EXCITING NEWS FROM RALEIGH APARTMENT MANAGEMENT!
As you know, we are always looking for ways in which to improve and enhance the quality and life style of our valued residents. In an effort to provide additional amenities that are convenient and useful, we are now offering on-site self-storage.

It is with great pleasure that Hickory Hills East, in association with APT Storage, announces the delivery of commercial grade, secure, self-storage, available to you where you need it the most, on-site! These storage units are due to arrive early August.

The storage unit sizes available are:
4’ x 8’ = $42.00 per month plus 6% state sales tax
8’ x 8’ = $64.00 per month plus 6% state sales tax

All leases are Month to Month and require a $25.00 application fee.

Because the number of storage spaces will be limited, we suggest that you take advantage of this opportunity today. Applications will be taken on a first come, first serve basis and are available in our leasing office.

We hope you take advantage of this convenient amenity!


PACKAGE DELIVERIES
We gladly accept your packages from UPS, FEDEX or the Post Office when your not home. The delivery service is asked to leave a note on your door letting you know the package is at the Leasing Office. Sometimes this doesn't happen or occasionally the notes blow off the doors. Feel free to check with us anytime to see if your package is here. We do get several deliveries a day so we do ask that you pick them up in a timely manner.

GREEN TIPS FOR APARTMENT RESIDENTS

Do your part! By taking these simple steps, apartment residents can conserve fuel and water, reduce waste and save energy:

Lights Out

  • Turn off all lights when you leave a room.
  • Replace incandescent light bulbs with EPA ENERGY STAR-qualified compact fluorescents (CFL) or Light-emitting diodes (LED).

Did you know?

  • Lighting accounts for nearly 25% of total energy costs in the home or office.
  • Fluorescent light bulbs consume 75% less electricity, last 4-15 times longer, and generate 74% less heat than incandescent bulbs.

Power Off

  • Home electronics such as computers, TVs and printers use power even when idle. Turn your electronics off when not in use.

Conserve Water

  • Have all leaks or drippy faucets repaired immediately. Run your dishwasher with only full loads, and use the energy-savings setting if you have the option.

Did you know?

  • According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a faucet dripping at one drop per second wastes 2,700 gallons per year.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

  • At the grocery or hardware store, purchase products with the least amount of packaging waste.

St. Mary's to Subsidize Rental Homes to Attract Teachers
Lottery Will Determine Who Gets Townhouses

Seeking to alleviate the effects of Southern Maryland's affordable housing shortage, the St. Mary's County Board of Education will begin offering subsidized rental homes to a handful of first-year teachers.

Ten townhouses in California's Hickory Hills East subdivision will be provided to new teachers at a 12 percent discount from the usual monthly rent. Beginning in the summer, first-year teachers will be able to enter a lottery for the units, which range from studios to two-bedrooms.
