FIREWOOD STORAGE
Remember, buy only the amount of firewood you need for one season.  You may store  wood (in a rack) in front of your car if you leave 3' of clearance from the carport wall.

We recommend that residents use bricks or concrete pads under the firewood racks to prevent the rack from settling into the asphalt or deck surfaces.

Firewood is not to be stored:
Under stairs and wooden walkways
In direct contact with carport floors or in direct contact with crib walls or railroad ties
On landings or decks, unless stored in circular racks and the weight of the wood does not exceed 150 pounds (an excessive weight of wood can cause structural damage and/or impede exit from buildings)
At any unit entrance.
Management will remove incorrectly stored firewood.

SMOKE and CARBON MONOXIDE  DETECTORS:
Are required by  N.J. State Law.
One per floor, either hard wired or battery operated. If the device is powered by battery, it is suggested that residents change batteries when they receive the Fall and Spring Bulletins.

FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
Each unit must have at least one fire extinguisher, two or even three is not a bad idea. Home Depot or any local hardware store will have them in stock.

STORAGE
Your assigned storage room is to be used for the storing of any personal belongings.

Areas that are off limits for storage are:

  • Walkways, decks and stairs
  • Meter rooms crawlspaces or attics
  • Carports, except for properly stored firewood.

PLEASE NOTE:
Upper units have the outside parking space and storage room.
Lower units have the inner parking space and storage room.
