    5/5 Tiffany T. on Oct 16, 2023

    I have lived here since March 2022. The grounds and landscaping are well-kept throughout the season. During the winter months, snow clean-up is timely. Maintenance of the entranceway and walls is well-kept. The no-wait response to incidents in my dwelling place is handled discreetly. I appreciate the safety and security of incoming mail and packages located in the main office building. The access to the mailroom is 24/7. The staff is courteous and user friendly. Announcements of changes are clear and concise and allows for planning. The outside entranceway is salted. The campus grounds are well-groomed. Management supplies poop bags which is convenient. The disposal of waste receptacles are plentiful and close by.
