Beach Reconstruction Project is beginning

Starting the week of January 21, 2019, a project on the beach will begin. This project is to replenish beach sand, cover the concrete and reinforce some of the dunes. The builders will be using the CSA beach path to build a “sand bridge” to the left of the CSA stairs and move associated vehicles down to the beach. This project is expected to take 3-6 weeks, but could be affected by bad weather. We don’t anticipate any restricted use of the CSA stairs, but it would be a good idea to give a wave to the builders so they know you are there. Any necessary restoration of the beach path will take place upon completion of the project.

It is also necessary to store some building materials in the parking lot during the project. This material will be on the side of the parking lot and will be taped or fenced off.

The Board will be monitoring the project closely, so please let any of the Board members know if you would like more information; the builders may also refer you to the Board if you have questions. Thank you for your cooperation as we maintain our beautiful beach.

Beach Parking

The beach is open year-round to Carleton Shores residents and their guests. To properly identify association member and guest vehicles, the Board issues CSA Parking Permits. These are hanging tags that are to be affixed to the rear view mirror, placed on the front of the dashboard, or taped to the rear window of the vehicle. Please note: These tags are numbered and have been assigned to each family.

REMINDER: The permit use is not limited to high-traffic weekend hours. All vehicles parked in the beach parking lot must have the permit displayed, regardless of the time or day. Vehicles that cannot be properly identified or are otherwise parked illegally WILL BE TOWED.

It is important that you are aware that we have contracted with a towing company and they will tow illegally parked cars at our request. If you see cars without proper tags you should contact Marianne DePamphilis (617-721-9918) or Kathy Siranosian (508-680-4161). They have authority to request a car be towed.

Replacing lost beach parking tags

Each lot has been assigned four numbered beach parking tags. These numbered tags are recorded with your name so that we can better monitor and control the use of the tags. These tags will be voided if lost or stolen.

Please note: If you have lost a tag or tags and require a replacement, you must return whatever tags remain from your set of four and you will be charged a $25 fee for each missing tag. You will then be issued a new complete set of four tags. You can contact Kathy Siranosian at 508-680-4161 or for replacements.

Volunteer Beach Parking duties

Kandi Zarba and Mike Myers manage the volunteer beach parking schedule. If you have volunteered, you will receive a schedule in early June showing all volunteers and dates of coverage. If for some reason you cannot cover your assigned slot, please attempt to switch with someone else on the schedule. Thank you for your participation! This program has been very successful is keeping our beach parking lot available for residents and their guests on summer weekends.

If you haven’t yet volunteered to man the beach parking lot, please do so. It is a great way to meet your neighbors.
