Association begins work on East Port Dog Park


The new East Port Dog Park construction is well under way. Fencing is in place; seating and fountains are being installed over the next few weeks. The area will be closed off until construction is completed. The new park will provide a fenced area where dogs can socialize and play freely without leashes. The POA plans a ribbon-cutting ceremony once construction is complete.

The POA will begin the Tennis Court Rehabilitation Project on November 21. The project, approved by the Board in May, will renovate the Tennis Courts and surrounding area. Renovation will include court resurfacing, replacing the mesh windscreens and fencing, caulking and striping, rail installment, pressure washing and fresh paint. The project is expected to complete in four to six weeks.

Lighthouse Halloween

The Lighthouse Haunted Halloween Party will take place inside the Lighthouse Bar on Saturday, October 29, from 9 p.m. until closing. This 21-and-over event will feature a bar menu, costume contest with a prize, free giveaways, and other frills and thrills. The “Bad Dancers” band will perform. A valid ID and POA card are required at the door.
