Throughout the spring and early summer months we often get complaints of the large number of geese within our community. While the geese offer their own beauty to the property, they come with many unwanted side effects. Some of those being damage to our lawns, droppings, and hazards on our roads.
Over the years the goose population within Oceanside Cove has grown exponentially and every year the Board of Directors and Management have looked into cost effective measures to control the goose population. Canadian Geese are protected by the DEC and therefore require special procedures to try and control them.
Beginning on March 19, 2021 we will be working with an outside company to try a new method to control the goose population within the community. Their goal is to preventing nesting in the community by making the geese feel unwanted. This company will use dogs to scare the birds from the property at different times of the day and early evening. These dogs are well trained, working animals, and come each with an individual handler. This does not harm or kill the geese in any way.
Please do not approach or distract the dogs or the handlers while they are working!
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call the Management Office and we'll be happy to discuss with you further.

At this time the health club and clubhouses remain closed.
Please understand that the protocol and requirements for opening the clubhouse and/or health club are far different than the opening of the pools. While great effort and expense were required to open the outdoor pools, the opening of indoor facilities requires even greater expenditures to be safe and compliant with the current protocols
Aside from the labor and cleaning requirements, there are equipment upgrades for filtration and disinfecting of the air which must take place. Please know that we have been working towards an eventual re-opening. We have met with contractors to determine what exactly is necessary to add to our existing systems, and have placed orders for equipment. Unfortunately, much of the equipment is back-ordered due to the worldwide demand
Additionally, due to the situation with Covid-19 and the current spike in infection rates, the board is unwilling to subject our community, and staff, to unnecessary exposure at this time. It is our hope and expectation that the vaccines, and improved understanding of the virus by the medical professionals, will bring closure to the pandemic and allow us to resume a more normal lifestyle soon.
We are all yearning for the return to normalcy!
At the Board of Directors meeting held on December 9, 2020, the Board voted to approve the following amendment to the House Rules regarding gas lamps and heater.
"House Rule #28
No LESSEE shall store or use any wood, oil, gas, kerosene lamps, or any wood, oil, gas, kerosene heaters in their unit, or on any property owned by the LESSOR"
With snow season upon us we'd like to remind everyone of the complex policies on snow removal.
Oceanside Cove works to keep the roads within the community, open, clear and passable for the duration of all snow storms. Clearing of sidewalks, driveways and parking spaces begins after the snow storm has completed.
Crews begin after snowfall in multiple locations and work their way around the complex clearing sidewalks, driveways and parking spaces. In order for us to clear driveways and parking spaces, cars must be removed before they will be cleared. If crews come by your area doing cleanup, and your car has not been moved, they will skip you and continue working their way through the complex. Please understand we will not be able to return to clear your spot then until we've completed the complex. The complex is large and bouncing around doing a spot here or there is just not feasible.
Please remember these important items.
If you have a special situation or a problem during or after snow removal, Call Us! We are available to answer any questions and work on a resolution for your problem.
Registered users can now access many in person requests ONLINE!
Due to the Management Office remaining closed to outside visitors and shareholders, we have made many new and exciting updates to the Online Portal. Registered website users can access the following functions through their online portal.
Many shareholders are wondering why the health club has not opened yet. The department of health and NYS have put very strict guidelines on opening health clubs. Similar to how they put guidelines on opening the pool, they've put guidelines on gyms/health clubs. The guidelines set forth are significantly stricter than the pool guidelines that were required of us during the summer. The requirements include specific HEPA filtration being installed in our AC/Heating system. This by itself is holding things up as this equipment, like much of the COVID19 equipment is on a severe backorder.
Aside from just the equipment there are other hurdles we're working on as well. The requirements include contact tracing and the 6' spacing of the gym equipment. As you are aware our facility is very small and there are also hurdles in that as well. Similar to the pool the health club opening will be required us to hire staff members to be stationed at the building while the health club is open, signing people in and out of the building and asking them contact tracing questions. We appreciate all your patience and we're working through all these details as quickly as we can. Please check back for updates here. All shareholders will receive a notice as soon as we have an anticipated opening date.
Our priority is to get this open as soon as possible while ensuring all shareholders remain safe while using the facility!
