Re: Garage Roof Deck – Rules and Official Opening Party

Dear Resident,

We are very happy to announce that the garage roof deck is almost completely finished and, to celebrate, there will be an official opening party to be held on October 22nd. More details on that party will be sent out and signs posted.

While there are still a few things that have to be finished and some changes made to the design, the Board of Directors is happy with the finished product and even happier that all of the major construction on the garage roof and inside the garage have been completed. That project began in the summer of 2014. It was a long two years, but the final product adds a lot to the co-op and its community.

Previously, a quick set of rules was circulated, as some people were violating the most important ones before the roof deck was even officially opened. Attached to this memo is the full set of official rules for the roof deck, with clarification on those rules already sent out. This final version replaces any previous rules.

Hopefully, everyone has had a chance to enjoy the new roof deck. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the management office and Justin Verret.

The Board of Directors
Nagle Apartments Corp.

Oktoberfest 2016 – Let’s celebrate our new roof garden!


Hello NaBors,

Please save the date …

The Board would like to invite you all to join us in celebrating our new roof deck garden and kicking off the Fall Season with a bang and a beer for Oktoberfest 2016!

We will provide brats, hot dogs, veggie kabobs and some German beer! We will also have water on hand. We hope you can make it and ask you to bring a side dish to share with everyone, and if you want to drink something other than beer, please bring that too!

There will be face painting for the kids, too!

In order to better plan, we ask that you either RSVP online at or contact a board member and let them know.

We ask that you let us know by 10 October.

Hope to see you all there!
