Helpful Safety Tips and Reminders

Announcement for Multiple Communities

Dear Residents,

It is always important to be reminded of helpful safety tips to keep you and your family protected at all times. We urge you to report ANY suspicious activity, such as people walking or driving up and down the property, checking for unlocked doors or looking in windows and vehicles.

The most important thing you can do is call the police to report a crime or any suspicious activity. You are the eyes of our community!

Residential Safety Tips:

Lock all outside doors and windows before you leave the house and after you get home. Even if it is only...

Speaking of safety, my visitor had to walk through a dark street to park her car due to a lack of visitor parking.

Hi Corey! One of the benefits to living in the Hyde Park area is the walkability to nearby shopping and dining areas. If your visitor felt uncomfortable walking alone, however, I would suggest that she look into ride sharing services, such as Uber or Lyft, that would drop her off within the community. If this is not a viable option, then I would suggest that you meet her at her parking location to either pick her up or walk with her back to the community. At the very least, I would recommend that she call you so that you can stay on the phone with her until she reaches your apartment. I understand your frustration regarding the visiter parking availability, however this is not something that is able to be changed. We do want to encourage and promote personal safety awareness at all times, whether you are within the community or elsewhere. As always, I do appreciate your feedback and concern. Please know that we are here to assist you whenever possible and will do whatever we can to ensure your happiness within our community. Thank you and I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!

Oh damn is that one of the benefits of living in this community? Been living in this community over a year. Had no idea. I admire your problem solving for my situation. If only you’d administer the same problem solving for the visitor parking fiasco. But apparently that’s unsolvable. Then again it’s not your problem is it?

Hi Corey! I just left you a voicemail and would be happy to review the parking situation with you again, as I understand that you are still frustrated regarding this issue. Your happiness in our community is always our #1 concern and so I do consider this a problem that I would like to resolve for you. While your desired solution is unfortunately not an option, I am happy to help provide other suggestions and solutions that have worked well for others. I left my contact information on your voicemail and am available to discuss further at your convenience. Thank you again and I hope you're having a happy day!

Renovation Update

Announcement for Schoolhouse Flats

Good afternoon Resident!

I wanted to take the time to send out an update on the progress of the renovations within your building and also regarding the interior hallways.

As we are coming to a near end of the interior renovations I would like to take a moment and thank you all for being so understanding of the work that has been done while living here. I know from experience that living in a home while under renovations can be sometimes trying but the end result is always worth it!

I am excited to announce that we will be installing new interior hallway flooring...

Let me introduce myself!

Announcement for Multiple Communities

Hi everyone! My name is Kara Young and I just recently joined the McKinley Hyde Park team as the new Community Manager. I come to you with 15 years of property management experience. I was born in New Orleans, LA and my home is now in Saint Petersburg where I love spending time with my two fur babies Brees and Abby. I enjoy spending my time sailing, playing the violin and traveling. I sail in many races with my father to include the Regata Del Sol from Tampa Bay to Isla Mujeres just off the coast of Cancun in an open ocean race with a distance of 456 miles. LOT'S of fun!

I hope to...

Both of you are mistaken and not addressing the issue of McKinley taking out the trash. I live in Ivy Flats. I have complained about this issue since move in back in April. Ivy Flats trash and/or/both recycling is on Tuesday and Friday.

The dryers suck

Feedback Problem for Schoolhouse Flats

Once again my clothes are left damp because these dryers suck. They're pathetic and it's ridiculous that I have to pay for them when they don't even dry my clothes...

Hello Alex,

We are sorry to hear that the dryers are not fully drying your clothes. We would be happy to speak with the company that services the washers and dryers. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. 

Thank you,
