How can we be better neighbors?

August 2011:  The HOA has received an increasing number of complaints about a “general sense of disrespect for the property.”  Undoubtedly, you too have noticed the symptoms:

  1. Cigarette butts
  2. Animal waste
  3. Random litter – beer cans, wrappers, etc.
  4. Garbage not being placed in the bins (resulting in it being strewn about)

To address these complaints and the underlying issues, the HOA has taken the following actions:

Janitorial service

We are replacing our janitorial service to improve the overall cleanliness and appearance of the property.

a) Please note our Janitorial Service is paid to clean up dust, dirt and natural debris – not pick litter, trash or messes made by residents. All residents are expected to pick up after themselves.

Revisions to the One Cool Blow “Rules and Regulations of the Association”

a) Revised rules on Leasing: Current leasing residents will be impacted in two ways:

i) You will need to schedule your move out, and

ii.) Upon issuance of your third fine your lease will be terminated and you will be evicted by the HOA (under the rules, this is an obligation of the HOA)

b) Grilling rules are now in force

c) Smoking is now allowed on the roof and in between the buildings

d) See all HOA rules here.

Zero tolerance for non-compliance with the HOA “Rules and Regulations of the Association.”

Previously, the board’s process was to issue a formal warning then a fine(s). Going forward, no warnings will be issued and fines will be assessed. Residents should be aware of the current rules and act responsibly.

Specific areas of emphasis are:

  • Pet owners should be certain that their pets are on leashes at all times.
  • Due to the animal waste on the roof, pets are no longer allowed on the rooftop common elements.
  • Cigarette butts are litter, the accumulation of cigarette butts will result in revisions to the smoking rules.
  • The 11 p.m. noise “ordinance” must be adhered to every day of the week.
  • Trash must always be placed inside the trash bins – never on the floor. Do not leave furniture, mattresses, etc. in the trash bin area. We must all be vigilant to pick up after ourselves. Under no circumstances is this too much to ask. 
  • You are responsible for your guest at all times.

Thank you.
