Clover Hill Pool Update


COVID-19 has affected all of our lives in various ways and the Clover Hill Pool is no different.  I'm sure that it comes as no surprise that the opening of the pool, originally scheduled for this Friday, May 22nd, has been postponed.  The Board, pool committee, community manager and pool management company are all working together closely to monitor the current federal, state & local guidelines pertaining to public swimming facilities.  At this time, we still have no clear answers about if or when we will be given the option to open.  Plans are being developed for either scenario – opening at some point for the 2020 pool season or remaining closed.  When considering plans to open, rest assured that the safety and health of our community will be top priority.  Capacity, cleanliness and social distancing guidelines are among many challenges that will be part of the decision making process.  We will send more information as it becomes available.

Clover Hill COVID-19 Needs & Relief Survey

Hello Clover Hill Neighbors,
 
The impact of COVID-19 has motivated many to take action and the Clover Hill community is no different! A small group of neighbors have been meeting online to develop a way to connect community volunteers with those older and at risk residents who may need extra assistance now and beyond. 
 
All of us have skills, talents and the desire to help our fellow neighbors.  As someone once said, “ We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”  Our Clover Hill community wants to help!   
 
At times it can be hard to ask for support and equally difficult to tell people what you need, share your concerns, or just be comforted; but these are strange and confusing times. It’s important that we stay connected and remain aware of neighbors who may require help getting groceries, medications or other needs.  We need you!
 
If you are interested in volunteering or if you could use a little help, please take 3 minutes to complete this quick survey so that we can match volunteers with neighbors who could use help with getting groceries, finding masks, or even providing some physically distanced smiles, songs, or conversation. Please return the survey as soon as possible so that our ad hoc committee can organize the volunteers and need quickly.
 
https://forms.gle/BYbcZK55czgDBT4v7
 
Our neighborhood is large and there are many people who are not on Facebook or the internet, so if you know of anyone who may not be able to complete the survey please assist them by either printing it out and putting it in their mailbox or by doing it online for them (physically distanced and with their permission of course). Paper surveys can be dropped off at the Clover Hill Clubhouse in the metal mailbox at the front steps.
 
It is so inspiring to see how many neighbors are already helping each other and the larger Frederick community. We hope this effort will help strengthen our neighborhood and provide hope during this difficult time.
 
We look forward to connecting with you soon. Thank you so much for your kindness.
 
COVID-19 Ad Hoc Committee: John and Shannan Thorhauer, Carolyn McCarthy, Gwen Austen, Kelly Ehrhart, and Beth Flowers

FAQ's Related to the Clover Hill Park

 

Is the Clover Hill Park owned by Frederick County?

No, the Clover Hill Park is a private park owned and maintained by the members of the Clover Hill Civic Association (CHCA).  Interestingly, the Clover Hill neighborhood has around 1,100 homes and only 685 homes are paid members of the CHCA.  If you aren’t a CHCA member, won’t you consider joining today and contribute to the annual maintenance fund for this common space?  For more information and to join, email the Clover Hill Manager:  manager@cloverhill.org

 

How much does it cost the CHCA to maintain such a large park?

The Clover Hill Park is quite large and very beautiful! The park is 13 acres and the 2020 approved budget is $32,000.   The park boasts 13 acres of beautiful flowering trees and includes a pavilion, playground, walking paths, two baseball fields, one softball field, a basketball court and space for soccer, lacrosse, and open recreation. 

 

Is the Clover Hill Park open or closed because of coronavirus (COVID-19)?

The Clover Hill Park is open, except for the pavilion and playground equipment.  Individuals using the open sections of the park should follow the Governor’s Executive Order on mass gatherings and social distancing which states, “Social, community, spiritual, religious, recreational, and sporting gatherings and events (“large gatherings and events”) of more than 10 people are hereby prohibited at all locations and venues, including but not limited to parades, festivals, conventions and fundraisers.”  https://governor.maryland.gov/marylandunites/

 

According to the National Park and Recreation Association, “many parks, trails and open spaces can continue to be used in a safe manner that allows people to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits these spaces provide. In all instances, we recommend people follow local, state and national ordinances and guidelines regarding the use of these spaces and recognize that these vary from community to community.

 

As stated on the Frederick County Parks and Recreation website, “In any park or any public space, a good portion of your safety relies on you.  A public area is only as clean as the last person who touched it.  The Frederick County Health Department has a web page devoted to COVID-19 updates and resources, including videos on good hygiene measures to protect yourself.” 

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds at a time.
  • Avoid touching your face. Clean surfaces you touch regularly.

  • If you’re sick with any ailment, stay home. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • When in public, maintain a social distance of at least six feet.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it away. If you don’t have a tissue, use your elbow.

March 21, 2020

In following suit with Frederick County Parks & Rec, due to concerns with COVID-19, we ask that all park visitors refrain from using the playground equipment until further notice.  We also ask that you observe CDC's minimum recommended social distancing of 6' from other persons at all times.

March 15, 2020

We understand many residents are concerned with the current COVID-19 outbreak worldwide.

At this time the Clover Hill clubhouse will be closed to community activities and rentals indefinitely, until the state of emergency in the state of Maryland is lifted.

We will assess and make announcements moving forward regarding the operating status of the clubhouse.

This cancellation includes yoga, Zumba, quilting, scouts and any other group usage or rental of the clubhouse.

This was not an easy decision to make, but as a community space, we feel we have the responsibility to do our part to maintain public safety and limit the risk of exposure to our residents.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
