Members!! Due to members violating the rules we have had several suspensions of park privileges. I am posting these not to embarrass anyone but for members to pay attention to the rules.
The board and myself do not enjoy giving suspensions so please follow the rules.
1) a member was given a 30 day suspension for allowing their son to have access to the park without the member present at the park.
2) pending suspension for a member who was at the park and left their guests with member's key fob inside the park. The member had no intention of returning.
3) pending suspension for a member giving key fob to daughter. The daughter is not a member and brought 14 guests(total with member then would have been 16).
Member arrived approximately 4 hours after the daughter and her guests arrived.
When you signed for the key fob you accepted the rules and signed that you understood the rules.
Rules posted on this page feel free to read them.
James Anderson Memorial Park was conceived with the SAPD Officers and their families in mind.
The Park is for EXCLUSIVE use of the BENEVOLENT FUND MEMBERS AND THEIR GUESTS.
In order to preserve this concept, the BOARD of DIRECTORS passed the following rules. The intent of the rules is to enhance the availability of the park to more members and to provide a safer, more enjoyable environment.
ALL members are to enforce, as well as, abide by all Park Rules. Violations of these rules may result in the member having their Park privileges suspended. Suspensions are determined by the Board of Directors. Members facing a suspension will be afforded the opportunity to address the Board. The Boards’ decision is final.
