ATTENTION PLEASE ALL WHO USE 3750 EXERCISE FACILITIES!
The Board has become aware of the fact that some shareholders are using the exercise facilities without making a reservation. Reservations must be made to ensure that you are not taking the space of someone who has reserved and is late for their exercise time. The website to use is: 3750 LSD Reservation Website or https://3750lakeshoredrive.simplybook.it/v2/#. All Zones must be reserved individually. If you wish to move from any exercise machine to the pool both areas must be reserved.
Even more important to note is that some shareholders have not been masking properly. Facemasks must cover your MOUTH AND NOSE while exercising and in any public area in the building. No exceptions. If you see someone who is improperly masked, please gently remind him or her to cover up.
EXERCISE RESERVATION AND MASKING RULES ARE A STATE REQUIREMENT. If these requests continue to be ignored, we will be forced to consider shutting down the facilities. At the very least people who abuse the rules will lose their exercise privileges. No one wants any of this to happen so please, please take care of yourself and your neighbors by adhering to the rules.
SOME GOOD NEWS…
3750 has passed the Life Safety Inspection. We do have to make some small corrections, but we expect the court case to be dismissed. Please note that no apartments were visited by the inspector because of COVID. Apartments may be spot checked by the city at any time. Also all fire doors, hardware and corridors in all apartments will be subject to periodic inspection by the building staff.
All storage items that were removed for the basement locker construction project have been returned. Basement electric work will continue, but it shouldn’t interfere with access. If the light doesn’t go on in your assigned storage unit please let Drago know asap. If after hours, notify the Lake Shore doorman.
Please be sure to thank Vlad, Ivan, Elisa and Jerry Hocker when you see them. They worked hard to make the Garden Court and lobbies look beautiful.
Call for Christmas ornaments: If you have some ornaments that are in good shape that you’d like to get rid of please consider donating them to the building. Not everything can be used, and if not used, we will dispose of them for you. Notify Drago if you wish to donate ornaments.
GENTLE REMINDER: Trash is to be put out in bags that are tied or otherwise sealed. There will be a ton of trash during the holidays so let’s make the cleanup process easier for our hard working maintenance staff.
