Repeating for Good Measure

There are several articles that appeared in recent  Island Reports that bear repeating here:

New Tree Approval Process
We heard you! As a response to concerns raised at the Annual Meeting, BHA has worked with the Village of BHI to lessen the confusion for owners about who to contact regarding tree trimming or removal. CLICK HERE to learn more.

Dead or Dying Redbay Tree Removal Process
It is easy to spot the Redbay trees that are dying or are already dead due to flooding and/or the Laurel Wilt disease. IMPORTANT: Even if they're dead, approval must be received to remove all trees.  CLICK HERE to learn more about how to receive approval and dispose of them properly.

Alleys in Cape Fear Station
Several property owners have contacted BHA about the alley assessments BHA is required to collect to maintain the alleys in Cape Fear Station. CLICK HERE to learn why the alley assessment has always been an obligation of alley owners and how BHA is working to help eliminate that assessment.

Contact BHA for any questions. Call 910-457-4676, ext. 21 or email Carrie@BaldHeadAssociation.com.

BHI Club Makes the News

BHA joins many others on BHI with mixed emotions to learn that long-time Club General Manager Robert Norton has announced his retirement at the end of 2019. Robert's extensive knowledge and endless grace over the past 13 years has helped the BHI Club become one that is revered throughout the golfing world. After 40 years in the business, we are very sorry to see him leave but pleased that Robert will be able to spend more time with his family.
