    General Announcement

Although no power interruption is expected during this cut-over, it is possible that buildings 164 & 165 may experience brief, temporary outages. We will be communicating directly with those residents, but wanted to share this advisory here, as well as to signal that the project is coming to a close soon. Certainly residents' cooperation with temporary parking changes was greatly appreciated during this project! We apologize in advance any inconvenience this may cause you.
