Kings Forest Pool is Now Key Access; Join Us on Friday Night

Today the Kings Forest pool transitioned to key access, with all required locking devices, pool equipment and signage successfully installed by the Pool Committee and Kings Forest board. The pool will now be available year-round to residents, dawn to dusk, on a swim-at-your-own-risk basis.
Approximately a dozen residents have already obtained their keys. If you’ve not picked yours up yet, come to the Pool Event on Friday evening, July 25, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The new board and committees will be there, so it will be a nice opportunity for neighbors to get together.
The pool committee reviewed four pool service companies and signed a new maintenance contract with a pool service company that has an excellent reputation across the Kingwood /Humble/Atascocita area. Services will include all cleaning and maintenance of the pool, chemicals and supplies, as well as cleaning of the restrooms. The old and outdated chemical monitoring pool equipment is being replaced with an updated version at no additional cost. The Kings Forest board and pool committee are especially pleased that pool overhead and operating costs will be reduced by approximately 60 percent.
This transition was effected by a group of volunteers who have done an excellent job of researching options, overseeing and coordinating existing and prospective contractors, hanging signs, handing out keys, and repairing damage to the pool area. Ginny Eckley, Don Barksdale, Kathy Quinn and Lois Vance deserve special mention for spearheading these efforts.
In developing the maintenance contract with the new pool service company, resident attorneys Amy Slaughter and David Livingston have provided their valued guidance.
Hanna Biasetti and David Bergin have kept a vigilant eye on pool operation days and evenings during this transition. We’re very grateful that David Bergin has made a commitment to monitor for questionable activities in the pool area going forward.
