Happy New Year! 2016 promises to be an exciting year for StillWaters. Property values have increased over the past couple of years, the number of properties sold have steadily increased to over 150 in 2015, and there are two new potential developments on the drawing board that may start construction in the coming year. StillWaters is a great investment and is the economic engine for the eastern side of Lake Martin, what a great place to live.
The annual StillWaters Residential Association dues invoices were mailed the last week in December. Please contact the SWRA office at 256-825-2990 if you have not received your 2016 annual dues invoice. There was no increase in the 2016 annual dues.
SWRA has continued to reduce costs and increase non dues income over the past few years to help improve all of StillWaters. All amenities in StillWaters have received some type of upgrade over the past five years. In 2016 we continue to work toward improving our community to help our investment grow.
The SWRA Board of Directors Nominating committee is working on a list of candidates for the 2016 Board of Directors election.

A petition can be obtained at the SWRA office and must be returned no later than January 20, 2016. All candidates running by petition will be placed on the ballot along with the candidates selected by the nominating committee.
The Tallapoosa County Historical Society is still seeking homes in StillWaters to be included in the Spring Tour of Homes. The home can be a single family house, a condominium, or a villa. The Tour of Homes will be held on Saturday, April 16th. This is an excellent opportunity for property owners to showcase their homes and for Realtors to get free advertising for homes listed For Sale. Contact Marsha Hartness at 256-675-0221 or email at
to have your property included on the tour.
There are a few remaining office suites available at the StillWaters Welcome Centre located at the main entrance. Monthly rental rates range from $350-$400 per month with utilities included. There is also a part-time receptionist available. The Welcome Centre is a great location for an office of a company that is doing business in StillWaters.
