Pool Passes for 2014

Greetings Westerley Neighbors!

Our pool season has arrived, and there is much to do to prepare for a fun and safe swimming season.  The Westerley Pool Committee (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) has been hard at work to make this an easy and efficient opening to the season.  It is expected that all residents familiarize themselves with the “Pool Rules” – these are found on this site under the Policies and Documents tab.

The pool is open from Memorial Day Weekend (beginning May 24) to Labor Day Weekend.  Here are the timings:

  • On weekends, 10am to 8pm.  
  • On weekdays through the end of the school year, from 4pm to 8pm.
  • Once school is out, 12pm to 8pm every weekday. 

Our new initiative this season is to issue brand new pool passes to the community.  This new system will help to make things run more efficiently at the pool house.  All residents (including children) wishing to use the pool must stop by the pool house to be issued a new pool pass.  The pool pass issuing dates are listed below.  If you are unable to pick up your new pass during one of these dates, we will try to have more issuing dates throughout the season.  In order to receive your pass, you will need to bring with you a government-issued photo ID and proof of residency (this may be a driver’s license or passport with your Westerley address or a utility bill with your Westerley address).  We will be taking a photo for each pass, so please be sure to bring all family members with you!

Pool passes will be issued from 11AM to 1PM on:

  • Saturday, May 31 
  • Sunday, June 1
  • Saturday, June 14,
  • Sunday, June 15
  • Saturday, June 28
  • Sunday, June 29

For this week (through June 1st), we are allowing home owners to access the pool with the old passes.

Annual Meeting Tonight

The association annual meeting is tonight (Tuesday, January 14). It's at Dominion High School, room 407. Registration starts at 18:30; the meeting starts at 19:00.

Notarized proxies can be brought to the meeting. Alternatively:

  1. You can show up during the registration period (6:30–7:00pm) and sign a proxy form in front of Patti (our management rep). She's a notary and can notarize it. You don't have to stay for the meeting—you can be in and out a few minutes. We'll have copies of the proxy form available.
  2. You can show up during the registration period, and stay only until quorum is established, and leave after that. You won't get to cast any votes, but you will count for quorum.
  3. You can attend the meeting and cast your votes in person. No proxy form needed.

Voting is open to all members of the association (all owners) who are in good standing.

The December 18th board of directors meeting is canceled. It has not yet been rescheduled.

2014 Budget Meeting

The board will be holding a special meeting to discuss & approve the 2014 budget.

When: 7pm, Monday, Nov. 25
Where: Sterling Public Library (120 Enterprise Court)

There will be an open session at the start of the meeting, where any members in attendance will be given an opportunity to speak. The topic of meeting (including the open session) is limited to the budget.

November 2013 Board of Directors Meeting

The November meeting will be Wednesday, November 20, at Dominion High School. The meeting starts at 7pm. I believe the room number is 407, or 409.

The major thing to get done this month is the budget for 2014. Other topics include the 2014 pool contract, and likely some other things.

Crack sealing townhouse streets

Weather permitting, on Monday Potomac Paving will be in the townhouse areas sealing cracks in the streets.

The townhouse streets are private streets, owned and maintained by the HOA. The single-family streets are public streets, maintained by the state.
