8775 building buzzer/security system down

Feedback Problem for Schooner Cove

The buzzer for building 8775 has been out for the past 2 days. It seems the entire housing system is loose as if someone attempted to pull it off or maintenance never finished a project. I am not sure if it is an electrical problem as the hall lights are out in the building as well. It would be much appreciated if this issue is fixed for the security and safety of all the residents at 8775. Thanks

Good Morning D'Sjonaun! Thank you so much for letting us know about these situations.  I will happily put a work order in, addressing both the building buzzer and the lights in the hallway.  Our residents are very important to us, and certainly if you have suggestions for improvements, we welcome those suggestions.  I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy this weekend.  Thanking you again, Gail Grieve, Assistant Community Manager, gail.grieve@mckinley.com

maintenance

Feedback Problem for Schooner Cove

I cannot even begin to tell you how upset and angry I am about the way the leak in my ceiling was handled. The first time I called it was a very small spot on the ceiling. The maintenance person stated that it was overflow from the ac unit and that he had fixed it. I had to call again a week later for someone to come in and clean the mildew from my carpet. He then painted my ceiling while I was at work, covering everything in the room with paint splatters. If I had known he was coming, I would have at least put down a tarp. Three weeks later, I open the closet door and the ceiling has...

Park Visitor Parking

Feedback Problem for Schooner Cove

Almost every single day, our parking lot is completely full because of soccer parents parking in our lot instead of the park. I'm tired of having to park several buildings away just because our parking lot rules aren't enforced. This is the third time I've brought this problem to your attention. Please do not call me about this problem, just talk to the soccer people or call the tow trucks. Thank you...

There are over a dozen of these soccer parents parked in our lot and I'm not going to walk around and write down all their car information, that is your job. Please patrol your parking lots.

Broken Door Handle, smoker inside

Feedback Problem for Schooner Cove

Hello folks, I'm a new resident that is slowly moving into my apartment. I choose you folks because of the non-smoking focus because I am allergic to marijuana. Last night I came home to find the main hallway reeking of pot around 6pm, and again when I returned at about midnight when it was even worse. I suspect the individual doing this may be doing it in the evening when McKinley staff leave. The handle to the main entrance is loose and may pose a safety hazard, especially with regard to accessibility for and elderly person I saw struggling with it. It seems to be connected by one bolt...

We have a problem with thick smoke, as well. It's mainly from cigarette smoke and is most prevalent in the hallways of our building. This occurs after the office is closed. At times I can't even open the door without the smoke bellowing in. I've called the office to report this, but was told that there was nothing they could do. Being an ex-cigarette smoker, I understand the dilemma that the smokers are in, yet, the amount of offenive smoke in the evening and later is unacceptable. One of the reason I quit cigarettes is to remove the cigarette smell and taste from my life. Now these have returned and I'm powerless to change any of it. Why have a an apartment rule of no smoking if there is no way to enforce it?

City Code Inspections

Feedback Problem for Schooner Cove

Okay, just got the notice about city code inspections. Can a city code inspector come into your apartment home without your consent? Who are these people that will be in and out of our bedrooms and bathrooms? Do we have something in writing about it being okay for the Township of Ypsilanti employees to trace in and out of our apartment homes? This is not okay. Another thing, who is the person that is named at the bottom of the page, Linda Wells and what is Michigan Portfolio?

I agree with this. I also a pet, do I need to take him elsewhere if I am not able to lock him in my room or bathroom?

So it doesnt look like you can lock up pets, they will be going in every room.

We hope that everyone who participated in this program had a great time, and based on the response that was experienced this past summer season, we look forward to partnering with the YMCA again, and bringing this wonderful program back to the community next year.
