The HOA encourages its residents to maintain their properties by removing any weeds and dead trees. Shorewood also has a 15 mile per hour speed limit which includes all motorized vehicles. The HOA also owns a dozen lots inside of Shorewood which are protected land called parks. This is a private Open Space for the owners within Shorewood.
 

Wells and Water

Serving 32 homes in Shorewood are two wells. This main well is located in one of the parks in Shorewood. The state does not allow any more users on the well so all other residents must provide their own water system. The most common solution to this issue is simply drilling a well for your home. Those who use the taps are responsible for the upkeep and condition of their systems. There is also a $500.00 fee for tap users.
