ABOUT US

Pinewood Lake Association is a private community organization located on over 60 acres in Trumbull, Connecticut. The PLA is home to an historic clubhouse, and maintains several boat racks, two dams, a common access beach and several access parcels interspersed between houses that border the lake.

 

Our Founding

The Pinewood Lake Association was incorporated under the Statutes of the State of Connecticut on August 29, 1944 to promote and protect the joint property and interests of a community of residents known as Pinewood Lake.

 

The original By-Laws were approved and adopted at the Annual Meeting in 1944, and with the Charter served as the basis for government of the Association until 1947. The By-Laws have since been updated on June 28, 1947, June 3, 1954, July 21, 1955, December 4, 1973, and January 15, 2006.

​Our Purpose
  • To further and promote cooperation in all matters affecting the interest and protection of owners of land in the immediate neighborhood of Pinewood Lake.

  • To improve, repair and maintain land under and adjacent to the waters of Pinewood Lake.

  • To maintain and operate the clubhouse and rooms associated.

  • To provide and promote lectures, exhibitions, entertainments and other affairs of a social or instructive character

How We Function
  • The PLA operates and thrives entirely on volunteers who give their time and talents to ensure the association functions. 

  • Business activities are managed by a Board of Governors consisting of Owner Members elected from the various properties that are eligible for owner membership status within the Association. 

  • Operations are funded entirely through member dues. Each December at the Annual Membership Meeting, the budget is approved, along with the setting of annual dues and the approval of the number of Associate Members for the following year.
