Pool Rules and Regulations:

The Pool Rules and Regulations, which have been voted on and approved by the membership are attached below.  Please note that these Rules are also printed in your Directory and have been posted at the Pool.

NO GLASS OF ANY KIND ALLOWED ON THE POOL DECK.  Please note that our pool is regulated by Cobb County, which stipulates in the Cobb and Douglas County Public Health Pool Guidelines that only NON-BREAKABLE items can be on the pool deck (http://www.cobbanddouglaspublichealth.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/CBOH-Rules-and-Regulations-for-Swimming-Pools-effective-date-1.20.2018.pdf).  This is also a Highland Ridge Pool Rule, which has been voted on and approved by the membership and is Item 11 in our published rules.  Should glass break on the pool deck, the pool will need to be drained, vacuumed and refilled.  This will be at significant cost and would shut down our pool for a minimum of 4-5 days.  Should the Cobb County Health Department make a surprise inspection and glass is found on the pool deck, our pool could be shut down for the season.  For these reasons, we respectfully ask that all residents and guest keep their glass containers OUTSIDE the pool gate.

ANY CHILD WHO IS NOT POTTY TRAINED MUST WEAR SWIM DIAPERS.  Please be respectful of the other swimmers and make sure your toddler/baby is in a swim diaper at all times when in the water.  If any fecal matter is leaked into the pool, Cobb County Public Health Guidelines mandate that the pool must be shocked and closed for 24 hours to insure there is no contamination.

PARTIES OF 10 OR MORE MUST BE SCHEDULED WITH THE POOL CHAIR.  Please be respectful of your neighbors and schedule any social gatherings of 10 or more with the pool chair.  Any extra pool guards necessary for a larger party held at the pool during pool hours will be the responsibility of the hosting resident and must be scheduled 14 days prior to the event by going to www.atlanta-pmg.com/pool-parties.  Please, just be responsible and hire the extra lifeguard if your event will put a burden on the regularly schedule lifeguard.

The Highland Ridge Social Committee and some residents have a number of events planned for the pool this season.  Please be respectful of the fact that some of our community do not have pools at their house and like to enjoy this wonderful amenity while it is open.  The Cobb County Noise Ordinance Section 50-257 of the Cobb County Code – Enumeration of prohibited noises states that

“(2) Radios, phonographs, musical instruments. The using, operating or permitting to be played, used or operated of any radio receiving set, musical instrument, phonograph or other machine or device for the producing or reproducing of sound in a manner as to disturb the peace, quiet and comfort of the neighboring inhabitants or at any time with a volume louder than the convenient hearing of a person, not hearing impaired, who is within 40 feet of the device if outdoors, or in the room, vehicle or chamber in which the machine or device is operated, and who is a voluntary listener thereto. The operation of any set, instrument, phonograph, machine or device between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. in a manner as to be plainly audible at a distance of 50 feet from the device if outdoors, or 50 feet from the building, structure or vehicle in which it is located shall be prima facie evidence of a violation of this article.

(4) Yelling, shouting, etc. Yelling, shouting, hooting, whistling or singing on the public streets, particularly between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m., or at any time or place, so as to annoy or disturb the quiet, comfort or repose of persons in any office, dwelling, hotel or other type of residence or of any persons in the vicinity.”
