Above Ground Pools and Seasonal Pools
Now that summer is here, many may be thinking about a cool dip in the swimming pool. Please be aware that according to the covenants, above ground pools are not allowed. After much debate, it has been construed that an “above ground pool” may be defined as a permanent structure, large in size, with rigid sidewalls. On the other hand, a seasonal pool is a small pool usually purchased from a local department store such as Walmart or K-Mart. Seasonal pools are temporary in nature, small in size, made of vinyl or hard plastic with sidewalls ranging from a foot to approximately three feet high. Seasonal pools have historically been acceptable in the community as long as they are not put up before Memorial Day and are taken down by Labor Day.
Some concerns and complaints have been raised
regarding the operation of motorized dirt
bikes, mini-bikes, and go-carts on our roadways.
Concerns mostly center about the safety of
riders as well as those walking on the roads
when the bikes pass by. Riders have generally
lacked any protective gear. Bikes tend to
go past walkers at an excessive speed, especially
a concern for younger children and those
with strollers or ‘tot’ bikes. Riders need
to obey all stop signs. In addition to the
safety concerns, the noise that these bikes
make has been well noted though out the neighborhood.
Virgina code 46-2 regulates these devices. Go to the link below and search for "moped or scooter or motor-driven" to review specific code.
