6.5 – Frequently Asked Questions
An interim report on the feasibility of incorporating Massanutten into a town was published on a website in August 2010. It was available for review and comment for roughly nine (9) months prior to the start of final reporting. During that review period, the author received numerous questions about town incorporation. Frequently asked questions (FAQs) were answered and placed on the website. Some FAQs have been incorporated into the text of this final report. Other FAQs applicable to this section of the report are noted as follows for completeness of reporting:
FAQ: If Massanutten incorporated into a town, what would happen to our Lifetime Memberships for ski, golf, and the recreation centers? That is a huge benefit of living here and owning those memberships. The annual fee for that allows us to participate in activities at a very affordable price for our family.
Answer: Town incorporation would not affect any Lifetime Memberships which are purchased from Great Eastern Resorts to use at the amenities which they own. These are private contracts which are not affected by the form of local government.
FAQ: If Massanutten incorporated into a town, what would happen to the MPOA discounts for skiing and golfing and the MPOA free access to Le Club during the summer months?
Answer: These agreements are between Great Eastern Resorts and MPOA. MPOA will continue to exist after an incorporation of Massanutten to fulfill MPOA’s obligations under Massanutten Village Subdivision Covenants. Therefore, nothing should change regarding MPOA discounts for and free access by MPOA members to Great Eastern Resorts’ amenities.
