You may not use grills on your patio or balcony. You also may not store propane tanks or other combustibles on your patio or inside your apartment.
The pool hours are 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. We have apartments that back up to the pool so please be respectful and keep noise levels down.
- Glass is not permitted in the pool or pool area! A fine will be issued immediately if glass is seen.
- You are only allowed 2 guests per unit at the pool at one time. The pool is not large enough for each resident to bring as many guests as they wish.

The Woodlands is a pet-friendly community; however, we do have policies regarding pets. All pets must be registered & approved by management with a signed pet addendum. You will need to provide rabies vaccination and flea prevention information. Proper deposits must be paid before your pets are brought onto the property. You will find pet stations all around the community for your convenience to assist you with picking up after your pets. Please note that pets are not allowed in the clubhouse, at the pool or on the tennis & basketball courts. Pets must be on a leash and controlled at all times.
- Trash disposal is provided free of charge to tenants. All contents should be broken down and placed into the designated dumpster. We have two areas to dispose trash. The main trash compactor is located on Birch Leaf Lane – just go past the mailboxes to the very end of the complex and turn left. The other dumpster is located in the lower half of the community and is accessed through the lower gates on Elmwood Court.
- Please note that to operate the trash compactor on Birch Leaf Lane, you will walk up the ramp on the right side of the compactor, open the compactor door and throw your trash into the trash chute. You will then need to close the compactor door and push the “green” button to compact the trash. If the green button does not work, make sure the compactor door is completely closed and also make sure the red emergency button is pulled out and not pushed in. If the 80% or 100% light is on, please contact management so we can have the compactor emptied. Do not put hazardous waste or large items (furniture, appliances, etc) into the trash compactor. Also, do not leave trash or large items around the compactor as the service provider will not pick those items up. If you notice trash has been left outside the compactor or if you notice that the compactor is not working, please call management asap so that we can address the issue.
- If you need to dispose of large items, including furniture, please contact the Ivy Material Utilization Center at 4576 Dick Woods Road, Charlottesville, VA 22903. Phone: 434-295-3306
- Trash is not to be left on patios or balconies. If trash is found on your patio/balcony, you may be assessed a fine.
VII. Speed Limit
- Be advised that the speed limit within the community is 11 mph and is posted at the entrance to the community. Please slow down and watch for vehicles backing out of parking spaces and also watch for people getting out of their cars or walking their dogs. Tenants and children often cross Treetop Drive to get to the clubhouse and/or pool. Speeding will not be tolerated and you will be fined. Please do not text and drive! Statistics show those individuals who drive while sending or reading text messages are 23 times more likely to be involved in a car crash than other drivers. A crash typically happens within an average of three seconds after a driver is distracted.
