Community Standards & Policies

To ensure continuity within each of our communities and comply with all local, federal and state regulations we insist that all Residents be familiar with and to comply with our Community Standards. Everyone has the right to the peaceful enjoyment of their home and a clean environment, and your cooperation with these rules and regulations as set forth below will help to ensure a positive living experience for you and your neighbors. We reserve the right at any time to amend our Policies as deemed necessary or desirable for safety, care, reputation, cleanliness and/or for any other reasonable purpose. Any amendments or exceptions to this contract must be in writing and signed by both parties. No verbal agreements will be honored.

Noise/Disturbance Policy

a) Quiet Hours: Quiet hours (the absence of loud noise or distractions) are in effect every evening, from 10 pm to 7am Sunday through Thursday and Midnight to 8:00 am on Friday and Saturday nights.

 

b) Courtesy Hours: At all other times, residents are expected to exercise good judgment with respect to reasonable noise levels. Noise that intrudes on the privacy and the needs of others to sleep and peaceably enjoy their home may be deemed disruptive if it can be heard through a closed door or window.

 

c) Noise which is disruptive to other residents is prohibited, both inside and outside of homes, and courtesy and consideration for others is expected at all times.

 

d) Residents are expected to respond positively to requests to reduce noise, and to respectfully approach others with requests for noise reduction.
