Turnagain Woods North Winter 2013 News

Winter Reminders

 Please DO NOT leave any windows open during the winter season.  This can cause pipes to freeze and break in your unit.  It is extremely important to maintain adequate heat in each unit to prevent pipes from freezing.

 Please be aware of the snow contractor this winter when they are plowing the driveway. Plan to move your vehicles in order to accommodate the plow.

 Please update Snow’s Management if you plan to be away from your unit for an extended period of time. Be prepared to provide an emergency contact that has access to your unit in case of an emergency.

 Winter in Alaska is the most beautiful of the seasons, especially for those who participate in the Anchorage Chamber of City of Lights program.  Help to light up your Association by adorning your unit with white miniature lights.  Splashes of miniature white lights and outdoor lighting transforms and brighten our city, creating a sense of community pride and enhancing safety.  Please remember these lights must come down when the last musher reaches Nome!
