Pool currently closed, planning to open partially for this year. COVID Restrictions demand HOA's to limit pool capacities, we have too few volunteers to monitor our pool capacity 24/7. Cannot open if state refuses our proposal to use cameras as a substitute for monitoring. Another new requirement this year is an inspection from the Fire Marshal to determine COVID capacities on an individual basis, in addition to scheduling a visit from the regular State Pool Inspector. On mid-April our pool contractors have alerted the HOA of a Chlorine Shortage. On May 6th our pool chemical supplier alerted the HOA of troubles with their Chlorine chemical distributor. We cannot allow swimmers in a pool lacking vital cleaning chemicals. Official State COVID Capacity Restrictions for HOA's. Chlorine Shortage News Article.
If you or your tenant are interested in using the HOA pool this year 2021, we NEED to know. Contractors are warning us of price spikes, we're facing new regulations, new requirements, changing COVID rules, and as of May 1st only 15 people showed up for the keycard distribution meeting! By this time before COVID years we normally give over 100 keycards out by now, an 80% decrease in pool interest. The HOA board needs to make some tough economical decisions about the huge expenses our pool creates! Contact us.
Estimate for reopening state is July 30th. Dependent on vaccination percentage, a goal of 60%, where Otero County is currently at 27% as of May 5th. Numbers from Alamogordo Daily News.

We are a medium-sized HOA located in THE closest neighborhood to Holloman Air Force Base.

Streets named Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Enterprise, and Lindberg connecting to Airport Road are mandatory DVHA HOA members.

If you made any payments last year in 2020, you will not be subject to late fees until May 1st 2021.
Please see pool updates at the top of this homepage. Pool opening seems unlikely this year due to numerous issues related to COVID laws or COVID economic aftereffects, but we are still providing pool-access keycards in case we do open. The HOA board highly desires residents to accept keycards if they have any interest in using the pool this year 2021. We need to make the difficult decision if it is wise for us to spend so much money on the pool again when very few people are using it.
