We have been informed by a fellow Member that they will be on the Dock on May 30 at
approximately 4:00 PM for the purpose of watching a family member, whose original wedding
plans have been the victim of the Covid-19, exchange vows and get some pictures. Their
estimate for the duration of the event is about 45 minutes and all in that party will be wearing
We have informed this Member that no Member can have “Exclusive Use of the Association’s
Common Property” which means simply all Members have a right of use of the dock.
We are providing this information to you, so you are not surprised by 10-12 people standing at
the pier head in masks and can make plans accordingly.
I hope that all is well in your household! During these difficult and trying times, it is important to be on the lookout for our neighbors, old and young. Although we do have The City of Beaufort Police Department patrolling our community on a regular basis, we should keep an eye out for any suspicious or abnormal activity. When you see something that does not look right, please report it to The City of Beaufort Police Department dispatch at 843-524-2777 or 911 if you deem it an emergency. Please do not try to approach the situation, if possible. Please take photos or notes that may help law enforcement. We are all in this together and with everyone looking out for each other, we will make it through these times safely.
The Board of Directors recognizes that many of the Members will have house-guests who may want to take a stroll down on the dock, while the Member is working or involved with meal preparations, etc. For this reason, the Board has passed a new procedure to allow unescorted ADULT HOUSEGUEST(s) to have temporary possession of the Member's KeyCard to gain access to the dock.
The NEW PROCEDURE REQUIRES:
MEMBER REGISTER THEIR GUESTS. This required the Member to go on the Association's Website (www.batteryshorespoa.org) and using the CONTACT THE BOARD feature register the Name(s) of the Adults who will be permitted use of their KeyCard and the period of time they will be allowed to use the KeyCard (duration of the visit).
The MEMBER should be aware that any damages or violations of the rules by guests will result in the violation being attributed to them and the process for resolving these events are documented in Board Procedures (see GENERAL INFORMATION tab on the website) and the Declaration for the BSPOA.
GUESTS should be cautioned to read and obey the rules and an Adult must maintain possession of the key and are responsible for any children 18 and under who accompany them. No one under 18 years of age may have possession of the KeyCard ever, nor may they remain on the dock without an accompanying Adult.
Failure to REGISTER YOUR GUESTS WHO WILL BE GIVEN POSSESSION OF YOUR KEYCARD will be considered violation of the Dock Rules.
