Dear Mister Condo,
Some people want music at pool others don’t. How do I settle this problem?
Mister Condo replies:
S.H., in these days of personal music as close as your cell phone and a pair of earphones, I would think that keeping the association out of the music business would be the wisest choice. That being said, if the association doesn’t take a stand on music being played at the association pool, the association runs the risk of individuals deciding to play their own choice of music on their own speakers poolside, possibly disturbing the unit owners who would prefer not to have music blaring at the pool. My personal recommendation would be to disallow any music played aloud at the pool but encourage folks to use personal music devices with headphones so they can enjoy whatever music they would like privately. Additionally, if the association approves such a rule, I would post signage poolside to help enforce the rule. All the best!
