Overall Improvements May be Needed

- Need general announcement about garbage shoots. Residents need to realize that if one shoot is left stuffed with garbage or if they forget to close the door, ALL the floors get affected. I am tired of going up and down the stairs trying to identify the problematic floor and shoving other people's garbage down the shoot. - Need general announcement that recycle goes to the first floor. - Need a size/model restriction for cars being parked in compact spots. Large cars squeezed into compact spots impedes on the adjacent full size lots, which is not fair to residents paying extra for those larger lots. - Would like to see management respond to inquiries faster. It sometimes take days and numerous follow ups before receiving a response.

Fixed the thermostat issue in the gym

We have been trying to get the temperature regulated in the gym without success for 3 years. It was unbearably cold in the winter time so much so that we limited our use significantly. We had given up but Chester without us bringing the issue to his attention fixed the issue by regulating the temperature directly on the equipment in the ceiling instead of using the thermostat, which never worked. It is great that someone from Maintenance is addressing the issues to increase the livability of Chroma.

Lovely place to live

Chroma is great. Building is really nice, underground parking garage is fantastic. Little expensive, but that's Cambridge these days
