Lakefront & Lake Access Homeowners
ALL LAKE/PARK RULES APPLY
- Private Docks must not exceed 10x10 and must remain architecturally true to the original design as specified in the Restricted Covenant registered on title.
- Lake Access Docks and Pathways are the property of the Chaparral Residents Association (CRA) and all rules and regulations apply to these common areas.
- Lake Access gate keys will not be issued to residents. If a resident needs access to the lake access pathway, please contact the office a minimum of 5 business days prior to scheduling any deliveries or work so that appropriate arrangements can be made to gain access. The resident will be asked to fill out the “Lake Access Gate Permission” form. The form is reviewed and must be approved by the Facility Assets Manager.
- Life jackets are not required when lake access and lake front home owners are five-meter distance from lake front docks when using inflatables, otherwise life jackets must always be worn.
- Life jackets must always be worn when using personal boats, SUP boards, flotation devices on the lake.
- Pets of any kind are not permitted in private boats of any type, on private SUP boards or on floatation items. Pets are not allowed to be wading or swimming in the lake from public and private docks or from lake front or lake access shorelines. This applies in the winter months; no pets/animals are permitted to be on the ice at any time.
- Lake Chaparral Facility boats, SUP boards, and canoes are not to be docked at private lake home docks or lake access docks.
- After hours use of the park or lake is not permitted when the park is closed. Please respect the park and lake hours. Use outside of the designated hours of operation is deemed trespassing.
- Fishing from private docks is permitted but are subject to all fishing rules and regulations. Members are required to notify the lake office of the number of fish caught if kept.
- The chemical balance of the lake is a top priority with our staff. Residents shall not apply any form of chemicals to the lake water, algae or weeds in the lake. The staff regularly applies eco-friendly chemicals to control algae and weeds.
- Plants of any kind are not allowed to be added to the shoreline of the lake or planted in the lake bed. CRA Staff will remove any plant that they deem not part of the lake ecosystem.
- Please do not drain anything from your backyard (i.e.; hot tubs, pool water, chemicals, etc.) into the lake as it can have a major effect on the lake ecosystem and has the potential to change water/ice conditions which may result in serious and dangerous situations for residents and their guests.
- Maintenance of private docks is the sole responsibility of homeowners.
- The lake staff closely monitors the safety of the lake ice for public use both in the fall and spring. The nature of the lake ice makes its access and use inherently risky by nature, and all access and use of lake ice is at the sole risk of the member or their guests. However, it is strongly recommended that members and their guests DO NOT access lake ice before Lake/Park Management advises it is potentially safe to do so. Please be aware that notification will be sent to Lake/Access homes when thin ice signs go up and come down. Please address any questions to the Lake office at 403- 254-4148.
- CRA staff does not maintain any private skating areas.
- Lake Access private walkways are not maintained in the winter.
- Please be aware that noise does carry across water much more than land; the CRA asks that residents be considerate of their neighbors.
