Joint Committee Annual Report

April 1, 2021

~ Michael Atwood

The North Tower Pool will open Friday, April 2nd . Pool users will need to bring their own tables and umbrellas as the pool furniture will not be placed on the deck. We look forward to returning the facilities back to normal operations once the CDC and government officials provide us with clear communications that the pandemic challenge has eased and we are no longer in a position where your safety could be compromised.  Thank you for your understanding and for doing your part in keeping your fellow residents and our community safe.

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, 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), Joe Gosiewski, Treasurer (BRRA), and Roger Grigg, Director at Large (NRA).
