Pool Wi-Fi and Web Cam
Image: Pool Wi-Fi and Web Cam Over the winter the board agreed to make Wi-Fi available to residents at both pools.  Since the pools already have internet for the security and card reader systems, there is no extra ongoing cost for this.  Wi-Fi is now available at the front pool and will be available at the back pool soon. The Wi-Fi will only be on during the hours the pool is open and the password will change periodically (about once a week).  To get the current password, visit: (resident login required).  It will be the same Wi-Fi name and password at both pools.  Please do not share this password with non-residents.


The board also agreed to add an additional camera at the front pool that is digital, higher definition and capable of being viewed on a website. The new camera has been installed and is now available for residents to view on the website.  To view the camera, visit: (resident login required).  Due to bandwidth constraints, for now what’s available on the website is just a still that will be updated when you refresh the page.

News Regarding Front Pool Opening
Image: News Regarding Front Pool Opening

We have good news to share regarding the Hempsteade Front Pool !  Vertex Professional Group has worked to secure 2 lifeguards to monitor the Front Pool while we are disputing the Health Department's ruling.  As a result, this means the Front Pool will open tomorrow, Friday, June 16th at 9 a.m. The pool hours for the duration the season will be 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. At this time while we are disputing the Health Department's ruling, the Front Pool can only be open if lifeguards are onsite. If for any reason the pool has to close suddenly, we will send out email communication to the whole community immediately alerting them of the news. Please also note, that we will enforce an "adult swim only" the last ten minutes of every hour to allow a break for our guards.  Thank you for your cooperation regarding this rule. Again, the Front Pool is set to open tomorrow, Friday, June 16th at 9am!

There has been some questions about how the Mt. Zion road widening project will affect Hempsteade (the front pool, ponds, etc).  This page on the website (resident login required) has some high resolution detailed blueprints of the plans as well as some links to interactive maps, project status, tentative timelines, etc.   Please take a look and hopefully it will help answer some of your questions.

The board has decided to allow a few sponsors for the website to help offset some of the expenses.  If you or someone you know may be interested in sponsoring the website, please contact the HOA by filling out the form here.  Sponsoring the site would likely mean having a banner ad on one or more pages and/or having sponsored announcements.   The HOA website is one of the first places a perspective homeowner would go get information about moving into the neighborhood and we’ve had some interest from realtors and the like.

Do Not Feed Geese
Image: Do Not Feed Geese Residents of Hempsteade,

Please refrain from feeding the geese around the community. This may seem like a fun activity to do, and you may feel like you are helping the geese, but there are many cons to doing so.

  • A young gosling's diet will determine his taste preferences as he grows up, if he's spoiled on purchased feed or particularly lush grass while young, he'll probably refuse the nastier weeds as an adult.
  • Feeding geese near your unit can cause them to rely on coming around your unit for food source. They are very noisy and can make a big mess while they are there.
  • Geese like all animals can become aggressive.
  • They are insatiable curious and they nibble on everything; including bike seats, patio furniture, and other belongings, which is not only a nuisance, but dangerous to their health.
