"Listening is where love begins: listening to ourselves and then to our neighbors."
Fred Rogers, Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood
You’ve moved off campus and into your own place in Boca Raton! Here’s some information and a few resources to help you be a good neighbor and adjust to off-campus life.
Limit boisterous, excessive or unusually loud noise from the premises. We aren’t saying don’t have fun, but be courteous of your neighbors when it comes to noise.
Did You Know?
Noise is one of the top reasons police are called.
Your neighbors don’t want to see a messy house. Remove trash & litter, garbage, solid waste and/or bulk items from the property.
Do not place items out for collection earlier than 24 hours prior to or after the collection day. Seriously... don’t be the person that leave their trash and recycling bins out for days.
Visit Sanitation for your garbage, bulk, vegetation & recycling days, plus other important information regarding your sanitation services.
Recycling Tip: Greasy pizza boxes can’t be recycled. Put them with your normal garbage.
Only 3 unrelated residents are permitted to live in a single family residence.
In Friends, no more than three of them ever lived together. If Monica, Chandler, Joey, Ross, Phoebe and Rachel could manage that, so can you.
Maintain property free of grass and weeds in excess of 8 inches.
You also need to keep the right-of-way (street/swale & sidewalk) free of prohibited objects and obstruction.
No parking on unapproved or unpermitted parking areas within a neighborhood. That means don’t park on the grass in the front lawn.
There is no parking on the paved portion (street / sidewalk) right-of-way.
What’s a right-of-way?
Right-of-way is a type of easement on your property that is owned by someone else, like the City or a utility company. Make sure your parked vehicles aren’t blocking sidewalks and roads.
Repair, attach a current and valid tag to the vehicle or remove the vehicle from your property.
Be a good pet owner and keep your furbaby on a leash. Also... pick up their poop!
Fines for animals off leash: $25 for first offense, $50 for second offense, and $100 for third offense.
