Dec 2012 Update
As winter approaches our community becomes a different kind of playground.
Here are some things to remember before going out on the Ice.
The lake is to be enjoyed but please remember safety while on the ice and be mindful of your neighbors while having a good time.
- Be careful the ice could be thin (That's if we have any this year)
- Don't go out on the ice alone
- Let someone know that you are going out on the ice
- If Ice fishing you must obey NJ fishing laws and have a valid NJ fishing license
- The use of motorized augers is not permitted
- The use of ATVs, quads, dirt bikes or anything that has a motor, electric or gas is not permitted on the ice
- If you let your dogs out on the ice you must clean up after them.
While you and your guests are enjoying the lake or any LLA common interest properties remember to have your Lake Badges with you.
Your 2012 badge is required year long.
If you have a question about your LLA CIE (Common Interest Expense) balance or have not gotten your 2012 badges please contact us.
Boat Rack Dec 2012 Update
Thanks to all of you who removed your boats from the boat racks.
Unfortunately there were a couple of boats that were still chained when we went out on Thanksgiving Saturday so we did have to cut 2 chains.
Some of you had trouble moving your boats without help so the volunteers moved your boats onto the grass in front of the racks and
we were able to stand the rack that was tossed upside down (with the boats still attached) back upright.
While we inspected the racks a decision was made to re-work the boat rack area.
We will be putting a cement pad under the racks and also plan on extending the racks.
One of our members (who is a mason) along with another neighbor (who works in construction) volunteered to do the work at no cost to LLA
as long as we supply the material. Thanks Doug and Joe!
After the concrete pad is installed and the weather gets warmer we plan on painting and numbering the racks.
We also plan on replacing the rack that flipped. We think we can use shelving that is typically used in warehouses.
If anyone from the community has any suggestions please contact us. Thanks
Dam Dec 2012 Update
In preparations of Super Storm Sandy we opened the valve so the lake could be lowered in time for the storm.
We had no issues with the Dam before (we have gone through a spring, summer and most of the fall) or after the storm.
The grass we planted on the Dam's walkway seems to have taken pretty well.
Previous DAM Update
The fallen upstream retaining wall was removed and the slope re-graded with riprap.
Unfortunately, after hurricane Irene, we had an unexpected DEP mandate requiring us to continue the clay wall down to the beginning of the beach.
Fortunately we were able to complete the total Dam project in time to enjoy the 2012 Summer season.
