Residents - We all work very hard to maintain the luxuries which we have been afforded as being a resident of this wonderful community. I know as a resident of Avalon for over 13 years, I have enjoyed the amenities which initially attracted my husband and me to Avalon - the pool, clubhouse, weight room, well maintained common areas, enforced covenants, and now a small park/playground which our younger boys love monkeying around on. As the weather has gotten warmer and with school getting out for the summer, more and more people are utilizing these luxuries we are afforded. With that, please note as a resident you have the right to address any concerns you have regarding abuse of privileges within these common areas. You pay dues to maintain these facilities not to have to continuously repair them due to abuse by individuals. Sadly, there has been abuse of privileges in our common areas that our dues are having to be used to repair equipment, painting over vandalism, repair damage to equipment, etc. The pool is for swimming and beating the heat, not for a local hangout or people watch. Also, only AVALON residents and Avalon residents' guests, as long as the resident is of age and is present, are allowed to use the pool. Do not let anyone in without a key. They can contact Charles Stewart, AHOA Manager, to obtain a card for proper access. The weight room is for exercising, not an air conditioned lounge for teens to hang out. There are minimum age requirements for minors using common areas without adult (over age 18). The following is not allowed under any circumstance within any common areas - LOITERING - within pool area, weight room, clubhouse, or park. Also LOITERING is prohibited in parking areas throughout subdivision. Residents are asked to contact Rankin County Sherriff Office who has vowed to address any issues noted. I highly suggest you enter their phone number in your phone contacts - 601.825.1480. The homeowners association is working to obtain surveillance equipment to ensure proper protection of our common areas and deter future problems. Also, if abuse of these privileges occur by minors, the parent's will be informed, held responsible for any damage if applicable, and access to these common areas will be revoked. Rankin County Sheriff Office will be contacted for violations if necessary. Parents please discuss with your children the seriousness of these matters. A friendly reminder that pets are not allowed in the park area, nor the clubhouse and pool. Let's all work together to maintain the wonderful and safe neighborhood which we proudly call home.
