July 2023 Community Newsletter
We’ve noticed that homeowners or their landscapers are mowing, and trimming lawns and then blowing the excess in the streets. This is prohibited!! Lawn clippings should be blown back into the same yard or swept up. Not only does this look terrible, but they end up in gutters and eventually our storm drains, or even water ways since we have lots of open canals and rivers nearby. These clippings can block things up and cause damage in many ways for us down the road. Please be responsible in cleaning up.
If you have a small motorized scooter, bike, or car that children are driving please make sure they know not to jump out into the street from between cars, and that these are not allowed in the common areas where they are tearing up the grass. Please also do not park golf carts in the grass or on sidewalks. There’s been lots of issues shared about golf carts and the reckless driving. Please report issues to the police at call 208-377-6790.
We’ve had some great events in the community, like food truck visits, concerts, and the 4th of July parade. These events take time and energy, and really appreciate all the volunteers that make them happen. Thank you to all those that helped and participated. We look forward to more fun times.

Please remember to keep your pet(s) LEASHED when not on your property, as well as picked up after. There is a Leash Law for dogs, but cats are also a problem. Help keep our common areas clean by not leaving behind pet waste.
Don’t break the RULES!!! They are in place for everyone’s enjoyment and safety. Parents, you are in charge of your children, so most of these are broken by you… Please make sure you and your family or guests are adhering to the below:
- Use appropriate plastic swim pants for those still potty training. Basic swim diapers are not enough (they leak) and this causes pool shutdowns. You are on camera, and the key system monitors when you go to the pool. You will be charged for cleanup costs if caught.
- No oversized inflatables! Drowning is silent and these take up a lot of room, but also can cause a terrible accident.
- The pool closes at 10pm. After 10pm you are trespassing, and we will report to the police and turn of cards.
- Do not let people in without a key!!!! Letting outside people in will fill the pools faster, wear them down, and then there’s no way to hold anyone responsible for any damage or issues they cause. We’ve seen lots of kids push the button to let people in as well. Please make sure they know not to do this. If you bring in guests, please make sure you are being courteous to other owners by not completely over-taking the pool.
- The pool is not your babysitter. Kids must be 13 years of age to go alone, and if under 13, they must be accompanied by someone 18 years and older. A 13-year-old sibling cannot watch a younger sibling.
- Please be courteous to others also at the pool! No throwing toys or balls over others or across the pool, and no running and screaming! If your kid is running and screaming stop them.
- Use headphones, not everyone likes your music.
- No food or drinks in the pool. Keep this to the sides and away from the water, and clean up your spills and trash.
- This is a neighborhood pool, wear appropriate attire. No tighty-whities, or undergarments, and please keep it classy. Remember this is a family community.
- Leave the city garbage cans outside the pool gates. These are used by dog walkers and others in the community, so should not be inside the pool area.
- Do not bring pets inside the pool area, and don’t tie pets up outside the pools, so they can bark the entire time for your attention. Take them home.
