The developers original idea was to preserve large timber to preserve the forest atmosphere.
Most lot owners purchased here because of the mountain/forest atmosphere. Lot development is not restricted by Park Restrictions or Bylaws except for buildings and lot line regulations. Some members seem less environmentally friendly, less appreciative of the aesthetic value of trees. The possibility that the high cost of lumber to build could be offset by the sale of logs from a member’s lot is tempting. Regulations are necessary to protect adjacent lots as well as Park property because members rarely know where lot lines actually lay. Proper precautions must be taken to protect Park water lines, roads & bridges from damage.
Lot owners logging their lot (s) must attain a lot modification permit application. This application must be filled out and submitted to the Board for approval, prior to cutting. Time must be allowed (at least 7-15 days) for the Board to consider the permit request.
The Board must be assured all Park rules & regulations are understood and applied by the owner. The Board of Directors has a fiduciary responsibility to protect common areas, park-owned property and trees, water lines, valves and pipes.
The Board is often approached, when lot lines are in dispute and/or when neighbors have conflicting ideas. This permit, which requires the marking of lot lines, assures the Board, the applicant is aware of the regulations & restrictions.
As soon as the Board is assured all terms of the application are met, the Board will grant a permit to haul over Park roads, which shall be signed by the President of the Board. This permit must be posted at the cutting site, as soon as approved and remain in place until the operation is complete.
It is paramount, members realize “They are financially liable for any and all costs incurred by the Park, due to this logging operation”.
