are created by the members, have certain standards regarding pre-approval of tree-cutting, construction and upkeep/property appearances.  As we become aware of potential non-compliant conditions, we contact the property owner to resolve the situation.  The HOA members have tasked the Board of Directors to take action, up to and including filing of liens and foreclosure in certain cases to ensure compliance.  Let's all work together to make Palmer Lake a great community.
