Advisory Votes Results
There were two proposed advisory votes to determine the community's interest in Community Patrol preferences and a proposed "all-inclusive assessment" structure. Below are the results of those items. Please note, advisory votes do not constitute a formal vote, they will be used as a survey to help gauge interest.
Community Patrol Services
The purpose of this advisory vote was to determine the community’s top priority when evaluating Community Patrol decisions. The advisory vote asked members to rate which was most valuable:
- Conveniences (ease of access and relaxed gate policies)
- Cost Savings (taking significant cost-saving measures)
- High Level of Patrol (high level of Community Patrol services and stricter controls)
Results: There were 1,026 votes for high level of patrol, 623 votes for cost savings, and 283 for conveniences. The majority were in favor of high level of patrol.
The purpose of this advisory vote was to determine the community’s interest in a streamlined fee structure that would eliminate additional fees to all members for golf cart and vessel registration decals; vehicle RFID stickers; lake, golf, and facility use fees; CLPOA sponsored instructional activities; and would also include an estimated $400 annual dining/bar credit at the CLPOA restaurants. The increase to current member assessments under this proposed structure is currently estimated to be $560 annually or $47 monthly.
Results: 381 in favor and 1,077 against. The majority were not in favor of this all-inclusive assessment advisory vote.
