All Southfield and Davenport Point residents have deeded rights to the water and what is known as the Plaza, which hosts 21 dock slips for residents. The two associations publish a set of Plaza and Dock facility rules as well as an allocation and assignment procedure for the use of the boat slips. The rules focus on ensuring a safe, clean environment for members and their guests. Boat slip users pay a bond, refundable when they leave the area. The open slip is then assigned to the next person on the waiting list.
