The Sandburg Village Condominium Homeowners Association Board, Fitness Formula Club and the HOA Management team believe strongly that safety comes first and much consideration has gone into the final decision about the opening of the village pools and tennis center/courts during these unprecedented times.

While we know that some residents will not agree with our approach, we must always consider what is generally best for the entire community.  With that being said; at the HOA board meeting on 6/24/20, the Board decided to keep the pools and tennis center/courts closed for the 2020 season based on the opinions from HOA legal counsel and insurance, the HOA Board’s fiduciary duty of fiscal responsibility and the City of Chicago phasing plans.

We thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing everyone in summer 2021. 

Our Village residents enjoy the convenient location of our Village property in relation to the city, and also have the availability of on-site amenities and facilities.
