POA Dues - $310 per year (Due January 1st)
Amenities Dues - $310 per year (Due January1st)

NOTE: The POA dues for 2024 increased from $265 to $310 per lot to offset a macroeconomic increase in labor costs (roads & water).  We have not had a dues increase in over 20 years, so thank you for your patience and understanding.

Please remember that if you have a culvert associated with your BLW property or driveway, you must keep it clear and flowing properly, not the County or the HOA/POA.
 
Damages caused by plugged culverts could/may be charged back to the owners in question.

Fires can and do happen.  Bear Lake West is considered to be a a brush fire risk by many insurance companies.  Also, our evacuation routes are very limited, especially during the Winter months, so it is imperative that we use extreme caution to prevent fires.  
 
What can you do to help?
 
1. No burning of wood, garbage or other combustibles outdoors in the subdivision.  
2. No fireworks, no shooting of firearms, no fires and no playing with matches.
3. Create a defensible space around your home.  This increases the chance of your home and structures surviving a wildfire.  Firewise USA has helpful tips to get started.
