Cold Weather Reminders

Spring is officially here in March, but we all know how extreme the weather can be here in Blacksburg. Here are some reminders in case Punxsutawney Phil’s ground hog day prediction is incorrect!

  • 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.
  • Heat Reminder: As the weather remains a little 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.

Want Some Cash?
