Spring Clean Up Day
Saturday, May 14th, 10:00 AM - 12 PM at Saratoga Beach
Come say hi, bring a dish to share (or just your own lunch) and some gardening tools!  Every year we gather to maintain the quality and usability of the beach and beach road.  We work hard and have fun!  There are spots to help with sign in, general gardening, painting, cooking (hotdogs or other), set up and cleanup in the cabana.  Storms this year have left us with plenty to do.  Come join in.

Committees and Projects

Water shares (hookups) are allocated by Washington State. All allocated water shares are currently distributed.  SBOA is in the process (years long) of applying for additional shares from the state.

Annual Community Water Quality Report published
Posted on May 29th, 2021
The annual report is now available.  Click here to check the report.  A copy of the report will be sent to all water shareholders with the July billing.
Posted on May 29th, 2021
PLEASE be advised that quick sand spots are a concern with the low tides that invite you explore the tide pools further out from the beach.  We already have reports of sinking up to your knees.  These areas are especially dangerous for the kids and dogs who like to chase the waves.  A dog whose rump sinks past your knee depth will have to be rescued!  Those large older dogs with bad hips are extremely vulnerable to injury.
Newsletter Going Digital
Posted on Mar 9th, 2021
SBOA's newsletter is now digital with the first emailed newsletter sent the week of April 1st.   As always, the newsletter will be posted on the website as well and excepts will be at the well site bulletin boards.  A few print outs will be available on request for residents who reside in the community. We prefer you to visit the website and print your own copy.  This is not only a convenience for members, but also a cost savings measure in both postage and employment hours.

It is unlawful for dogs to leave the property of their owners without being on leash.  Or for them to chase "game" animals, such as deer, rabbits, birds. It goes without saying that dogs should not be chasing our neighborhood cats. Barking dogs which annoy 3 or more separate households are also in violation of the County statute. The penalty to an owner for such incidents can include pound fees and other fines.  In the case of roaming animals, it might also result in your dog's loss of life if law enforcement deems the animal dangerous.  (See our Community Standards section for more detail.)  Please do the neighborly thing and keep your pet under your control at all times.
ALSO - neighborly dogs have owners who clean up after them on walks :)  Please bring a poop bag along with you so that all of us can continue to enjoy walking our lovely community.  Thanks, in advance!
