Important Gate Information

As you may have noticed, we have had several instances recently where the gate arm has been broken. The entry gate is a premium feature of our community, and we strive to keep it in good working order. 

When property damage occurs, we do review surveillance video with our courtesy officer to identify the person(s) responsible, and a $100 fine is assessed. 

Violations to gate protocol will result in access to resident amenities being limited or revoked. Violators to gate protocol may receive a police citation, and non-residents may be charged with trespassing. 

Piggy-backing, or following closely behind another vehicle, passing another vehicle while entering the front gate, and entering through the exit are strictly prohibited.

When you have a guest come to the gate, please instruct them as to how to use the gate kiosk. They may scroll to your name and hit call, or enter your 3 digit ID, at which point the kiosk will call directly to whatever number you have provided. 

You may talk to the person at the gate, verify their identity, and press “9” to open the gate remotely. If you do not know your 3 digit ID, please contact our Welcome Center, and we can provide it to you. If your phone number has not been entered into the gate system, please make arrangements to meet your guests at the gate to allow them access.

If you witness anyone following others through the gate, or otherwise violating community policies, please inform us immediately, providing the time and a description of the vehicle. If you have any questions about the entry gate, please contact our Welcome Center.

Proceeds for Pups

Auston Woods is partnering with the Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue. During rent week, we will be accepting brand new towels, dog beds, blankets, toys, treats, leashes, collars, crates and food, as well as monetary donations, with 100% of proceeds will go directly to the Rescue. 

Please make any checks payable to the Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue. For further information on the Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue, please visit www.BlueRidgeBoxerRescue.com.

Continuing Community Work

We would like to thank you for your patience and cooperation while we work to complete the pressure washing and preventative maintenance routine throughout the community. We also appreciate your assistance in helping to keep our community grounds looking great every day! Thanks to all of your continuing efforts, we have a beautiful community, of which we can all be very proud!

Pick Up After Your Pooch

We love our four-legged residents, but have recently noticed several areas where pet waste is not being properly disposed of. Not only is pet waste an eyesore, but it can also cause unpleasant odors and spread disease. For the safety of all residents and pets, we ask that you please be sure to pick up pet waste when walking your dog. Failure to pick up after your pet will result in a $25 fine per occurrence. For your convenience, there are pet waste stations located throughout the community.

Resident Surveys

If you have had a work order completed recently, you may have received a Resident Survey Card. Please take a few minutes to complete a short online survey to let us know how we are doing, or if there is anything you would like to see done differently. You may complete a survey now at www.HHHuntSurveys.com. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

Energy Saving Tips

We all want to save a little extra money. To help reduce your electric bill, here are some small tips that can go a long way.

  • When going away for several days, bump your air conditioner up a few extra degrees so it does not have to work as hard to cool while you are gone.
  • Set your air conditioner a degree or two higher than you typically would, and use your ceiling fans to stay cool and keep air circulating. If you turn the unit down while you are home, only vary the setting by 2-3 degrees.
  • Using your dishwasher uses less water than washing by hand. Set your dishwasher to air dry to save more energy.
  • Add some color to your apartment and save on your electric bill by putting up curtains. Not only will your home have more personality, but it will stay cooler during the day, too.
  • Wash your laundry using cold water whenever possible, as hot water heating accounts for the majority of the electric usage for your washing machine.
