As a Beachcrest homeowner you are a member of our community association in which the board needs to collect annual dues to maintain our community properties. At the May 2024 annual meeting the annual dues increased to $622 was ratified. 

As a Beachcrest homeowner you are a member of our community association and, occasionally, the board need to request a special assessment to pay for larger project costs for our community properties. At the May 2022 annual meeting a one-time special assessment for $800 was ratified. There is no other special assessment being considered.

Our annual property owner dues and any special assessments provide for our operating and maintenance expenses for our:

  • Community property which includes ground maintenance, bluff management, roadsides, vegetation trimming, playground/entrance park and nature trail upkeep/maintenance;
  • Infrastructure/assets such as roads (including graveled beach roads), gates, stormwater drainage, cabanas, playground equipment, signs, and storage sheds; and
  • Administration expenses for stuff like banking, taxes (both federal and county), VIS accounting fees, audits, member communication, insurance, utilities, sanitation, reserve studies and various community events throughout the year.

Each home has been issued two fobs that open our beach gate from 4:00 am to 10:00 pm. Those fobs should transfer to the new owner when a property is sold.  If fobs are reported missing, they will be deactivated. Replacement fobs may be purchased for $25 each by the owner. No more than two fobs are assigned to each home address. Please use the Contact Us form for any questions and VIS for new and replacement fobs.

The Board of Trustees have a few areas of oversight that require residents to submit a request:

  • Any issue involving community property – including our streets, right-of-way, parks, beachfront assets, marina, and nature trail.
  • Any vegetation management along our bluffs, such as tree trimming.
  • Home construction –  to assure set backs are in line with community & county requirements.

If persistent dog parking is an on going issue. especially at night,  the person you should contact is the neighbor with the dog.  For best results, informing your neighbor in a respectful manner that their dog is affecting your sleep.
