UPDATED POOL GUIDANCE

  • Please respect the comfort and ability for anyone to swim freely in the pool by limiting the number of floatation devices.
  • Allow space for lap swimming.
  • For pool gatherings and parties, Homeowners must provide a certified lifeguard for all pool gatherings/parties with 15 or more children.
  • A CPR certified lifeguard can be accessed via the La Canada Facebook Parents/Sitters blog, YMCA, YWCA or the community pages.
  • For gatherings where a lifeguard is not present, each parent or guardian shall remain vigilant and in close proximity to each child at all times.
  • Following the gatherings, please remove trash and the clean the area, including the removal of chalk marks on the sidewalks.

MESA FACILITIES

All Starlight Mesa community facilities are now open to residents, and guests when accompanied by residents, and open for reservations

Our swimming pool is open for routine use with no stated Covid capacity limit so long as non-fully vaccinated and non-family users maintain 6 ft distance.  

Please note: All residents are responsible that their guests comply with the above guidance.

Also, please be vigilant and proactive regarding trespassers.  We have noticed an increase in non-residents using the pool and basketball court.  Please ask all trespassers to leave the facilities and/or call the Sheriff.


Procedure for Reserving a Mesa Facility

If you wish to invite more than six non-Mesa guests to the pool/tennis court/putting green areas, you must complete this application and send it, along with a refundable check for $50 payable to “Starlight Mesa HOA”, to the SMHOA Secretary, Cynthia Smither.   Please see the Recreation Area Reservations Calendar (see below) to find out if there is a party already scheduled for that date/time, as there may be only one private party at the same time.

Please note that this reservation does not give exclusive use of these areas, which remain available to all Starlight Mesa residents and their guests.

It is a L.A. County law that children under 14 years of age in the pool in the pool enclosure must be accompanied by an adult 18 years or older.   Please comply with the posted pool rules, especially regarding not using glass containers, and that all non-Mesa guests must be accompanied by an adult homeowner at all times.  Food may be served on the tables, if care is taken that no items are left near the pool’s edge.

Your deposit check will be returned upon a favorable inspection by a Mesa Board member, if the following guidelines were followed:
*   The reserved area is left in clean condition
*   All personal items are taken with you at the conclusion of the event
*   All trash is removed to your home.  If you wish to use the Mesa trash cans, you must carry the black bags out, and replace them with clean, 33-gal. size bags that lap over the sides of the trash can.
*    Close the pool area umbrellas and restore the deck furniture to its original positions.

Your deposit is forfeited if the common area or pool area is not left appropriately cleaned.


Watch out for wild-wildlife in the Mesa

There have been recent Bobcat and Bear sightings along with the ever-present Coyotes.


DOG WALKING

When walking your dog in the Mesa, please keep your dog on-leash, and PLEASE pick up after your dog.

  Waste pickup bags are provided by the Homeowners’ Association in dispensers in the Children’s Play Park and near the swimming pool.


SECURITY GUIDELINES

Do not leave valuables in your car if it is parked on the street or in your driveway.
