Parking Reminders

There have been some recent parking frustrations both from management and residents, so we wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the parking expectations. All rules are in place to keep the communities looking great and residents safe. The following rules are simplified. Please review the full version attached.
¨ Only one vehicle per household is allowed to be parked in the street.
¨ Obey all parking and speed limit signs.
¨ Trailers will be considered on a case by case basis, but must be approved prior to parking.
¨ No inoperable, non-tagged vehicles or vehicles with expired tags anywhere in the community.
¨ No trucks licensed for more than 12,000# GVW.
¨ Absolutely no parking in the grass!


Winter Check Up

Cold weather always seems to sneak up on us when it comes to having our homes ready for the winter season. Taking a little time to check through this list can save you headaches and your budget.
¨ Make sure water is in the water line before plugging in heat tape.
¨ Make sure the water line heat tape is plugged in and is warm to the touch.
¨ Make sure you have an insulated water box.
¨ Call us if you would like to schedule a winter check up.
¨ Don’t let the faucets in your home drip. This can cause a costly sewer back up.
¨ Don’t lay your heat tape on the ground or in the elements. This limits the life expectancy.
¨ Don’t put heat tape on your sewer line. This is a high fire risk.
¨ We’ve featured a video on our Facebook page that demonstrates how to check your water box and heat tape. Check it out!
NOTE: Service calls are $50, plus $25/hour and material costs. A new installed heat tape costs about $150. A new installed water box costs $75.

Kari Killman

We would like to recognize Kari Killman as our Family 1st Community Hero! Kari and her family have been in the community for many years. Kari, who is a school secretary in Towanda does a great job bridging information regarding the school, City of Towanda and Family 1st Living, to help fill needs and communicate happenings between the groups. Kari printed and distributed flyers throughout Towanda for our grand reopening and community picnic. She helped solve the vandalism problem at the covered mailbox area and she and her daughter MacKenzie, have helped pick up and return playground balls that have wandered away. She always watches out for the kids in the community and works hard to help make our community not just a place to live, but a place to be proud of and call home. Thanks Kari and family for all you do! To nominate the next community hero, please call the office at 316-775-1080 or email Jennifer at jennifer@family1stliving.com.

Disc Golf Rules

WE HOPE YOU’VE GOTTEN A CHANCE TO CHECK OUT THE NEW DISC GOLF COURSE AT THE WEST SIDE OF THE COMMUNITY. IF YOU’RE NEW TO DISC GOLF, CHECK OUT A FEW BASIC RULES:

Objective of the Game

Disc Golf is played like traditional “ball” golf, but with flying discs instead of balls and clubs. One point (stroke) is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The goal is to play each hole in the fewest strokes possible. The player with the lowest total strokes for the entire course wins.
