No Fires or Fireworks allowed in Raintree Village Commons Spaces

At the RVHA directors meeting held Monday June 8, 2020, the Raintree Village Homeowners Association board of directors passed a resolution that prohibits any use of fireworks or any fires in or on the Open Space Areas including Forest Commons, Lakeside Commons, Abbey Commons and Village Commons. The reason is the substantial liability risk for personal injury and property damage that the association would be exposed to by permitting such fireworks displays on Raintree Village Commons areas property.

Homeowners are welcome to launch fireworks from their own private properties and take the liability risks upon themselves. Check with your insurance agents to make sure your homeowners insurance policy covers you for any damages or injuries that might arise from such activity.

This document from the City of Troy Fire Department specifically says that fireworks may not be discharged on public property (which includes streets and sidewalks) nor on the property of another without that organization’s or persons’ express permission to use fireworks on those premises. Raintree Village does not permit the discharge of fireworks on any Raintree Village Commons area property.
