Helpful Hints for living at Chelsea Towers

This committee would provide general assistance on relatively small issues. For example, provide guidance to unit owners on how to clean the sliding rails of the sliding doors. Dirt accumulates and makes it harder and harder to open them. In addition, general support for people who need minor assistance with their equipment. When water heaters break catastrophically there is damage to all the apartments below. This is expensive and irritating for all. The state of the water heaters in all apartments should be considered with recommendations for replacement. In addition, in an emergency of any kind related to water, the operation of the Water Cut-Off Valves is critical to keep damage at a minimum. They all need to be examined and replaced as appropriate. Further the need for painting the balcony panels and balcony handrails also should be considered. Another issue is the persistent smoke and odors that permeate the hallways in the vicinity of apartments inhabited by heavy smokers. This can be easily controlled through the use of winterizing procedures for their front doors.

Safety through Surveillance in and around Chelsea Tower

We have areas of the building and parking lots which are not currently adequately or continually surveyed. This is easy to accomplish using wireless cameras. They all would connected to the existing Wi-Fi system. All that is needed is a Wireless Router, and power for the individual cameras. The system will take up to 32 cameras. They work all the time, both during the day and at night. They are very inexpensive. In addition they keep records of all they record in the event of a dispute.

Landscaping of Chelsea Tower

We live in a beautiful area of Montgomery County. Among the talented and devoted gardeners there is considerable enthusiastic discussion about how our landscaping could be even better than it is.

Parking at Chelsea Tower

The distribution of parking spaces in the Chelsea Tower Parking Lot does not meet the expectations and needs of the Unit Owners. This issue needs to be discussed, and a detailed program for allocation and distribution of the parking spaces needs to be obtained from this committee.
