SUMMER WARMTH BRINGS EVENING GATHERINGS
Posted on Jun 24th, 2022
Our long awaited summer has arrived with warmer weather, longer days, open windows and social gatherings.  Please remember when you have social gatherings we are in close proximity to our neighbors, and we encourage you to adopt Good Neighbor Policies which are described in SBOA's Standard 4.1.
   For summary or printed copy - click here       
         
 Noise Odors, and Lights
                Noise, odors and/lights should not intrude on the peace and tranquility of your neighbors,       except for traditional 4th of July and New Year's Eve celebrations, or special events such as weddings.  Amplified music should not be allowed to intrude upon neighbors or the neighborhood.
 
(These Standards are based on Island County's Public Distances and Noises 9.60.030 and apply between 10:00 PM - 7:00 AM and are under the auspices of the County Sheriff)
 
Good Neighbor Steps: 
When planning a large and/or potentially noisy event, please inform your neighbors so they are prepared for a noisy evening
Even though your neighbors have been informed, please be considerate of them.  Keep your music loud enough so you can enjoy it yet low enough so the sound will not disturb others
If you are still partying after 10:00 PM, please move the party inside.
 
Neighbors of the Party Steps:
If you are comfortable or are attending the event, you may remind the party giver to temper the sound and move inside after dark
While we hope all considerate neighbors, if the loud noise, odors or lighting persists into the night, you may call the sheriff's non-emergency phone number (360-678-6116) and report the issue.  They will respond.

QUICK SAND ALERT
Posted on May 30th, 2022
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.

BEACH CLIFFS HAZARDOUS
Posted on Mar 2nd, 2022
Reiterated from previous notes:  With all the wind and water, slide hazards continue! 
Rem, A slide at Saratoga Beach occured recently.    Everyone needs to keep well away from the cliffs at our beach.  
This was the area where people carved names into the sand - adding to the danger.
Some young children (unattended by a responsible adult) were seen playing at the beach recently on one of the cliff slides.  This is EXTREMELY dangerous.  The children were warned off but soon went back to playing there.  The community members who saw them do all of this engaged them in a game with their own kids and kept them safe.  This time. All young children must be accompanied by an adult.
 
Enjoy our beautiful beach but, please, keep safe.
