Condominium of Avondale Estates
Guide to Living
This is list of some of the basic things that we all need to know. Many of these are old hat to you, but someone new to our community would like to know them.
Management: Our Condominium is managed by volunteer board members, with contracted support services from Heritage Property Management. We are always looking for additional help in carrying out this function. Lists of officers and committee chairs appear in many documents distributed throughout the year and on this web site.
All residents have agreed at the time they bought or moved in to abide by the Declaration of Condominium and the By-Laws of the Association. In addition to these we have Architectural Standards and Gardening Guidelines established that define the boundaries to stay compliant with the Declaration and By-Laws. Copies of all these documents can be obtained by contacting the Secretary of the Association or from this web site.
Requests for services, complaints and compliments to the Association board members and committee chairs should be made in writing. Feel free to write to any official. Email communication is preferred and email addresses are provided on the Contacts page. However, notes may also be placed in the green mailbox in front of the pool house. The box is checked regularly by all members of the Board of Directors and Committee Chairs.
Parking: There are no assigned parking spaces. Please respect those who need handicapped spaces. Guests should be asked to park in the spaces furthest from the units, which are usually in the islands within the cul-de-sac.
Trash and Recycling: Trash pickup is Monday & Thursday - Each Unit is to provide their own trash can(s) for placement in the garbage areas. The city will get the trash from the garbage areas. Trash does not go on the curbs at any time.
Recyclables are picked up on Wednesdays and should be placed in a bin provided by the City of Avondale Estates. If you are missing a recycling bin contact City Hall at 404-294-5400. We recycle cans, paper and more. The city no longer accepts glass items for recycling, so they should not be placed in your recycling bin. Glass items (sorted by color) are accepted at the DeKalb Farmers Market recycling area.
Large Item Trash: If you have a large item (stove, hot water heater, etc.) to be picked up for garbage the regular truck will not pick it up. However, you can arrange to have the item picked up at no charge by completing the online request form available 24/7 at Special Pickup Request. You may also call Avondale Estates City Hall during business hours at (404) 294-5400 to arrange for pick-up.
Utilities: Water is included with your Association fee. Residents must arrange all other utilities for the unit.
Pool and Tennis: Each unit is given an electronic key fob that will allow you access to these facilities. The use of these facilities is limited to residents and no more than four (4) guests at a time. All people under the age of 14 must have a parent or guardian present when using the pool. Additional pool rules are posted at the facility. Email the AECA Secretary or place a note in the green mailbox in front of the pool house to request a fob if you don't have one.
