Below is the latest update from the Palm Greens Recreation Association Board of Directors regarding the pool and tennis courts. Please note, links to the “Amended Rules & Requirements” and the “Wavier Form” for the use of the pool and tennis courts are posted at the bottom of this announcement.
STATUS OF PALM GREENS RECREATION ASSOCIATION FACILITY RE-OPENINGS
JULY 1, 2020
As many Palm Greens residents are aware, on June 14th the Recreation Association Board of Directors promulgated Rules and Requirements for the Recreation Association’s re-opening of its tennis courts and pool. We indicated at that time that the Board had not yet established precise dates for a re-opening and that a decision in that regard would turn on the status of the coronavirus in Palm Beach County.
The Board hoped to re-open the Association’s tennis courts and pool prior to the July 4th holiday. Recreation Association staff were directed to prepare the facilities for a July 3rd opening and those arrangements are nearly completed. The Board also discussed and agreed to adjustments to the Rules and Requirements, again in anticipation of a July 3 opening. The revised Rules and Requirements are posted in conjunction with this announcement.
Unfortunately, the re-opening of our facilities has now been put on hold in light of the ongoing, serious spike in the transmission of the Covid-19 virus and the very real prospect of community spread. Simply put the benefit of re-opening does not, in the Board’s judgement, outweigh the current risk to the Palm Greens community and staff.
It is our hope that the steps that are now being taken by Palm Beach County and neighboring counties will serve to contain the spread of the virus and that the infection will plateau and begin to come down. The Recreation Association Board of Directors will be closely monitoring the available data in that regard.
In the interim the Board would like to assure year-round residents and Snow Birds, whose departures have been delayed, that the Board deeply regrets this postponement and that it remains committed to a prompt re-opening of our facilities as things improve.
Our preparations are in place for when that day comes and we would ask the residents to prepare as well by signing and returning the required wavier, as soon as possible, and by ensuring that they have a current white, credit card style Palm Greens Recreation Association ID. We don’t want to turn anyone away at the door!
Wavier forms can be picked up and returned outside the entrance to the Clubhouse. The form can also be downloaded from the link at the end of this announcement. Should a resident require a replacement ID, he or she should contact the Recreation Association office at 561-498-5316.
The Recreation Association Board of Directors has received comments both in opposition to and support of how the Board intends to approach the re-opening of the Association’s facilities when the time comes. We continue to believe that the interests of the Palm Greens community are best served by the Board’s decision to go slow and err on the side of caution as to the extent of our initial re-opening.
That being said, the Board wishes to emphasize that the Amended Rules & Requirements are intended to be a starting point and are not carved in stone. The amenity schedules and reservation requirements can be adjusted based upon actual attendance. And user cooperation and compliance with social distancing and other rules will be a key factor in the Board’s determinations as to whether the initial capacity and monitoring restrictions will be relaxed or eliminated.
Thank you again for your patience, cooperation and support.
