Residents are reminded to exercise caution around pools
Summer-like weather is just around the corner. As our thoughts turn to fun in the sun, we’d like to remind you to stay safe when you’re enjoying backyard pools. Visit the Health Canada or Red Cross websites for pool safety tips for you and your children.
An important reminder that District Bylaw #7353 requires that when repairing or constructing a pool you must have a valid building permit. Outdoor pools as well as spas and hot tubs must be enclosed with a fence and self-closing, self-latching gate. In lieu of a fence, spas and hot tubs may have a locking cover to prevent unauthorized access to the water. Each property owner/property occupier is responsible for maintaining the fence, gate and/or locking cover in good working order. For more information on District Bylaw 7353, please contact our Building General Enquiries line at 604-990-2480 or email email@example.com.
Construction update for May
Project update: The past few weeks have seen lots of work happening behind the scenes and this work is now starting to show on-site. The final supports for the tennis court building are now in place, and the roof and walls will follow soon. Look for the tennis courts, and the Link building which houses the mezzanine viewing area, changing rooms, and a practice court, to start to take shape in early May. The Link building provides the connection between the current courts and the new three court expansion. For more information on this project, including regular updates, please visit www.dnv.org/gctennis.
