Spring is here, and with it comes spring cleaning! The parking lot and parkade are scheduled to be cleaned over the next three weeks, getting rid of all that gravel and dirt from the winter.
Move your vehicles!
No vehicles can be parked at Village on the Park on these dates and times:
Outdoor parking lot
Thursday, April 30th from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Thursday, May 14th from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Our parking enforcement, Multi-Family Parking Solutions, will tow any remaining vehicles and bill the owner of the parking space.
These dates and times were chosen so cleaning will be performed when people are least likely to be home. If you will be home, consider parking your vehicle on the street to avoid a hefty fine.
Please contact property management with questions or concerns.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

One of the most frustrating things about shared living can be struggling to find answers to simple questions. For example, people might ask where they're allowed to store their bicycles (answer: not your balcony) and whether or not they can use the lounge without telling us first (yes! Just make sure to book a rental for private functions).
That's why we came up with the new Residents' Handbook! It quickly answers to the day-to-day questions you have about living at Village on the Park and lets you get back to whatever you were doing.
While the Residents' Handbook can help you understand how our bylaws apply in real situations, the final word is always our VoP Condominium Bylaws. If you need to make sure, spend a few extra minutes to read through the bylaws or contact Progressive Property Management for more info.
Of course, by visiting us online, you're already ahead of the game. But just to make sure, we've also distributed a copy right to your door. See you at home!

“It’s my balcony, isn’t it?”
Although you are entitled to the exclusive use of your balcony or patio deck, these areas are not part of your condominium unit. Balconies and patio decks are assigned to owners for their exclusive use but are, in fact, part of the Common Property owned by the Condominium Corporation. It is the unit owner’s responsibility to keep the balcony and/or patio deck neat and clean.
The Condominium Corporation’s bylaws tell us that owners are not allowed to display signs, advertising or notices without the prior consent of the Board—that includes any signs on balconies or patios.
It is not permissible to hang laundry outside of condominium units.
Combustible or inflammable materials may not be stored inside the unit or on balconies or decks. Residents are permitted to use only BBQs fueled by natural gas supplied directly to the existing valve on each individual balcony or deck.
It is not permitted to leave garbage, recyclables, vehicle tires or any items on a balcony or deck other than a natural gas BBQ and typical outdoor furniture. Lattice fence sections may not be attached to the existing wrought-iron railings.
To sum up: your balcony or deck is not a storage area. The space is intended for the exclusive use of the assigned owner, to be enjoyed in compliance with all of the condominium bylaws.
