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.

Private piling Replacements & Bulkhead Repairs information:
This information is for Private Owners of canal lots. It is not part of LPCA, the Board of Directors, or any official involvement. Our LPCA Web Site is posting this as part of our "Community Bulletin Board" only!
Ed Hajek and Lin Senter (LP 2,Lot 47), & Mark and Roxanne Shinn, (LP 2, Lot 48) are in the process of arranging for necessary bulkhead repairs, and piling replacements and are asking if other canal lot owners are interested in repairs or piling replacements as the more participants involved, the lower the unit costs will be.
If you are interested in bulkhead repairs and/or piling replacement contact Travis from Neptune. His email is: firstname.lastname@example.org and for permitting contact Ron and Jocelyn Young Associates email is: email@example.com.
BOAT RAMP AND WATERWAY RULES:
Boat Ramp (Lot C) Gate Cards and Fishing Tags are the property of LPCA. They may be obtained from the Area 5 Rep – See “Contact Us” for current contact.
All boats moored in the canals must have a clearly displayed identification sticker with the owner's name, current address and phone number for notification in an emergency, e.g. sinking due to a storm.
When using parking lots or the boat ramp, a Lagoon Point Homeowners Parking Tag must be visible in/on your vehicle. Vehicles without a visible Lagoon Point Homeowner’s Parking Tag are subject to penalties for trespassing.
When fishing from the community beach or walking the private beach properties of others, your Homeowners Fishing Tag should be visibly carried on your person.
Please observe the waterway speed limit-NO WAKE!!
State regulations require the use of sinking buoy lines for crab pots inside the entrance from Admiralty Inlet. No crab pots may be set in the east or west canals except from owner’s docks and, in Lot C (the main entrance), pots may not be set where they may endanger boat traffic.
All residents must be aware that to climb on or fish from the jetty rocks is extremely dangerous. Any persons who climbs on or fishes from them, do so at their own risk. All residents are requested to discourage others from doing so.
- The Area 5 Rep shall be the custodian of the Homeowners Gate Card, Parking Tag & Fishing Tags Register.
- Homeowner’s Gate Card, Parking Tag & Fishing Tags may be issued only to Lot Owners provided the owner’s Dues and Assessment payments are current.
- Lost or Stolen Gate Cards and Tags: a LPCA Member will report a lost or stolen Gate Card, Parking Tag or Fishing Tags to their Area Representative or the Lagoon Point Board immediately. The lost or stolen Gate Card will be deactivated as soon as possible. If the Gate Card, Parking Tag or Fishing Tags are stolen, the LPCA Member will file a Police Report with the Island County Sheriff’s office. They will provide a copy of the Police Report to the Lagoon Point Board to avoid the replacement Gate Card costs of $150.00.
- When a property is sold: An LPCA Member will return the Homeowner’s Gate Card, the Homeowner’s Parking Hang Tag and the Homeowner’s Fishing Tags to the Area 5 Rep (Dick Kuss) and notify the Lagoon Point Treasurer upon the sale of any Lagoon Point property. The address to return is 3675 Oceanside Drive. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- The LPCA Member will be charged a $150.00 fee at escrow if all 4 items are not returned and that Gate Card will be deactivated.
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.
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.
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.
Property Owners can get more information from the Member's area of the website.
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).

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.
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.
