Summer News

A message from your POA Board…
“With summer upon us comes the opportunity to enjoy
more outdoor activities with friends and family.
As we take advantage of this beautiful weather,
we ask residents to please be mindful of the
rules and regulations that govern our community.
Have fun and be safe!”

BOATING:

  • Private Boat Docks and Community Piers: As a reminder, per Duke Energy restrictions, private water front docks are limited to one boat and two personal watercraft (PWC); docks at Community Piers (for non-water front homes) are limited to one watercraft ONLY (one boat or one PWC).
  • Storing of Boats, Personal Watercrafts and Trailers: No boats, personal watercrafts or trailers are allowed to be parked (or stored) on private property overnight, or for an extended period of time. A Community Storage Area (located on Tuskarora Trail Road) is a secure and gated storage area available to The Point community at a nominal cost. For more information about the Community Storage Area, please contact Hawthorne Management via e-mail at admin@hawthornemgmt.com or call 704-377-0114.
  • Dock Address Signs: The Iredell County Sheriff’s Department recommends residents residing on the lake display their property address on their dock to assist with emergencies that may occur on or off the lake. Dock address signs are available at the local Ace Hardware on Brawley School Road next to Food Lion. The sign is 6” H x 4” W with white lettering on a green background similar to our neighborhood street signs. The cost is $69.99 and the manufacturing lead time is approximately 7 business days.

BIKING:
North Carolina law defines a bicycle as a vehicle. That means bicycle riders generally have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. While bicycles are required by law to ride in the right lane, since Brawley School Road is only two lanes, anytime a bicyclist is traveling in one of the two lanes, they are obeying NC law. Furthermore, when a motor vehicle attempts to overtake a bicyclist (pass them on the left), the driver of the motor vehicle is bound by the same NC laws as they are when passing another car.

20-149. Overtaking a vehicle. (a) The driver of any such vehicle overtaking another vehicle proceeding in the same direction shall pass at least TWO FEET to the left thereof, and shall not again drive to the right side of the highway until safely clear of such overtaken vehicle.

As a reminder, after dark, bicyclist are required by law to have a white light on the front of their bike, and red reflector or light on the back. Additionally, helmets ARE required for children under the age of 16 at all times.

ACTIVITIES/ EVENTS ON THE VILLAGE GREEN:
The Village Green is a wonderful addition to our community and considered one of the “Common Areas” managed by The Point Owner’s Association (POA). This common area can be reserved for all types of activities and events hosted by members of The Point. Use of this area; however, requires approval by the Point Owners Association (POA) Board. If you would like to reserve the Village Green for a family gathering, special event or any other activity, please fill out the Online Form located at http://thepointatlkn.com/reserve-common-area/

*Please note, all activities and events must comply with current COVID-19 executive orders issued by the state of NC. 

EMERGENCIES, NON-EMERGENCIES AND REPORTING A CRIME:
If you have a fire, medical or life-threatening emergency call 911. For all Sheriff, Fire or EMS non-emergencies call 704-878-3100. This is the direct line to dispatch and is the best number to call for the quickest response.

REPORTING POA ISSUES OR CONCERNS:
Please note, the best way to communicate any POA problems or concerns is through our management company at admin@hawthornemgmt.com or contact them via phone at 704-377-0114.

Sincerely,
Your POA Board
