A Note from PIHA’s Acting BOD President – May 2022
May greetings from the acting PIHA Board of Directors (BOD) President,
Happy spring to all of you! It seems that Mother nature wanted to remind all of us that she is still around and can be quite angry! Elaine and I are glad that we all avoided more serious damage and that no one was seriously injured.
With the beginning of spring, I am sure that many of you are looking forward to all those wonderful activities that warmer weather brings. With that in mind, this month I would like to write about the campground.
As many of you know, we are going to replace the campground septic system this spring. The current and original system can no longer function properly and needs to be replaced. We anticipate that the replacement project will take 2 to 3 weeks, perhaps longer depending whether or not unforeseen complications occur. During the project the campground will be open, but there will be on-going construction operations and traffic to deal with. Together we will get through this with a much needed improvement for the campground.
I also want to discuss a topic that has been brought to the attention of the BOD. Several members of the association have expressed concerns that the current procedure for reserving seasonal campsites makes it difficult for others to reserve a seasonal site. It seems that there is also a perception “that once you have a seasonal site you have the site forever”. That perception also implies that there are not enough seasonal campsites to meet demand.
For informational purposes I would like to share the following with you:
There are currently 60 sites in the campground, 10 seasonal sites with sewer and electric, 26 seasonal sites with electricity only, 17 transient sites without sewer, 5 transient sites with sewer, 1 manager site and 1 camper rental site.
There are currently approximately 34 seasonal campers
There are approximately 38 members on the seasonal wait list.
The highest occupancy rate for a seasonal sites occur during the holiday periods, i.e. Memorial day, the 4th of July and Labor day. As a reminder, you cannot reserve a site more than 30 days in advance so plan accordingly.
Your campground committee has been investigating what new options, if any, can be implemented. Simply that includes (1) expanding the number of seasonal sites, (2) developing a scheme that would limit the time or number of years that a member could rent a seasonal site and (3) enhance the reservation process with the implementation of the new database management system. To be clear, No Changes will be made until further evaluation is done by the new BOD.
Once the new board is seated following the election in the annual meeting, I would anticipate that the campground needs would be a high priority. If you would like to offer suggestions or to make other comments for the campground management and operation, please address them to the BOD. As a reminder, after the new election I will no longer be on the board.
In closing, this letter most likely will be my last letter to the association. It has been my honor and privilege to serve you as a member of the Board of Directors. I urge all of you to work with the BOD to continue the enhancement of our association as we move into the future.
