Dear POA Members,
We are excited to announce that the pool is ready to open for the summer season! Mark your calendars because opening day is scheduled for Saturday, July 1st. The pool will be open from 1 pm to 5 pm on that day.
Regular pool hours will be from Wednesday to Sunday, also from 1 pm to 5 pm. It’s important to note that there will be no lifeguard on duty, so please swim at your own risk and ensure your safety at all times.
We want to emphasize that pool rules will be strictly enforced to maintain a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone. Violations of the pool rules will have consequences. The first violation will result in a loss of 1 month of swimming privileges, and a second violation will lead to the loss of swimming privileges for the entire season.
To ensure smooth access to the pool area, all members must show a valid pass for entrance. No entry will be allowed without a pass. Additionally, please be aware that no individuals under the age of 18 will be admitted without an adult present.
To maintain a peaceful atmosphere, we kindly request that there be no music played at the pool area. Furthermore, horseplay is strictly prohibited, as it poses risks to the safety of all pool users. Lastly, we expect all members to refrain from using vulgar language while at the pool.
We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to these rules, as they are designed to provide a pleasant and secure swimming experience for everyone. We hope you have a fantastic time at the pool this summer!
Cherokee Shores President

If you choose to vote absentee, please note the following:

This means that if there are amendments to these proposals, your vote will not be counted on the final vote on these measures. If you desire to retain this ability, please attend any meeting in person. You may submit an absentee ballot and later choose to attend any meeting in person, in which case any in-person vote will prevail.”

Board & General Meetings are Saturday June 10, 2023!
Board meeting @ 9 am, General meeting @ 10 am
Unfortunately we will NOT be able to open the pool on May 27, 2023 of Memorial Day weekend. The pool inspector has told us that there are some repairs that MUST be completed BEFORE the pool can open. Those repairs will begin on May 29th. We will open the pool as soon as those repairs are complete. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we are committed to making sure that the pool is safe for your enjoyment. We will post when the pool will be able to open.
The process for filing a permit application has changed due to the Henderson County Ordinances. All property owners are now required to file an application for a Henderson County FloodPlain Assessment before clearing the lot. You can get the application from the Cherokee Shores POA office, and it will have the contact information for the Henderson County FloodPlain Coordinator. You can also get a copy of the procedures to follow. Before getting an application for a permit from the Cherokee Shores Architectural Committee, the FloodPlain Assessment process must be completed and signed off. We apologize for the change in process, but these ordinances and requirements are from the County, not the Association. This ordinance is in place to protect both you, the property owner, and the Association. Thank you for your cooperation in following the procedures.
The following are changes in the fees.
New Build or mobile home move in — $200
Property improvements – $15
Transfer fees – $50
Credit or debit card fees – 3.5%
Late fees – $25 monthly
