Courtyard Rules

(If you are looking for the roof deck rules, please click here.)

The Board unanimously adopted the following rules for the courtyard. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact any board member.

The entire courtyard is open to all shareholders and residents from 10:00 a.m. to sunset.

The fee for use of the courtyard other than as stated in the rules is $2,500.00.

The following are prohibited

  • smoking (see the full No Smoking Policy

  • excessive noise

  • pets

  • ball playing

  • unsupervised children under age 14

  • cooking/use of grill without prior Board approval

  • littering

  • musical instruments

  • kiddy pools

  • playing a radio or TV or any other sound device operation without headphones

  • candles or objects with flames

Personal property may not be left in the courtyard when you leave.

There may be no parties or events (with over six guests per apartment) without Board approval in advance. Shareholders and tenants are responsible for the behavior of their nonresident guests.

Guests may be invited to use the courtyard as long as the resident or shareholder who invited them is present and the number of guests per apartment is no more than six. (If apartments have been joined together, or the resident owns more than one non-joined apartment, the maximum number of people per group still cannot exceed six.)

Violations of the rules may subject the shareholder or resident to courtyard fees or other actions, including restitution and/or lease termination.

When someone wants to have a courtyard party with over six guests per apartment, permission must be granted in advance by the Board. To make the procedure more equitable, the following guidelines were adopted:

a. Regular courtyard rules must be observed.

b. Anyone planning to hold a party with over 6 (six) guests must be in compliance with all rules of the co-op.

c. The board must be contacted at least three weeks in advance in writing, including all details.

d. Notification will be posted on the bulletin board by the host of the party immediately after the board grants permission.

e. A deposit of $500 is required.

f. No courtyard noise may disturb the lobby floor residents.

g. Non resident guests limited to 20 people (with an admission list furnished in advance).

h. Three hour limit to parties.

i. A member of the staff must be present during the party; cost to be billed to the apartment hosting the party. The staff member will make sure all rules are followed and that the person throwing the party removes any trash from the courtyard.

j. Unauthorized parties of over six guests per apartment (including residents) are subject to a $2,500 fee.
