SBOA Beach Cleanup
Saturday, May 15th, 10:00 AM to 12 Noon at Beach Cabana
Join the fun for this needed SBOA activity.  We love having our Beach and need to participate to get ready for the summer fun.  There is a potluck Bar B Que scheduled (Covid Permitting) with drinks, chips, cookies and the Burgers and Dogs provided.  Bring your own extras or sack lunch if you prefer.  There are chores for everyone, which usually include brush clearing, raking, painting -touch ups, or just keeping an eye on the burn pile.   Will be great to see old friends and meet our new neighbors!

Newsletter Going Digital
Posted on Mar 9th, 2021
SBOA's newsletter will be going digital starting with the next billing on the 1st week of April!  One final letter will go out with the bill to let people know.  As always, the newsletter will be posted on the website as well.  A few print outs will be available on request for residents who reside in the community.  This is not only a convenience for members, but also a cost savings measure in both postage and employment hours.

BEACH CLIFFS HAZARDOUS
Posted on Aug 22nd, 2020
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.

NEIGHBORLY DOGS
 
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!
