Pets (OTOI Form)

If you have an animal in the Community and have not registered it with Management, please fill out the OTOI form and the Pet Registration form that can be found on your Resident Portal.  Owners must obtain this information from their renters.  It is imperative Management has this information, as this is a requirement by the CC&Rs.  Please submit your form to prevent a violation.

Shopping Carts

The Association has shopping carts located in the garage near the elevator for the resident’s convenience, when a resident is finished with the shopping cart please return the cart to the garage near the elevator.

Proper Use of Garbage Disposals

The use of a garbage disposal in a stacked units is much different than a single-story home.  Please throw away your food into the garbage.  By putting foods down the disposal (rice, pastas, eggshells, etc.) the chance of a backup in your unit or the one below you increase resulting in costly damage paid by all owners via monthly assessments and can affect next year’s budget.
