Traverse Bay RV Park Condominium Association
The Traverse Bay RV Park Condominium Association website is a one stop source for all the information/questions you may have as a new co-owner. Using your Google Chrome web browser, copy and paste https://tbrvownersassociation.com into your address bar. The password to access the site is: owners! (all lower case, with the exclamation point).
This site offers a multitude of services to the co-owners. Features include a convenient, user friendly, tool to view condominium documents, BOD meeting minutes, financial reports, a events calendar and gallery. You can electronically interact with the Board, Operations Manager and Social Director, submit changes to your personal information, complete fillable forms for lot improvements, rental and guests, sign up to attend or volunteer for social events and email the Board of Directors.
At this time, there is no Online Payment option in the site. High merchant processing service fees, as well as bank fees that must be covered by the HOA or directly by the co-owner were the determining factors in this decision.
