The Blue Lake Estates Property Owners Association was formed June 19, 1965 to manage the community when that function was released by the developer, Blue Lake Properties, Inc. The BLEPOA inherited the Building Restrictions and Protective Covenants instituted by the developer for Unit No. 1.
It immediately set about developing more restrictive covenants for Units 2 through 8 to afford the community some protection regarding minimum building sizes, nuisances of all kinds, and abandoned property, (including vehicles in disrepair).
In 1998 a new unit, Hilltop at Blue Lake Estates, was formed and annexed into the Blue Lake Estates Property Owners Association. New and more restrictive covenants govern Hilltop at Blue Lake Estates but it is also subject to the covenants of the remainder of Blue Lake Estates.
In 1970 the lake level was lowered 31 feet, and the property owners association took that opportunity to add retaining walls and deepen the boat launching area in Devil’s Hollow Park.
Major modifications were made to the water plant to improve filtration and purification in 1973. The water plant and distribution lines were turned over to the LCMUD #1 in 1979.
The POA purchased the golf course from the developer in 1972 for a price of $25,000. It then set out upon slow but steady improvements to the course and enlarging and improving the clubhouse.
Annual dues of $200.00 per lot with a house, $100.00 for vacant lots, are assessed to provide for the fulfillment of the maintenance and management obligations of the Blue Lake Estates POA.
