BRING YOUR DRIVER'S
LICENSE OR DAVIS LAKE ID TO THE LAKE!
The lake within the Davis Lake Community Association
(DLCA) property boundaries is a beautiful focal point of our community.
However fishing in the lake is restricted to only the residents who
live within the DLCA boundaries. The DLCA boundary encompasses: Davis
Lake Residential, Woodcroft and The Legacy. Davis Ridge is not a part
of the Davis Lake Community Association. Residents are requested to
bring their drivers' license or Davis Lake ID to the lake when fishing
in case your address needs to be verified. You may NOT grant "visitor's
rights" to your friends or guests.
Some residents have expressed their concern about non-residents
of the DLCA fishing in the lake. The lake is stocked with fish and
maintained using homeowner's association dues, and therefore should
be used only by DLCA residents. Others are considered to be trespassing
on private property. Davis Lake Community Association property is
NOT "public" property. It is "private community property".
The Charlotte Police Department will be cooperating
with the DLCA residents to help enforce this policy. If you
see a person at the lake that you think is trespassing, you should
call 911 to report a possible non-resident fishing. You should also
tell the 911 operator that the officer can check with our clubhouse
manager for a list of streets in Davis Lake and those authorized to
fish in the lake.
Non-residents of DLCA found fishing in the lake will
be told of the policy and asked to leave and the officer will issue
a report with that persons name on it. The officer will then give
the club management a copy of the report to be place on file.. If
the same person is ever back fishing again, the officer will do 1
of 2 things. They will either arrest the person, or assist the DLCA
in getting a warrant for trespassing or a summons to appear in court.
We hope that we will not have to go to these extreme
measures. Signs have been posted beside the lake to inform non-residents.
