Interesting Facts about the Silver Lake Institute
We are a 5013C corporation initially Chartered by the New York Legislature in 1857 with a new amended and current charter issued in 2016.
We are governed by a Board of Trustees made up of 12 cottage owners that are elected annually by the cottage owners. Trustees are elected for a three year term.
We are a community of both year round and seasonal owners who enjoy the sunsets, the lake and our neighbors.
The Lakefront greenway is owned by the Institute--all waterfront spaces are leased for an annual fee and must be maintained by the lessee. Any changes or improvements to the leased space must be approved by the Board of Trustees.
As a chartered Institute we are expected to offer programs in art, music, culture, education and spirituality during the months of July and August. We would hope that you would join in the fun and come to the Friday concerts, Saturday evening Coffee Houses, Sunday worship services, children's July 3rd bike parade, lectures desserts on the dock, and all of the other events on our packed summer calendar.
Saturday Mornings during July and August there is a morning cafe at Stoody Hall where you can come to meet with neighbors over a cup of coffee and a delicious breakfast. It is a great place to make new friends.
You pay a Silver Lake Institute tax which: pays for the upkeep of our historic buildings and the big blue dock, maintains our private roads, pays for the groundskeeper who provides the snow plowing in the winter and the mowing in the summer. These funds also assist the programming budget and allow for other improvements as necessary.
Garbage is picked up weekly and must have a sticker on each bag. Stickers may be purchased at the Institute office. Arrangements can be made to dispose of large items by contacting the Groundskeeper.
Alcoholic beverages are not permitted on any of the private grounds owned by the Institute including the waterfront, greenway, roads, buildings and parks. It is permitted on your private property and within your own buildings.
All property sales are subject to approval by the Board of Trustees. If you have other questions that your real estate agent can't answer, feel free to contact the Silver Lake Institute@frontier.com. We look forward to your becoming a part of this special community and look forward to meeting you and yours.
