2020 Pool Season 

The MNC and the Board of Governors are excited to open the pools for the 2020 pool season. While we want to have a fun summer at The Grange and Taft House Pools, we have to make sure we are following social distancing measures to keep our community healthy.

Updated Pool Capacities per Douglas County Variance

The variance request submitted by Douglas County was approved to allow up to 50% capacity or 250 people, whichever is fewer for outdoor pools. Effective Wednesday, July 1, The Grange can accommodate 250 people and the Taft House can accommodate 200 people.

To maximize capacity and cleaning procedures, we are still doing 90 minute time-slots, with 30 minute cleaning breaks. We are using this next week to evaluate the new system and we will make adjustments as needed. There is no limit how many times you can go to the pool per day or per week. If you want to re-enter the pool for the next time-slot, you must collect all of your belongings, exit the pool and re-enter the line for the following time-slot. There are no longer pool reservations. The time-slots are first come, first served. 

Time-slots: 10:00-11:30 am, 12:00 – 1:30 pm, 2:00 – 3:30 pm, 4:00-5:30 pm, 6:00-7:30 pm


COVID-19 release waivers will still be required for all residents and caregivers entering the pool facilities. The Association will deny entry to any person who does not have a signed waiver on file. Waivers will be available online and must be submitted 72 hours prior to the first time you're using the pool for the 2020 season to guarantee it will be entered in time before you come. Residents who have not submitted a wavier 72 hours in advance can submit a waiver in person at the pool check in. Waivers can be sent to pools@meadowslink.comWaivers will only need to be filled out once for the summer, not each time. Waivers can be found HERE, www.meadowslink.com and at the pool entrance. Persons age 18 and over must submit their own waiver. Persons under age 18 must have their legal guardian sign the waiver. Failure to complete and submit a waiver will result in loss of pool usage.

If you have not submitted a waiver for the summer yet, please fill one out prior to entering the pool line. You can hand your waiver to the pool check in staff as you go through the line. The line will move significantly faster if everyone either has a waiver submitted prior or has one filled out ready to give to the check in staff. 

Guest passes will still be disabled until further notice.

Starting July 5th, there will not be reservations and pool attendance will be first come, first served at 250 people for The Grange and 200 people for the Taft House for the following time-slots: 10:00-11:30 am, 12:00 – 1:30 pm, 2:00 – 3:30 pm, 4:00-5:30 pm, 6:00-7:30 pm

Lap Swim:

Lap swim will be offered Monday, Wednesday Friday and Saturday from 8:00 – 9:30 am starting Wednesday, July 1 at The Grange Pool. This is first come, first served. No reservations required. 


Weather Protocols and Updates:
When lightning/thunder is spotted/heard, the pool facilities will close for 30 minutes. Each time lightning/thunder is spotted/heard, the 30 minutes will extend. The best way to stay updated with lightning closures for the MNC pools is to download The Meadows App. It is in the app store and the app picture is the MNC logo. When you download the app, you can enable push notifications and you will receive a notification every time we post a lightning closure and/or when the pool is safe to open after a storm has passed. If you do not enable push notifications, you can enter the app and see the notifications on the top right hand corner. If inclement weather, bowel accidents or other acts of God instances occur during the time-slot, the reservation will not be extended into the next hour.
