Effective Friday morning the Pits will be open with the below listed restrictions. These restrictions come from the Health Department NOT your Board of Directors. No playgrounds may be used, again from the Health Department. The pool will not reopen because there are no employees to work.
  1. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms STAY HOME
  2. A barricade will be erected with one entrance and one exit.
  3. Limited occupancy within the barricade is 8 people.
  4. Players must provide their own chairs, horseshoes and Corn hole bags. NO SHARING!!
  5. Social Distancing of 10 Feet.
  6. Proper hand washing.
Again, this is the Health Departments rules not the BOD. We had to have lengthy conversations to be allowed to open at all. Everyone please follow these rules and above all BE SAFE and look out for your neighbors.

"No Wake" Buoys in Deerchase
The new "No Wake" buoys have been installed at the Deerchase boat landing thanks to the help of Al Freer. I am getting complaints about people fishing at the boat slips. There are NO FISHING signs posted at all slip areas. Please don’t fish there. There is a fishing pier at Groundhog. I also have received numerous complaints of people parking longer than 24 hours in the 24 hour boat parking at Deerchase. I will be monitoring this closer due to so many complaints.

Construction started today of handrails on the fishing pier. Some property owners voiced their concern about no handrails and we are working on it. Also, loose posts on the slips are being replaced with new posts. Thanks to everyone for taking care of our slips and boating areas. If you have any recommendations or concerns please contact Terry Milligan.

River Ridge Closings
Message from Terry Milligan - Board President

Everyone should know by now there are positive Covid-19 cases within our community. One of the individuals made a heart felt post on Facebook. To try and stop any further infections the BOD has decided to close all common areas, Pits, Pool, Basketball and Tennis Courts and all playgrounds. The camping sites will be closed also. No one likes this but we need to take precautions. The names of the individuals has been posted to Facebook. If you have had contact with any of them, please get tested and keep to yourself. Thanks for your cooperation and if you have any questions please contact a Board member.

Message from the Association Office:

In an effort to identify mailboxes not being used we are asking if you currently receive your mail at a box located at the front gate to contact Debbie at the Association Office with your box number and lot number. If it is determined that there are boxes available and your name is on the waiting list you may be contacted.

Confirmed Covid-19 in River Ridge
We did confirm an employee at the pool tested positive for Covid-19. We have contacted the health department and have closed the pool per their instructions. They will be contacting us to get all the names of everybody involved and will be sending out notices.

Board Meeting Minutes
It's been a long time since we saw board meeting minutes posted. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic all River Ridge activities were cancelled along with the board meetings. I did get the minutes for the March meeting as well as the latest budget report. There were also minutes of an emergency meeting held in July.

Boat & Jet Ski Parking
A designated area for Jet Ski parking has been established in the Deerchase area. Please park all Jet Skis between the Jet Ski Only sign. All boats should not park in this area and all Jet Skis should not park in the boating area. This will allow us to better utilize the 24 hour parking area.
