The Value of Lake Gaston Association Membership

The Lake Gaston Association represents property owners in the five counties of NC & VA that surround the Lake. The dedication and work of the LGA result in maintaining and enhancing the quality of recreational and residential enjoyment on Lake Gaston, and thereby protecting the Lake’s property values as well.

Property owners in the Lake area benefit from the efforts of the LGA in many ways, primarily in the lake-related areas of public and governmental affairs, lake environment, water quality, weed control, public safety, and public communication. The LGA becomes involved in any lake-related issue of concern to Lake Gaston property owners. Members receive a quarterly newsletter, and updated information on lake issues through the LGA website which also includes web links of interest. Benefits of a more tangible nature include discounted internet service and a special, as-needed “weekend only” internet rate for vacation home owners. The cost savings of just this one benefit is greater than the LGA's low annual dues of $25 per household.

Among other things, the LGA also represents the lake property owners with the Division of Water Resources and various other agencies involved with water quality and the environment, fishing, safety, lake levels, etc. It has fought against inter-basin transfer of Lake Gaston’s water supply and continues its search for weed control funding.

Please join and support the efforts of this organization. The LGA welcomes you to monthly member meetings of the Board of Directors (there are five from each county) who volunteer their time and efforts on behalf of lake property owners. Bring your comments and suggestions…and they will be heard the first Wednesday of the month. Brochures, applications to join, and further information may be found at lake real estate agencies or the Lake Gaston Chamber of Commerce. You may also call LGA at (252) 586-6577 or visit this website again.

For a single, “unified” voice on lake issues to Federal, State and local government agencies, the LGA is your choice. Won't you please join and be counted among the voice of thousands that support the work of the LGA? Even better….if you have some spare time in your week, won’t you consider serving your community? We invite you to share your special talents by serving on one of the LGA committees.
