As of December 3, 2021 Maintenance fees/dues will be mailed out this coming week

The Board thanks you in advance.

As of December 1, 2021 It is with great appreciation that the Board of Directors announces that Steve Howard will end his services, and will no longer be the Manager of Bear Lake West POA as of December 31st, 2021.

Steve has spent countless hours, days, years, worry, and stress to see that the POA has operated well. When there have been emergencies, Steve has always been the "go to" person - whether it's snowplowing your roads and cul-de-sac pulling you out of the bar ditch, or just being the question-and-answer person.

We all wish Steve well in his future endeavors. 


For future questions feel free to find Board contact information under the Board Members tab above.
