• Only residents of Lyon Park and Ashton Heights, as well as commercial businesses and nonprofit organizations located in Lyon Park may subscribe to the list.
• The list manager may verify the eligibility of those posting to it, as required.
• The LPCA Executive Committee may grant others permission to receive list messages at its sole discretion.
• The Executive Committee may also create additional lists to meet specific community requests and/or needs (e.g. development, commercial listings).
• The LPCA assumes no liability for anything posted to the list.
The LPCA operates the list to enhance community communications, and has set the following rules governing participation and content:

Members shall not use the list for any commercial purposes, including but not limited to the solicitation, promotion or sales of products or services, or for events where business advertising or sales take place. All personal or business advertising is prohibited except for the following items, which are permitted exclusively in the "Listings" forum:
• Neighborhood children or young adults offering babysitting, pet sitting, lawn or other similar services.
• Local non-profit and public school events.
• Ticket sales where no profit is incurred.
• Announcements concerning free merchandise (e.g. "curb alerts").
• Personal recommendations for third-party commercial service providers (e.g. plumbers, electricians, daycare) when submitted in response to a direct request and when the poster has no commercial/financial affiliation with the recommended provider.
No posting of political or election campaign material including:
• Links to political websites.
• Quotations of political literature.

Anyone who violates these rules will receive a warning off-line.
