“It’s concerning from a public health perspective, but more so extremely frustrating that our building cares so little about community safety.”

“Dear PoPville,

I need help with my apartment building. I live in Senate Square, and I’m at my wit’s end. The compliance with distancing and parties has been getting increasingly bad in our complex. However, the worst is the fact that a unit down the hall has been getting rented out on Airbnb for the entirety of the pandemic. Several times, it’s been the site of large (30+ people) parties, no distancing or masks, tons of loud music, people partying in the halls, yada. Other residents have held similarly-sized, loud parties on the roof.

A number of apartments in the building have complained about this unit in particular on several occasions to the management, to no end. Management has done as much of a virtual shoulder-shrug as I’ve ever seen, about what to do about this apartment and others, which is to say they’ve done absolutely nothing to mitigate the problem. My question is, do we have any recourse? What can we do? My spouse is at-risk, as are others around and close to us. It’s concerning from a public health perspective, but more so extremely frustrating that our building cares so little about community safety.

Management has done diddly – just has told us to leave it to the front desk, who’s told us separately to deal with it ourselves and to contact management. Lather, rinse, repeat.”
