Illegal Holding Tanks

Loo Cube Septic-Pic

 It has been brought to our attention that a self contained “septic tank system” know as the “Loo Cube” is being utilized by certain property owners within the Trails End community. Please be aware these tanks are deemed illegal  per the Accomack County Health Department. All violations associated with the use of unapproved holding tanks will be reported to  the local Health Department for remedy.

Force Cuts

Force cuts will began immediately after Memorial Day for all lots found to be violation of the lot cleaning policy established by the Board of Directors to include the following infractions:

*Grass exceeding 9 inches in height

* Other undesirable growth/weeds exceeding 18 inches in height

*Vines exceeding 4 inches

*Poison Ivy/Oak exceeding 12 inch runners

Please be aware this is the only notice you will receive. Those lots found to be in violation of the specified standards will be cut by the Association or chosen independent contractor, resulting in a fee of $75 per cut.

The Association strongly encourages every owner to make arrangements to maintain their lot within these standards. Realistically, we know that there will always be those who do not meet their responsibilities as lot owners. This program allows the Association to deal with the minority for the good of the majority. In addition to being unsightly, a neglected, overgrown lot harbor snakes, skunks and other vermin. It also provides breeding grounds for mosquitoes and other insects, reducing the effectiveness of the mosquito spraying program.

We thank you in advance for your attention to this important matter.

Owner Cards for New Gate Entry System

The office is requesting information from all property owners for the issuance of new owner cards for the gate system. Owner passes will be issued to all individuals listed on the deed. Additional passes will be made available for minor children, Associate and Auxiliary members.

If you have not already submitted your form to the office, please click on the link below to obtain a copy of the document. This information may be faxed to the office, 757-824-0262, sent via e-mail to info@trailsendassoc.com, brought into the office (please have your form filled out in advance) or mailed to CBTEA, P.O. Box 240, Horntown, VA 23395.

Form for New Gate Entry Passes

Owner passes will be issued to all deed members and to minor children (age 17 and under). The first pass obtained for these individuals will be free of charge. Non-owner passes to include Associate members (age 18 and over) and Auxiliary member cards will be issued for a fee of $5.00 each. If a pass is lost, the replacement fee for each card will be $10.00.

Property owners do not have to make an appointment to obtain new cards. We simply ask that you visit the office at your convenience during normal business hours. The office is open every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. The office will be open on Saturdays beginning April 25th from 8:00 am until noon going forward until after Labor Day.

Transponders are available for vehicles in addition to the new entry passes for a fee of $25.00. Please be aware you are not required to purchase a transponder. This is an optional item that would allow you to use the “fast lane” instead of having to swipe your card upon entry.

Old guest passes that do not have an expiration date will now be considered expired. You will be allowed the opportunity to exchange them on a one-to-one basis, not to exceed 20 passes to be credited to your account accordingly.

Please be aware the gate arm that is compatible with this new card swipe system will only allow one vehicle to pass through at a time.  The arm will automatically come down as each vehicle moves through.  If you do not wait for the vehicle to advance and allow the arm to come down, it will hit your vehicle.   Please proceed with caution and use patience!



Dumpsters arriving on May 20th – June 1st

2 Dumpsters will be placed in the field for clean up purposes on May 20th through June 1st.  No liquids or containers with liquid inside, no large metal objects, no fuel tanks and nothing larger than a microwave can be put in them.  You can put yard debris, tree limbs, etc.


Energy Saving & Solutions

The Board of Directors is asking for volunteers to research potential energy saving and alternative energy solutions for Trails End facilities and possibly extending to use by property owners on their properties.  Areas to investigate will include LED lighting, occupancy sensors, solar lighting, solar energy, wind power, point of use water heaters, and any other areas of interest.  This will be an on-going project to investigate cost, savings, and payback.  This group will be working with Rick Pearce and Sherry Sullivan to determine priorities and to get further information.
