2013 Access Lot Rules


The board is required to maintain the Access Lot and the facilities thereon in a manner which makes it an inviting recreational and watercraft access area for our residents

In an effort to maintain order and ensure the access lot is being used by residents, parking passes have been issued for use at the Access Lot. One parking pass is issued for each homeowner with up-to-date dues.

There are 198 homes in the Bahia Bay Community so parking is first come first serve with a parking pass.

All vehicles without a pass will be towed. All vehicles parked after hours will be towed.

There is no overnight parking at the access lot. Parking is not available for special events. If you have multiple guests, they should park at your home.

Please contact Ann Pappas to pay your dues and collect one parking pass. Please contact Janice Takes if you have already paid your dues and need a parking pass. Please provide advance notice to Ann and Janice. Last minute requests may not be able to be accommodated due to personal schedules. Board Members 2013-2014 (Michelle, Janice, Ann, Jackie, Miriam)
