CP POOL RULES - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Since Pool Season is always a busy time, it's the appropriate time to remind all residents of the POOL RULES.

.

The pool is "self-policed" by all residents who use the pool so if you see someone breaking the rules please go over to them and let them know that they need to correct their action immediately. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, then make note of their arrival or departure time from the gate and then report it to Sentry Management (you will be kept anonymous). They can use the gate stamp to determine who entered or departed from the pool at all times. You can also report the behavior to a Board Member and they can have the security video reviewed to determine who the person was that was not following the rules. The bottom line is that we all want to keep our pool in great condition for all residents to enjoy and therefore we must all follow the same rules of behavior.

.

GREEN VEHICLE STICKERS

With the Pool Parking Lot in regular use, it is important that every vehicle owned by a resident have a Green Vehicle Sticker placed on the rear window. These stickers are provided free of charge by the HOA and are a Safety Measure to assist residents and the Covington Police recognize those vehicles that belong in our neighborhood.

If you do not have a Green Vehicle Sticker on each of your vehicles, please REPLY to this email providing your Name, Street Address, and the Number of Vehicles you have and they will be delivered to your mailbox. Or email to tp81854@yahoo.com.

If you would like a sticker for your golf cart too, please make that request as this is a great idea since many residents drive their golf carts to the pool.

OVERNIGHT VISITORS & CAMPERS/RVs PARKED IN THE STREET or AT POOL PARKING LOT - VISITOR PARKING PASS REQUIRED - NO EXCEPTIONS

If you will be having overnight quests park on the street or your Camper/RV parked in front of your home (or at the Pool Parking Lot) at any time during the year in preparation for a trip or returning from a trip, you MUST place a VISITOR PARKING PASS on the dashboard so that the Covington Police know that it belongs to you and will be moving shortly. Please indicate on the Visitor Pass the date you will be moving the RV. This is to be followed every time.

Leaving unmarked cars parked in the Pool Parking Lot during the day or overnight is not allowed. If vehicles do not have a Green Vehicle Sticker on them then they MUST have a Visitor Parking Pass on them to keep from being towed.

.

If you need a Visitor Parking Pass Template, please email tp81854@yahoo.com and one will be emailed back to you.
