I rented my Coway Forest apartment in the Fall of 2009 when all outside lighting was operational. This is not what you, or I, are getting for our money now. This is my 4th attempt to get Conway Forest/McKinley to replace all the burned out bulbs that are putting us in harms way for crimes of opportunity. I've also noted that other residents have posted recent messages about burnt out bulbs, but I have no way of knowing if their issues were resolved.
This message is intended to alert neighbors of a recent car break-in and remind them to keep cars locked and not leave valuables in the car. During the evening of 10/27, or early morning of 10/28/10, a car was broken into in the parking lot of Buildings 5,6,7, etc. The police were called, the car was dusted for prints and a report was filed. It is unknown, at this time, if any valuables were taken. Hopefully, the large light that illuminates the center of this parking lot will soon be operational again. A well-lit area may deter crimes of opportunity, like this.

Due to an unforeseen emergency the water maintenance has been rescheduled:From: Wednesday October 27,2010To: Friday October 29,2010Again we apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 407-896-5440.
NOTE: When I first moved into Conway Forest, 08/09, the well-lit areas at night time were a major plus in my book. Sadly, the lighting is getting dim and could, potentially, open our apartment complex up to the crimes of opportunists. Hopefully, under the guidance of our new Property and Maintenance Mgrs., Tiffany and Jason, this problem will be addressed quickly.
With regards to my phone call to maintenance this weekend for the grossly over-flowing dumpster, the residents, nor any on-call maintenance person, would or should have to deal with this crazy nasty issue, if a timely maintenance policy were adopted and adhered to. The weekend over-flows happen frequently. This weekend was the worst I've seen in my year+ of Conway Forest residency. Garbage and flies were "literally" over-flowing out into the parking lot. Not acceptable. As residents have to pay a monthly fee for the one dumpster on site, a first for me in apartment residency...
I wanted to send kudos out to Fransisco, our on call maintenance representative the weekend of 10/23. When I phoned in a report that the dumpster was grossly overflowing, unsanetary and disgusting, he phoned me back within 15 minutes to let me know he was headed to the dumpster to check things out. He indicated he had also put in a call to his supervisor and I believe he said they had placed a call to try to get it emptied (may not be possible on a Sunday). When I returned from running errends, Fransisco was at the dumpster, sweeping and cleaning up the mess the best he could for a good hour...
