Amenities Access Reminder
Posted on Mar 9th, 2018

Pinetop Lakes Association (PLA) is a private, members only, homeowner’s association.

Your association and its amenities are becoming quite popular.  There were 120 property sales in the association in 2017.  As many of you know the boundaries of PLA have some interesting pockets, as a result some folks simply just walk in off the street and say, “We’re here”, and think they are on their way to the pool and of course that is not the case.  Also, sadly we have members tell friends “assume member’s identity” and attempt to use the amenities.  We also have had people say “I am a guest of…” although that member is not with them or they had come in with a member previously and try to come in by suggesting that gives them carte blanche to come in any time; of course not.  There are other ways people try to enter and without a doubt people have had success entering when they do not have the privilege to do so.

Therefore, access of individuals will be more scrutinized.  This is to ensure the people who have the privilege to enter the amenities get to and those that don’t, cannot.

  • Everyone who wishes to enter the recreation center must have their ID to show to staff at all times or your access may be denied.  You must check in at the front desk before moving onto your activity regardless how many people are in front of you waiting to do the same.
  • Remember if a member has a CCR violation, an account balance, etc…access will be denied to the amenities for any person associated with that property until the member handles the respective matter.
  • Remember, guest passes and the additional six list are items PLA has added to be more member friendly, but are not an obligation to be provided.

This is a private facility. Members pay annual dues to have access, not friends, not co-workers, etc…nobody enters without approval of PLA.   Even members who have been coming in and out of the recreation center for years need to have their ID ready to show.  Members, there is a very good chance some staff may ask for your ID while others don’t, that is based on staff first-hand experience and knowledge, not member comments.  Also, a reminder to members with their own fitness center cards; it is yours to use, not a co-worker, friend, etc.  Even if you are just going to the fitness center have an ID handy in the event staff spot-checks who is in our private facility.  PLA can and will turn your card off if it is being used by a non-member.  You will not get it back and you will not receive a refund.  You are putting at risk your access to our amenities by not abiding by the guidelines.

A second item related to the information above is PLA members bringing guests to our amenities.  While it is okay for members to do so, if another member’s ability to participate in an activity is hindered because non-members are taking up slots…pickleball, pool, tennis, etc… who do you think will be denied access or asked to leave our amenities?  Not PLA members.

  • Members bringing guests to our amenities must remain with their guests throughout their guest's time on site.  You are responsible for your guest(s).

Should there be issues with these items or related in nature, member access may be denied, fitness center card revoked, restrict guest access and more.  Ignorance of the guidelines is not an excuse.

We are all very proud of this place and work hard to keep it a place that 120 families want to buy properties in your association.  Help us keep it that way, be prepared with your IDs and follow the guidelines that you legally agreed to upon becoming an owner/member of Pinetop Lakes Association.

From our Fire Chief:
I have attached an easy read article regarding the Thomas Fire in CA. More importantly, the writer discusses the obvious trends we are seeing across the country in terms of wildfire risk. I think the final paragraph summarizes our risk just substitute the state with the Town of Pinetop.  Given our very dry winter thus far, this is becoming a greater concern for our region as well. Please feel free to push the article out to your HOA property owners.
Thank you for your continued efforts to keep our respective communities safe and have a Merry Christmas,
Jim Morgan, CFO, MSFA, EFO

Facility Access
Posted on Jun 23rd, 2017
Please make sure you have your IDs with you when you are using association amenities, including the fitness center because members are having friends “claim” their identities.  Should we catch someone doing this they will be asked to leave because they are trespassing and the member and everyone on the member’s family list will be barred from the facilities for 30 days, fitness center card turned off, and the member will be fined.  Access will be denied beyond the 30 days should the fine not be paid.  The penalties increase with each infraction.
Once again, our amenities are a private, member’s only: perk, privilege and benefit.
