and the area at the left of the front entrance). To view a map of the various areas, click here

May I obtain a list of homeowners with addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers?

Is the clubhouse available for rent by non-HOA members?
The current rules and regulations for the clubhouse do not permit non-HOA members to rent the clubhouse.
If I rent the clubhouse do I also have exclusive use of the pool?
The pool is not part of any rental of the clubhouse. The pool may not be exclusively rented.
When is the annual membership meeting of the Association?
The annual meeting is normally held in early summer. Notice of the upcoming meeting will be delivered to all owners
by first class mail with at least 10 days notice.
Are board of directors meetings open to the general membership of the HOA?
It is the policy of the board of directors to have open meetings. On occasion, the meeting must be closed,
or adjourned into executive session, to deal with sensitive issues such as personnel issues,
legal issues, and delinquency/collection issues.
What books and records of the Association are open for inspection and copy by the membership?
The membership is free to inspect and copy all governing documents, minutes of board meetings
(except executive sessions), minutes of annual meetings, minutes of special meetings, and financial records,
such as the balance sheet, profit and loss, and cash disbursements.
Many of these documents can be viewed and downloaded from this website.
If I want to make improvements to my property do I have to get approval?
Except for certain landscaping changes, any improvement to a lot within the Association requires approval
by the Association through its architectural review committee. Owners are strongly encouraged to submit
an architectural application for any improvements even if it is a question of whether one is required.
Architectural applications may be found on this website. Note: the architectural review committee has 15 days
to review the application, so please get the application in early to help prevent delay with your desired project.
How does the Duke waterfront lease work?
Duke Energy owns the peripheral strip that is a varying amount of waterfront property.
This can range from 3 feet to 50 feet depending on elevation. Duke Energy owns this property and the Association leases it.
Each owner with waterfront pays a certain amount per linear foot toward the lease amount owed to Duke Energy.
The Association is responsible for paying for the waterfront adjacent to the common areas, such as the area with the cabana.
The current lease expires in April of 2018.
Do I need separate architectural approval for improvements within the Duke peripheral strip?
Yes. Duke must review any plans for improvements within the peripheral strip.
Currently, the architectural review committee has coordinated with Duke to review the same plans
that are submitted to the Association. Note: permitted improvements within the Duke peripheral strip are greatly limited
and you must seek permission from Duke to remove trees in the peripheral strip that exceed three inches
in diameter three feet off the ground. Experience has shown that it is much better to seek permission if there are questions.
I am a resident of Crows Nest. How do I get information about the entry gate?
For information about the gate

How do I get an access code for the pool?
The clubhouse and pool amenity site is owned and maintained by the Belews Landing Development Company.
During 2018 it is being operated by the HOA.
