We have received numerous comments concerning provisions of the draft Rules and Regulations that describe the District’s recreational amenities as available for use by the “general public”, in addition to the residents of Water Valley. We thought it would be helpful to provide some additional discussion as to these provisions…
The District’s recreational facilities have always been available for use by the general public in accordance with State law and agreements with the Town of Windsor. The proposed Rules and Regulations do not expand upon the public uses previously required and allowed, but they do establish the regulations that we really need to better manage access to the District’s facilities by non-residents, which includes the requirement to obtain a Recreation Pass and pay non-resident use fees. Historically, there have not been conflicts between resident and non-resident use. However, the new regulations will allow the District to track usage by non-residents, and allow the Board to assess whether additional regulations may be necessary regarding non-resident use to make sure that the District’s recreation facilities are available for use by District residents and otherwise available for use within reason and according to law by the general public.
Again, thank you for taking the time to review the Use Policy and provide important comment. The Use Policy is a compilation of various policies that have been in effect for some time, in addition to enhancements, that allow for a more comprehensive, user-friendly guideline for use of facilities. Responses to comments received that are shared by several residents will be in the form of a general broadcast distribution. Other individual questions or concerns will be addressed as received.
