As a new resident of Long Bay, getting settled can be confusing.  We hope that the information below will help to get you acclimated so you can start to enjoy being a member of the Long Bay community more quickly.  Your first step should be to call the Long Bay property manager, Evergreen Management at 603-527-8147 to get started.

Long Bay Information

Welcome New Long Bay Neighbors

Entry Gate - South Down / Long Bay

The gate at the entry to South Down & Long Bay requires an RFID tag or a code to be entered into the touchpad at the guard shack.  For your code (free) and/or RFID tag ($5), contact Evergreen Management (603-527-8147).

 

Key for Long Bay Pool & Clubhouse

The gate to the pool & the doors to the clubhouse are locked, so you'll need a key to enter. Keys are available at $35 each through Evergreen Management at 1921 Parade Rd., Laconia.

Long Bay / South Down Directory

There is a combined Long Bay & South Down directory (residents of both communities are mixed alphabetically) that is updated monthly on the Evergreen Management TownSq website (a homeowner login is required - call Evergreen Management at 603-527-8147 to set up your login). On the Evergreen Management homeowners site, click on the Documents tab & scroll to the bottom to the Directory link.

There is also a paper version of the directory that is updated each summer.  Copies are available at the Evergreen Management office (1921 Parade Rd., Laconia).  They are also distributed to attendees at the Long Bay Annual Meeting in August.

 

Long Bay Dues Billing

Currently, Long Bay dues are $1,550 per year, which pays for our maintenance & amenities (beaches, pool, tennis courts, snow plowing, landscaping, etc.).  Dues are billed semi-annually (mailed in early December & early June, and due February 1 & August 1) at $775 for each 6 month period.  Village dues are billed separately (see the Villages tab for individual village dues).

 

Long Bay Annual Meeting

An annual meeting of Long Bay residents is held annually, usually in August.  The Long Bay Board presents the previous year's financial statements & the coming year's budget.  Other issues of importance to the community are discussed & may be voted on at this annual meeting.

 

Long Bay Town Hall Meeting

About 6 weeks before the Long Bay Annual Meeting, the Board hosts a Town Hall Meeting as a means for residents to preview the new budget proposal, upcoming projects, and other issues & to ask questions, in advance of the Annual Meeting.

 

Village Annual Meetings

Each village also holds their own annual meeting of their village residents.

 

Fire Alarm System

Some properties in Long Bay have a fire alarm system installed. Many systems are linked to a dispatch service & to the Laconia Fire Dept. For these systems, if an alarm is triggered, you will receive a call from the dispatch service asking for your alarm code.  Be sure to get your alarm code from your seller, builder, or alarm company.

Trash Pickup

Because Long Bay is a private gated community, the city of Laconia does not pickup our trash.  Residents have several options:

 

- South Down/Long Bay Preferred Pricing Trash Services

South Down and Long Bay have negotiated jointly to bring curbside trash/recycling pickup to both communities.  They have selected two vendors:

- At Your ServiceNH for trash/recycling pickup;

- Casella Waste Systems for dumpster pickup (for certain South Down villages).

- Laconia Recycling Center & Transfer Station

The Laconia Transfer Station on Meredith Center Rd. accepts household waste & recycling.  You need an annual permit ($20) for your vehicle & a $5 yellow ticket for each load up to 100 pounds.
