At Ash Street Cooperative, we do our best to work with our members to get them what they need and want. We also try to balance this with our need to maintain the property beautifully, and structurally sound to maintain the integrity of the buildings for generations to come. Therefore, we have recently reviewed and made changes to our satellite dish policy to reflect this balance.
For your convenience, we've listed the new policy below, as well as included images as a reference so you can see the new policy in action. If you have any questions about this new policy, feel free to call the office. And if you're not yet an Ash Street Cooperative member, now's the time to check us out! Call the office today to discuss upcoming availability.
