  2. OWNERSHIP REQUIREMENTS: Slips shall be offered and assigned to residents for boats owned and registered to residents. Boats partially owned by non- residents will not be eligible for slips. This provision will apply to slips offered after April 1, 1996.
  3. BOAT SLIP SEASON: The boat slip season is from May 1st to Sept 30th. Utilization of the slip at other times is at the users own risk. The OFCA does install an ice eater during the winter season to protect the pier. Operation of this requires all craft to be out of the water.
  4. FEES: A resident who has been offered the use of a boat slip must pay the OFCA the annual boat slip fee on or before May 15th of each year. After June 1st the slip will be made available to the next person on the waiting list. If a resident is notified that he may assume the use of a boat slip after May 1st, the resident must pay to the OFCA, within fourteen days, a prorated fee for the remainder of that season.
  5. USE REQUIREMENTS: A resident must utilize their slip, by having their boat in the water, a minimum of 90 calendar days during the boat slip season in order to retain rights to the slip. Special circumstances for a one-year period can be petitioned to the waterfront director for consideration.
  6. BOAT REQUIREMENTS: A resident's boat must be operational, registered by the DNR appropriately, and must weigh at least 800 pounds to qualify for a slip.
  7. WAITING LIST: The Waterfront Director will maintain a chronological waiting list for slips. Residents who wish to be added to the slip waiting list should make a written request to the Waterfront Director.
  8. SUBLEASING: Subleasing a slip by the resident to which the slip is assigned is prohibited.
  9. WATERFRONT DIRECTOR TEMPORARY SLIP REASSIGNMENT: Any resident on the waiting list that is notified of slip availability may petition to the Waterfront Director for a first year grace period. If the Waterfront Director approves the petition, the petitioner must pay the annual boat slip fee for that first year. The Waterfront Director may then assign that slip to the next person on the waiting list for that season. The temporary user must also pay the applicable annual fees. Any slip holder who has occupied a slip for a minimum of one entire season, and who will be unable to utilize the slip for a single season, may petition the Waterfront Director to hold the slip for that resident for the season. If the Waterfront Director approves the petition, the petitioner must pay the annual boat slip fee for that season. The Waterfront Director may then assign that slip to the next person on the waiting list for that season. The temporary user must also pay the applicable annual fees.
  10. WATERFRONT PARKING: Car and trailer parking must be kept to designated areas only. The drive and turnaround must be kept clear for access to and from the boat ramp by a vehicle pulling a trailer. Access to and from the canoe racks must also be maintained. Oakleigh Forest residents and guests may not park in the top most portion of the waterfront area that is maintained by Robinson Landing Ridge. Boat trailers may be temporarily parked in the woods while boats are either in use or tied up at the Oakleigh Forest Pier or slips. Effort must be made to arrange parked trailers in a fashion to maximize parking. No boats on trailers are permitted to be stored at the waterfront or in the woods for more than a 48 hour period. Notification of parking anything at the waterfront for more than 48 hours must be made to the waterfront director. Failure to do so can result in the boat, trailer or vehicle being towed at owner's expense.
