– Michael Atwood

The Joint Committee (JC) is the overseeing organization for the Barefoot Resort Residential Association (BRRA) and the Nonresidential Association (NRA). In other words, the JC has oversight over all of Barefoot Resort (excluding Tuscan Sands) for single family and multi-family residents.

The Joint Committee is responsible for the maintenance of all common areas. This includes the landscape overlay, irrigation, and street lights on all spine roads (Club Course Drive, Marsh Glen Drive, Barefoot Resort Bridge Road, Windy Hill Extension, Catalina Drive, Oyster Catcher Drive, Waterview Drive, Par Ave, and Links Drive).

The JC is also responsible for the North Tower pool & spa, an amenity shared by both the BRRA and NRA Associations.

All owners contribute to paying these maintenance costs in their monthly HOA fees. One-third (1/3) of the common expenses are allocated to members of the NRA and two-thirds (2/3) of the common expenses are allocated to members of the BRRA.

The Joint Committee is made up of five (5) members. Two (2) are appointed by the BRRA and three (3) are appointed by the NRA. The current board members are: Michael Atwood, President (BRRA), Dargan Grigg, Vice-President (NRA), Tom Staats, Secretary (NRA), Bill Schulz, Treasurer (BRRA), and Jim Cranford, Director at Large (NRA).

Renter Reminder: Use of the North Tower Pool…

If you rent or plan to rent your unit, on a short term basis, under one year, you will need renter cards that will only access the North Tower pool & spa and your community pool; however, the renter cards will not allow access to the Beach Cabana amenities. Please refer to the 2019 rules for BRRA regarding the new towing procedure.
