APARTMENT GUIDELINES: In this section, the term ―manager‖ will refer to the vice president of senior housing or designated Meadows management staff member. Right of Inspection: Residents must permit management staff to enter the apartment to make repairs and periodic inspections. Management staff will enter only during reasonable hours, having provided advance notice to the resident and receiving the resident’s consent to enter the apartment, except when emergencies may make such notice impossible. For example, if the resident should move out before the lease is terminated, management staff may enter the apartment to remodel, alter, or otherwise prepare the apartment for re-occupancy. After the resident has given notice of intent to move, the resident agrees to permit the management staff to show the apartment to prospective residents during reasonable hours, with advance notice provided. Keys/Locks: No additional or different locks may be installed on doors or windows without the manager’s permission. If permission is granted, St. John’s management must have a key to the new lock. All keys must be returned to the manager upon vacating the apartment. All copies of St. John’s senior community’s keys must be made by St. John’s management staff only. The key FOB given to you upon move-in is the master key to each exterior door campus-wide. Hold the key FOB up to the small black box on the wall when entering. A green light will flash, and the door will unlock. Smoking Policy: St. John’s senior community campuses are smoke-free environments. Smoking is not permitted anywhere by you, your guests, or visitors. This policy is strictly enforced and could result in lease termination if violated. Personal Property: St. John’s is not responsible for any resident’s or guest’s personal property. Residents are requested to carry renters insurance before move-in. Storage Locker: Each apartment resident is given a storage cage near their apartment. You will have access to your storage unit at all times. If you wish to add shelves to your storage unit, please contact the Building Services Coordinator at 585-242-7003. The residents must obtain storage unit locks if desired. The size of the cage is approximately 3’ x 3’ x 7.5’. Any food items in your storage must be in a sealed plastic container. Guest Policy: Residents are responsible for their guests’ compliance with all resident guidelines. Overnight guests are welcome provided that the guests’ stay is no longer than four consecutive weeks, with a maximum stay of six weeks per year per guest. In addition, any guests are welcome to use the swimming pool at Chestnut Court, and other campus amenities provided the resident is present during use.

GARDEN/LANDSCAPE POLICY Our goal is to improve and protect the landscape, installation, and maintenance of all St. John’s senior communities. This will be achieved using sound procedures delivered by a well-informed and welltrained landscaping team using environmental best practices. The following policy regarding landscaping will be discussed with incoming residents by the community representatives and move-in Coordinator as admission discussions are held. 1. Residents planning on customizing their gardens and plantings around their apartment, cottage, bungalow, or townhome are required to review their plans with St. John’s management. Once approved, the resident may proceed with the planned installation of gardens and plantings of the resident’s home. No review is needed to plant annuals, perennials, or bulbs. 8


2. All private landscaping firms hired by a resident will be required to provide proof of insurance and present references to St. John’s management before performing work on behalf of the resident. 3. St. John’s Grounds Services will be responsible for planting and maintaining the front beds of the apartments, cottages, bungalows, and townhouses unless the resident indicates otherwise. The resident will be responsible for keeping their plantings (when applicable) on the sides and rear of the cottages, bungalows, and townhouses. However, if a resident wishes to have their personal gardens maintained by St. John’s Ground Services, it is available at an additional cost. 4. If a resident can no longer maintain their gardens, St. John’s Ground Services will return the site to its original state, or, residents have the option to hire an approved landscaper to maintain their garden. 5. St. John’s management may determine that a home’s gardens/shrubs need to be refreshed; consequently, administration will partner with the resident to review options for the identified space in need of a refresh. St. John’s Grounds Services will perform the work. 6. When necessary repairs to the resident garden, plantings, and other related landscaping occur, the resident may call the Grounds Services department to submit a repair request. 7. Residents are asked to advise St. John’s Grounds Services department if they would prefer to care for their own gardens and plantings.

PET POLICY Residents are welcome to have a pet provided the pet is trained and well behaved. The resident must be able to care appropriately for their pet (i.e., feeding, exercise, proper waste disposal, grooming, and general medical care). The following pet policy must be adhered to for the safety and well-being of all residents: • All dogs must have current shots for rabies, canine hepatitis, distemper, and canine parvovirus and possess a current license. All cats require vaccines for rabies, rhinotracheitis or feline herpesvirus type I, feline calicivirus, and feline distemper or panleukopenia • A current copy of vaccinations must be provided to St. John’s management to be kept in the resident’s file • All pets must conform to the pet definition in the lease. Any resident choosing to have a pet will pay the applicable pet damage deposit as described in the Pet Agreement for • Pets are not allowed to run free on the grounds and must be leashed when outdoors • Pets are not permitted in the Briarwood dining room or the Market Cafe at any time • Pet owners will use proper judgment when walking with their pets within the shared public spaces of the community.

• Residents should ask management about the availability of pet resources if maintaining compliance with St. John’s pet policy becomes difficult. • All pet complaints should be registered with the Vice President of Senior Housing or Executive Assistant • Management reserves the right to refuse to allow a resident to maintain a pet due to non-compliance with St. John’s pet policy.
