2024 Pool News

Please find below the highlights of your 2024 Hartland pool membership. Click on each section heading to view the information.
 
Also, we've made a few changes for 2024:
 
Pool rules have been updated.
All families must complete the written acknowledgement of the rules and the waiver before being allowed in the pool facility. 
 
Forms for passes, pool rules, and family information must be completed electronically. 
We found out the hard way last year that forms don't survive wet conditions well. So, if you're interested in a caregiver or extended family pass or need to update information about your family members, please use the online form. If you are having difficulty completing an online form, the Hartland Property Manager can assist you during normal office hours (10-2 weekdays). We will also have an extra iPad at the pool for you to use.
 
Venmo is now accepted for guest fees. 
We've had a request to accept Venmo transfers, so we're going to give it a trial run in 2024. There is one caveat because it's not always possible to connect a Venmo ID with a specific Hartland resident: Each transaction needs a comment that includes the Hartland address initiating the transfer and the purpose of the transfer. If there is a Venmo transfer without a comments tying the money to a Hartland property or the purpose, we'll assume it's a donation (and thank you very much).
 
 

Pool Membership

The pool is open to Hartland residents in good standing with the Hartland Homeowners Association (HHA), their children whose legal address is in Hartland, their grandchildren up to age 16, and holders of special passes sponsored by the resident. 
 
To be in good standing, annual dues must be paid in full by May 20, 2024 and there cannot be any outstanding liens on the homeowner's property filed by the HHA. Persons entering the pool may be asked to provide proof of Hartland residency in the form of a KY driver's license or ID.
 
Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a supervising adult age 17 or older. A supervising adult can be a parent, grandparent, or older sibling that is a Hartland resident, or a caregiver with a current Hartland caregiver pass.
 
Grandchildren ages 16 and under are included in the Hartland pool membership of the property owners but grandchildren MUST be accompanied by their sponsoring grandparent at all times. The only exceptions to this rule are children where one of their parents has an Extended Family Membership for the season. In those cases, the Extended Family Membership holder may bring their children to the pool and supervise them. 
 

Pool Access

We use a software product called Poolpass to manage pool access. Poolpass receives information on residents from our website directory, hence our request to ensure the website is up to date with your family members. 
 
Poolpass supports an electronic pass (e-pass) on your phone or, if you don't mind a small fee, a credit-card sized
pass to carry in your pocket. The gate attendant will use a scanner to check you in at the gate ... no need to remember a pool membership number. The e-passes will be distributed shortly before the pool opens to all email addresses on file for the family. 
 

Pool Rules

Property owners must provide a written acknowledgement of the pool rules and a written waiver prior to being given access to the pool. Click here to complete the required form by May 20, 2024.
