LSPOA Covenants and Protective Restrictions Rescinded

(posted 1/6/2021)

In November, 2018 an owner of a Westwood Shores lot began a quest to build a commercial storage facility.  The lot was governed by LSPOA Covenants and Protective Restrictions which restricted lot use to single family residential purposes.  LSPOA took actions to enforce this covenant restriction.  On June 10, 2020 LSPOA received a Notice and Demand letter from the owner’s attorney that provided information and citations to law raising serious doubt regarding LSPOA’s ability to adopt, record and enforce Lake Sherwood covenants and restrictions and threats of legal actions against LSPOA.  Primarily the letter alleged that because the original covenants and restrictions established by the Lake Sherwood developer, N.E. Issacson, did not contain a clause explaining how restrictions could be continued after they expired on July 1, 1999, by law the restrictions replacing them must have been approved by 100% of the Lake Sherwood and Westwood Shores lot owners.  They were not.  

 

LSPOA worked with its attorney on the situation.  The attorney recommended that we settle with the lot owner because he felt LSPOA would not win a case in court.  The court battle would have been very costly considering legal fees and financial awards to the owner should the owner win the case, which was likely. 

 

Settlement documents in response to the Notice and Demand Letter were developed and accepted by the LSPOA Board of Directors and the LSPOA Members in a manner required by the LSPOA By-laws.  These settlement documents released LSPOA of any liability and required recession of the Lake Sherwood Covenants and Protective Restrictions.  Therefore, Lake Sherwood lots are no longer governed by any LSPOA covenants and protective restrictions.  The Town of Rome, Adams County, and the State of Wisconsin have various regulations that continue to assist LSPOA to meet its purpose.  This purpose is:  Lake Sherwood Property Owners Association, Inc. is an organization formed to represent property owners in the subdivisions (additions) of Lake Sherwood. The By-laws governing this organization are written to insure the Association conducts business and undertakings of the Association in a proper and orderly manner and to assure that all Members of the Association are adequately represented and receive fair and equal treatment in these undertakings. The purposes of the business and undertakings of this Association are to preserve, maintain and improve amenities of the Association, the value of Lake Sherwood property, the water quality of Lake Sherwood and the ability of Members to enjoy their property.

 

LSPOA is a very active organization in pursuit of this purpose.  It diligently works to:

  • Represent Lake Sherwood lot owners through a volunteer LSPOA Board of Directors composed of Directors from all subdivisions that meet monthly, continually engage in LSPOA activities, and are resources to lot owners on amenities and lifestyle on Lake Sherwood.  

  • Operate the Lake Sherwood Lodge and maintain the LSPOA amenities for the pleasure and enjoyment of property owners and the community.

  • Communicate important information to lot owners through newsletters, a website, emails, and letters.   

  • Be a steward of Lake Sherwood and its surrounding properties by engaging in environmental, conservation and fish habitat programs including DNR Healthy Lakes, Fish Sticks, and Firewise USA Grant projects; as well as water testing for algae and e-coli.

  • Be a voice for Lake Sherwood lot owner interests in Town of Rome, Adams County, Tri-Lakes Management and other governmental influences. 

  • Provide recreational opportunities for lot owners such as the LSPOA Fisheree and 4th of July Celebration and the many opportunities provided atthe Lake Sherwood Lodge.

  • Actively participate in community needs, activities and endeavors as a responsible community member.   

  • Assist in educational endeavors of Member families through annual scholarships.    

Your continued support of LSPOA and its endeavors is imperative and appreciated by all who benefit.
