King Farm Management Update

Community Notice – Please do not leave food out for animals! 
Management has received complaints that food was left out in front of Bailey’s Commons Pool. It is likely that the food was left for cats in the neighborhood, but leaving food out attracts rodents and other unwanted critters. As a reminder, please properly dispose of food and other garbage appropriately. This means food and trash left outside for trash collection should always be placed in a vermin-proof and waterproof container with a lid to prevent unwanted access by animals. We appreciate your cooperation.
