Free Newspaper Delivery Questions
Several homeowners have asked about how to stop the delivery of the free newspapers that come to our neighborhood and if it's possible for the HOA to request that they not be delivered to our neighborhoods. It is our understanding that each individual homeowner must call and request delivery to stop. They will not honor a request by the HOA to stop delivery for the entire neighborhood. Information to contact each paper is located in the publication. If you don't want to receive these, we encourage you to contact them to request non-delivery for your home. Thank you!
ANOTHER MESSAGE FROM THE POOL ASSOCIATION: VANDALISM AND TRESPASSING NOTICE
The Pool Board is asking for your HELP!
The 2019 swim season once again saw a number of incidents of vandalism take place. These incidents resulted in many costly repairs having to be completed, including repairs to the fence at the Fairways and replacement of the liner at the Legends. The new playset at the Meadows was damaged in September due to people riding skateboards down the slide. Repairs will take considerable time while parts are ordered and shipped from China.
Buoy ropes have been damaged from swimmers sitting and pulling on ropes.
Reports of gates being propped open, which damages spring and allows non-members access to pool.
Reports of children under the age of 16 being at all pools without parent or guardian supervision.
Kids climbing over fence at Fairways pool during the daytime.
Trespassing by members and non-members in pools after 10:00PM.
Copy of complete pool rules is listed on website: auburnhillspools.com

Vandalism at the Pools
As you know, we all belong to a separate HOA (Auburn Hills Swimming Facility Master Assoc.) that manages the four swimming pools (Enclave, Fairways, Legends and Meadows), and the two clubhouses (Meadows and Legends). Unfortunately we have been experiencing quite a bit of vandalism at the pools. On 7/9/15 - Someone threw large clods of dirt in to the pool at the Fairways and smeared mud over two of the walls of the bathhouse. Also on 7/9/15 - someone put what appears to be firecrackers in the toilet of the Meadow's pool restroom and basically blew up the toilet causing water from the toilet to run everywhere, etc. I believe the restroom is still "out of order" while the toilet, etc., gets repaired. This does not include the regular "damage" the pools receive when people cut or pick at the liners (very costly), damage the pool ropes, etc. The pool association works very hard to keep costs down and so when vandalism occurs it hurts all of us as homeowners. OUR DUES PAY FOR THE UPKEEP on these 4 pools, clubhouses, basketball goals, landscaping, ponds, playgrounds, etc. Sadly it appears a few bad apples are spoiling the bunch so we need your help! If you see anyone doing anything destructive please report it to HOA Management immediately and/or call 911. The pool association does have a method of determining who's in the pool so noting the date and time you see something is very important. Also you could snap a picture of the "alleged suspects" and we can post them on this page as an attempt to locate them. Please pass this information along to your neighbors so we can all be on the lookout. Thank you!
