The Moorings Association is a 369-dock condominium community.
Each condominium dock represents private ownership of part of the New Buffalo harbor. Each condominium dock is taxed as real estate located in the City of New Buffalo, Michigan. The owners of the 369 docks collectively are served by The Moorings Association, which owns all common facilities, including peninsulas and dock improvements. Common facilities also include an outdoor swimming pool, a whirlpool, two bathhouses, a fish cleaning station, and auto parking areas.
The Moorings Association is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the dock owners. The Annual Meeting of owners is scheduled on a Saturday morning during June of each year. The Moorings staff is managed by a professional manager, who is responsible to the Board of Directors.
Some dock owners use their docks for mooring their own power or sailboats. Other owners own their docks as investments, renting them for use by others on a seasonal basis. The Moorings has become a unique boating season neighborhood. There is no provision for transient or short-term rentals, and long-term relationships among neighbors are among the most valuable benefits of being part of this community.
