Island View Street Sealing

The streets of Island View are being sealed starting Tuesday, Sept. 22 and continuing through the week. If weather interferes, street sealing will extend to Monday, Sept. 28. The schedule is as follows:

  • Sept. 22: Harsh Rd. where it borders Foundation Park and on Stoutenberg Dr.
  • Sept. 23: Wesleyan Dr.
  • Sept. 24: Epworth Lane and the middle section of Harsh Rd.
  • Sept. 25: Fourth Street and the rest South Harsh Rd.

This work will interfere with normal traffic use. Please minimize traffic through Island View during these dates. Harsh Rd. will be impacted on three of the four days and Fourth St. for one of the days. There will be signage to accommodate traffic, but it will be best to keep street use to a minimum.

Lakeside Chautauqua Realty Property Management Agreements Due

Lakeside Chautauqua Realty (LCR) is requesting homeowners who plan to rent their cottage in 2021 to submit their Property Management Agreements promptly. The urgency for this request is to better serve homeowners and cottage renters, as LCR will now update rental listings, start promoting available cottages and book reservations as soon as agreements are received, rather than waiting until February. It’s strongly suggested not to wait until January to submit the Property Management Agreement to receive this new benefit.

Agreements will be mailed to homeowners in October. For questions, contact LCR rental agent Denise Monak at (866) 952-5374, ext. 348. LCR would like to thank homeowners for opening their cottages to Lakeside guests and the opportunity to serve you.

Infrastructure Study Proposed as Next Step

Throughout the Master Planning process, the community expressed concern about Lakeside’s overall infrastructure, most notably the streets and storm water system.

Improving Lakeside's infrastructure is a complex, long-term and significant project. Laying out an infrastructure plan:

  • Outlines the scope of the projects and plans for the future
  • Determines a realistic phasing of projects
  • Calculates the cost
  • Gathers feedback from the community on project ideas

One should note that this type of detailed planning will need to take place for each Master Plan initiative. Read more...

Homeowners Guide

As a resident in a National Historic District, each homeowner is, in effect, the caretaker of a treasured piece of history. Owners know that older homes take attention and special care. However, Lakeside Chautauqua cottage owners have seen their efforts rewarded, not only in beauty and charm, but also in property values that have risen significantly more than comparable housing in surrounding areas.
