UPDATED 11/30/2023, updates as of this date are marked in orange.
ACCESS TO AHCCA: Our community is gated for Co-Owner safety and security. Due to the increasing volume of people within the campground (known and unknown), theft, property destruction, illegal waste dumping, etc., the Board has implemented a change in the entrance into the park. New gate codes will be put in every April (water turn on date notification), July and October and all old codes will be removed. The same code will be in effect from October to April the following year until the water is turned on in the park, usually around April 15th). THE GATE (PARK) KEY IS DISABLED FOR ENTRANCE INTO THE PARK, YOUR KEY WILL STILL ALLOW YOU ACCESS TO COMMON AREAS SUCH AS: RESTROOMS, CLUBHOUSE, EXIT GATE ETC. SO MAKE SURE TO HAVE IT WITH YOU. THE GATE CODE THAT IS EFFECTIVE NOW THROUGH APRIL (water turn on date) IS LOCATED IN THE NEWSLETTER THAT WILL BE SENT TOMORROW.
The next gate code change date will be July 1, 2024, which will be reflected in the June 2024 Newsletter. If you do not have an email address the Board suggests you contact Ann McGowan Board Secretary and provide one for quick access to the codes (firstname.lastname@example.org). Only Co-Owners listed on the internal AHCCA contact list will be allowed access to the Code. Email requests for the gate code from non-owners will not be supplied on behalf of another co-owner.
WATER: The water in the park has been turned off for our winter season and will be turned on in the spring once all fears of frost are removed, which is typically after April 15th.
SEWER: DO NOT put ANYTHING down the sewers in the winter including water, as this causes pipes to freeze and crack and clogs in our sewer system.
SPECTRUM UPDATE: Spectrum continues to complete the install within the park, it is taking longer due to the hand digging of the lines. We are still using the current AuSable Resident WIFI and Spectrum cable as we have all year. An update will be provided once Spectrum is completed with the install, which will include the availability date of when routers and modems can be ordered.
GARBAGE: Off season - NO waste is to be left and must be taken home with you to dispose of. All dumpsters are closed and not to be used.
BUILDING CLOSURES: The center bathrooms, laundry room & clubhouse are closed for the season. The front bathhouse remains open for the winter season.
AED'S: The AED's have been moved inside to the men's and women's bathhouse at the administrative building for the winter.
WEBCAM: The beach webcam is now back up and running. The link can be found on our homepage or directly at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mp-HfJMWvA
SPEED BUMPS: The speedbumps have been removed, please continue to follow the campground speed limit of 5mph.
ANNUAL INSPECTION 2023: Every fall EGLE visits the park as part of the process to receive a yearly license. Compliance is essential with maintaining 4 ft. halo's around all structures, appropriate water / electrical line hook-ups, safety chains around propane tanks, and anti-siphon water devices on ALL water spigots. We have passed this years inspection. If your anti-siphon valve is missing at any time, you will be charged $10.00 for each device when the park manager replaces it.
(SPECTRUM (Previous 9/8 Update): Spectrum will be in next week to finish the cable box pedestals for all lots. Spectrum’s subcontractor A1 will also be in the park on 9/11 to begin hand digging all cable lines from the pedestals to each unit. We will be communicating via the website which units are ready for the owners to call into spectrum to receive their modem and router. Owners must be present at their unit to accept delivery of the modem and router (tracking numbers will be supplied).
Owners can then do a self install with their existing cable, or call back into spectrum to set up a tech to come out and install the equipment(at a later date). If the owner calls for a tech, they will install new cable into your unit and hook up the modem and router. This install will require the owner to be present. Owners can wait until spring if they chose to order their equipment and hook it up.
The website will be updated as the board receives updates from spectrum.
MARINA FIREPIT: The Marina Board has reversed their decision on the Marina Firepit and is allowing all owners of both the marina and campground to use the firepit. The campground rules and regulations have been updated to reflect this. Thank you to the Marina Board!
SPECTRUM (Previous 8/30 Update): Spectrum will be within the park this coming week, possibly as soon as Friday to begin the installation of cable utility boxes. Please be sure to not interrupt them while they are completing their work. If you should have any questions or concerns, reach out to a Board Member. We will continue to provide additional information as soon as it received.
SPECTRUM (Previous 8/16 Update): Spectrum has resurveyed the campground and the rewiring of the property should begin in 7-10 business days. It is anticipated that the wiring process will be completed shortly before the campground closes. The new wifi/video bulk project will proceed as follows;
Six weeks for completion of park wiring (from start date).
Upon completion, co-owners will be notified to activate their service and are responsible to facilitate the following:
- Modem/Router ordering, an 800 number for ordering will be provided. Modem/Router will be delivered via Fed Ex and/or UPS to the campground’s physical address (991 S State St). Co-owners must provide their lot number when ordering. Modem/Router will be delivered within 24-48 hours upon ordering; therefore, DO NOT order the modem/router for your unit until such time as you know you will be onsite to receive the delivery.
- Upon receiving modem/router, co-owners are responsible for self-installing the equipment. Self-installation is easy and technical support will be available and included in the self-install package. If a co-owner has an unsuccessful installation, technical support will arrange for onsite support.
All equipment is assigned to each co-owner individually by Spectrum and as such, each co-owner is responsible for the equipment. Modems/routers can be ordered until the campground is closed for the season, no deliveries will be made during the off-season. Upon reopening in the spring, modem/router can be ordered. Again, there will be a 24-48 delivery time frame as noted above.
The Association is responsible for the basic tv bulk package (including wifi services) which is included in the monthly fee of approximately $4,500+. Co-owners can upgrade the basic package, but will be responsible for the individual fees associated with any upgrade. All access points on the Resident AuSable network will continue to be operational.
Additional updates will be provided as they become available.
SPEED LIMIT: The Board continues to receive complaints regarding speeding. The campground speed limit is 5mph, please abide by this for the safety of all.
ANNUAL MEETING FOR CO-OWNERS: Thank you all that attended the annual meeting. Thank you Cathy and Kate for your time on the Board and serving our community! Please welcome our new Board Members Chris and Tom, their pictures and lot information is on the left!
LEASEE/RENTER FORMS: This form has been updated and can be located under the Forms and Bylaws tab, please use this new form going forward. All old forms should be discarded as they will no longer be accepted. All Leasee/Renter forms must be turned in at least 10 days prior to the arrival of the leasee.
COMPLAINTS/PARK ISSUES: All complaints or park issues must be documented in writing and given/sent to a Board Member or you can use the owners form on this webpage under the Forms & Bylaws tab (on the bottom of the page) and it will be electronically sent to the Board. All complaints are kept in strongest confidentiality amongst the board only, will be looked into by the Board and a response given back to the co-owner. We continue to "hear" complaints through out the park, but they must be documented in order to get to a resolution, this would include issues with pets off leashes, co-owners not cleaning up after themselves, blight issues, maintenance that may be needed within the park, etc.
SEWER: DO NOT place items down your sink or toilet drains, including flushable wipes, baby wipes, grease, etc., doing so causes clogging and makes it more costly to maintain our sewer system.
SECURITY: If you see something unusual, out of place or broken, please let the Park Manager know, or dial 911 if perceived urgent.
WALKING PATHS: Please use caution when using the walking paths, as many tree roots have upheaved the blacktop. These areas have been marked with paint to provide a visual caution until a contractor can be acquired to make the repairs. Remember these paths are for walking only; no bikes, skateboards, rollerblades, etc.
SURVEY: Plotting within the park is completed and some minor adjustments are being made. Several stakes have been removed, please DO NOT remove any wooden or metal stakes/pins on your property as these are legal markings. Each stake that has been removed will be re-staked and the Association will be charged over and above the original expenses associated with the staking. Please do not increase the Association's expenses by removing stakes. The Board will remove wooden stakes once all new mapping is documented, recorded and completed.
PET REMINDERS: This past season there were several complaints concerning pets i.e., lunging, unleashed, unmonitored, pet waste in and about the campground including pet waste in front of the park by the basketball net, etc. Please keep your pets on leashes at all times and clean up after them in EVERY area of the campground. The State of Michigan requires that all animals must be leashed at all times and under the owner's control. No pets are allowed other than those that are owned by co-owners.
Reminders for the Safety and Consideration of All:
You must be parked within your unit lot lines, please use the new pins/posts that have been placed at your unit. This is for the passthrough of boats, trailers, etc and most importantly - so emergency vehicles can pass through if there is a car coming the opposite way, as a few seconds can save a life.
Please respect other co-owners and follow the quiet time rule which is between 6am-11pm.
Please be cautious when swimming as boats may not be able to see swimmers. It is suggested to have a float or other item for visibility if you are a ways away from shore. It is also asked that all boaters stay clear of swimmers and approach the beach/seawall area slowly and with extreme caution.
Please clean up after yourself, a lot of garbage has been left along our beach and the beach to the north. Please be considerate and pick up all items when leaving, such as bottles/cans, wrappers, etc.
NO fireworks or sparklers of any type are allowed anywhere within the park including the beach area above the seawall.
NO fires are allowed, except below the metal seawall.
All dogs must be on leashes within the park, including the beach. Also, be sure to immediately clean up after your dog including feces and any holes that may be dug.
Use walkways (no bikes allowed); cutting through lots or between units is not allowed.
Grass Cutting: It is the responsibility of the unit owners to ensure that the areas of grass needing to be cut remain clear of any items which includes, boats trailers, hoses, yarn ornaments, goose/animal deterrents, vehicles, etc. It is not the responsibility of the lawn service to move these items or attempt to weed whip around/beneath them. Also, if you are using another owners unit to park your vehicle, they should be aware and provided approval prior to parking on them and it is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is moved so that the lawn cutting service can trim their grass.
Parking: Numerous parking complaints have been brought to the attention of the board and all co-owners need to ensure that they comply with the following parking rules:
Each unit must have at least one parking spot that is a minimum of 9' x 18'
All vehicles must be at least 2' off the road and 2' from their road side property lines
No vehicles can be parked in the road at any time
Only ONE vehicle is allowed per unit
You can only park in the marina if you own a marina slip (river slips are not part of the marina). You are also allowed only one car (parking spot) per marina slip that is owned.
These regulations are for the safety of all and those owners who do not comply will receive letters from the board. Please be courteous of other owners and the cost that occurs in sending these letters; along with the time associated with the board who can use the time to focus on more important issues within the park.
Marina: The marina now has a website and is managed by the marina board and this post to our site is to help get the information out as quickly as possible. Please share their website with any marina owners you may know. AusableHuronCondominiumMarina.com
