Pool Trespassing and Vandalism

Featured

Community pools are wonderful places where families and friends can gather to relax, cool off, and have fun during the hot summer months. However, it is important to remember that community pools are shared spaces that should be treated with respect. Unfortunately, we find that teenagers break into and vandalize community pools every summer, which can have serious consequences.

We have video footage of four male teenagers and one female teenager trespassing and vandalizing one of the community pools last weekend. The event occurred between 2 and 3 am on Sunday, May 19th. The teens were observed on camera climbing the fence, swimming, attempting to vandalize the vending machines and refrigerator, and breaking into a storage shed where they took numerous items and threw them into the pool. They also threw pool furniture into the main and wading pools. As a responsible community, we have taken the necessary steps to address this incident by sharing the footage with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and the School Resource Officers (SROs). We are sharing one of the videos here and asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects. It is important for us to work together to uphold the safety and security of our community spaces. By collaborating with the authorities and asking for help identifying the individuals, we aim to hold them accountable for their actions.

Please take a moment to review the video and let us know if you can identify the subjects. Also please speak to your teens about the dangers and consequences of these kinds of activities. First and foremost, breaking into and vandalizing community pools is illegal – it is considered trespassing and vandalism, which are criminal offenses that can result in fines, community service, or even juvenile detention. By engaging in such activities, teens are not only breaking the law but also potentially putting themselves at risk of getting into serious trouble with the authorities.

Moreover, vandalizing community pools can be costly to repair. The damage caused by breaking in, graffiti, broken equipment, and other acts of vandalism can add up to significant expenses for the community and pool management. These costs are ultimately borne by the community members, leading to higher assessments to cover the repairs. It can also make the pool a less safe and enjoyable place for everyone to use, as damaged facilities may pose safety hazards to swimmers.

Additionally, swimming in a dark, closed pool with no lifeguards on duty is downright dangerous for several reasons. Firstly, in a dark pool, it can be challenging to see the pool’s boundaries, depth markers, or other swimmers. This lack of visibility can increase the risk of accidents, collisions, or even drowning, especially if the pool has sudden changes in depth or obstacles that are not easily visible in the darkness. Secondly, without a lifeguard on duty, there is no one present to supervise swimmers, provide assistance in case of an emergency, or perform a rescue if someone gets into trouble. In the event of an accident or a swimmer experiencing difficulties in the water, the absence of a lifeguard can lead to delayed response times and potentially tragic outcomes. Furthermore, swimming in a dark pool can also increase the likelihood of slips, trips, or falls around the pool area, as visibility is reduced, and hazards may not be easily noticeable without proper lighting and supervision.

We appreciate your cooperation and support as we strive to maintain a safe and welcoming environment for everyone in our community. If you have any information that could assist in identifying the teens involved, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@Broadlandshoa.com or 703-729-9704. Let’s work together to keep our community pools clean, safe, and fun for all!

Tillett’s View Application Deferred – Resident Feedback Welcome

Featured

A Message from Broad Run Supervisor Sylvia Glass: The Tillet’s View residential rezoning application has been deferred to the Board of Supervisors July 2nd Business Meeting for final action, due to supervisor absences at the Board’s Public Hearing on May 15th. A June date could not be utilized, due to advertising deadlines for the June Public Hearing. This application proposes to rezone the 50 acres of undeveloped land surrounding the intersections of Belmont Ridge Road, Waxpool Road, and Black Angus Drive from lower density residential to higher density residential.

There are four upcoming opportunities to address the full Board regarding this application. Those Business Meeting dates are Thursday, May 23rd; Tuesday, June 4th; Tuesday, June 18th; and Tuesday, July 2nd for the final vote.  The time limit is 2.5 minutes for each speaking from either the podium in the Board Room or over the phone. You sign up in advance to address the full Board by calling 703-777-0200 or you can sign up by seeing the clerk in the board room during the meeting.  Information on Board meetings can be found at Loudoun.gov/Meetings.

If you are unable to attend a meeting but would like to share your thoughts on the application, please reach out to me via Loudoun.gov/BroadRun. If information on the application changes before July 2nd, I will share that information via my social media accounts, newsletter, and HOA messages. The staff analysis and application information packet from the May 15th Public Hearing is available here: Loudoun.granicus.com/MetaViewer.php?view_id=89&event_id=3821&meta_id=245425. Thank you to all that have come out to speak on this application on Wednesday night and who have continued to engage with me and the Board.
