NEW POOL BRACELET DETAILS: 6-28-17
In order to ensure that only eligible lot owners of Riverwalk HOA and their guests are the ones enjoying the amenities, we are instituting a process that will help control the entry of un-authorized persons and the potential for abuses to our property. (For PDF VERSION - Click Here)
The Riverwalk HOA will issue bracelets to all HOA members in good standing and their immediate families to be worn when using the Riverwalk Pool Amenity.
New bracelets will be issued annually prior to the opening of the pool. The color of the bracelet will change each year.
HOA Members in good standing will be required to complete the pool registration form identifying immediate family members living in household. I.E spouse/significant other, school-aged children name and age.
All members and their immediate family must have the bracelet on them at all times while using the pool amenity. We encourage all members to challenge anyone who does not have a bracelet on them and advise them to leave the pool area, or they will be reported as trespassing.
If a person without a bracelet states they are a guest of a member, then the adult HOA Member (the owner of record for lot) must be present and identify them as their guest, in order to be allowed to remain, provided the number of guests per HOA Member is met.
Individuals who indicate they left their bracelet at home will be told to leave the pool amenity area and return home to get the bracelet and return.
Lost bracelets will be replaced with written notice to the board Vice President. A fee of $10.00 for first occurrence and $20 for second occurrence will be payable prior to issuing a new bracelet. No more than 2 bracelets will be replaced per pool season.
Wearing of 2017 Bracelets will be begin 7/1/17.
We will turn off all FOBS and reactivate them when we receive the signed Pool Registration Form and you have picked up your bracelets .
We will be available at the Clubhouse to pass out the Bracelets on June 28, 29 between 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM and June 30 th between 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Please bring your completed Pool Registration form as well as the signed acknowledgement of the 2017 Pool rules.

Unattended, solo swimming is prohibited
NO MORE THAN 4 GUESTS PER LOT AND THE LOT OWNER (owner of record) MUST BE PRESENT AT ALL TIMES WHEN GUESTS ARE AT POOL.
In the event you have a situation where additional guests are attending (out of town guests, family) a request must be submitted to the board.
Children 17 and under cannot use pool without their parent present.
Children 3 years old or younger, as well as any child who is not potty trained, MUST wear snug fitting plastic pants over a water proof swim diaper.
NO GLASS articles (beer bottles, glasses, soda bottles, etc.) are allowed in pool, pool area (inside fence) or Playground.
NO food, drink or wrappers shall be permitted within 10 feet of pools.
NO running or rough play allowed - please monitor your children!

NO swimming during heavy rain or when thunder and lightning can be seen or heard. Report any violation to a board member.
The use of balls, frisbees, Corn hole game and bats, no matter what material they are made of, are NOT permitted inside the pool area. The pool area is for the enjoyment of all the members who deserve to come to our pool to swim, snorkel, read, etc., without the disruption these articles bring.
ID BRACELETS WILL BE WORN AT ALL TIMES WHILE IN POOL AREA. You may be asked to leave if you are not wearing.
Please be considerate of your neighbors and clean up after yourself when leaving pool area. There are several trash containers around the pool.
Please make sure all in your family are aware of these pool rules.
** POOL GATE MUST BE KEPT CLOSED ALL TIMES .
County pool inspectors do impromptu inspections during the season. If they find gate open and not secured, they will close pool down indefinitely.
All residents are asked to take responsibility to ensure the gate is closed at all times and please do not let anyone in who does not have their fob, even if they have a ID bracelet, as its probably due to being non-current on dues, or they may not be from our neighborhood.
The pool and all Riverwalk amenities are for the enjoyment of Riverwalk lot owners who have paid their dues in full. All key fobs have been activated for those members who are in good standing.
If your fob is not functioning and you are in good standing contact Paul Lundsford at email@example.com or Byerl Sawyer – Byerlsawyer@comcast.net .
Lost your FOB? Replacements keys are available for $25.
The Riverwalk Pool Will Remain Closed until Further Notice
6-10-17: We suspect that the pool restrooms were vandalized sometime during Friday afternoon or evening. The party or parties involved flushed a significant amount of toilet paper & other debris which caused the entire system to clog.
Some of the repairs have been made, but there are still additional actions that must take place before we can open the facility including a complete sterilization of both the men's and ladies room.
We ask that all residents stay away from the pool and playground area as the ground is open outside the pool fence.
We will be reviewing the camera tapes to try to determine which parties may have been responsible and decide whether law enforcement involvement is warranted.
Folks, the cost of repairing and cleaning this situation is significant. As a member of the association, it's important that everyone be involved in monitoring and reporting activities you deem suspicious.
We ask that you notify the board if you or anyone in your family has knowledge of who is responsible.
We will announce when the pool is open for use again.
Riverwalk HOA Board of Directors
The Procedures for Tree Removal are:
There have been several questions recently about what the process is for removing trees from a Riverwalk property. An application MUST be filled out and returned to the Architectural Control Committee for review prior to trees being removed:
- Any Live Tree over 6”in diameter measured from a point 2' above ground level is clearly marked.
- If numerous trees are to be removed, please mark the remaining trees in a different color.
- A detailed plan of plants and shrubbery you plan to add to any area visible from the street must be submitted with the application.
Click here for the Architectural Review Application
Following these procedures will facilitate processing of the application. The link to the ACC Application is located above. The completed application can be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or put in the mailbox at the Clubhouse.
If you any questions about the process, please contact
Allison Tinsley at 248-909-2293 , email email@example.com
Riverwalk Pool Opening Friday, May 19
The HOA Board is planning to open the pool at 12 noon on Friday, May 19, 2017 as pre-opening requirements for the pool have been completed. The pool will remain closed until that time.
Due to software changes in our security system, many of our long time members will need to stop by and pick up a new fob.
If your key fob looks like the one on the right in the picture, then Beryl Sawyer will be at the pool/clubhouse Wednesday and Thursday, May 17 & 18 from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM for members to pick up their new fob. After that time, you will need to call him at
for an appointment to pick up your fob.
If your key fob looks like the one on the left, you do NOT need to get a replacement.
Again, only those with the old type fob on the right in the photo will need to get a replacement. None of the fobs will work on the pool gate until Friday May 19, 2017 at 12 Noon.

Front Entrance Sign Repair Update
4/29/17 - - This week we finally reached an agreement with the parties involved in the removal and destruction of over half the letters in the Riverwalk sign. This has been a long drawn out ordeal complicated by dealing with law enforcement, the ages of those involved, and the number of individuals involved. During any investigation everyone has to be sensitive to what information is published. We thank you for your patience.
The good news is the order for replacement letters has been placed and we should know soon when the work can be completed. Even better news is the agreement should keep the HOA at zero cost for replacement of the letters.
Again, thank you for being patient and understanding during this process. We will update construction schedules when they are available.
Overnight Clubhouse Parking
Effective April 17, 2017, No Parking will be permitted in the Clubhouse Parking Lots from 12AM to 7AM. Cars parked in the Lots will be towed away and impounded at the owner's expense . Signs will be posted at the lots that provide violators with information to retrieve their vehicle. Written requests for a Temporary Parking permit must be submitted 48 hours in advance to the following HOA Board members for approval, Allison Tinsley email@example.com
The request must state:
- Lot owner name
- Date(s) requested for permit
- Make, Model, Color of Vehicle, Vehicle Owner's Name
- License Plate#
Riverwalk Entrance Sign Vandalism
Our Riverwalk entrance sign was vandalized, once again, on Saturday night (Feb 11, 2017). In this instance, the vandals took the letters with them. The Douglas County Sheriff's office was notified and a report has been filed. At this time, this is an active criminal investigation.
If anyone saw anything suspicious on Saturday night or has any information regarding this incident we ask that you please contact the Sheriff's office.
In the meantime, we are getting quotes to replace the stolen letters and fix our entrance. We estimate the cost per lot will be in the range of $80 - $100.

Today's Pool Closure
7-9-16: Today, the pool was unable to open until 1:30pm to allow for a special cleanup of the Women's Restroom due to human excrement all over the floor. PLEASE – remember – this is YOUR property! Treat it as if it were your home and make sure your guests abide by proper courtesy and respect of our property. BE AWARE: THE COUNTY WILL SHUT OUR POOL FOR LESS!!!
7-9-16: We discovered today that some of our newer residents who signed up online to receive emails, and a few longer time residents who signed up since our annual meeting, were somehow not fully placed into our system. Gail, our website administrator, has made some adjustments so this shouldn't happen again in the future. However, if you signed up for emails, and you did not receive today's "blast" about the pool, please feel free to drop her a note at email@example.com so she can double check that all is fixed.
The Pool is open for all members and their immediate families that are fully current with all HOA 2016 assessments.
We want everyone to enjoy the pool facility and help us keep your property in excellent working order. Please pick up your trash and lower umbrellas before you leave the pool area.
If you or family members visit the pool and your FOB is not functional you will need to contact:
- Paul Lunsford (770-949-4740) or
This year, we have contracted with Mr. Jordan Carter to serve as the Pool Attendant. He will be acting on behalf of the board of directors and has full authority to ensure that only those who are fully paid HOA Members are allowed access to the pool and adjoining facilities. He will also be monitoring all activities at the pool to ensure that everyone follows the Riverwalk HOA Pool rules, the Riverwalk Guest policy to ensure we keep people from outside of Riverwalk out of the pool.
Any violations will result in restriction of access and notification to the proper authority if needed.
The pool will open at 9:00 AM daily, and will close at 10:00 PM Sunday – Thursday, and close at 11:00 PM Friday and Saturday.
It is important that everyone realize that the pool entry gate must be closed after entry . In the event the gate is left or propped open for longer than 45 seconds an audible alarm will sound and remain on until the gate is fully closed. The event is automatically recorded in the logs and notifications to the proper authorities will be made.
Again, we hope you enjoy the facilities and wish you a safe and happy summer.
