COVID-19 SPECIAL CONDITIONS NOTICE

UPDATE For Current Members!
Access to the boat ramp is now temporarily available via the beach house parking lot entrance located by the Pavilion on Swan Lake Drive. There will be restricted hours (9am~8pm) for those gates over the next few weeks and then it’s planned that the barrels will be removed prior to the Memorial Day holiday.
Current members MUST have a valid 2020 vehicle parking permit decal clearly visible on any vehicle parked at Swan Lake common areas. We suggest placing it in the middle of the front windshield behind the rear view mirror for community consistency.
Unaccompanied vehicles will be towed.
Two vehicle stickers are provided to all current members. If you need additional stickers for additional household members, the cost is $5. Email request to BOD@swanlakeestates.org  Verification of residency will be requested. Any persons sharing stickers with non residents will be subject to their membership being cancelled.

This is by far one of the most unusual situations we’ve encountered in our lifetimes. Due to state issued “shelter in place” executive order in affect due to COVID-19 we feel it’s necessary for the health and safety of our residents to suspend all gatherings on Swan Lake Estates common properties at this time. We are very sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.  We truly feel that we will not regret choosing safety first for everyone and appreciate your patience and support during this difficult time for everyone. 

With this situation in mind, we are issuing the following temporary Rules for common area amenity usage.  Swan Lake reserves the right to add / change / update this list as the current situation warrants, so please check back regularly to stay informed.  We also post information on the Swan Lake Estates Facebook page.  Follow us on there at www.facebook.com/swanlakeestates/

These rules are in addition to the current ones in affect.

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY:

  1. No rentals of the clubhouse or beach pavilion will be considered at this time. We will continue to allow essential church members only to access the space for conducting live stream services from there for their congregation.
  2. The parking area by the dam is closed. Swanson Towing has been contracted to immediately tow, without warning, any vehicles parked there without a 2020 vehicle parking sticker.  This area has been taped off and any persons caught removing said tape will be subject to trespassing charges.  
  3. The boat ramp by the beach is closed. No boats shall enter the lake from that access point until further notice.  Current members having gate keys may access the big island ONLY and utilize that boat ramp during this time.  No exceptions.  Absolutely no motorized boats, canoes, kayaks, etc may be put in the water from any of the other islands. Gate locks were changed last fall so if you have not yet exchanged yours, email your name, address and key # to BOD@swanlakeestates.org to schedule a meeting for replacement.   If you are a current member and do not have a key to exchange, email the request to the prior email address and be aware that there is a $30 deposit fee to obtain a key.  Vehicles putting boats in on the big island may leave the vehicle and trailer parked there only while boat is in the water.  Parked vehicle must have 2020 parking sticker clearly displayed.  SHUT THE GATE AND LOCK IT BEHIND YOU UPON ENTRY AND DEPARTURE.  Any member discovered sharing their key, membership card, sticker, etc during this period of time of the “shelter in place” order to a non-resident or non-member will be subject to membership cancellation for the 2020 season.
  4. Current Members ONLY shall have access to the lake for fishing. As usual, absolutely no fishing from beach area.  Fishing along dam and from islands is permitted.  Current member of household must be present and any unattended vehicle parked utilizing Swan Lake amenities must clearly have 2020 vehicle parking sticker displayed.  It is suggested that sticker be displayed on front windshield behind rear view mirror.  Additional vehicle stickers are available for $5 each to current members.  License plate number of vehicle it is to be displayed on must be provided prior to issue in order to control stickers being shared to non-members. 
  5. Playground equipment located at beach area and Gene Adams Park next to the spillway is hereby closed until further notice.
  6. As always, Board members are not responsible for incidents occurring on the public roadways within the subdivision and do not provide security services. Call Henry County Police Dept at 770-957-9121 for issues requiring their services. 

Stay safe and take care of each other.

Please remember to clean up any trash when you enjoy the lake and leave only footprints behind.
