July 2023 Community Newsletter
We loved seeing everyone out for the spring market, garage sale, and 4th of July. These events take time and energy in planning, and we have a great group of volunteers, so THANK YOU to all who helped and attended!
Aerial fireworks are illegal. Please remember to use caution when lighting fireworks, keeping them away from neighboring homes and roofs. This year’s reports about damage to trampolines, homes, yards, and lack of cleanup after the holiday were excessive. If you choose to use legal fireworks for future events or holidays, please be sure to be safe and courteous to neighbors, and clean up after yourself.
If you have a small motorized scooter, bike, or car that children are driving please make sure they know not to jump out into the street from between cars, and that these are not allowed in the common areas where they are tearing up the grass. Please also do not park golf carts in the grass or on sidewalks.
The CC&RS require you to use your garage for parking automobiles first before storage of your things or recreational items. This means your regular cars should go in the garage first. Once full, you can use the driveway. The street is to be used last and by guests. Recreational items like trailers, boats, campers should not be out in view for more than 24 hours while you load and unload them. After that they must be removed. We understand that sometimes something may happen that takes longer than the 24 hours. Please reach out, and we can work with you on this, but you should adhere to the rules otherwise. We have started sending final notices and will begin fines on those that do not respond to these violations or any others.
Vandalism & Crime Report
We occasionally get reports of garbage cans going missing, decorations disappearing, egging, ding-dong ditching, late night meetings in the parks, so please make sure you know what your teens are doing. Want to know what kind of crime has been reported in our area? You can view this online at: https://gisprod.adacounty.id.gov/apps/crimemapper/.

Don’t break the RULES!!! They are in place for everyone’s enjoyment and safety. Parents, you are in charge of your children, so most of those are broken by you… Please make sure you and your family or guests are adhering to the below:
- Use appropriate plastic swim pants for those still potty training. Basic swim diapers are not enough (they leak) and this causes pool shutdowns. You are on camera, and the key system monitors when go to the pool. You will be charged for cleanup costs if caught.
- No oversized inflatables! Drowning is silent and these take up too much room, and can cause a terrible accident.
- The pool closes at 10pm. After 10pm you are trespassing, and we will report to the police and turn of cards.
- Do not let people in without a key!!!! Letting outside people in will fill the pools faster, wear them down, and then there’s no way to hold anyone responsible for any damage or issues they cause. We’ve seen lots of kids push the button to let people in as well. Please make sure they know not to do this. If you bring in guests, please make sure you are being courteous to other owners by not completely over-taking the pool.
- The pool is not your babysitter. Kids must be 13 years of age to go alone, and if under 13, they must be accompanied by someone 18 years and older. A 13-year-old sibling cannot watch a younger sibling.
- Please be courteous to others also at the pool! No throwing toys or balls over others or across the pool, and no running and screaming! If your kid is running and screaming stop them.
- Use headphones, not everyone likes your music.
- No food or drinks in the pool. Keep this to the sides and away from the water, and clean up your spills and trash.
- This is a neighborhood pool, wear appropriate attire. No tighty-whities, or undergarments, and please keep it classy. Remember this is a family community.
- Leave the city garbage cans outside the pool gates. These are used by dog walkers and others in the community, so should not be inside the pool area.
- Do not bring pets inside the pool area, and don’t tie pets up outside the pools, so they can bark the entire time for your attention. Take them home.
If you’re interested in organizing an event for the community, please reach out to HOA@brightoncorp.com.
