Our Annual Meeting will be held September 1, 2018, at the Conservancy.  One of the agenda items will be the election of three Board members.

Five property owners have been nominated by the Nominating Committee.  In alphabetical order, they are:  Rex Cowdry, Fred Craig, Maggie Glezer, Tom Manley, and Alan Reyner.  Their brief biographies are available here.

Additional candidates can be nominated by petition, as described in an email sent to property owners on July 3.  Petitions are due July 18.

A full agenda and proxy ballots will be sent approximately 30 days before the meeting.


These meetings will provide important information about options for Middle Island roads, leading up to a vote of all property owners in late July. 

The first meeting was held June 9 at the Conservancy, and the second on June 30.  You can now view the slides for the following presentations on-line: 

  • The Board's presentation about the costs of road options  (click here)
  • Preserve Middle Island presentation advocating for a private community with private roads   (click here)
  • Paved Roads Advocacy Group presentation advocating for paving and turning the roads over to the Village   (click here)

A final meeting will be held at the Conservancy Theater:

  • Saturday, July 7 at 4 pm

We hope you will be able to join us in person.  If you cannot attend in person, you can attend using your phone and GoToMeeting.  Full information on how to join by phone, how to see the slide presentation on-line, and how to ask questions or make comments will be sent by email before each meeting.


For the fourth consecutive year, all assessments were paid.  Thank you all for your prompt support of our association and our activities on your behalf.

Our combined Annual Meeting and Annual Budget Meeting was held at the Conservancy at 3pm on November 25, the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.  The Agenda and the Presentation can be found here under the Annual Meeting listing.

The Annual Meeting of the Association include interim presentations about the road options and the Cape Creek Dock and Ramp, and ample opportunity for property owners to ask questions and to comment on the work to date on these issues.  

The Annual Budget Meeting approved the 2018 Operating Budget, Reserve Funds Budget, and Annual Assessments, adopted by the Board on October 2.  Those budget documents are found here under Materials for the October 2, 2017 Board Meeting.  (They are also included in the slide presentation for the Annual Meeting.)  The proposed annual assessment will increase between 1.9% and 3.9% depending on lot type, our first increase in three years.  This increase primarily reflects our expectation that the Youngs will use less of David Ward’s time in 2018.  To the extent that there is an operating fund surplus at the end of 2017, the Board proposes that 50% be returned to property owners as a credit against 2018 dues, with the other 50% applied to the General Reserve Fund.  

The new Officers of the Association and Members of the Board can be found here.
