Welcome, new property owners!
Belleau Lake is completely surrounded by private property. The "common areas" consist of (but are not limited to) the lake, dam, roads, beaches, boat launch, recreation lands, etc.) and are all maintained by the Belleau Lake Property Owners Association (or BLPOA). The costs of maintaining these is only made possible through the collection dues from those living within the Association boundaries. Most residents (with a single lot and home on it) pay about $350 / year in dues. With the exception of a contribution to our milfoil program - the Town of Wakefield does not provide the BLPOA with assistance to defray the costs of maintaining these common areas.
When you purchase property within the BLPOA area; you must contact the treasurer so that she can update the the BLPOA's property owner record. The current treasurer is Mary Vinargo. You may contact her via email by clicking: firstname.lastname@example.org.
