Gainesville Apartment Complex Imposes Strict Rules


Some residents at Aviara Apartments are upset after a change in management led to new rules such as any property left on outside grass would be discarded. Management also wants a new nighttime curfew with daily quiet time hours starting at 8 p.m.

Jessica Marsh, who has lived at Aviara Apartments for two years, discovered her garden had been raked over and her potted plants had been removed.

“I continued to watch as they threw away other people’s grills that were outside,” she said. “They threw away chairs. They threw away toys. They threw away lots of different property that belonged to other people.”

The property manager was out of town at the time this story was conducted and was unavailable for comment.

Residents say they’re talking to lawyers about their legal options.
