Dog Barking Reminder

While we are a dog-friendly building, as a reminder, residents are entitled to quiet enjoyment of their units.  Please take the necessary measures to limit barking when in the unit and in common areas.  Barking can be considered a nuisance, which is a violation of the governing documents.  Work with our furry companions to make Columbia Place an enjoyable living space for all! 

Bulk Items Left at the Trash Room

Please arrange with Management if you have large items to be disposed of.  As you are aware, the trash rooms are not large and items piling up could cause a fire hazard.  If you are able to break down such items, please do so.
