The Board has received several comments from residents expressing dismay that the library, run by the Stitham’s for 14 years, is closing. The Board discussed this and options at the March meeting. They agreed that the library adds value to the community, is used by many and offers a service that adds to the enjoyment of the beach.
The Board is happy to announce that they have decided to reincarnate the library near the parking lot entrance to be managed by the recreation commission. More info to come as plans progress. Volunteers are encouraged to contact Beth Kelly. The Stithams will provide guidance and advice based on their implementation and successful management of the library. The Board expressed appreciation for all they do to enrich our beach community.

Seeking Board of Governor’s Candidates!
Each year, three positions on the POW Board of Governors become available. Property owners who are interested in the Point O’Woods thriving are perfect candidates for the Board. The Board consists of 9 property owners who work to offer recreational opportunities; ensure security; focus on the safety and quality of the beach, grounds, roads and facilities; financial operations and all things that contribute to the well being of the community.
Board members serve for 3 years and each has an area of focus (Beach, Boat Basin, Recreation, Security, Roads, Grounds, Security) that could change each year. The Board meets once each month during March – November to address current and future issues, budget, future planning, and gain input from other Board members and property owners on their focus areas.
The Board has benefited by having a diverse group of members who bring varied talents, experiences, and knowledge to ensure its ability to address the broad range of issues the community confronts. The Board membership has included property owners who are successful sole proprietors, Coast Guard, physicians, teachers, engineers, single parents, stay at home Moms, relocation specialist, accountants, attorneys and more.

If a property owner believes a tree that is next to their property and believed to be on Point O’Woods property, is dying or dead and believed to be in need of removal, the property owner will need to do the following:
- Provide a recent survey of their property showing the tree on Point O’Woods property with dimensions, markings or “pins” to show the property lines.
- If the property owner does not have a recent survey, they will need to have said area surveyed by a licensed and certified survey company.
- They will need to have their property “pinned” or marked with proper markings so we can review land titles and verify property lines.
- They will need to send this information to the Board of Governors for review.
- Once verified, the Point O’Woods Board will take steps to have said tree(s) removed.
Stumps will not be part of the removal process. The Board is only willing to take down tree(s) to protect property and for concerns of safety.
