Hello fellow Peaks Owners over the weekend we had a distressing occurrence happen in one of our buildings between Friday night August 27 and Saturday August 28, 2021 a human/dog defecated in the stairwell of the Birch building.
How does this happen?
Who is responsible? Help us find the culprits.
We would like your help to identify the culprits and prevent anything like this happening again.
If any one has information about people seen in the vicinity of the Birch Stairwell on Friday night August 27 or Saturday August 28 let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org your information will be kept in confidence.
Also should anyone see anything suspicious or people or animals damaging our property at any time let the Peaks Board know. If we all help care for the complex it will be a better place to live and vacation at.
On Friday September 10, in the afternoon, we will be testing the fire alarm signal devices, with full alarms sounding. We need to gain access to each residence to test the fire and signal devices, as required by the BC Fire Code, and the insurance underwriters. If you are not planning to be in your suite on this day, please arrange with the property manager to provide access to your suite. If you are home and have silenced the suite horn, please step into the hallway to confirm with us.
Saturday September 11, we are conducting an inspection and test of the fire alarm system life-safety system in this building. All of the testing will be silent, beginning around 8:00 am.
Please be aware that there will be periods of time without fire detection. This should not be an indication to evacuate.
This is a very important test and ensures your safety in the event of a fire. The inspection testing is a mandatory requirement by the fire commissioner’s office, for the BC Fire Code.
If you are home, it is important that you silence the in-suite buzzer when the signals begin.
Also On Friday afternoon, September 10, we are conducting an inspection test of the domestic water backflow device, in compliance with BCWWA and the local purveyor. The water will be shut off briefly (up to ½ hour in each building) from about 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm.
We appreciate your cooperation to assist us to complete this important service.
It has come to the attention of the board by owners and our Landscaping company that pets are being chained to the common property, trees or spikes are being put into the grass outside of their balconies/patios for pets to run freely. This needs to stop immediately or fines will be levied to owners. The grass is being damaged and the feces is making a mess on our landscaping company’s equipment. Please see below the bylaw and rules of conduct.
(4) An owner, tenant or occupant must not keep any pets on a strata lot other than one or more of the following: a reasonable number of fish or other small aquarium animals; a reasonable number of small caged mammals; up to 2 caged birds; one dog or one cat; which numbers may be increased with written approval of the Strata Council, and provided that the Strata Council may at any time, in writing, require the removal of any pet which is permitted by this By-Law or by any additional written approval, if, in the opinion of the Strata Council, the pet is a nuisance or is causing an annoyance to others. Upon receipt of such notice, such pet shall be removed forthwith from the Strata Lot.
It is the owners responsibility to ensure the bylaw and rules of conduct are followed by all family, visitors, guests and renters.
Pets of family, visitors, guests and renters must be made aware of the bylaw and rules of conduct and are allowed on site with the owner’s permission only.
Pets must be fully supervised and on leash in all common areas.
Dogs must be taken to the designated relief area west of the west garbage building.
Pet owners must clean up fecal matter deposited by their pets anywhere on the property or the designated relief area.
Just a reminder to all owners and tenants that you are not allowed to prop open the front doors and leave them unattended. Last night at the Willow the front door was left wide open and nobody was around and today the front door at the Birch was left wide open and nobody around.
The security of our property is very important and all owners who notice any problems should advise the Strata Board as soon as possible.
Thank you and let’s have a safe and secure summer.
