Fees and Assessments

Bent Tree property owners had three payment options for their 2018 fees and assessments:

  • Pay the entire amount in full by March 1, 2018.
  • 6 month installment method with six equal monthly installments (first payment was due on January 10 and final payment will be due on June 10).  There is a $5 per month charge to pay by installments ($30 total for the 6 month plan).
  • 12 month installment method with twelve equal monthly installments (first payment was due on January 10 and final payment will be due on December 10).  There is a $5 per month charge to pay by installments ($60 total for the 12 month plan).

Needless to say, if you haven’t made a payment yet this year, no matter what option you chose, you are now delinquent.

The Board of Directors raised the Annual General User Fee (AGUF) to $425 for 2018.  The AGUF is mandatory for all improved properties and is optional for vacant lot owners.  The AGUF affords the following privileges/memberships:

  • GOLF – A Single Limited Golf Membership – one member of the household may play rounds of golf after 1:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and after 3:00 p.m. Sunday (after 1:00 on Sunday until the time changes on March 11) without having to pay a greens fee.  Call the Golf Pro Shop for tee times.  Upgraded memberships are available for additional fees.
  • TENNIS – Unlimited play on outdoor hard courts, for all permanent full-time members of the household*, during normal tennis center business hours.  Call the Tennis Center for court reservations.  Upgraded memberships are available for additional fees.
  • POOLS – A family pool pass for all permanent full-time members of the household*.
  • ACCESS THROUGH AUTOMATIC GATES – Two resident bar codes for vehicle access through the automatic gates.
  • BOATS – Boats must be registered, but there is no charge for boat decals (there is a fee for boats stored at the boat rack area).

* Eligible household members = Property owner and their spouse/partner, and their children under 21 years of age who reside in the household.

The “Double wooded lot, over an acre, level lot, easy build” piece of property closed earlier this month for $20,000.  Click here for a 2014 post that includes a video that starts right by the lot.

Hummingbird Camouflage

Cardinal flowers (Lobelia cardinalis) are blooming along the streams in Bent Tree. A hummingbird was darting away from the flower when I snapped this picture. The background vegetation is the perfect camouflage for the hummingbird.
