Lake Stonycreek Lot Owners Association

The Lake Stonycreek Lot Owners Association (LSLOA) is an independent social club, not operating under the auspices of the Stonycreek Valley Development Corporation (SVDC).  For clarification, the role of the Lake Stonycreek Lot Owners Association should not be confused with the governance role of a “homeowners association” (HOA) which lot owners may be familiar with in other communities. At Lake Stonycreek, the administrative governance role is held by the SVDC.
