Clubhouse & Kountry Kitchen Closures
Clarification on Clubhouse and Kountry Kitchen closures:
The Clubhouse and Kountry Kitchen are closed to open (non-rental) use. They are available to rent at the regular rental rates for each building. This information was clarified with the Association Office Staff last week. They know that they are able to rent these buildings to property owners.

New Office Hours
As of May 1, 2022, the River Ridge Association Office will be open Wednesday - Saturday, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

Ballots Mailing This Week
Here is a copy of the letter that is being mailed with ballots to Property Owners ahead of the May 28th in person vote for raising the Annual Assessment to $850. Volunteers spent several hours making sure that all ballots were mailed appropriately. Each mailing holds a copy of the letter, a ballot and a return envelope for each lot up to 3 lots. If you own more than 3 lots, you will get 2 mailings. Please make sure to mail them back in enough time to have them received in the office by the 25th if you are not able to come vote in person.


May 2016 - Increase Of User Fee II
Evidentially there is some controversy over the year that User Fee II was put into effect. The office has sent a copy of the document from May 2016 announcing the increase.

Please direct all inquiries regarding this matter to the Association Office at (434) 636-2989 or to your board members via the Discussion Forum.

Credit Card Fee
Effective May 1, 2022 there will be a $2.00 fee when using a credit or debit card at the Association Office, Security Office, and Golf Course.

$60.00 Water Fee
The Board of Directors at the April 9th, 2022 meeting has discussed and decided that if you have a water meter that is locked and not being used you WILL NOT pay the $60.00 for 2022/2023 dues.

Property Auction
Payment deadline updated - 04/14/2022
The annual River Ridge property auction is scheduled for Saturday, August 6, 2022 at 10:00 AM at the Clubhouse. Owners of properties on the auction list have until Friday, August 5, 2022 the day of the auction to pay in full. Click here to view the auction list.

Finance Committee Documents
The River Ridge Finance (Budget) Committee has provided the following documents to the website in hopes that this will help you have a better understanding of our Expenses and Income. If you have any questions, please reach out to the committee through the Forum and they will be happy to help!

Board Changes
Terry Milligan, President of the River Ridge Board of Directors has resigned and Kevin Jetter has moved into the position of president. Paul Harvey has moved into the Vice President position left by Kevin. Pamela Raymond from Groundhog Village has been appointed to the Board and has taken over the responsibilities of Boating and Fishing.

Annual Fees
I received a notice of our annual fees due May 1, 2022. As you are aware, the increase was voted down so we will be operating on a bare-bones budget. The amount due this year will be $310.00 per lot.

Assessments $250.00
User Fee I $60.00
Total $310.00

Call Before You Dig
Earlier today my phone and internet service stopped working for no apparent reason. I reported the problem to the phone company then changed my plans for the day since I now had to wait for the repair person. It turns out that a neighbor was digging and cut through my phone cable. I was lucky the repairman was able to find the problem since the person responsible did not bother to report the damage.

It is your responsibility to call VA811 (formerly Miss Utility) prior to ANY digging and also to report any damage. You could cause serious damage to not only your underground utility lines, but also those of the neighborhood you live in. You also risk being fined, electrocuting yourself or even worse, ticking off your neighbors.

Call VA811 prior to ANY DIGGING!
Dial 811 or 1-800-552-7001

Virginia state law requires anyone who digs to notify Virginia 811 before starting. Digging can be dangerous and costly without knowing where underground facilities are located. By calling Virginia 811, you contact all member utilities with one call. Always call before you dig and you have taken a very important step to make sure there will be no damage.

Website Updates
There have been a few updates to the website:
  1. River Ridge Building Codes have been updated. Page 2, regarding storage sheds, has been changed from 266 square feet to 256 square feet.

    • Shed: storage sheds no more than 256 sq feet do not need a permit from Mecklenburg building department but will require one from RR and the Mecklenburg zoning department and must be 7 1/2, feet from all property lines

  2. The Bass Tournament page has been taken down so the button has been removed from the webstie. If another page is set up, please contact me with the details so I can add this back to the website.

  3. Last but not least, our propane prices have changed.
