VOWS Pool Access Card Registration

Dear VOWS Residents,

In order to remove unauthorized users from the pool access system, we are going to deactivate all of the VOWS pool access cards.
To reactivate your card, please call (817) 741-1719 OR fax (817) 741-741-1720 OR email vows.admin@fsresidential.com OR stop by the onsite office (12209 Timberland Blvd) and provide your name, VOWS property address and pool access card number. If the information you provide matches the information we have in your file, we will reactivate your card.

If you are an owner and the information you provide does not match our records, you may be asked to provide proof of current ownership.

Owners of rental homes, please update your tenant information. The VOWS governing documents require that Owners register all lessees/tenants with the Association within (30) days of each lease providing their full name(s), their contact information, additional occupants, lease commencement and expiration dates and managing agent information, if any. Pool access cards of renters who have not been registered by the owner will not be reactivated.

All pool access cards will be deactivated on Monday, December 5, 2016. You may contact the office any time after that date to reactivate your card.

Please remember that these cards also give access to the playground bathrooms, so you may wish to reactivate them immediately.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Pool Access Cards

Valid pool access cards are required at all community pool locations. If you already have a pool access card, it will work at all pool gates and restrooms for the 2016 pool season. If you would like to acquire a new pool access card, please visit the onsite management office at 12209 Timberland Blvd. Replacement and additional access cards are available to residents at a cost of $25 per card. If you rent your home and wish to purchase a pool access card, you must present a completed Tenant Authorization Form and show proof of current residence. The form may be obtained at the onsite management office.

All residents must utilize their pool access cards to enter the pools and restroom facilities. Please do not open the gates for patrons without a valid access card and please do not ask other residents to let you into the pool areas. As in the past years, pool security monitors will be checking with each pool patron to ensure that their pool access card is active. Inactive or invalid pool access cards may remain with security. These cards will be provided to the FirstService Residential onsite management office on a daily basis.

Reminder to Follow Pool Rules

Please ensure that all persons utilizing the pools strictly adhere to the posted pool rules. Pools rules are posted at each of the pool locations and in the PDF document attached above.

All residents and their accompanied guests are responsible for knowing and adhering to these rules. The rules have been established for the general safety and enjoyment of everyone using the pool facilities. In the event that any resident or accompanied guests fail to adhere to any of the posted pool rules, they will be asked to vacate the pool premises. Residents continually and consistently in violation of the established pool rules risk revocation of their pool access privileges. Additionally, vandalism of any degree will not be tolerated at the pools, restrooms or other common community areas.
