Pool Party Success

Thank you to all who came out and made our pool party a success! We had a wonderful time, and hope that you all enjoyed yourselves as well. 

Would you like to see more events like this in the future, or do you have ideas to make next year’s pool party even better? Email your Community Activity ideas to Terri at todinkins@hhhunt.com.

Maintenance Tips of the Month

  • To keep your air conditioner in good working order, do not run your air conditioner while windows are open. This not only causes undue strain on the equipment, but will also increase your electric bill.
  • It is most cost effective to set the thermostat to a comfortable temperature and not adjust the setting through the day. Adjusting the thermostat to a warmer temperature during the day, or turning the unit off, will cause the system to work harder to cool the apartment back down, resulting in a higher electric bill.
  • Use ceiling fans to help circulate the air in the apartment.
  • Be sure that the air conditioner is set to “Auto”; if set to “On”, the fan will run but it will not cool

Travel Safety

This time of year, travelling is a high priority for many people. Of course, making sure that you and your belongings are safe is also high on the list.

  • If you are traveling by car, map out your route in advance, planning stops every couple of hours.
  • Do not drive tired. Staying alert, especially in unfamiliar surroundings, is key to staying safe.
  • Do not post on Facebook about your upcoming vacation, or post pictures of your vacation while you are gone, as this may allow others to know that you are away from home.
  • Plan for a friend to stop by, pick up mail, and check in on your home, plants, and/or animals.
  • If you are planning to be gone for an extended period of time, contact the Welcome Center so that items are not left at your door.

Help Us Keep Our
Community Clean

We have recently noticed an increase in litter throughout the community. 

Garbage that has not been disposed of properly poses a big concern, not only because it is unsightly, but also because it may act as an attractant to pests and wildlife. 

Trash items should always be placed inside the trash compactors or appropriate trash receptacles, not along the walls or in other areas of the community. 

 Pet waste must also be disposed of properly. In addition to causing unpleasant odors, pet waste poses a health hazard to people and animals. 

For your convenience, pet waste stations are located throughout the community.

Please note that anyone who does not properly dispose of waste materials will be charged $25/waste item.

Buy Local

There are many benefits to buying locally sourced food items. 

Buying local reduces energy consumption typically used for transporting and storing food, increases regional economic health, and provides fresher, more nutritionally complete food items. 

Right here in Charlotte, there are several places to go for the freshest options: Charlotte Regional Farmers Market, 7th Street Public Market, Hillbilly Produce Market, and Newell Farmers Market, just to name a few. 

Visit the local markets to see what this region has to offer.

Holiday Hours

In observance of Independence Day, the Welcome Center will be closed on Thursday, July 4th. 

Rent payments may be placed in the overnight drop-box. If you have a maintenance emergency, please call 704-684-0725. 

We will reopen for regular business hours on Friday, July 5th. We hope that each of you has a safe and happy holiday.
