As fall approaches, now is the time to start working on your lawns. Please see the attached lawn care guide, which has tips and advice for both cool season (tall fescue) and warm season (Bermuda) grasses.

At minimum, core aeration, topdressing (with starter fertilizer) and overseeding are great steps to take this time of year for a healthy lawn come spring!

Happy selling and buying!

What is “SAYOR”

SAYOR is short for “Swim at your own risk”.

Each pool season, the pool opens a couple weeks before school lets out, and stays open for a couple of weeks after school starts in the fall.

Historically, the pool has been closed during the day and only open when lifeguards are present, beginning at 4pm (remember, the lifeguards are students). This year, the Board decided to allow residents to use the pool during the day without a lifeguard present, i.e. “SAYOR”.

There is a form on the Community Documents page that will need to be signed for the fall and future seasons, but all residents’ fobs were activated for the start of this season.

FWIW, the pool and clubhouse are Internet equipped…so if you need a break from the home ‘office’, you should be able to get some work done by the pool.

Weddington Ridge Pool Season Update

As you may be aware, Governor Roy Cooper enacted an Executive Order on May 20, 2020 moving North Carolina into Phase 2 of reopening which included allowing public pools to open with certain restrictions. The Weddington Ridge community pool will be opening on May 30th, subject to the restrictions and guidelines outlined below. We need the cooperation of EVERY ONE OF YOU to adhere to these restrictions to ensure the pool can remain open during current Phase (expected to last at least through June 26th).

• Pool area entry capacity is limited to 52 people with 26 people allowed in the water at a time
• Entry and Waitlist Process:
o Pool entry will be first come-first served
o All residents must sign in when entering/exiting the pool area, notating their entry/exit time
o In an effort to allow all residents to enjoy the pool, a waitlist strategy is being implemented. All households will be guaranteed a minimum stay of 2-hours.
o If there is a waitlist for entry (households will be asked to wait outside the pool gate) or if at the hourly count there are more than 52 people in the pool area or 26 people in the water, the household(s) that has been at the pool the longest (after their minimum stay has been met) will be asked to leave the pool area first and in a timely manner
o If there are households waiting at the entrance, exit only through the back gate near the showers
• The pool will be open daily from 9-10AM ONLY for vulnerable populations (65+, immune compromised, etc.). If you need pool access during this time of day, please email weddingtonridgeboard@gmail.com ASAP
• No toys (except safety floats) will be allowed in the pool area. Lost items will be discarded at the end of the day
• No guests or pool parties will be allowed
• Allow AquaTech employees the space they need to periodically clean all high touch-point area as required
• Wipe down your lounge chairs and tables before and after use. Bring your own disinfectant
• Maintain appropriate social distancing (i.e. stay at least 6 feet from other people & do not gather in groups outside of your immediate household)
• Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer
• Cloth face coverings are strongly encouraged when entering and exiting the pool area and when not in the pool or visiting the restrooms
• Do NOT enter the pool area if you are symptomatic with COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.), have been in contact with a person diagnosed or is presumed positive with COVID-19, or have traveled out of the country in the past 2 weeks

By entering the Weddington Ridge pool, you are agreeing to abide by the above restrictions & guidelines and that the facilities are open to use AT YOUR OWN RISK (neither the HOA nor AquaTech can be responsible for preventing the spread of germs throughout the facility, including SARS-COV-2). If any resident is determined to be in violation of these restrictions by AquaTech or the Board, your pool access will be revoked for period of at least 2 weeks. As pool season progresses, these procedures will be evaluated and are subject to change.

May 30-July 30: 9AM-9PM*, August 1-August 30: 9AM-8PM*, August 31-September 4: 4PM-8PM**,
September 5-7, 12-13 & 19-20: 9AM-8PM**
[*9AM-10AM open ONLY for vulnerable populations until further notice, **Swim At Your Own Risk access available during the week when pool is unguarded if authorization form is submitted to pool@mycmg.com]

STILL NEED A KEY FOB? Email pool@mycmg.com or visit http://weddingtonridgehoa.com/pool (no entry allowed without a FOB and lifeguards cannot assist).

With everyone’s understanding & cooperation, we are looking forward to a safe 2020 pool season!

Weddington Ridge Update on the 2020 Pool Season

Please be advised that the Weddington Ridge pool will NOT be opening for the season as scheduled on May 16, 2020. We are hopeful that pools in North Carolina will be allowed to re-open in Phase 2, however, Aquatech has not yet received any guidance from the Board of Health detailing when or if pools will be allowed to open this summer. Ultimately, we will be following all state, local and CDC guidelines to determine when/if the pool can be opened and if social distancing measures (such as capacity limits) need to be enacted.

In the meantime, Aquatech is maintaining the pool properly so, if the green light is given, it can be opened quickly. Please also ensure you have a pool FOB for access (lifeguards do NOT have these to distribute, please email pool@mycmg.com or visit http://weddingtonridgehoa.com/pool/) and your 2020 Unescorted Minor and Swim at Your Own Risk forms are completed and sent to pool@mycmg.com (these forms will also be available by the end of the week on MyCMG and the Community Documents page of the HOA website).

Once you finish please complete the document below; Include the unscrambled word, your address and how many children you have. Prize bags will be geared to children under 12 but everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate! Prize bags will be delivered to porches on Sunday, April 12th.

Happy Hunting!!

Covid-19 and Our Community

The Board of Directors will be postponing violation hearings until after the COVID-19 pandemic has ended and stay-at-home orders are lifted.
In addition, there will be leniency on violations. The Board asks in return that those violations that can be remedied easily, i.e. lawns mowed, weeds cleared, dead shrubs removed, mildew on siding, missing mailbox numbers, garbage cans in view of the road, improperly stored items, etc., still be addressed. Please just do your best in maintaining your property to the standards detailed in the Rules & Regulations/ARC Guidelines and try not to worry about anything that would require a 3rd-party or contractor to fix.
*This does not mean that your HOA dues are deferred. They should be paid on time, as we still have work and upkeep being done in our community.
**This also does not mean that inspections will be postponed or that violation notices won’t be sent. We are continuing with “business as usual” with the understanding that the Board is giving you more time to remedy any violations, and some violations, unfortunately, will not be able to be remedied for a while. Please be sure to always email violations@mycmg.com with photos if you have remedied your violation in order to clear them from your file.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email weddingtonridgeboard@gmail.com and all community documents can be found in the navigation pane on the left.
We hope you all stay safe and continue to make Weddington Ridge a great place to live!

NC Stay-at-Home Order


In addition to the Mecklenburg County Stay at Home Order, Governor Roy Cooper ordered people in the state of North Carolina to stay at home for thirty days, until April 29, 2020, in another step to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Governor Cooper’s Executive Order No. 121 takes effect on Monday, March 30 at 5:00 PM and reduces the size of gatherings to 10 people. The Order provides for essential businesses to continue to operate while prioritizing social distancing measures. The Order has the force of law and will be enforced in all 100 counties statewide.

The Order in its entirety can be found here.

Some key points for our community:

  • Social gatherings limited to 10 people
  • Essential businesses will continue to operate (travel only for essential household needs)
  • Local parks will remain open for greenways and trails, but maintain a 6 foot ‘social distance’

Please stay safe, stay healthy and stay at home.
