CLARIFICATION:  I want to clear up the confusion over the beach parking lot email blast sent out on Wednesday. What we are trying to do is to eliminate multiple swipes in a row. You cannot enter and then continue to pass your card to cars behind you that have no card. You can leave for any reason and come back at a later time, that will not be a problem. Each owner in Sea Trail is given 2 cards. You can use each card for an entrance of one car for each card. Things have not changed since last summer except we want to stop the multiple swiping in a short period of time that happened several times during Memorial Day weekend. Sorry for the confusion.

This past spring our access committee along with the STMA board came to an agreement that we should improve our parking at the beach and start monitoring visits at our pools. We have done both and it seems to be working so far.

There was some confusion Memorial Day weekend at the pool and at the beach parking lot. Home owners weren’t prepared to sign in at the pool but over the past couple of weeks, everything seems to be going well.

Memorial Day weekend was very crowded at the beach and our parking lot was full most of the time. We did have a few problems with access cards being used more then one time. We had several card holders use their cards 4 to 5 times in a row allowing 4-5 cars in the parking lot under one card. The rules state that each access card be used only one time. With it being used more then once it takes parking spots away from other card owners. So, the committee has decided that if an access card is used more then once, that card will be immediately suspended for 8 days. I know I will get a lot of complaints regarding this but our parking is very limited and we want it to be fair for everyone.
