To All Community Members:
It was a particularly dry May which means that our forests and dune grass have become explosive tinder.
Oceana County is presently classified as a No Burn Area by the State of Michigan. We expect it to remain so classified for the next four to six weeks.
For all of us that means no beach fires or fireworks, and certainly no fires around our cottages. To follow Michigan’s No Burn advisories, go to www.michigan.gov/burnpermit and click on “Can I Burn Today”. Then click on Oceana County.
Please help protect us all by following the state’s advice.

We welcome you to join the North Central Beach Association!
Established in 1973, the NCBA was created by a group of neighbors with the goal of preserving the irreplaceable natural environment where we own property. We all enjoy the improvements to our lives in Pentwater that have been the result of our neighbors volunteering to pitch in through NCBA over the years. As we celebrate our 50th year, we look back with gratitude to all those who have generously donated their talents, energy, time and resources to our community.
We look forward as well, acknowledging our need to evolve as our community changes and grows, and as technology allows us to pool our talents, connect and work together in ways our founders could never have imagined.
We are all neighbors and friends -- some for generations -- and feel a sense of connection and community in Pentwater.
