This amenity card policy was created and approved by the Board of Directors. This policy has been put into effect to ensure that the facilities built for the paying members of the Master Association are not overused or abused by individuals that are not paying members of the Master Association.

This policy will be effective January 1, 2013. Please feel free to forward your remarks and opinions as to how the system is working.

The staff of the Sapphire Valley Community Center/Amenities Department is only asked to enforce the rules set forth by the Master Association. They are not responsible for creating these rules.

Any violations of these rules and or mistreatment of staff enforcing these rules may result in loss of amenity privileges.
