The Board of Directors have voted to discontinue the $7.00 per month for a Park Manager. This was done to help ease some stress from the budget. It was done in an open Board meeting and will be discussed in the next open Board meeting. Anyone who has paid this will have a credit on their account that will be reflected on upcoming statements

Did you lose something?
If you lost it, we may have found it. Every year Security acquires an interesting collection of, well you name it and it has probably been turned in to the office. We are currently trying to reunite several items with their rightful owners.

FOUND: Very nice, large beach bag full of diapers and snacks. Found at the park. Please claim it at security office.

FOUND: Many, many keys! If you have lost any keys over the last few months, please check with security office. They have dozens of lost sets of keys.

There might even be a cell phone or two if you're missing one.

If you are missing an item please visit the Security Office. If it is not there please report it missing so if it shows up in the future, we know where to return the item(s).

From the Association Office
Since the COVID outbreak in March of 2020, the United States Postal Service has been experiencing service delays. River Ridge has been on the receiving end of this as many of you have. The Association Office has been impacted by this through not receiving payments and invoices from our vendors. We have addressed this problem with the local post office regarding our mail delivery and have been told that the Richmond location where our mail is sent for processing has had and is still having staff problems.

If you have any questions regarding your payment(s) sent to the Association Office, please contact the office DIRECTLY and immediately so that your concern can be addressed and resolved correctly and in a professional manner. At anytime you can access your River Ridge account through the TOPS portal which will show your account balance and all of your posted payments. If you are not currently set up for this, contact the office and we can assist you. You may also pay your bills over the phone by a debit or credit card; (434) 636-2989.

The office hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM. If you are calling after business hours there is an answering machine that you can leave a detailed message and your call will be returned on the next business day. You may also send an email to Riverridgeoffice1@gmail.com.

This is also a reminder to all property owners to make sure the Association Office has your current mailing address, phone number & email address (if available).

Vandalism Photos

Click image to enlarge
As you know by now, on Memorial weekend two of our bath houses suffered senseless vandalism. Mirrors were smashed, fixtures broken, doors ripped off the hinges, a water pipe was completely broken off from the wall causing flooding. The bath houses were closed due to the damage inconveniencing campers and their guests who came out to enjoy the lake. Maintenance had to make time for these repairs delaying scheduled repairs and maintenance.

I have received photos of this crime and they have been posted to the Photos page. This matter has been turned over to law enforcement.

Click here to see more photos.

Vandals Identified
On Friday night two of our bathhouses were vandalized and had to be shut down for the weekend. A few individuals with a combined IQ of a donut hole decided it would be fun to smash mirrors and shatter toilets and water lines to flood the bathhouse. The Mecklenburg Sheriff's Department was called and a report was filed.

After extensive review of camera footage, River Ridge Security was able to identify three suspects in the vandalism of the bathhouses. The matter is in the hands of Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Department.

Correction To January Board Meeting Minutes
I would like to point out an error in the January board meeting minutes. Under Open Discussion regarding the Grapevine Now website, Connie stated "We do pay the yearly fee for her..." referring to the annual fees to maintain this website. This statement is NOT true. I have NEVER received any money from River Ridge to maintain this website. I have been writing this site since 2003 and ALL fees have been paid by me.

In the past, there were a few property owners who made private contributions to help with some of the costs of running this website but those stopped abruptly and now I guess I know why.

Updated Blue Rules
The River Ridge Blue Rules have been updated as of January 2021. You can view the revised Blue Rules on the Documents page of this website or pick up a copy at the Association Office.

Security Vehicle Lights
Security vehicles now have flashing green lights on them. If you see these flashing green lights please move over and let them pass. They are handling security issues or leading Rescue personnel to where they are needed. Thanks for your cooperation.

2021 Boat Decals
2021 boat decals are now on sale at the Association Office. All watercrafts are to be registered to only property owner(s). You must provide a current registration at the time of purchase. NO EXCEPTIONS. Decals purchased after March 31st will be charged a late fee.
