Lake in the Clouds Property Owners Association, Inc.
112 Lake in the Clouds Road
Canadensis, PA 18325
LITC has been in existence since 1964 when the Association was formed. The original owners of the property known as Lake in the Clouds (LITC) were Avalon Operating Corporation and Empire Clay Products, Inc. Char-Mart Inc. has been the Developer for the past thirty years and has deeded the lakes to the Association. The Association was formed as a non-profit corporation, and is owned and operated by members, persons who have acquired by deed the title to one or more lots in the development.
There are presently 423 properties in LITC. The association owns 16 additional lots, five of which are dedicated greenspace land. Deed restrictions "run with" each property , that is, they pass on with the property from owner to owner. The dues are based upon the type of property owned: Year 2019 dues for a house are $500.00, for a lot are $425.00
The Board of Directors is made up of seven volunteer, dues-paying members. It governs the operations of the Association within the framework of the By-Laws. The Board is elected for two-year terms by the general membership at the fall general membership meeting. An Office Administrator handles the day-to-day business of the Association. Office hours are Monday from 9am to 1pm, and Thursday from 1pm until 5pm..
You are encouraged to call or stop in during those hours to meet the administrator and provide the office with your name, mailing address, email and telephone number (for emergency purposes only). Or you may contact the administrator by mail. Voice mail is in attendance 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Your calls will be returned the next day the office is open. E-mails may be sent to

Did you know that much of what gets done at LITC is due to the volunteer work force?
We have three paid employees: Diane, our administrator; Ed, our property manager; and in the summer, Luis, our lifeguard. We use Panther Trucking and Excavating for our road work and snow plowing. Major projects are contracted out.
All the other work is done by volunteers. Members of the Board of Directors serve a two year term. They dedicate many hours to ensure the continuation of excellence our community enjoys.
There are committees concerned with the greenspace; social activities like the summer picnic and the monthly covered dishes; "road crew"` and occasional maintenance projects (snow fence, swim raft, picnic tables) ~ something for everyone! If you have a little spare time and would like to be more involved in our community, contact the office.
