Pool Rules

HICKORY POINTE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION
POOL RULES AND REGULATIONS


The pool rules and regulations of The Village of Hickory Pointe are established for the protection and benefit of the residents and to assure the safe and sanitary operation of the pool facilities.  Any failure to comply with these rules is cause for suspension of pool privileges.


Homeowners will be admitted with their pool pass. Please do not let a neighbor use your pass, if a neighbor does not have a pass it is because they have not paid their dues.  The passes are numbered and recorded to your address. If you lose your pass there will be a $10.00 charge for a new pass.
