Artesian Lakes Community Association


Amenities Artesian Lakes Community Association (ALCA) is a gated community adjacent to The Retreat at Artesian Lakes (RAL). While RAL is not part of the Association, their amenities are available to ALCA owners via a shared use agreement.

The resort has an artesian-fed swim lake with 2 water slides, along with a salt water swimming pool. There is also a 12-person hot tub, bath house, roof-top sunning deck, shaded sand terrace, picnic tables, gazebo, and a fire ring. A small fitness center is located across from the pool.

Owners have access to the boat house which is located at the corner of Smith Loop N and Smith Loop W. The boat house is open air with a small kitchen, restrooms, and picnic tables. There are 7 artesian wells that run at all times to keep the lake levels high. A boat slip can be rented through the front desk of The Retreat for $100.00 per month.

To prevent the infestation of the lakes with Zebra Mussels and other invasive species, policies aplicable to all lakes and waterways within the Artesian Lakes boundary have been implemented to minimize the possibility.

Board of Directors
Board of Directors The Association is operated by a 7-member Board of Directors (6 elected and 1 appointed by the declarant) who volunteer their time for the benefit of the community. A list of the current board members is available on the Key Personnel page.

The directors are elected by the membership at the annual meeting. The Board appoints the officers after the annual. If a director is unable to complete their full term, the Board will appoint someone to fill that seat until that term expires. 

The Board meets 5 times per year to conduct the business of the Association. The annual meeting of the members is held in December, with notices mailed to all owners 10 to 60 days in advance of the meeting. Meeting agendas are posted here at least 144 hours prior to the meeting.

All meetings are open to owners to observe. If there is a specific topic owners would like placed on the agenda, please contact the Board President at least 10 days in advance.

Assessments The assessments are due on January 1st of each year and provide for services in the community. Every owner has an obligation to pay the annual assessment. If you do not receive a statement, please submit an accounts receivable request to C.I.A. Services to confirm your balance and ensure it is paid on time. The Association offers semi-annual, quarterly, and monthly payment arragements.
