When will the Lake & Beach Club be complete?

Excavation of the lake is complete. During the spring of 2019, the lake bed preparation will continue and work will begin on the shoreline grading.  The stone for the shoreline is arriving on site and installation should start in July. Concurrently we will work on the installation of the lake aeration system, and the underground services and base preparation of the beach and park areas. The next steps will be to get started on the docks, walkways & boardwalks, tennis courts, playground, fencing, landscaping, and all the “fun stuff.

We are working towards an opening date of later in 2020 for the lake and beach area.  The opening schedule for the beach club building will follow but has not been finalized.

Lake, Beaches, & Beach Club

The lake is designed for non-motorized activities: swimming, fishing, canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking, ice skating, hockey,  ice fishing, and definitely some bubble blowing and splashing.

There are also plans for a concession space, Beach Club room rentals, equipment rentals, and programmed activities.

Are there any fish in the lake?

As long as the sharks don’t eat them first!   But in all seriousness, our hope is to stock the lake with fish, we are currently reviewing the logistics – stay tuned for updates about fishing.

Will there be a restaurant in the beach club?

There are plans for a concession space, but no immediate plans for a restaurant.

Can I rent items from the beach club?

The long-term plan is to have rental of some equipment for the beaches and lake from the Beach Club.  We are working on the details and logistics  – stay tuned for updates.

Home Owners Association (HOA)

Will there be an HOA or Homeowner fees?

There will be a HOA for Jensen Lakes and associated yearly fees.

What is an HOA and what does it cover?

The Jensen Lakes Homeowners Association (JLHOA) is a not-for–profit organization which will manage and maintain the Jensen Lakes community amenities and activities on behalf of the Jensen Lakes property owners.  The JLHOA provides the mechanism for maintenance of the private Jensen Lakes community amenities and to provide activities/programming.

Membership in the JLHOA is mandatory and is automatically applied with the purchase of a home in Jensen Lakes.  There will be associated yearly fees due from each property owner secured via an encumbrance registered on the title of each property.  The yearly fees will vary based on the level of lake access a resident enjoys (Standard, Private Lake Access Walkway & Lake Shore).

The JLHOA will initially be managed and administered by Melcor Developments.  Melcor will establish a Committee of Resident Directors who will work closely with the Melcor Directors and represent their community.  The election will be done at an Annual General Meeting and all property owners will be invited to attend and vote on various items including the election of the Resident Directors.  For detailed inquiries please contact: Triona Cosgrave, HOA Manager tcosgrave@melcor.ca
