Fallsmead Fourth of July
June 11, 2021
The Social Committee and the Fallsmead Sharks swim team are busy planning our annual community July 4th event! We are still finalizing all the details, and additional updates will be provided within the next few weeks. We are 'hoping' to have our traditional parade down Fallsmead Way, and are planning to have food available to purchase in the pool parking lot as in previous years. We will not be requesting food donations this year, and will be offering pre-packaged food options alongside our usual hamburgers, hot dogs, and drinks! We will have a DJ at the pool and plan to have activities and games for the kids. We need volunteers to help make this a success! Please take a look at the SignUpGenius
and see how you can help. Email email@example.com
with any questions.
: For the parade to happen, we need people to volunteer to supervise the intersections (listed in the SignUpGenius separately). Intersections should be closed at 11:45am and remain closed until 12:15pm or when the parade is over, whichever is later. Cars that need to drive through one of these intersections can do so with caution, but when the parade starts, we are asking the barricade supervisors not to let cars drive through. Barricades should be dropped off by the police before the event. Any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org

Tennis Court Reservation Process Change
March 21, 2021
The Reservations page
for the Fallsmead tennis courts was changed so that reservations can only be made when you are logged into the Fallsmead.org website as a resident. This was done to prevent non-residents from reserving the Fallsmead courts. The process is the same otherwise, and you will be sent the gate combination via email when you make your reservation. A reminder that you must register for each use of the courts
, and the combination will be changed frequently.
If you find that you no longer need a reservation that you made, please log on and delete your reservation so that the courts will be available for other Fallsmead residents. To do this when logged in, go to the Reservations page
and click “My Reservations” on the upper right side and then click “delete” next to the reservation you no longer need.
Please contact the Racket Sports Committee via the Contact Us page
if you have any questions.
Trucks in Fallsmead
January 21, 2021
The Board of Directors adopted in December 2020 a new "Overnight Garaging of Trucks & Commercial Vehicles Rule & Regulation" regarding the interpretation of Article VII, Section 4 of the Covenants that address overnight parking of commercial vehicles and trucks to define the terms “commercial vehicles” and “trucks” as used in the Covenants.
Under the new Rule and Regulation, the following vehicles are required to be garaged overnight:
- Commercial vehicles;
- Vehicles with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) rating of 8,500 pounds or greater; and
- Any vehicle with a GVW rating under 8,500 pounds with an exposed flat/cargo bed, and/or physical divider between the passenger cab area and the other portion of the vehicle, unless the flat/cargo bed is covered with a fitted and intact covering, such as a tonneau cover or cap no higher than the cab, provided the covering is used to cover the flat/cargo bed overnight, or the flat/cargo bed is kept empty overnight.
Trucks as defined in the new Rule and Regulation with a GVW under 8,500 do NOT have to be garaged overnight if they have a cover over their cargo bed or their truck bed is empty.
