Attractive Nuisance (Trampolines)
Trampolines on urban properties, or rural properties where there is close access from neighboring homes, must be in a yard with permanent fencing. The fence must be at least 4 feet high and the gate must be latched to deter access.
Exceptions to the fencing would be: a trampoline with protective netting OR a trampoline on a rural property where there is little or no access from neighboring homes (even w/out protective netting). If the trampoline does NOT meet the guidelines or for being fenced properly or fall within the exceptions, a major condition should be marked.
Fenced But Gate Is Open
Adequately fenced trampolines should not be marked at all (not even a minor) unless there is a problem due to the condition of the trampoline such as damaged springs, etc.
This Is OK - It Has Safety Netting
Playground structures and swing sets do not fall within the Attractive Nuisance category; do not mark a hazard (not even a minor) for these structures being on the property, even if they are not fenced. There are no minor conditions for this category.
