2020 Pool Season Update

As we approach the 2020 pool season, the Master Board of Directors is providing this update on the condition of the pool and the procedures for opening the pool this year.

Over the winter months, important pool repairs and updates were completed and new furniture purchased.

  1. New skimmer baskets, hand rails, valve replacements, caulking of the pool expansion joints and stencil painting have been or are being completed before the pool opening. Pool tiles are also being repaired/ replaced where needed.

  2. New bulletin boards have been installed and a new pool reception desk will be inside the pool area for signing in. Ceiling fans have been installed in the pavilions as well.

  3. Forty new arm chairs, four new 48” fiberglass tables and four new 9’ pool umbrellas have been purchased. In addition, fifty lounge chairs and sixty-three arm chairs have been renewed and re-strapped.

The Association and American Pool, who provides our lifeguards and maintains the pool, are under restrictions pursuant to the Governor’s Stay at Home Order and the CDC Guidelines regarding Social Distancing that may result in the pool not opening by Memorial Day Weekend.

Accordingly, the Board authorized Management to implemented the following action plan for the 2020 Pool Season. The action plan reflects the unknown nature of the restrictions currently in place by providing information for obtaining pool passes, updating pool passes and pool opening procedures under differing scenarios.

  1. If the Stay at Home Order is lifted before May 15th, management will be back on site and residents will have until June 5th to update or get new passes.

  2. If the Stay at Home Order is lifted after May 15th and the pool opens on May 23rd, residents will have until June 12th to update or get new passes.

  3. If the Stay at Home Order is not lifted by May 23rd, residents will have 15 days from the eventual lifting of the Stay at Home Order and the announced pool opening date to update or obtain new passes. For example, if the pool doesn’t open until June 20, all residents will have 15 days from June 20th to update passes or obtain new ones if required.

  4. Residents will use PROOF OF RESIDENCY to access the pool without a valid pool pass. (Driver’s license, utility bill, valid rental lease, etc. with name and address. Junk mail will not be accepted)

  5. New pool passes can be obtained at the Clubhouse from the Rec Managers in the evening between 5pm and 10pm.

  6. Rental units must provide a copy of a valid lease to update passes or obtain new passes.

  7. Updating last year’s pool pass with a current year sticker can be done during normal business hours or you can come in the evening to get your sticker from any of the Managers.

  8. Proof of address is required to obtain a new pool pass and/or update last year’s pool pass. (Driver’s license, utility bill, valid rental lease, etc. with name and address).

  9. Residents more than 90 days delinquent on assessment fees will not be permitted to obtain a new pool pass and/or update last year’s pool pass. Please contact the management office to discuss the delinquency.

  10. All residents/tenants will be expected to update passes or obtain new passes within the grace periods based on the date the pool opens.

  11. Guest fees will be collected by the lifeguards when you sign in with a guest. Please see the rules and regulations regarding guest fees and signing in.

  12. Events at the pool are tentative pending the pool opening date. Please understand these dates may change.

  13. Hours of Operation During the Summer:

  14. Sunday through Thursday: 10 am to 8 pm

  15. Friday: Noon to 10 pm

  16. Saturday: 10 am to 10 pm


All pool furniture (except new and re-strapped) and the pool decking (concrete) will be power washed prior to pool opening. Additionally, the Clubhouse and Pool Bathrooms will receive a deep cleaning prior to the opening of the facility and will be frequently cleaned, disinfected and sanitized throughout the pool season.

The Board wishes to thank everyone in advance for your ongoing cooperation and support during these uncertain and trying times. We are all in this together.
