Greetings from the Board

192 Board Members
Barry, Judy & Hildy

We are getting there! The new Rules and Regulations will be available soon so hunt up your old binder so we can exchange the documents. (If you don’t have a binder you will be provided with one.) Just a reminder that safety regulations require a height of 42 inches from balcony floor to top of rail. Watch for a notice from our Property Manager Dan regarding this issue. Renting out one’s unit is an acceptable practice but please refer to the guidelines in the Rules and Regulations respecting tenancies if you wish to do this (Article V in the old manual; it will be Article 6 in the new one.)

We are considering switching to LED lighting in common areas to save on our electricity bill. A trial in parts of the garage and on the 11th floor will be occurring soon. Be sure to visit these 2 places and let us know if you like the new lights. A substantial savings is predicted.

Our hot tub room is officially closed and our Decor Committee are wearing their thinking caps as they determine the repurposing of the various rooms on the ground floor level. More to come.

A new Reserve Fund Study will be taking place soon. It is required by all condominiums every 3 years. It helps us make plans to keep our home safe and efficient. The elevator replacement project is expected to begin in early 2015.

Till next time,
Barry, Hildy and Judy

The Sign of More to Come

As you may have heard via the electronic grapevine – or maybe you noticed this while walking around the area, but here’s a sign of what’s to come. Expect to hear news about efforts in 192 Jarvis to organize a response to the development proposal.
