June 24, 2020
Good afternoon Rogers Bay Co-Owners,
We are pleased to announce there has been forward movement in the new driveway project. Earlier today, the North Topsail Beach Board of Aldermen held a meeting regarding the Special Use Permit for parking on the five commercial lots adjoining Rogers Bay. Representatives of our Board of Directors were present to represent the interest of the co-owners of Rogers Bay.
The commercial lot 1 and 2 owners have agreed to sign the necessary NCDOT documents and the Town of North Topsail has approved the parking plan. We would encourage you to view the Town’s website for the full meeting video or minutes of this meeting.
This parking permit approval will now allow the commercial lot owners to move forward with their plan to provide additional parking for Rogers Bay. We are excited about the benefits this parking plan will bring to our community, and we look forward to the execution of these agreed upon documents so we may now advance with the installation of our driveway quickly.
Rogers Bay Strong,
Rogers Bay Board of Directors

Good day, Rogers Bay,
This correspondence serves as official notification that the Rogers Bay Property Owners Association Board of Directors Meeting that was originally scheduled for June 20, 2020 then suspended due to COVID-19 will be held on June 27, 2020; unfortunately, this meeting will be closed to observers in accordance with state guidelines.
As you all know, North Carolina is still in Phase 2 of Governor Cooper’s Executive Order 141, which states: “Mass Gatherings are prohibited. "Mass Gathering" means an event or convening that brings together more than ten (10) people indoors or more than twenty-five (25) people outdoors at the same time in a single confined indoor or outdoor space, such as an auditorium, stadium, arena, or meeting hall. This includes parades, fairs, and festivals. In publicly accessible indoor facilities, the Mass Gathering limit applies per room of the facility. A household where more than ten (10) people reside is not a Mass Gathering. The outdoor Mass Gathering limit of twenty-five (25) people applies to groups of people that may gather together in a park, and on a beach or trail.”
The health and safety of our community members must come first. While the Board is aware that Phase 2 may be suspended on June 26, 2020, as of today these are the restrictions that we must base our decision on. It is our intent to resume meetings with observers in attendance as soon as restrictions allow. We are continuing to manage the business of Rogers Bay. We understand closing this meeting to observers takes away everyone’s ability to hear information first hand; minutes from this closed meeting will be uploaded to www.rogersbay.com as soon as possible. As always, if anyone has a question, comment, or concern regarding Rogers Bay - please submit in writing a detailed explanation of what you would like addressed by the Board of Directors.
At this time, all other previously scheduled meetings are still suspended pending restriction updates from Governor Cooper. We will update the website and email list as schedule changes arise.
It is our sincere hope that you are all safe and healthy, and we look forward to the day that we can all be together again.
Rogers Bay Strong,
Jasmine Knowles, Secretary
on behalf of Rogers Bay POA Board of Directors

The previously scheduled spring clean dumpster will be arriving any day now! So that everyone can make use of its availability - we plan to make sure one is on-site June 17th until filled also. Please schedule accordingly.
The charge for this dumpster is based on the type of material involved - we are encouraged to place yard waste and household trash ONLY in this dumpster in an effort to decrease expenses. Please do not overfill the dumpster or place appliances, mattresses, or other large non-household items in or beside either dumpster.
It is everyone's responsibility to keep the campground clean. We realize some people see an item or two beside the compactor and add to it, thinking they're doing nothing wrong, but we do not have anyone to regularly haul off items left at the dumpster. Please stop leaving garbage outside of the dumpster/compactor. There is a garbage dump site located at 320 Old Folkstone Road; according to their website, hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8am to 5:30pm. Please verify for yourself before making a special trip.
As a reminder, the grass mowing policy was paused during the COVID-19 travel restrictions, and are back in effect as of June 1, 2020. Lot inspections for cleanliness and safety hazard violations will resume July 1, 2020. If anyone needs assistance or clarification of requirements, please notify the office. Also, water mains should be shut off and any potentially flying objects should be secured when you leave the campground; please take all precautions when leaving as severe weather conditions may arise before your return.
Please note, the NCDOT requests that we not use the easement to connect to Island Drive until installation of the new driveway is complete. The NCDOT permit is pending signatures of the commercial property owners.
Have a safe and happy week. Enjoy the beach!
Rogers Bay Strong,
RBPOA Board of Directors
