Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities removes snow and ice from starts, stops, hills, school sidewalks and crosswalks, public sidewalks, roads and parking lots in residential areas only if there are two or more inches on the ground. Residents are responsible for the removal of snow and ice between any common sidewalks or roads and the front or back doors and driveways.
During a snowstorm or unsafe weather conditions, snow and ice removal will be delayed until weather conditions return to a safe status.
Residents are asked not to use salt products to de-ice around their homes because it can damage the concrete.
For more information about snow and ice removal, see the Resident Guidelines and Community Handbook or call (913) 682-6300.
Department of the Army Resident Communities Initiative surveys were e-mailed to FLFHC residents Nov. 12. The survey lets the Army and FLFHC know residents’ opinions about on-post housing and identifies what is being done well and where improvement is needed.
Only 17 percent of residents have completed the survey. The survey will continue until Dec. 12.
This survey is being administered through a third party, CEL & Associates Inc. Survey results are confidential, so residents are encouraged to express their true opinions and thoughts.
If residents have not received the survey e-mail, they should check their e-mail spam folder for an e-mail from ArmyHousingSurvey@celassociates.com. Anyone who did not receive the e-mail with the survey link should contact the FLFHC Community Management Office at (913) 682-6300.
The FLFHC offices, including the Self-Help Store, will be closed Nov. 28-29 for Thanksgiving. In case of a maintenance emergency or to submit a work order, call the 24-hour maintenance line at (913) 651-3838.
A reasonable amount of inside/outside electrical holiday decorations can be displayed during the month of or 30 days before a holiday, whichever is longer. All decorations must be removed within two weeks after the holiday. Remove Thanksgiving decorations by Dec. 12 and Christmas decorations by Jan. 9.
Holiday exterior lighting should only be used after dark, turned off by 11 p.m. and unplugged whenever residents are not home.
Rooftop decorations are prohibited and all decorative materials must be fire resistant. Nails, spikes, building staples or any other type of fastener that may leave permanent damage is prohibited. Residents can use clips or tape to install holiday lighting and should carefully inspect and control ornamental lighting to avoid fires. Outside light and electrical cords must be UL approved and designated for outdoor use. Cords should not be run out of windows or across heating or ventilation ducts. Residents should always check their smoke alarms before using holiday decorations.
Residents can place lawn ornaments if the decorations are maintained and presented in a pleasing appearance and will not interfere with maintenance of the lawn. Exterior lighting must be ground fault indicator protected and not overloaded.
For more information, see the Resident Guidelines and Community Handbook.
Plan lighting. A good lighting plan can reduce lighting costs and still provide all the light needed. Not every room needs the same amount of general light.
