Dear Parkshore Lot Owner,
Over the years, it has been communicated to residents of Parkshore that they are allowed to fish in the stormwater retention basin that is located behind the homes on Buckman Street and Westwick Place. Recently, we worked with the Association’s legal counsel to research the Association’s legal obligations with respect to the basin. We have determined that there is an easement that is granted to the Association to maintain the basin, there is no easement granted to Parkshore owners to enter onto the lots owned by individual owners surrounding the basin. As a result, anyone who enters onto an owner’s lot so that they can access the basin to fish may be considered trespassing.
Based on this information, we want to clarify that the Association cannot grant residents of Parkshore permission to enter onto another owner’s lot to access the basin. It is up to the discretion of the residents who own property that includes the basin, to allow access to the basin that is on their property.
