4.      I am a renter and would like to attend the meetings. I have questions and concerns. Unfortunately, the meetings are open to owners only. You should voice your questions and concerns to the owner of the home.

5.      I would like to reach out the community for general communication such as who could recommend a good handyman or who could recommend a nanny service. The management company offers a discussion board, which allows all owners with email access to communicate openly. They only ask that there is no abusive language.
