I would like to stay anonymous but feel the town should know the latest Bay Creek news.
Preserve Communities, who claim they want to be good neighbors with the town, plans to stop all non-residents from using any facility within Bay Creek– examples: Coachhouse, Golf Course, Beach Club, walking trails. They are selling “a lifestyle” and unless you are one of their club members you will be blocked.
We could not get a straight answer about current non-residents club members, whether their membership will be grandfathered or not. It sounds like, as of now, no non-property owners will not be able to join this special club “lifestyle”. Bay Creek will also be in direct competition with town businesses, new restaurants, a spa, and a new commercial retail shopping area.
Also, the new owners are in the process of taking amenities away from current property owners…amenities that have been included and paid for with HOA dues for years. Example: current pool and tennis courts will now become the racquet club, two sections of the South Beach will only be available to club members. Of course, the sections of the beach they are taking are the easiest to access and have been maintained for years with HOA dues.
Non-members will have to walk a good distance to use the beach.
Current residents who are now club members assume they are set, but I would imagine they will be getting a rude awakening as their dues skyrocket. Will their new membership contract be attached permanently to their properties and become mandatory, like it is with Preserve Community’s other properties???
In one webinar /conference call Preserve Communities mentioned getting the membership dues inline with their other properties. What does that mean, $300 maybe $500 a month with no limit on increases???
We are not getting any straight answer just a lot of corporate BS.
