Re: Rules for Use of the Pool


With the upcoming opening of the Pool for the 2019 season
we are sending this reminder regarding expectations, requirements for use and
the rules for use of the pool. In accordance
with Lansdowne Village Greens Homeowners Association Policy Resolution No. 9; “Use
of Common Areas: Swimming Pool Rules”, all Members of the Association (or their
designated tenants) are entitled to use the swimming pool facility. Members who lease their unit must designate,
in writing, using a form authorized by the Association, those tenants living in
the unit who are entitled to use the community facilities, including the
swimming pool and community center. A
non-resident member who leases his unit is not entitled to use of these
community facilities.

Only those persons with a valid facilities pass shall be
entitled to use the swimming pool and other community facilities. Guests must be escorted by an eligible pool
user with a valid facilities pass who is sixteen years of age or older. Guests will not be admitted to the pool
without such escort. One guest pass with
ten (10) guest spots will be provided to each household. A maximum of four
guests are permitted at one time per household.


A.    The Association is represented by the managers
and lifeguards, who have been instructed in the rules of the pool. Any conflicts shall be addressed with the
pool manager, or assistant manager, who will bring the issue to the Association
if it cannot be satisfactorily resolved.

B.   Certified
lifeguards will be on duty at all times that the pool is open. They have the authority to use their
discretion to enforce the rules to maintain a safe and healthy
environment. The manager is in charge of
the pool and is there for the protection of persons using the pool. The manager has the authority to ask anyone
to leave the pool area for infractions of the rules or when safety is threatened. The manager may prohibit entry to anyone for
up to one week for each violation without prior authorization from the Board of

C.   Safety
is of primary concern to the Association and its Members. All persons using the pool do so at their own
risk and agree to abide by the rules for use of the facility. The Association assumes no responsibility for
any accident or injury in connection with such use or for any loss or damage to
personal property. Residents (Members
and tenants) are responsible for the actions of their children and guests.

bathers shall take a shower bath using soap and warm water and thoroughly
rinsing off before entering the pool. (Parents are encouraged to instruct their children).

managers and/or pool lifeguards to place the Association’s lap lane marker in
the pool at designated times and/or at the discretion (the latter occurring
