Pool Hours
by dodger on May 3rd, 2010

Picking up on the discussion about non-residents using the pool, after hours . . .I'm not a big fan of signs, but, maybe posting a sign that declares that the pool is available to residents only during certain times and to the public during certain times would help with the non-resident pool problem. I, too, witnessed some of the worst intrusions last year when non-residents brought a dog into the pool area and were listening to a loud baseball game on the radio. I asked if they lived here and they said 'no'. I also tried to talk with folks about using a rock to keep the gate open, and was told that the gate was broken, so a rock had to be used. I will add to the evidence that the pool is used by non-residents and that the way that these folks get in is by way of the gate, held open with a rock.

Agreed that a sign is needed to clearly spell out when the pool is open and to whom. Non-residents may not be aware that they are trespassing when they are on premises during resident only hours.

How about having a sign on the gate clearly indicating that the pool is closed for the non residents after the official hours? That would help avoiding any negotiations at the gate, and maybe discourage the less braves from trying?
By the same token, some courtesy rules could be reminded to everybody (like to keep the noise down after 9pm if possible).

When I was at the pool yesterday, there was a sign by the entrance that outlined the resident and non-resident hours.

sorry, I was not clear. What I meant was a sign addressing specifically trespassing after hours, using these exact words. But the question is how to enforce this restriction? Do we call somebody? A few "evictions" of the unruly swimmers would probably do the trick and set an example. As far as I remember from the last year, they were some teen agers from the surrounding areas. Without an effective way to demonstrate that we really care, I am afraid that we will have those night visitors till an accident happens.

I swam most nights. The usual non members were Hispanic families with limited english skills. It was hard to say no to the mom and 5 kids at the gate, wanting to swim, especially with limited spanish skills myself. It is a problem that will only be fixed by not putting a rock in the gate and kindly saying no when they ask to be let in. It does not feel very good to do. I doubt a sign will make much of a difference.

Seems like a problem the POA should handle - they are paid to manage this facility. Should be little problem to have our APD security follks stop by from time to time....let's tell Jennifer
