In 1994, a small group of property owners in Carolina Dunes met and discussed the value and importance of organizing a homeowner association for the community. A year later, in 1995, the Carolina Dunes Association, Inc (now commonly referred to as CDA, Inc) was officially formed and incorporated as a non-profit North Carolina corporation. Our Articles of Incorporation are in the Documents section below.
Since 1995, CDA, Inc has been continuously serving the entire Carolina Dunes community and has taken over responsibility for the three ocean access walkways, the sound access path & bench, the community lot on Sprigtale (primarily used as a parking area by the life guards who service the Carolina Dunes beach each summer) and the community entrance signs on NC 12. CDA, Inc also monitors issues and problems impacting the community and communicates information regarding them to property owners. CDA, Inc receives no tax revenue and relies completely on the small annual dues requested from each property owner. Therefore, all property owners are strongly encouraged to pay their dues each year.
Once a year CDA, Inc conducts an annual meeting for all property owners. This meeting is usually conducted the weekend before Easter. CDA, Inc Board members are nominated and elected at the annual meeting. All Board members and officers serve as unpaid volunteers and work on behalf of the entire Caroline Dunes community. Their service should be recognized.
The CDA, Inc Board functions very efficiently and often in an informal manner. However, Board meeting minutes are taken, and they can be viewed on this website under 'News' and Newsletters'.
The overall rules of governance for CDA, Inc are contained in the Association Bylaws and Board Resolutions.
An aerial photo was discovered that was taken around 1980 of the entire Carolina Dunes subdivision. It was taken from above the Sound and faces Easts. The street on the right hand side (South) of the picture is Widgeon. On the north is Old Squaw. Some of the original houses can be seen Pintal, Sprigtail, and Old Squaw on the north.
