Pool hours are subject to change in the discretion of the Board of Directors at any time and without prior notice. The District’s pool manager may close the pools during inclement weather at the discretion of the lifeguards on duty. Conditions warranting closure may include, but are not limited to, lightning, thunder, extreme wind, rain, threatening clouds, tornado warning, and temperatures dropping below 55 degrees. The pools will reopen if and when the lifeguards on duty deem it safe to return to the water.

B.) Pool Access. The gates to the pool areas are to be locked at all times. A key fob system is in place and it opens the gate when swiped. The key fobs cannot be duplicated; there is a $25.00 replacement charge for lost or stolen key fobs. The key fob will also open the restrooms. Contact the District Manager for key fobs.

Residents. Up to two (2) key fobs are issued to each residence. Children and guests may not be admitted to the pools without a key fob. Guests must be accompanied by a Heritage Hills resident. Residents may be asked to show a photo ID to verify they are residents and may be asked to sign in with the lifeguards upon entering the pool facilities.

C.) Pool Parties/Gatherings. The swimming pools are for the use and pleasure of Heritage Hills residents and members, and they may not be reserved for exclusive use. Pool parties may be allowed on a case-by-case basis, and subject to all applicable public health orders, regulations, and directives currently in effect, where the number of guests is equal to or less than 25 people. Pool parties of less than ten (10) people do not require approval from the District.

The District is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

L.) COVID-19 Regulations. Due to the exigent circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the District’s desire to serve the public, the District Board of Directors delegates authority to the District President to supplement these Swimming Pool Rules and Regulations as necessary to conform with all applicable binding public health orders as now in effect or as later enacted (“COVID-19 Supplement”). Any COVID-19 Supplement shall be immediately effective as a part of these Swimming Pool Rules and Regulations and will be posted on the District’s website and at the Pools.

M.) Enforcement. Failure to follow the Swimming Pool Rules and Regulations will subject the individual to immediate expulsion from the pools. In addition to other District remedies, if an individual has continued violations of the Swimming Pool Rules and Regulations, his or her rights to continued use of the pools may be forfeited, and he or she may no longer use the pools.

If a violator or owner of the home where the violator resides (the “Appellant”) wishes to dispute a determination made by the District pursuant to these Swimming Pool Rules and Regulations, the Appellant must file a written request for a hearing with the District within ten (10) days of the date of the disputed determination. The request for a hearing shall set forth with specificity the facts upon which the Appellant is relying and shall contain a brief statement of the Appellant’s reasons for the request. In the event a proper and timely request for a hearing is not made as provided herein, the right to a hearing shall be deemed forever waived.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

POOL CAMERAS. Vandalism has caused the community's pools to be closed for extended periods of time in prior years; the District has installed cameras at both pool facilities. These cameras will help deter vandalism as well as help identify any individual who vandalizes these facilities. The pools will be monitored when the pools are closed and recording will occur at both pool facilities.

AFTER-HOURS USE. Individuals in the pool areas after hours will be asked to leave. The Lone Tree Police Department will be dispatched if any crime is being committed or if individuals are present when the pools are closed.

CLUBHOUSE RENTALS. The Clubhouse may be reserved for social events in accordance with the Clubhouse Private Event Regulations and Rental Agreement. Any event where the pool is planned for use in conjunction with a Clubhouse rental must be coordinated with the District’s Manager in accordance therewith.
