Important Update from Your Summerwood Board of Directors and Crest Management Team:
 
As you may be aware, Hurricane Laura is expected to make landfall Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.  This hurricane is predicted to bring 6- 8 inches of rain with high winds.
 
Many of our contractors are working diligently in the community towards hurricane preparedness.  In preparation for this hurricane, we ask that you look at storm drains near your home and ensure they are free of debris, and take measures to secure trash cans and other large/light objects indoors.  If these items are blown away during the storm, they have the potential to block storm drains, so please ensure that the storm drains in front of your homes remain clear.  In addition, please make note of the Hurricane Preparedness resources provided below:

Message from the Summerwood Community Association Board of Directors:
 
As elected members of the Summerwood Association Board of Directors, we take our responsibility of leading the community seriously, especially during these times of making decisions regarding COVID-19. As we continue to closely monitor developments concerning the pandemic, we are charged with determining what is in the best interest of our community and to take precautionary measures for the safety of homeowners. After leveraging the guidelines from the CDC, federal, state and county governments along with our legal representatives and insurance carrier, the following Summerwood Community Association specific guidelines are being shared and will be enforced. Guidelines are fluid and evolving as the pandemic continues; therefore, it is foreseeable that these guidelines may change based on updated guidance from the aforementioned authorities. As of the date of this communication, the decision of the Board of Directors is:
 
  • Summerwood pools (Central and East) are to reopen contingent upon the availability of our pool contractor to staff the pool(s) with lifeguards. There will be no swim at your own risk and pool hours will be dependent on lifeguard readiness and availability. 
  • A signed COVID-19 liability waiver will be required for any homeowner who desires to make use of the pool. A waiver is required for each swimmer in the family.
  • Upon reopening, swimming at the pool will be available to homeowners only. Guests cannot be accommodated due to decreased capacity and the inability to secure waivers from guests.
  • The county and city have assigned the responsibility of pool occupancy limits to pool contractors. As of the date of this communication, occupancy maximums will be limited to 50% of capacity.
  • COVID-19 signage is being added to the pool area and homeowners are expected to read and comply with the guidelines provided from the government.
  • Social distancing and occupancy maximums will be enforced by the pool contractors. A gate attendant will manage access to the pool area.
  • Homeowners should be prepared for the pool to be open in 90- minute increments on a first come, first served entrance with all occupants leaving the pool at the 90- minute mark in order to ready the area for the next group of homeowners in line. Homeowners should refrain from engaging the lifeguards in confrontations regarding this time schedule.
  • Homeowners entering the pool at any time within the 90- minute period will be expected to exit the pool at the end of that time block. It is beneficial to arrive at the beginning of the 90- minute time block.
  • We are unable to accommodate private pool parties due to the governmental and association guidelines and the availability of required lifeguards.
  • There will be no swim lessons allowed during this period.
  • There will be no available seating at or around the pool. Homeowners are free to bring a chair but must remove it at the end of the swim time block.
  • Please be aware that the homeowner is responsible for adhering to all stated guidelines. For the health and safety of the community, breaches of guidelines may result in denial of access to the pool.
 
We understand that some homeowners may not agree with our decisions. Any homeowner certainly has the right to object; however, the Board of Directors requests that you do so using the available process for inquiries, comments, and recommendations. It is the practice of the Board to review requests and provide responses through the proper channels. It is with the abundance of caution and very thorough consideration that the Board of Directors has come to the above conclusions. Decisions are based on currently available information and on the advice of our legal counsel, insurance carrier, and governmental guidelines.
 
We appreciate your patience and compliance as we work diligently to ensure that we can offer this amenity to as many homeowners as possible in the safest manner that we can.
