Parking Policy

We encourage members to walk or bike to the Club.

The Club operates as a special exception (called “conditional use”) under the zoning laws of Montgomery County.  These restrictions are part of the Club’s operating agreement with Montgomery County and violation of them may subject the Club to the risk of severe penalties including cancellation of our right to operate.

Pool members and their guests are not permitted to park on Glen Cove Parkway, Allan Terrace, Baltimore Avenue, and Little Falls Drive in order to use the Club’s facilities (see map below). This parking restriction is in effect at all times when the facility is in use, including during swim and dive meets, playing tennis or attending Club social events. The Club will strictly enforce these restrictions and a member’s violation will result in sanctions in accordance with the enforcement procedures set forth below.

No parking at any time on these streets

Club members and their guests may park in the Westbrook Elementary School parking lot; while school is still in session parking in the Westbrook Elementary School lot by members and their guests is not permitted. Please note that a Member’s guests are bound by this parking policy, and penalties may be imposed on a member whose guest has violated this condition.

Parking on the other streets (not in blue) by Club members in order to use the Club’s facilities is permitted only during the following events and only when the Club’s parking lot and the Westbrook Elementary School parking lot are both full.  Little Falls members must park in the Westbrook Elementary School parking lot during swim and dive meets until that lot is full, leaving the Club’s parking lot for visitors, with two exceptions: (i) Club members whose vehicles display a handicapped tag or license plate may park in the Little Falls lot; and (ii) Club members whose vehicles are needed to transport equipment necessary for swim and dive meets. Only up to five vehicles belonging to Club members may be parked in the Little Falls lot for that purpose.

  1. Swim meets (A and B meets)
  2. Dive Meets
  3. Swim and Dive Team Banquet
  4. Memorial Day, July 4, and Labor Day picnics
  5. Evening dinner socials sponsored by the Club (three times per season)

Parking Enforcement Procedures

License plate numbers: Club members must list the makes and license plate numbers of all of the member’s cars when they pay their annual dues. The Club will compile a list of all members’ cars and identify vehicles that belong to members who live on Baltimore Avenue, Glen Cove Parkway or Allan Terrace within two blocks of the swim club. The Club’s special zoning exception, granted by the County, requires us to collect information about all members’ cars.  

Determination of parking violations:   License plates will be checked during the pool season, at various times each day, (i) on Baltimore Avenue between Glen Cove Parkway and Montgomery Avenue; (ii) on both blocks of Glen Cove Parkway; and (iii) on the portion of Allan Terrace adjacent to and opposite the elementary school playground and playing fields. Checks will be timed in accordance with staff work shifts and break times to ensure that safety is not compromised when a staffer leaves the pool area.

Pool staff will compare the list of license plate numbers to the membership list. If the numbers are on the list of member-reported cars, and are not assigned to a member-household on the three named streets, staff will check the Club sign-in log to see if anyone from the member’s household checked into the pool on that date. Members who are found to have violated the Club’s parking restrictions are subject to the Parking Violation Sanctions listed below.

The Pool Administrator shall maintain a log of license plate checks providing the date, the time and the signature or initials of the person who conducted the check.

Parking Violations Sanctions

1st violation in a season:  Warning letter sent which states the date and time of the suspected violation and consequences for subsequent violations.

2nd violation in a season: 3-day suspension of pool privileges for all licensed drivers of the household.   Notification made by call from Board President.

3rd violation in a season:  2-week suspension of Club privileges for all licensed drivers of the household.   Notification made by letter and call from Board President.

4th violation in a season:  Suspension of Club privileges for the remainder of the season for all members of the household.  Notification made by letter and call from Board President.

Appeals: Any pool member who has been cited for a parking violation may appeal to the Club Board with information showing that there was no violation.  The Board may, by 2/3 majority, vote to expunge the violation notice from the member’s record if it there is a sufficient demonstration that there was no violation.
