Snow/Ice Removal

In case of inclement weather, please park your cars at least three feet away from the edge of the sidewalk so that the Service Team will be able to remove any accumulating snow/ice. Our policy for snow removal does not differ from that of the Town of Blacksburg’s; streets, sidewalks and roadways are priority after a heavy snow fall or ice storm. The trails are second priority in this policy as they are not intended to be primary routes for travel. Our team will work on snow/ice removal in the community and begin work on our trail system as soon as they are able in the event of a snow storm. Until that point we ask that you use caution if using the trails, especially in heavily shaded areas. As a general reminder, please stay off the pond. As the ice thickness can vary you are putting yourself at risk if you venture out onto the ice. If you see someone on the ice feel free to advise them to slowly step off of the ice. Your help is appreciated in this matter. If you feel that they are in danger please contact the local emergency services. All trails and amenities are used at your own risk.

Heat Reminder

As the weather gets colder please ensure that the thermostats are set at a minimum temperature of 60 degrees. This minimum temperature must be maintained to prevent pipes from freezing and causing damage to your apartment as well as other apartments in the building.
