ACE Security Phone Number

We are pleased to advise you that as a further enhancement to the POW security, which we all consider a significant priority, in connection with our security provider ACE Security, a dedicated cell phone has now been issued and will be maintained by the lead guard for our residents’ use in notifying the guards of any issues, problems or suspicious activities.  This will expedite the efforts by the guards to respond to all inquiries and issues.

Between 9:00 AM and 1:00 AM the next day when the guards are on duty, if you need to report a security problem or issue, please call the security guard on the following cell phone number:


If an issue arises between 1:00 AM and 9:00 AM, please utilize the non-emergency telephone number for the Old Lyme Police:  860-399-2100 – prompt #4 for dispatcher.  Of course, if the issue is an emergency at any time, please call 911.

We are pleased to continue to provide enhancements to the security of our community.

Boat Storage on the Beach SOLD OUT

In recent years, the demand for beach boat storage has nearly doubled. Our current system of granting permits using a first-come-first-served process is not sufficient for the growing needs. Thanks to the efforts of Lou Patria, we have constructed two paddle board racks which allow us to handle additional paddle board storage. 

This season we allocated all available space before the end of Memorial Day weekend. There are a few applications that will need to be waitlisted because of the increased demand. The Board will be discussing possible solutions for a new registration process and if it’s possible to create any additional storage using the current space on the beach. 

We understand that this year in particular, to accommodate social distancing, residents require as much space as possible for beach use. We hope to have a solution for next year and welcome feedback on the process.

For those who registered before spaces ran out, you can pick up your stickers at the parking lot shed Saturday, June 6, 2020 between 10:00 and 2:00.

‘Hammer Law’ Period 6/25 until After Labor Day

HAMMER LAW – 6/24/2020

The season is fast approaching and we all want to enjoy it. Things are different this year but one thing that is not different is the peace and serenity intended by ‘The Hammer Law’, also known as ‘The No Hammer Law’. It is laid out in the POW Charter as follows:


Title II, General Regulations, Chapter 7, Section 2

“There shall be no construction work performed inside or outside of a dwelling during the period from June 25th to Labor Day in each year. There shall be no interior or exterior maintenance, renovation, or demolition that results in excessive noise or that results in the disturbance of a person’s right to peace and tranquility during the period from June 25th to Labor Day in each year. Provided however, that the ordinance commissioner, upon application by a property owner, may authorize such construction, maintenance, renovation, or demolition work during the aforementioned time period provided the applicant demonstrates an emergency condition exists. The ordinance commissioner shall report all such applications, and his or her decision to the next Board of Governors’ meeting. The Board of Governors may, by majority vote, approve any application which was either denied or not acted upon by the ordinance commissioner.”



Please inform your contractors that they must complete their work on 6/24/2020. If work continues after that date, the property owner is responsible for fines. Extensions or permissions for work between 6/25/2020 and after Labor Day must be for emergencies only (i.e., broken plumbing, leaky roof, etc.).

If you have questions about the work you are doing, you can contact the Ordinance Commissioner, Carl Filios at

Boat Storage on the Beach – Kayak, Paddle Board, etc. Stickers


This has been a year of uncertainty. Due to caution regarding beach openings, beach boat storage applications have been received on a first-come-first-served basis but checks for application fees were held in case they would need to be returned.

The good news is that the program will continue for 2020 unless a greater authority requires us to close it. Checks will be processed next week, the sticker numbers allocated and a distribution event will be held at the pavilion Saturday June 6, 2020 10:00 to 2:00. After that, the stickers will be available at the office or you can request them to be mailed.

Parking, Golf Cart and Boat Basin Stickers

To comply with social distancing and reduce the groups that congregate during the sticker distribution process, stickers will be distributed as follows:


Mailed along with the annual report 5/22/2020. Per standard procedure, stickers will not be mailed to those with unpaid taxes, WPCA bills or ordinance violation fines. Proof of payment is required before stickers will be issued.


Memorial Day weekend, at the pavilion Saturday and Sunday 10:00-2:00. Please be considerate of the staff and wear masks since social distancing of 6 feet may be challenging. Do not congregate closely

Boat Basin stickers will be distributed to those who have registered, have a slip assignment and provide proof of current registration.

Golf cart stickers will be distributed after registration fee and form are received, an inspection is done and proof of insurance is provided (current year, no electronic forms please)

Beach Boat Storage sticker distribution is are on hold until 6/6/20. when the BOG will decide the status of the program. 

Thank you for your patience as we work through the redefinition of processes to comply with the COVID-19 guidance.
