Fireworks Prohibited in Blue Mountain Lake
Attention all Blue Mountain Lake Residents
Pennsylvania House Bill 542, relating to fireworks, was signed into law on October 30, 2017. Under the new law, the Fireworks Act of 1939 was repealed and replaced in its entirety. The complete version of the new law can be viewed here.
Although this was signed into law, fireworks cannot be ignited or discharged on public or private property without express permission of the property owner. This means that fireworks are not permitted in Blue Mountain Lake as our Rules and Regulations clearly state fireworks are prohibited. Use of fireworks will result in a citation being issued and a $300.00 fine assessed to your account.
In addition to the Blue Mountain Lake Club Rules and Regulations, the law states that fireworks:
1. Cannot be discharged from or within a motor vehicle or building;
2. Cannot be discharged toward a motor vehicle or building;
3. Cannot be discharged within 150 feet of an occupied structure;
4. Cannot be discharged while the person is under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance, or another drug.
