Please fill out a Water Vessel Agreement Form before attending one of the permit sessions or setting an appointment.
Q: Can I bring in a picture of my kayak to get a permit?
A: No. The HOA staff must place the permit sticker on the vessel themselves so the vessel must be brought to The Commons for inspection.
Q: Can I get examples of what kayaks are approved?
A: Yes. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for examples of kayaks or stand up paddle boards. The list will not be exhaustive of all your options; it is only meant to give you an idea of what is allowed.
