Beach Parking Lot

The Sea Trail Beach Parking Lot is now finished. The Parking Lot had caused many problems due to the lack of organization. Cars were blocked into spaces and could not back out of their spots leading to complaints and unsafe conditions. It is now up to standard zoning and should offer a much better and safer experience for all of our homeowners. We own a lot that is 100×200 and the new lot is similar in design to the Sunset Beach Gazebo parking lot. It has been configured to allow the maximum cars for the land involved.  There are a few rules that we would like everyone to follow to maximize the use of the lot.

  • Parking is restricted to dues paid homeowners of Sea Trail.
  • Parking spots are for single vehicles only – No Trailers
  • Please follow the directions in the lot providing for One Way traffic.
  • All vehicles should angle park with your front tires against the new cement wheel stops.
  • Center your car in the space. This will allow ease of exiting your car without damaging your neighbors car.
  • Parking spaces are limited, use one car for you and your guests whenever possible.

Thank you for your cooperation

Policy Change: Loaning Tables & Chairs

In the past the Master Association has had a practice of loaning items (tables, chairs, etc.) to STMA members for their use outside of our facilities. After reviewing the issues surrounding that practice, the Facilities Committee has determined that effective 10 May 2019 that practice will no longer be continued. Thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter.

Authorized Use of Amenity Facilities

The Sea Trail Master Association has been working hard to both improve and expand our amenities over the past few years.  Some examples are:

  • the new pool at the MAC
  • redesign of the Pink Palace kitchen
  • improvements being made to the beach parking lot

It is in our best interests to ensure that these facilities are used only by authorized members and their guests.  This will enable us to provide both a safe environment and a positive experience for all our members.

Last year, many residents expressed concern about unauthorized use of our facilities:

  • the new pool, causing overcrowding and overuse leading to increased maintenance
  • a safety concern when unauthorized people are using our amenities

Therefore, the STMA Board requested that a committee look at possible changes to our policies and procedures to address these concerns.  This committee included representatives from our Access, Facilities, Rules and Pool committees.  We have had several meetings during the past few months, discussed a variety of options and investigated how other communities similar to ours handle access to their facilities.

As a result of our deliberations, the Committee will recommend a number of changes in our procedures to the Board:

  • primary among them will be requiring members sign in upon entering either of our pool facilities, indicating how many guests will be accompanying them and their time of arrival.
  • for those property owners who choose to allow tenants, family members or guests to use their access cards, it will be required that they complete the necessary forms and submit them to our Administrator at least seven days prior to the arrival of the guests.
  • these forms are being revised, will be available on the website and can be filed electronically if you choose.
  • in addition, the authorized guests will be required to sign in upon arrival at the pools.

We are hopeful that these new procedures will allow us to:

  • carefully monitor access to and use of our pool facilities leading to a more positive experience for all our members and their guests
  • our Pool Monitors will be better able to enforce the rules
  • they will be better able to identify those who do not follow the established rules and regulations
  • violators will be subject to loss of privileges and/or fines.
