Keeping Bear Valley residents
informed and involved.


Bear Valley Residents ,Inc.. (BVRI) was established under the Articles of Incorporation when the Bear Valley village  was initially developed.   Bear Valley Residents, Inc. is a non-profit organization formed for the benefit of Bear Valley property owners (and non-property owners) who wish to join. Annual dues are  now $125 for each fiscal year starting March 1 and ending the last day of February. You may of course pay more if you wish to make a larger contribution to supporting the work of BVRI, Inc.  The main responsibilities of BVRI, Inc. are the oversight of the CC&Rs and the use of Bear Lake, but read about other benefits below.

2018 BVRI Membership Form will be available on March 1, 2018

BVRI Annual Membership Dues

The BVRI annual membership dues are $125.

In November of 2016 the BVRI Board made the decision to increase the annual dues from $100 to $125. Dues had not changed for about 10 years. The reasons for this increase included: (1) the increased cost of insurance for the use of Bear Lake; (2) the increased number of requests for donations to worthwhile Bear Valley community organizations; and (3) the general increase in cost of picnic food, beach sand, summer restroom rentals, etc.  The annual dues  cover an entire household.

  • Joint Owners: Membership dues are based on property owned, not on number of owners associated with that property; all joint owners are considered members in good standing once dues are paid on a given property by one of the joint owners. For voting purposes there can be only one vote per lot.
  • Owners of more than one lot: Owners of more than one property who wish to pay membership dues for each property owned must fill out a separate membership for for each property. You will need to do this if you want a vote for each property you own.
