Recreational vehicles, boat trailers, trailers and commercial trucks with exposed storage racks, more than four wheels or exceeding a Gross Combination Weight Rating of 12,000 pounds cannot be parked in the housing areas for extended periods.
Recreational vehicle storage space can be leased on post from the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s Leisure Travel Office. For more information about vehicle storage, call 684-2580.
Other family vehicles that are properly licensed and registered can park in the garage, driveway, or in other authorized parking areas along the road surface beside the curb — in that priority.
Inoperable vehicles can be parked for up to 30 days with the proper static permit issued by the Provost Marshal Office. Vehicles that are not properly registered cannot be parked in residential housing areas. If space permits, these vehicles can be stored in the RV and boat parking area. FLFHC will contact anyone in violation to attempt to correct the problem. If the problem is not corrected or presents a traffic or safety hazard, the vehicle will be towed at the owner’s expense in accordance with post regulations.
For more information about parking regulations, see the Resident Guidelines and Community Handbook or contact the FLFHC office at (913) 682-6300.
Residents are responsible for mowing, trimming, edging and watering within their fenced areas.
TideWater Landscape Management, Inc., FLFHC’s contracted landscape company, mows, trims and collects leaves in all areas that are not fenced in. TideWater has a schedule for the different villages. Be sure to put all toys, garden hoses, patio furniture and any other belongings away before the scheduled mowing day. FLFHC/TideWater will not be responsible for damages or failure to mow areas where items are left out.
Deffenbaugh does routine trash pick up on Fridays. Residents are reminded to move waste and recycling containers back into a garage or near the back door after trash has been picked up and not leave them on the curb where they can create a safety hazard. Residents who live in other villages without waste or recycle bins are reminded to place waste completely inside community trash bins. Animals can become a nuisance when waste is left within their reach. If a trash bin is full or overflowing, contact Maintenance at (913) 651-3838.
All residents are invited to attend the quarterly residents meeting at 5 p.m. Aug. 2 in the FLFHC office conference room at 549 Kearney Ave.
