  3. Cover your air conditioners
    1. If you are missing a cover, please contact management
  4. Drive slow in parking lots to avoid accidents
  5. Underground parking: Make sure garage door is fully open before entering, the pavement may be slippery and you could slide into the garage door
  6. Shovel your balcony
  7. Check the batteries in your smoke detector
  8. Call your landlord or property manager immediately if you suspect a pipe has frozen for further instructions.

Parking Lot Snow Removal:

After a big snow storm, there are typically questions regarding when the lots will be cleared.

  1. 24 hours after the end of snowfall, the drive lanes will be cleared
  2. 48 hours after the end of snowfall, the detail work is done such as sidewalks and between garages
  3. Resident Managers put ice melt down and are responsible for shoveling doorways at the buildings
