The CCAPOA Board is excited to welcome our membership back for what promises to be another memorable year living in the Gates!
YOU ASKED, WE LISTENED - MEMBERSHIP IS NOW OPEN!
For years we have been asked for membership renewal to be earlier than previously offered. We have listened to our members and are now opening up renewal 3-4 months early so members can use the beaches and facilities as soon as they open in the Spring.
KEY CHANGES FOR 2022
* Membership year is now January 1st to December 31st.
* The Early Renewal/Signup discount applies to all dues received before March 15th.
* Beach improvements, including the Beach 13 Seawall to preserve the shoreline
* Boating improvements, including the boat ramp resurfacing and gate replacement
* Expanded coverage for the Beach Patrol to maintain exclusivity of the beaches
plus, new for this season...
Boat & Docks introduces a new streamlined payment system - members will now be invoiced directly, no need to fill out forms or pay online. If you have a boat and/or boat service, you will receive an invoice in the coming weeks, as long as you have renewed your membership beforehand.

We have been busy over the long winter working hard to make sure that this year will be another great year for our membership. Here are just a few of the highlights for the coming year:
BOAT SERVICES - A MORE EFFICIENT & STREAMLINED SYSTEM
Over the winter we have revamped the entire process of how you register and pay for your motorized and non-motorized watercraft, moorings and dock slips. For 2022 you will receive a single invoice for services based on what you registered the prior year - simply click, pay and you are done for the entire season! We are still field testing the process, more information will be available in the Boating Services Hub as the season gets closer. Members will receive an email invoice within the coming weeks, as long as you have renewed your membership beforehand.
Beach 13 Seawall is planned for 2022. The Board began the process of protecting the beach shoreline in 2019 and this year we are continuing this effort to include Beach 13. More information will be forthcoming once we have a confirmed timeline for installation.
At the end of last year, we took steps to replace and update the digital lock access for the boat ramp. Implementation has seen a vast improvement in accessibility and a decrease in the amount of member issues. We continue the upgrade in ramp facilities in 2022 with the replacement of the ramp gate, moving to a more secure entry system. In addition, the boat ramp itself will get a major overhaul for 2022. We plan to completely resurface the ramp with concrete to replace the crumbling cinder blocks and gravel. The new surface will extend from the gate into the water and provide a consistent platform to launch your watercraft. More information will be forthcoming on when construction will begin and will include temporary arrangements on where members can launch while the ramp is closed.
EXPANDED COVERAGE FOR BEACH PATROL
In response to some concerns from our membership, the beach patrol hours for 2022 will be extended earlier in the season when our properties are initially opened, in an effort to maintain their private nature and exclusivity to members. Similarly, beach patrol will be enhanced on days where we hold member events to ensure that non-members are not permitted to attend.
GROWING OUR COMMUNITY
At CCAPOA we love to see members enjoying the Parks & Beaches and all we have to offer. We also know that there are residents who are not aware of all we have to offer, so this year we are aiming to increase our membership, while offering more value to our current members. Watch out for regular emails and website updates about more entertainment events, more family friendly social activities and more community outreach.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
