Community Update on the Fallen Leaf Store and Marina – October 17, 2022

The Fallen Leaf CSD was notified by the FLL Store/Marina concessionaire this summer that they would not continue as the concessionaire after the end of the 2022 season. The CSD has embarked on a process to find a replacement operator. The two management alternatives identified to date are to 1.) Enter into a third party contract with a concessionaire and 2.) Operation of the FLL Store/Marina by the CSD which would entail hiring managers and employees.

Further outreach efforts in regional publications and with groups and publications that cater to managers and concessionaires who operate facilities with similar characteristics to the Fallen Leaf Store and Marina have resulted in statements of interest from both concessionaires and managers. If any members of the Fallen Leaf community have knowledge of any concessionaires or managers who may have an interest in being considered, they should have them contact Gary Gerren, the CSD General Manager, at

The CSD has appointed an advisory committee whose members are Bruce Hart, Mike Casey and Danny Kramer. This committee is seeking written input from the community regarding their thoughts on nearly any aspect of the store/marina operator selection process or the actual operation of the store and marina. Community input to the advisory committee may be emailed to The committee will give due consideration to the community’s comments as they develop their advisory recommendations to the CSD Board and General Manager.

The CSD has expressed a strong preference for making a decision at their regularly scheduled meeting on Saturday, December 3, 2022 so timely receipt of comments from the community is requested.
