Can emergency vehicles adequately access our condominium site?
Emergency vehicles can access condominium sites provided that the internal roadways are free of garbage, snow and/or vehicles. Fire hydrant areas should also remain free of garbage, snow and/or vehicles.
If the internal roads and/or hydrants are blocked by snow, garbage and/or vehicles who is responsible to keep these areas clean?
It is the Condominium Association’s responsibility to ensure that the condominium complex is accessible by emergency vehicles and that the fire hydrants available for use. A Condominium Association’s Bylaws should, among other items, address garbage collection and removal; snow removal; and parking privileges of its owners, tenants and visitors. Enforcement provisions should be carried out by the Condominium Association.
Can the Town assist us with snow removal and/or garbage removal?
The condominium complex is on private property and should be co-ordinated by the Condominium Association and paid through Condominium Association fees.
Can the Town assist us in enforcing our parking regulations?
Although the Town may have assisted with parking violations in the past, these parking violations are in accordance with the Condominium Association’s Bylaws and occur on private property. The Town subjects itself to liability when enforcing Bylaws with which we are unfamiliar. The Town is able to enforce TAC standards only.
How can the Condominium Association address parking issues?
The Condominium Association may adopt Bylaws which clearly state regulations for parking. The Condominium Association may adopt regulations which state how many vehicles may be registered to each unit. The Association may also control its resident and visitor parking by issuing parking passes. Additionally, regulations may be stated as to where parking can occur. Each unit is provided with two stalls; one in the garage and one on the driveway and these may be specifically noted in the Condominium’s Bylaws.
