Message From CSA President
After having gone through a long process involving state agencies and attorneys, the CSA Board would like to ask our residents to bring items of concern to the Board rather than reporting them to various state agencies. The most recent incident cost CSA, and you, more than $4000 to investigate various state statutes and the ways in which they applied to Bouchelle Island. If the person filing the complaint had brought that matter directly to the Board rather than taking an unwarranted approach by going directly to the state, we could have answered the question without incurring the legal expenses and the loss of time needed to address the issue.
The CSA Board strives to maintain transparency in its dealing with all Owners and we ask that, in return, Owners look internally as the first step in resolving disputes.. Having residents taking action that forces the Board to seek legal advice and to incur legal expenses is certainly not in the best interest of Bouchelle Island. If you have a problem, there are ways to have that problem addressed without bringing outside agencies into the mix. All Board members are volunteers, giving freely of their time to help keep Bouchelle Island a desirable place to live.
Part of living in any condominium community is the application of sound reasoning to problem solving. All we ask of our residents is that before you take an action that will result in CSA incurring legal expenses to handle a problem that could have been easily resolved by open discussion, you give the Board an opportunity to address your concerns. We don’t want Bouchelle Island to get a reputation for becoming a litigious community nor do we want to spend your dollars unnecessarily.

New Hours for Fitness Center
The Fitness Center has added new equipment this past year and in order to safeguard it, new hours have been established. A new timed lock has been installed that allows owners and guests to use the facility between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. and still requires a key. All users are asked to take good care of the equipment and report any problems to the CSA office.
