Capital Projects Update

The Board of Directors would like to make DHARA members aware of two significant capital projects we are currently researching and hope to execute in CY’18.

The first project is removal of the aging wooden fire escape located over the entryway leading to the upper pool deck. The stairway will be replaced by a new egress and ADA compliant patio walkway at the front of the Community House. The second project is to fully renovate the men’s and women’s bathrooms to resolve significant drainage and ventilation issues and improve aethetics.

We believe both projects are necessary to improve the safety and overall usability of the facility.

The Board has engaged an architecture firm to provide preliminary design ideas and cost estimates. We are also exploring financing options. Our discovery effort is still in progress.

Upon completion of our analysis, the results will be shared with the membership for their review and input. To ensure every member has the opportunity to respond with comments and feedback, a special membership meeting dedicated solely to this topic is being planned to be held before the end of the year. To maximize attendance at the meeting and encourage participation in this important matter the membership will be given 30 days prior notice of the special meeting date.

Text Alert Notifications for Emergencies and Pool Closures

DHARA is offering to its members a text alert service for pool closures and emergency notifications. The service, RainedOut, might be familiar to you, because it is used by local sports clubs.

To begin receiving alerts text DHARA to 84483 or click on this link. Enter your 10 digit phone number (without hyphens or parentheses), check that you agree with the terms of service (assuming you do), and click “start signup.” A text message will be sent to your phone from 844-83 with a 4 digit validation code. Enter that validation code on the website you were just using to enter information, because a box should appear on the website asking for your validation code.

You may be charged by your carrier the normal charge for receiving a text, but there is no other cost.

The service will only notify you about pool closures. You cannot send messages to DHARA using this service.

DHARA will use text messages in limited circumstances to notify members of a pool closure. A message will be sent only after DHARA staff have assured the safety of the members already at the pool. That means you may not receive a message the moment a decision has been made to close the pool due to weather or some other event.

DHARA is not responsible for any inconvenience caused by receiving a delayed message. As always, members expecting to visit the pool on a day when weather could close the pool are encouraged to monitor local weather reports and plan their schedule accordingly.

Please try out this service and give us your feedback about how well it is working.
