Organization

The Village at Blue Mountain Beach is governed by a Master Owners Association of which

all owners are members. Currently the Master Association has 3 constituent associations: The

lot/homeowners are members of Village Cottages North Owners Association, the Village Place

Condominium Owners are members of the Village Place Condominium Owner Association, and owners

of the southside home/lots are members of the Cottages South Owners Association.

The President of each association represents the members on the master association. (The president of

Village Cottages represents the homes/lots on the Master Association Board. The President of the

Condominiums represents the condos on the Master Association. Currently the Southside Cottages

Owners Association is not active but if it were an active group, the President would represent them on

the Master Association.)

Community

Neighborhood Noise

Please respect the community and try to keep noise levels to a minimum,

especially after dark. Please try to avoid making loud noise between the “Quiet Time” hours of 10 pm

and 7am to allow neighbors a peaceful night’s sleep. If you have complaints of other guests creating

excessive noise, please contact the property manager/owner.

Mailbox Keys

The Village post office boxes are located on Village Boulevard at the Hwy 83 entrance.

Your assigned mailbox number may be obtained from the local Santa Rosa Beach Post Office. When a

property is sold, the current owner should transfer the mailbox key to the new owner or return the key

to AMS for distribution. If a key cannot be located, the owner may have the mailbox rekeyed by a

vendor of their choice at their own expense.

Pet Policy

The Village covenants allow only owners to have pets on the property. All pets must be on a

leash when outside and in full control of their owners. Pet waste must be removed. There are multiple

pet waste containers along Village Boulevard.

Parking

Passenger vehicles only may be parked on the designated Village common property. Our

covenants prohibit parking of boats, trailers, campers, and commercial vehicles except in designated

areas. Contact Nikki at AMS for the required permit available for short-term parking for these

restricted vehicles while the owner or guest is in residence at the Village. Permits must be affixed to the

vehicle and visible. Vehicles without permits or expired permits will be towed at the owner's expense.

Overflow parking for passenger vehicles is available in the north parking lot close to the Hwy 30a

entrance and parking area behind Condominium building #4.

Golf cart parking is available with the designated cart parking behind the pool (spaces 1 & 2) or in the

overflow parking area behind Condominium building #4. Condominium owners may rent designated

spots in the cart parking area behind the pool for long term parking and storage. Contact the property

manager for specific availability and cost.

Trash

All garbage must be contained in cans with closable lids. We are in close proximity to the

state forest and open trash receptacles invite unwanted critters. Please do not overfill the trash

containers. Ensure you tie any trash bags closed. Critters like open bags.


Condominium Garbage

  • There are designated trash disposal receptacles located behind each condominium.
  • Please refrain from throwing any trash, such as bottles, bottle caps or cigarette butts into neighboring properties.
  • If the receptacles are full in the station nearest to your condo walk down the parking lot and find the other containment areas….ONLY throw trash into containers that the lids can be closed.

Cottages Garbage

  • Homeowner owners should call Waste Management at (850) 862-7141 to set up initial trash service.
  • If you are renting, on checkout day it is YOUR responsibility to place the full garbage containers at the curbside for pick up.


Weekly trash pick-up schedule: Mondays and Thursdays

Landscaping Services

Lawn Care

Lawn care is provided by the Association’s vendor of choice. The lawn

care cost for both home lots and vacant lots is an additional cost to the quarterly Association

assessment. In December only, a homeowner may opt-out of lawn care services by the Association’s

vendor and utilize a private vendor for the service for the following year. Vacant lots do not have option

to opt-out. An Opt-Out form, available from AMS, must be submitted identifying vendor providing lawn

care within the property. The Opt-Out form outlines the standards that are expected for the

maintenance of the owner's property. If the property is not maintained to the prescribed standards, the

Association will have the work done and expense the owner.

Irrigation

The Village owns an irrigation system to maintain the common property in our community.

Homeowners may attach their lot irrigation system to the common system. There is no charge from the

Association to the owner for the water. The cost and installation of the irrigation lines on the

homeowner's property are the owner's responsibility. A controller is required to attach to the common

irrigation system. This controller is paid for by the owner and can be installed by the Association lawn

care provider.

Signs

No signs of any kind are permitted on the exterior of an owners property except one "For Sale" sign per property. The approved "For Sale" sign information may be obtained from the property manager at AMS.

Rentals

Short-term (3 days or greater) and long-term (6 months or greater) rentals are allowed in the Village at Blue Mountain Beach. Owners are responsible for any damages to the Village property caused by their tenants.
