NO open air fire devices for the 2014 season
About the opening and closing dates.
We appreciate your thoughtful responses to the concerns that we have for open flame devices such as, fire pits, torches and chimineers. And, we understand your disappointment with the ban. We are most concerned about the safety issues of open flame devices, ie tiki torches, fire pits, because of our many trees and the close proximity of cottages. The fire department shares our concerns. While there are no official bans, from state or town, on these devices we feel it is in the best interest of Salt Air Village to ban them at this time.

As to our opening and closing dates. We always officially open on May 15th unless it is on a Sat. or Sun. Columbus Day weekend is our last official weekend of the season and that date changes because it is a Monday holiday. For instance, if Columbus Day fell on the 10th we close on the 11th.

I hope this is helpful.

I look foward to the beginning of a new season and seeing all of our families!
Connie

Roads within the Village are dusty and vehicles going over the posted 5 MPH speed limit make it worse.
Please keep your speed down.

Dogs   
We are getting complaints of cottage owners walking dogs and not picking up after them. If this continues the Village will be forced to revert to the old rule of NO dogs on Village roads. Which could lead to NO DOGS at all. Please think of others and clean up after you pet.
Remember ONLY cottage owners are allowed pets.
Visitor's or renter's CAN NOT have pets within the Village. They will be required to remove the dog.

A short time ago we allowed cottage owners to walk their dogs within the village.
This does not seem to be working out. Many dog owners are allowing their pets to "mess" around the ball field.
There is plenty of space in the large area behind the shuffleboard's.
Please use the above areas for your dog's. And clean the mess
If the ballfield and other areas continue to be used the village might have to revert to NO DOGS on roads or village common areas.

Only cottage owners may have their pets within the village.
Renter's and visitor's may not.

Swimming Rules for Chase's Ocean Grove Beach

DO NOT loose your bracelet. DO NOT pass on to others not in your cottage.
Logs are kept at the office to show which cottage and how many bracelets it has received.

As of September 6, 2010 (Labor Day), all members of Salt Air Village will be required to wear a beach bracelet supplied by Chase's Ocean Grove.

We have been advised there will be spot checks for the swim bracelets. Anyone found without a Chase's swim bracelet may be asked to leave Chase's beach.

Each Village member will be supplied with a number of this beach wear. Bracelets will be given out at the Saturday, members only meeting. Other Salt Air Village members will have to pick them up at the Salt Air Village office.

Remember the use of Chase's beach is a privilege not a right.

Please make sure you have a swim bracelet before going to Chase's beach.

Be advised that no tree service is allowed to cut in Salt Air Village.
Except services provided by Salt Air Village.
To have your insurance problem resolved take the following steps.
a. Salt Air Village needs a copy of the letter of Substandard Condition for your cottage.
b. On your cottage insurance companies letterhead.
c. You can mail, e-mail or bring a copy of the letter to Salt Air Village's office.
