Update on Pool Opening 2020
Letter from the President
After careful consideration and calculated deliberation, the Loch Braemar Board of Directors unanimously voted to NOT open the Loch Braemar pool for the 2020 pool season.  There are many reasons the pool remaining closed in 2020 is the best decision for the pool, and the welfare and safety of the Loch Braemar Community.
1. The 2019 novel corona virus spread and available guidance on controlling or managing spread is unknown and unpredictable. Phase 3 guidance for pools and other businesses was made available in mid-June, which makes solidifying opening plans, staffing, membership recruitment, and resource procurement a challenge.
2. There is no room for error in the Loch Braemar pool budget. Loch Braemar pool is funded primarily through memberships and limited donations. Many other community pools are funded through Home Owners Association dues which community members are required to pay by covenant. As such, Loch Braemar must recruit members and does not have a guaranteed income from homeowners of the community as many other associations do.  The Loch Braemar Community Association’s primary responsibility is to ensure the general welfare of the community.  From the LBCA Board perspective, this includes being good stewards of the pool in the long run.  In order to do that, the funds in 2020 must be managed conservatively.
3.  Loch Braemar pool is managed by volunteers. Other community pools hire aquatic management companies to maintain and manage the day to day pool operations.  The cost of this service well exceeds the Loch Braemar operating budget and in many cases these fees are passed on to the pool members and to HOA dues for pools who choose to use
this service.  Being a volunteer run pool works well in most circumstances, but the advanced decontamination measures, social distancing, attendance restrictions, and mask requirements of 2020 exceed what should be asked of volunteers or  staff.
4. A 2020 pool season, in the face of so many challenges, will not be the same as what we remember. What would a summer pool season with face masks, staying six feet apart, monitoring decontamination practices and our neighbors’ symptoms really look like? 
It is my sincere hope that we are simply hitting the pause button on Loch Braemar pool for the 2020 season and all the cherished members, staff, and swim team members will be back in 2021.  Loch Braemar is your pool. You are what makes Loch Braemar pool the best pool around. The LBCA wants to make sure the pool is here for you and your family for many years to come- exactly how you remember it.  Maybe even a little better than you remember it.

Sincerely,
Stephanie Dela Cruz, LBCA President

Pool Deck News


Who can’t wait for May? 🙋‍♂️🙋

A HUGE thank you 🙏 to all those who live in Loch Braemar and those who are associate pool members who love the pool. LBCA appreciates 🥰the volunteers who came out today to get deck demolition done ✅.

It continues to be an inspiration to see what a motivated and caring team can accomplish in a few hours on a chilly 🥶 afternoon.

Next step: prep the site before the new concrete deck.

Good Progress- see more pictures of Demolition Day in the Gallery
