Pool Information
The Pool Card Request Waiver is required for pool card activation. All previously approved paper waivers are obsolete.
 
You can read, complete, and submit the Pool Card Request Waiver online from the Documents section of your account page on the Smartwebs Resident Portal
or on the TCV homepage in the right-side menu.
 
Waivers must be completed, signed by, and submitted by the property owner, BEFORE a card can be activated.
 
Pool Season
The Board reviews and defines the primary operating hours and open/dates, each year, BEFORE the scheduled open date, based on the previous year’s open date.
 
In 2024, our pool is open to members and their guests beginning in April and closing in October.
 
In 2024, the pool is open daily from 6 am to 10 pm. 
 
Members must have an active pool key card to access the pool.
 
Anyone inside the pool area who does not have or is not with someone who has an active key card is trespassing, and should be reported to the management company.  Yes, this includes Members. If the person does not have an active key card or is with someone who dos not have an active key card, that person trespassing. This applies to anyone who gains access by tailgating through the gate or by jumping the fence.
 
There could be several reasons a key card may not work, including but not limited to:
• the card is damaged
• the card has lost its data and needs to be reprogrammed
• the Member is past due on accounts
• the Member has active violations
• the Member does not have the latest signed Pool Card Request Waiver on file with the management company - you can complete and submit the form online from the Documents section of your dashboard on the Smartwebs Resident Portal, or on the TCV homepage in the right-side menu.
 
If you have a key that is not working, accessing the pool is considered trespassing.  You must contact the management company to resolve the issue.  Violation of this rule assigns any possible legal and/or financial liability to the Association and puts all Members at risk. 
 
Pool issues should be reported to the management company.
