7 - New Rules Proposed for Dock & Piling Projects

The LPCA Board is proposing implementing a policy to regulate member’s use of the Lot C boat ramp and parking lot to protect the common property from damage and the membership from liability that could result from those projects.  Our Bylaws require any new rule proposal to be published in the newsletter and allow for member comment.  Click on the Newsletter tab and open the Winter Newsletter Jan 2020.   Please see the article “New Rules Proposed for Dock & Piling Projects”.  This is your opportunity to weigh in on this important subject before it goes into effect.


8 - LPCA Bulkhead Restoration Project, Details and plans:
Bulkhead Restoration Project Rev1 2019

10 - Understand the Jetty Sandbar Entrance!

The SANDBAR is back and worse than ever.  If you are new to Lagoon Point, it is important to understand the Jetty entrance.  Mother Nature will change the channel whenever she feels like it. Talk to experienced neighbors.  Study it yourself at a minus tide sometime.  We will post aerial shots from time to time to help but they may be out-of-date a month later.  Check out the GALLERY tab.  Look under WATERWAY & JETTY as well as Aerial shots.

Traversing the Jetty Entrance Safely!

If coming into the jetty from Puget Sound, LOOK FIRST!

Just as understanding the sandbar at the jetty is important, it’s also important to learn the “RULES-OF-THE-ROAD” regarding transiting the jetty to COLREGS or Coast Guard laws.  The LPCA Board of Directors has posted a sign referring to those rules on the Lot C storage shed.  PLEASE READ THEM.

If leaving Lagoon Point towards Puget Sound, SOUND YOUR HORN!!

Look in the margin to the left as well as in a picture format on Gallery tab under Waterways.

11 - Waterway Spill Emergency Contacts:

See Contact Us tab
In the event of a spill (oil, fuel, etc.) or vessel sinking, the following people must be contacted. These people have access and training for the equipment located in the shed at Lot C Boat Ramp.

12 - Pet waste

Thanks to all LPCA pet owners for bagging their pet waste but also need to not leave the bags scattered around Lot C and along LP streets. Bags should be brought home and disposed of properly.

13 - Welcome to Lagoon Point

Lagoon Point is a private residential community with friendly, caring neighbors, world class sunsets, and "sometimes" good fishing.

Prior to the residential development in the early 1960s, the point area was a salt marsh lagoon. Developers dredged out the marsh and created building lots with access to canals for private boat moorage. Some of our residents have homes with their boats moored at their back doors. Others have Admiralty Inlet in their front yard and others, on the hill 200 feet above, have a sweeping view of Admiralty Inlet and the Olympic mountains.

Toward the south end of Shorewood Avenue is a classic old farm house that was formerly a duck hunting lodge. One half mile north on Shorewood Avenue is the only bridge that is fully on Whidbey Island, (Deception Pass Bridge connects Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands).

15 - Lagoon Point Community Association

HISTORY AND PURPOSE OF LPCA: In 1960, the lot owners formed the Lagoon Point Improvement Club as a non-profit corporation to develop and maintain the common properties. In 2006, the lot owners changed the organization's name to "Lagoon Point Community Association" (LPCA). LPCA common properties include two boat ramps, floating docks and launch area, a parking lot for boat trailers, a bulkhead and bridge, a jetty and beach areas.  For a full description of "Common Properties" visit the Docs & Maps tab.

ORGANIZATION: A Board of Directors consisting of six officers (elected annually) President, Vice-President, Secretary, Asst. Secretary, Treasurer, Asst. Treasurer and six Area Representatives (elected biannually) manage the affairs of the corporation.
