and SSHA Membership
What is the SSHA?
The Sausalito Shores Homeowners Association was formed in 1983 for the purpose of maintaining and enhancing the Sausalito Shores neighborhood (and property values) through reasonable oversight and representation by a group of volunteer board members. Input from all members is vital to the success of the SSHA, and members have the opportunity to offer input at monthly meetings, or directly to board members.
Monthly board meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month (except July); the Annual Member Meeting is held the first Sunday after MLK Day in January where the annual budget is presented and voted on.
How much are SSHA member dues?
Annual dues are $125, and are due January 1st each year (dues are accepted at the Annual Member Meeting too). We now offer the convenience of online PayPal payments for annual dues and Optional Amenity fees. New homeowners might be eligible for pro-rated first-year dues -- see the Pay Dues page for more details.
Membership in the SSHA has many benefits:
You'll Know More
You'll feel more informed about what's happening in your neighborhood, and not be surprised by changes and improvements that might be planned.
You'll Feel Connected
Studies have shown that we are happier when we feel a connection to people and our neighborhood. As a member, you'll feel more connected to your neighborhood and neighbors, and they'll feel more connected to YOU. Those are important psychological benefits for an overall sense of well-being.
Your Opinion Counts
SSHA Members have a say in the important decisions that affect our neighborhood.
Access to Amenities
Members are provided coded gate access to some great amenities: the SSHA dock on Lake Howell for fishing, kayaking or relaxing, plus the children's playground, tennis courts, and basketball court. And you can bring your dog to the dog run behind the Storage Lot for some off-leash exercise!
Members can add Optional Amenities, such as the Boat Club (access to the boat ramp and secure, off-street parking while you're on the water), or the Storage Lot (long-term storage for your boat, RV, or other vehicle in a secured, fenced lot) – add either or both for an additional annual fee.
SSHA members receive a discount on Clubhouse rentals. The Clubhouse is a great place to have a party, business meeting, or even a family reunion.
Pride of Place
SSHA dues help to maintain the Clubhouse, the dock and boat ramp, and surrounding property and amenties. Dues also help pay for landscaping and beautification of common areas, helping to keep Sausalito Shores an appealing place to live.
Members are invited to all SSHA events, including holiday parties, and more! The SSHA is an active organization with several annual get-togethers, and we hope to increase the number of events for members and their kids.
Share Your Expertise and Interests
There are opportunities for volunteers to help with events or projects. It could be simply planting flowers at the round-abouts, or helping to decorate or cleam up after an event, or helping coordinate games and activities for kids at a holiday party. You might consider serving as a board member and be involved in the important decisions and long-term planning for Sausalito Shores.
