Here are some simple guidelines to help us live together respectfully and comfortably as we share the common areas such as hallways, elevators, recreation rooms, and landscaped areas. Refer to the condominium bylaws for more information.
- Keep noise levels down in the hallways.
Hallways are not meant for stomping around, playing games or lengthy chats. Hallways lead us from “here” to “there”. Just on the other side of a door, babies may be sleeping, students may be studying, families may be chatting – and they are entitled to a tranquil setting for these activities.
- Use the elevator efficiently.
Press the call button, enter the elevator, choose your destination floor, and exit on arrival. Children should not travel in the elevator unattended. Preventing the elevator doors from closing can lead to elevator shutdown, a repair call and additional costs to the owners. When large cumbersome items are being moved, extra care must be taken to prevent damage to the interior of the elevator cabin and to the hallway walls.
- If you make a mess, clean it up.
The carpets in the common areas make the place more comfortable and attractive. If you spill something, or drag dirt and grime in from outdoors, it’s your responsibility to clean it up. The janitorial crew do ordinary cleaning, but if residents create an extraordinary mess, the residents are responsible to ensure that it’s cleaned up. If the clean-up job needs professional expertise, contact property management for advice.
- Leave the lounge in good condition.
Each building of the complex has a lounge, accessible by key fob. Have you noticed that the lounge is quite similar to a comfy living room? It’s ours to use – and to respect. Before you close the door and turn out the light, please be sure that the lounge is ready for your neighbour to enjoy.
- Keep the fitness room orderly and sanitized.
Each building has a well-equipped fitness room. Residents using their own equipment and personal items in the fitness room must remove their belongings at the end of each session. Use the provided sanitizing cloths to wipe down equipment after each use for the health and safety of those around you.
- Put trash (including pet droppings and cigarette butts) where it belongs.
Household garbage must be placed in the outdoor collector bins. Oversized items must be delivered to an Eco Station or a Big Bin Event. Residents who abandon oversized garbage outside of the collector bins will be billed for disposal costs. Cigarette butts and pet droppings must not be found in any common areas, including balconies, indoors or out.
Thank you for thinking of others and doing your part to keep our common areas clean and accessible for everyone!
