Bella Vista Property Owners Association (POA)
The Bella Vista Lakes Committee reminds residents that leaves should not be raked, blown, or otherwise dumped into the lakes.
Disposing of leaves into the lakes contributes to the silting of the lakes. Raking or blowing leaves into the lakes allows debris to float to other homeowner docks, swimming areas or lake fronts potentially spoiling their area. It also creates a nuisance by adding debris to the lake and clogging park creeks, boat ramps and drains.
