We have the unfortunate task of letting you know that we had to close the pool for several days again to address the vandalism and damages done by several individuals this past weekend.
Why does this continue to be a problem in our community?
What is most concerning is this has happened several times over the summer, but this time has the most extensive damage. We have had homeowners catch younger residents (mostly unaccompanied – minors), causing the most chaos and damage at the pool this summer. Please, make time to review MHOA Pool Rules with your kids.
If you bring friends or non-homeowners to the MHOA pool, you are responsible for their actions and cleanup.
As a 97-homeowner HOA, our collective responsibility is to one another. Each of us pays when vandalism occurs. This time, the HOA will spend over $800 to clean the pool and prepare the pool for use again.
As we wind down this summer, we implore everyone in Meadowridge to watch for unruly activity, especially at or near the pool. If you witness destructive behavior, take photos, and report the incident to the police by filing a report online or at the MHOA website and emailing Lara at Equus Management (don’t forget to include your images).
We also ask homeowners to work with their kids to help them understand their responsibility in a shared space neighborhood.
While disruptive and vandalizing behavior is the primary concern in this email, we also ask that anyone using the pool clean up after themselves both in the pool area and restrooms. Unfortunately, we have had to pay for several cleanups this summer because pool goers failed to remove their trash and, instead, leave a trail of grossness for others to navigate and remove. We can do better as a community, and we should.
As a board, we are looking at new ways to protect the pool and increase security. The Board encourages folks to honor our shared space and respect one another as homeowners rather than always having to mitigate problems and constantly handle endless, unnecessary repairs. We appreciate your cooperation and ask each of you to participate in what is our community’s shared responsibility.
We know YOU are our best asset!
The MHOA Board
