Warm weather is finally here!
The time for a warm weather cleaning is here! A neat and clean balcony is a must, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be empty. So, what can you store on your balcony or use to decorate it?
- Seating: Up to four weather-resistant, single-sized, traditional outdoor seats in good repair and up to two patio tables (two end tables or one bistro and one end table.) No indoor furniture is allowed.
- Plants: Only healthy, live plants not more than 3.5ft tall from base of floor to top of plant. Plants shall be well-maintained. Foliage shall be completely contained within boundaries of patio/balcony floor.
- Planters, Flower Boxes & Single Plant Stands: Plants can not exceed 10% of floor surface area and must have saucers/protectors under them to contain water that could damage the floor or run off onto other areas. Plants must be secured against effects of adverse weather conditions, be emptied when plant foliage has gone by, and be removed from balcony/patio after growing season or placed against the exterior wall of the building and secured. This is to prevent any weather-related accidents.
- Floor covering: Outdoor area rugs must be contained within the floor space of the balcony/patio.
Beach and pool season is here (at last!), but hanging clothes or towels from your balcony railing is not permitted.
Community matters when living in a building like Eastwood Commons II and being considerate of your neighbors is key.
- Pets: Dog owners should make sure to clean up after their pets and use the recreational areas for exercise and play – not grass or mulched areas.
- Noise: Make sure to follow quiet hour rules. Noise levels should be kept at a respectful level at all times – you and your neighbors have a right to a peaceful environment. Sound from TVs, musical instruments, etc. carries through walls and floors.
- Smoking: Smoking is not permitted in any common area. Smoking in your unit is allowed but can can travel to your neighbor. Run your vent fan on high to mitigate this and use an air purifier if necessary.
- Maintenance: Report any needed repairs of common area items or maintenance issues to Full Circle Property Management by using the maintenance request form .
Informed use of the parking garage keeps it accessible and safe for all residents.
- Safety: To prevent accidents, make sure you turn on your headlights and slow down while navigating the parking garage.
- Parking: Underground parking spots should be used as your primary parking spot if you are assigned one.
- Storage: Make sure to securely lock your storage cage. As an additional safety measure, many residents use tarps to conceal the contents of their storage cage. Keep your valuables in your unit or another location. Consider storing your bike in the new bike room – reach out to [email protected] for more information!
Fitness Room and Trash House
Save energy while you get some exercise and learn the ins and outs of separating your trash.
- Fitness room: If you change the temperature in the fitness room, make sure to run schedule on the thermostat to save energy and reduce costs – no need to air-condition an empty room. If you open the windows for some fresh air instead, make sure to close and lock them before you leave.
- Trash house: All residents are expected follow Vermont’s waste management guidelines, which can be found here . Boxes must be broken down before recycling. Furniture, appliances, restricted waste like paint or batteries, and other large household items cannot be disposed of in the trash house. Residents will need to bring these items to a local drop-off center.
