Streets and Drainage Advisory Task Force

Lakeside Chautauqua suffers from significant deferred maintenance in the areas of adequate drainage, storm runoff, street and sidewalk deterioration and street/intersection safety.

Due to the overwhelming number of questions raised by Lakeside Property Owners Association members, a Streets and Drainage Advisory Task Force has been formed. This team is comprised of Lakeside staff, Lakeside Association Board of Directors, Lakeside Property Owners Association representatives, and community members with professional expertise in construction, engineering, law, finance and Lakeside’s needs.

Over the next six to eight months, Streets and Drainage Advisory Task Force members will partner with Lakeside Executive staff and the Board to provide recommendations regarding the project at the Association Board meeting in May 2023. Visit

Lakeside homeowners and Campground residents are encouraged to check this page for updates in the community. We value you as a homeowner and Campground resident and want to ensure you have consistent communication throughout the year.
