SLPOA has entered into a license arrangement with SLCWD to provide boat storage for Serene Lakes residents for the 2015 summer season. Seasonal (that is all summer) boat storage will be provided at two locations: Bales and Lot 1. Bales is open to all Serene Lakes residents and SLCWD rate payers. The fee for seasonal boat storage at this location is $25 per boat for SLPOA members and $50 per boat for ratepayers that are not members of SLPOA. Lot 1 is free and is open to SLPOA members only. There are 165 storage spaces at Lot 1 and 95 storage spaces at Bales. At Bales, spaces will be assigned on a first come, first served basis; however, preference will be given at Bales to residents north of the pump station including the areas north of Frosty Way and Beacon. There will be a maximum of one seasonal boat at Bales and two seasonal boats at Lot 1, unless space permits for additional seasonal boats which will be assigned by lottery.

Seasonal storage for paddleboats and sailboats will be at Swiss Court/Serene Rd.

All other boat storage sites will be short term (boats may be left for no more than 3 days at each site). The fee for short term is $10 per boat for SLPOA members and $20 per boat for ratepayers who are not SLPOA members. Those sites are Allen (14 spaces) and Swiss Court/Serene Rd. (24 spaces, including seasonal paddleboats and sailboats) on Lake Serena and Castle, Beacon and Dulzura on Lake Dulzura (6 spaces, each). While you may have been issued a sticker, you are not guaranteed a spot every time you take your boat to a short term site. The spots are available on a first come first served basis. Preference will be given to residents on the west side of the lake for Swiss Court/Serene Rd. Preference will be given to residents on the east side of the lake for Castle, Beacon and Dulzura. Preference will be given residents around the Allen cul de sac and environs for Allen.  

Priority for all boat storage will be given to non-lakefront property owners.

The summer season will start at the sand fling and will last until Lot 1 is closed in the fall.

2. Release of Liability Form
. SLPOA is subsidizing the boat storage project by supplying racks and boat docks as well as volunteer labor to install the equipment and manage the project for the summer. Everyone who stores a boat has to realize that the boats are stored in an unsecured area. Locking the boat is the responsibility of the boat owner. SLPOA cannot be held responsible for theft or damage to boats or accessories. In order to participate in the boat project, each boat owner is required to sign a release of liability form. You can access the release form by clicking here. You will not be issued a valid boat sticker without returning a signed release of liability form. Release Form Here
