"The BOARD or the President may authorize various Committees to assist in the day to day operation of the WPOA."

- Code of Regulations ARTICLE VII COMMITTEES, Section 1. Committees

Lake Waynoka Committees are created to help facilitate many things between the membership and the WPOA board of trustees. Creating and maintaining important lake documents/rules, enforcing the subdivision's building code, providing feedback from the membership, and meticulously projecting and planning the lakes future are just some of the responsibilities some committees hold. Many committees derive their responsibility and authority from the Code of Regulations.

The Building Committee is responsible for creating, maintaining, and enforcing the Subdivision's Building Code, which must be approved by the WPOA Board. The committee derives its authority from Article VII, Section 11 of the Code of Regulations.

Building Permits are to be properly executed, and along with the required fees, submitted to the WPOA Manager for approval. The manager then submits permits to the committee for approval or disapproval. Disallowed Building Permits may be appealed to the board by the member.

An Approved Building Permit must be obtained by the member before exterior construction can proceed. Interior remodeling of a member's domicile does not require a Building Permit.

It is strongly recommended that members read the Building Prerequisites, Building Code, and the Waynoka Restrictive Covenants prior to developing plans for construction. The Building Permit and other related documents are on our Documents Page and can also be obtained at the administration office.


This committee was created to support, advise, provide feedback from campers to the board, and proactively plan toward a fun, relaxing campground experience at the lake.

We have lots of great ideas and would love participation from those who camp at the lake, to make those plans a reality. If you would like to join the committee, please email us, or come to one of the meetings.

Campground committee meetings are held the first Saturday of every month at 10 am at the pavilion.
