For a few years now, the Dorchester House (at 16th and Kalorama) has been undergoing renovations and policy changes. Most recently, the building and it’s management company decided that residents who were entering or exiting the building with their bicycles were required to use only the basement or side entrance and were prohibited from using the main lobby entrance. Their reasoning is that bicycles are allegedly messing up their new carpet (even though many, many more dirty feet come trekking through that lobby).
They have also indicated that anyone caught violating this policy would first receive a written warning, followed by a $200 fine and (on a third offense) eviction.
My question: Is this a legal, “reasonable policy” change and has anyone else ever experienced this type of restriction on residents with bicycles?
