Three times in the past seven years the beach parking lot has been damaged in storms. In the past, gravel was replaced by members. This time the parking lot will be repaired by professionals in the hope that it will survive storms. There is also some damage to the pilings along the beach, they will be inspected, and repairs performed as needed.


A question was raised regarding people sleeping on the beach. There is nothing in the bylaws that prevents members from spending the night on the beach, but it is discouraged. A ‘no camping’ sign will be posted.


The current gate needs to be relocated as one end is encroaching on the adjoining property.


The Chet and Helen McHugh memorial bench has arrived and will be installed on the hill next to the road.


A motion was made to approve the beach report, seconded and approved.



Lee reminded the members that any complaints must be in writing. There are currently four complaints outstanding. Lee suggested members speak to their neighbors about any problems before submitting a complaint.


Update on the O’Bannon situation, prior to COVID the court ordered them to comply with the CCR’s. The homeowners did not comply. Cleanup contracted by RPCC was suspended when Island County Health got involved citing the property was a health hazard. They were found in contempt of court, but enforcement is on hold due to COVID closure of civil courts.


A motion was made to approve the landscape report, seconded, and approved.
