Heat Reminder

As the weather gets colder please ensure that the thermostats are set at a minimum temperature of 60 degrees. This minimum temperature must be maintained to prevent pipes from freezing and causing damage to your apartment as well as other apartments in the building.


Complimentary Carpet Cleaning

Complimentary carpet cleaning is currently being offered until the end of March. To qualify you must have lived in your apartment home for six months and have at least three months remaining on your lease.

Please call the Welcome Center at 951-1221 to schedule your carpet cleaning. Space is limited, so reserve your spot TODAY!

**Any appointments not kept by the resident or cancelled within 72 hours of the appointment will be charged a $25 rescheduling fee.**


Duck Pond

NO ONE is allowed in or on the pond for any reason. Even when the pond may appear to be frozen over, there is no way to check the thickness and consistency of the ice. Please do not risk your safety. Along the same lines, we ask that no one throw rocks into the pond. Not only does this create a weaker “shoreline” by removing the border, but it also costs the community and ultimately each residents. It creates a budget expense as we may have to dredge the rocks out of the center and reinforce the bank. We have also agreed to allow Blacksburg Fire and Rescue to conduct training at our pond when it has frozen over. We have offered the use of our pond to the Blacksburg Rescue Squad. When our pond freezes you may see the rescue squad completing pond rescue drills. This could be completed several times during the winter months. The area will be clearly marked with emergency vehicles and signage stating that it is only a drill.

Safety Tips

As darkness comes earlier in the evenings it is important to remember a few key pedestrian safety tips.

  • When possible use sidewalks or trails and do not walk in the roadways. Always use crosswalks when available.
  • If a sidewalk, trail or crosswalk is not available walk in the roadway closest to the curb and look both ways before crossing the street.
  • If it is necessary to walk in roadways, walk facing oncoming traffic.
  • If walking after dusk wear light colored clothing or a reflective vest to be more visible to motorists.
  • Put down your cell phones and avoid wearing your headphones if it is necessary to walk in the roadway. Using these can distract you from what is going on around you.
