Management

Think about the staff and their reputation. How friendly and helpful are they? Is there a roommate selection process? Will they be willing to help if you are not satisfied with your living situation? Also, ask about maintenance staff and their duties. 

tips from ca’s

A few tips from Community Assistants that you just can’t miss out on.

Safety This should be one of your number one priority. You want good lighting and somewhere you will feel safe and comfortable walking outside.

Transportation How developed is the public transportation (light rail or bus system), if needed? In a bind will you be able to get to work and school easily? These are all important questions whether you have access to a vehicle or not.

Price

It’s important to think about how much you can afford. Can you pay rent by yourself ? Are utilities included? Will you split the costs with roommates? Utilities can often add up to $30 to $100 per month.

Privacy

Privacy can be a key factor in deciding which living situation is best for you. Do you want your own bathroom? Are you comfortable living with strangers or roommates in general?

Atmosphere

Some communities do not adhere to quiet hours and cleanliness as much as others. Are there designated study rooms? Are all units in one building or multiple buildings where you can stay clear of some noise?

Location

Think about convenience. If you move far from campus, will you go to class? How walkable is the area? Review the WalkScore for the closest stores, food, etc.

Environmentally Conscious

Being environmentally conscious goes beyond recycling. Take note of high-efficiency appliances, green fixtures (lights, faucets, etc.), window shades and electric vehicle stations.

Amenities

Think about your lifestyle before getting sold on high-priced amenities you may or may not use. Does the gym offer equipment you use regularly? Consider a fully furnished living space vs. purchasing furniture on your own.

Pets

A pet friendly environment can be tricky. It is great to be able to have pets but be sure to ask about any restrictions or pet fees. Are there outdoor areas? Be considerate of neighbors with regards to noise and cleanliness of your pets.


Love everything about my apartment! Exactly what I expected it to be, and a great view of Tempe and our amazing pool! Very grateful to be living here!

Students Say “Goodbye” to Dorms BY RASHINDA BANKHEAD @Rashindaa

Dorms have been the norm for numerous students this year, but for many it is time to make the transition to student apartment housing. Journalism freshman Cara Popeski is one of those students.   When Popeski moved from her hometown of Tucson into the dorms this year, she said it was both exhilarating and nerve-wracking.   “The very first night living away from home, I was so excited to finally have a chance to not live in the same house I grew up in with my family, and then I ended up having a really hard time falling asleep just that first night (staying in the dorms),” she said.   Popeski said she really enjoyed living in the dorms this year and has met many people through the process. “Being in the dorms has been really fun just because that’s where I’ve met the majority of my friends,” she said.   The dorm was an ideal stepping-stone from living at home with parents to having freedom, but not all the responsibility, she added.   “It’s kind of nice because it’s like a medium step from going between living at home to being completely on your own,” she said. “I feel the independence of not being with my family but I also still have food whenever I need it and I’m not in charge of taking care of an entire house. I have one room like I did at home.” Now that the time has come to move out of the dorm, Popeski said she is looking forward to having her own space in the student aparment housing. There is one thing Popeski is especially looking forward to.

“I am really excited about having my own kitchen, and I’m glad that it’s so close to campus,” she said. Biology freshman Mckenzie Liberty-Bibbens is also going to be making the move to student apartment housing. The main things that Liberty-Bibbens is looking forward to are things that students living with family might take for granted. “I am really, really excited to have my own room and bathroom and to have a kitchen … it will be nice to make our own food,” she said.   Reach the reporter at Rashinda.bankhead@asu.edu


Personal Safety The Tempe Police Departments, Crime Prevention Unit would like to provide you with 3 basic personal safety rules and the following crime prevention information: • Do stay alert. Keep your mind on your surroundings, who’s in front of you and who’s behind you. Don’t get distracted. If you’re worried about crime ask a friend to accompany you when you go out. • Do communicate the message that you’re calm, confident, and know where you’re going. Stand tall, walk purposefully, and make quick eye contact with people around you. • Do trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable in a place or situation…leave.

In Your Home: • Keep your doors locked, even when you are home. • You should not automatically open your door when someone knocks, especially if you’re alone. Know who is outside – use the eyeviewer. • Keep your windows locked when you are away and while sleeping. • When away or at home, draw your blinds or curtains to prevent prowlers from seeing your valuables. • Never remain in the laundry room in an apartment community alone. • Avoid dark places, short cuts, bushy trees, and sparsely traveled areas.

When Walking: • Plan the safest route to your destination and use it. Choose well lit busy streets and avoid using vacant lots, alleys, or construction sites. Take the long way if it’s the safest. • Know your neighborhood. Find out what stores and restaurants are open late and where the police and fire stations are. • Carry your purse close to your body and keep a firm grip on it. Carry a wallet in an inside coat or side trouser pocket, not in a rear trouser pocket. • Don’t flaunt expensive jewelry or clothing. • Walk facing traffic so you can see approaching cars. • Don’t overburden yourself with packages and groceries that make it hard to react. • Bring “emergency” change for cab fare, bus fare, or a telephone call. • Have your car or house key in hand as you approach your vehicle or home. • If you suspect you’re being followed by someone on foot, cross the street and head for the nearest well lit, populated area. Walk quickly or run to a house or store to call police. • If you are being followed by someone in a car, change direction immediately and make a visible point of writing down the license number.

Take Action Today! If you see a crime being committed, call the police immediately at 9-1-1. Be sure to report all suspicious activity to our non emergency line at (480) 350-8311. You and your neighbors are safe when you look out for each other! Safety Escort Service Many students attend evening courses or stay after hours on campus. As part of its Campus Safety Initiative, the ASU Parents Association supports the operational costs of the Safety Escort Service on the Tempe campus of ASU. The Safety Escort Service shuttles students to any ASU Tempe campus building during evening hours. Call ahead or visit the Safety Escort Service Web site for the most up-to-date schedule. Don’t want an escort? Be sure to travel around campus with others.

Life on the Light Rail A guide to the Valley Metro light rail By Jonah Hersch What has the light rail offered me? Choosing an apartment community that was close to public transportation was important to me, that’s why I chose to live at Apache Station. Living at Apache Station I am able to take the light rail virtually anywhere that I want to go, even though I have a car I still prefer to use the light rail. Aside from the benefits to saving money on gas, reducing pollution, and less wear and tear on your car, to me the light rail offers an easier alternative than driving. When I am going to work or school I can use that time to read or do some extra studying. Additionally, if I want to go out on the weekends I can do so safely knowing that I can enjoy my night and not have to worry about any drunk drivers that may be on the road. What is the U-Pass? The U-Pass is a transit pass offered by Valley Metro and Parking & Transit Services at ASU. It is an alternative to paying for a parking pass and dealing with tight parking spaces, and valid on any public transportation offered by Valley Metro, including: the light rail and bus systems, LINK, RAPID and Express bus systems. The U-Pass can be up to half the cost of a traditional parking pass, and offer a greener mode of transportation while saving money on gas and parking. What can the light rail do for you? There are many great places that are accessible by light rail throughout the Phoenix area, and there are e3xtensions planned to extend that reach. There are many exciting sporting venues that can be reached by the light rail including the basketball and baseball stadiums in downtown, as well as what ASU has to offer. For those students who travel home for the holidays, Sky Harbor Airport is a short ride on the light rail from Tempe. Some other places that are right on the light rail include the

Mesa Arts Centre via the new extension into Mesa, the Phoenix Marquee Theatre, Mill Ave, Downton Phoenix and Mesa, as well as the Tempe Improv theatre. Places such as the Phoenix Zoo and Botanical Gardens offer great student discounts and are just a short light rail and bus ride from Tempe, both offer a great escape for students feeling overwhelmed or looking for a relaxing break. Valley Metro also has extensions planned to enhance Phoenix’s public transit system. For example, starting in 2017 development will begin of the Tempe Streetcar, a light rail type system that will add a transit line from Terrace and Apache Blvd. to Marina Heights on Rio Salado Parkway, the route will split and travel up Mill and Ash Ave from Apache to Rio Salado. This will allow students to get much closer to the southern and east side of campus via this route, instead of walking from the existing station on Rural and University. Saftey tips while riding the light rail: •Travel with at least a couple friends at night. •Be aware of your surroundings (i.e. safety call buttons, emergency exits, anything out of the normal etc.) •If you are feeling worried ride in the front car closer to the driver’s cabin for comfort. •Stay in well-lit areas at the light rail stations. •Always keep at least one ear bud out so you can hear important announcements. •Be kind and courteous to your fellow passengers. •The security officers are there for your protection, be respectful.

Confessions of a

Lazy Organizer


I am a freak, and I’m OK with that. I work in a business that takes a stubborn pride in its slovenliness. From where I sit, I can see disheveled bookshelves, teetering piles of paper and bulletin boards littered with fliers for events that happened months ago. Then there’s my desk. It’s not exactly spare, but it’s pretty tidy. The notes and documents for stories I’m working on are squirreled away in folders in an upright file. My books are corralled in a crate. When I need a pen or a phone number or a pair of scissors, I know where to find it. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. I’m obsessive and regimented. It’s OK. Those of us who live by color-coded calendars are used to that stereotype. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I’m organized because I’m lazy. Believe me, I wasn’t born with a penchant for labeled storage boxes. I’ll choose play over work anytime. And if something isn’t important to me, I have a dangerous tendency to put it out of my mind. Seriously. My college roommate once drew me a map to our dorm’s Dumpster because I kept neglecting to empty the trash. But I learned long ago that laziness was an awful lot of work. Forgetting an appointment meant phone calls and apologies and rejuggling of schedules. Letting papers pile up meant wasted time searching frantically for notes on deadline or having to track down information a second time. Leaving my stuff around the house meant marathon cleaning sessions when I’d rather be having fun.

like the type of ink cartridge my printer uses or the dimensions of that space on the wall where I need just the right size mirror. So when I’m out shopping, I have that information with me. This didn’t happen overnight. I got there one baby step at a time. I can’t make you organized in one column, but I can give you a piece of advice: Start by tackling the one thing that bothers you most. If it’s the heap of shoes that accumulates by the door, figure out a system for storing them _ a shoe rack, maybe, or a big basket. If it’s the jumbled utensil drawer that won’t close, cull out the duplicates and the things you don’t need, and then measure the drawer and buy dividers that fit. If it’s lost car keys, mount a key rack or place a basket where you’ll see it whenever you enter the house, and get in the habit of always putting your keys there. There are plenty of books, magazine articles and websites out there to help you and give you ideas. I think you’ll find that once you achieve one small success, you’ll want to keep going. But you may be surprised by how much of your time you’ll get back.

Who has the energy? So, little by little, I’ve forced myself to get organized. And you know what? It’s way easier than being disorganized. It takes only a few extra seconds to put something back where I got it, when it used to take me a half-hour to tidy up the house before I could even start cleaning. When I’m opening the mail, it’s no bother to jot a bill’s due date on the envelope and stick it into the desktop organizer that sits on my kitchen counter, where I can see the bills every day and be reminded when they’re due. It takes a few moments to transfer the particulars about an event or an errand to my calendar, but then I don’t have to keep lots of papers or waste time tracking down details. My smartphone makes organizing even easier. I keep my calendar there, which I can sync with computerized calendars at work and at home and even share with my husband. I can send myself reminders or set my alarm clock so I don’t have to worry about missing birthdays or dentist’s appointments. I keep an errand list, a grocery list and a list of all those hard-to-remember details,

Loud Party Concerns Tempe has a vitality that is unmatched in the valley. Arizona State University, Mill Avenue, and huge city sponsored events. Private parties are also frequent, as are noise complaints. The Tempe Police responded to over 8,000 loud party/noise complaints for the year 2004! These complaints often result in the person responsible for the party receiving a fine or a citation. What is a “loud party”? A loud party is a gathering that disturbs the peace of another. It does not actually have to be a traditional party to qualify. Parties often bring related problems such as noise complaints, loud vehicles and their stereos, neighborhood litter, and misbehavior such as urinating in public. The info below gives information on how loud parties are handled by the Tempe Police. What to do if you are planning a party: • Notify neighbors of the planned party. If the neighbors are not supportive, change the location or nature of the party. • Consider neighbors when planning your party. • Control who is invited and admitted to your party. • During your party, periodically check your neighborhood to correct problems. You may be responsible for what takes place off of your property as a result of your party. Pick up trash and correct any other problems. • If you lose control of your party, end it yourself. If you are unsuccessful in ending it, call the police. The police will assist you. • If the police show up at your party, fully cooperate with them. Your cooperation may keep you from getting fined or cited. • Do not mix alcohol and underage party attendees. The two do not go together, and could lead to civil and criminal consequences. What to do when neighbors are planning a party: • Express concerns early. When you discover a planned party for your neighborhood, discuss your concerns with the responsible person. • When you learn of a party call the Tempe Police non-emergency number and give the information to on-duty personnel. • If the party is going on and concern arises, contact the responsible person if you feel comfortable doing so.

• Be tolerant. Your ongoing relationship with your neighbor may be more important than a single event, even if your routine is challenged for one night. • If the property is a rental, notify the landlord yourself in writing. This assures the landlord knows what is happening. Rental properties are required by law to register with the Maricopa County Assessor’s Office. Their website is www.maricopa.gov/assessor. When to call the police: • When all else fails, call Tempe Police and report the disturbance. • If you are not willing to identify yourself or be listed as a victim in a police report, police will still respond, but the incident will be handled as a civil matter. Other remedies: If the residence you are calling about is an on going problem, there are other remedies that could solve the concerns. Several options include: • Refer ongoing problems to your area Crime Prevention officer. Your officer can be reached by calling (480) 858-6330 or by clicking on www.tempe. gov/cpu • Consider mediation. This is a free service through the City of Tempe’s Social Services Department. Set an appointment by calling (480) 350-2430. The website is www.tempe.gov/social services. Arizona State Law Arizona State law states that a person commits the crime of Disorderly Conduct by making unreasonable noise that disturbs the peace and quiet of another person. (A.R.S. 13-2904) A person believed to have committed disorderly conduct may be arrested or cited. If found guilty, that person could be sentenced up to four months in jail and given a $750 fine for a first offense. To charge someone with Disorderly Conduct, the courts require that a citizen allow police to put his/her name in the police report and testify as a victim. No report will be taken if there is no victim.

Surviving & Thriving Without a Car MINNEAPOLIS — I sold my car. And I have no plans to buy another one. It was a hard decision — and something of a radical one in Minnesota, where cars are a staple. In fact, it took me many months to ease out of my Subaru Impreza and to prove to myself that I really didn’t need it. Now, two months after selling my car and nearly a year since I stopped driving it, I no longer worry about traffic or parking, my wallet is thankful, I’m in better shape and I feel much more connected to my adopted city. So, how do I get around? My primary modes of transportation are buses (in the winter) and bicycling (in the summer), interspersed with a lot of walking. But I credit two tools for getting me to take the plunge: car sharing and my smartphone. For a long time, I held onto my car because I wondered “What if ?” What if I have to make a large purchase at Target or pick up a lot of groceries? What if I need to get somewhere quickly? With expanding options from Hourcar, Zipcar, Car2Go and taxi-like services such as Lyft and UberX, I’ve discovered I can find a ride whenever I need one — as long as I have my phone with me. The other night as I left work, for example, I checked Minneapolis Metro Transit’s mobile site for the arrival time of the next bus traveling down Nicollet Avenue. Within minutes, I hopped the bus from downtown to a friend’s improv show on 37th Street. Later that evening, after dinner at a nearby restaurant, I checked the same site and learned that there wasn’t another bus for an hour. Instead of waiting, I opened another app and found that a Car2Go ride-share vehicle was just around the corner. I drove home, locked the car and left it on the street for the next Car2Go user to find. The ride cost me less than $6 — a marginal cost after subtracting the expense of maintaining a vehicle. I had never owned a car — nor driven one for very long — before arriving in Minneapolis four years ago. In both Washington, D.C., where I had been working, and

New York City, where I grew up, owning a car isn’t the norm, in part because both cities have expansive transit systems. Knowing I’d need to have a car in Minnesota, I hired a driving instructor in Washington to help me brush up on my technique. I drove at night for the very first time when I peeled out of the dealership lot in White Bear Lake, Minn., in my used car. For a while, I was hooked on the novelty of driving. After about two years, though, I started to question my car logic. The winter only seemed longer as I scraped off my windshield, lonelier when I was sitting alone in traffic. It was worse during the precious warm months in Minneapolis: I yearned to be outside. Owning a car seemed limiting, and not worth the money. “I think we’re tied to our cars so that people refuse to go to certain parts of the city because they don’t want to park, they don’t want to pay for parking or they have to leave somewhere early because their car is parked in a certain spot,” said Bill Lindeke, the carless host of the transportation-focused streets.mn podcast. “And in a way, the car sort of owns the person, instead of the other way around.” I have no children, I live along a bus line in Uptown and work downtown, about 4 miles away. My company has a few vehicles for work-related trips during the day. Yet I was still one of 61 percent of Minneapolis residents driving to work solo. Last spring, I bought a bike and started riding to work. Come fall, I got serious about understanding the bus system. Late this past winter, I took the Subaru to a carwash, took some photos of my car, then sold it on Craigslist. Ride sharing For grocery runs and trips to the suburbs, I have access to a Zipcar near my house, which must be returned to the location it was taken from. (Locally owned Hourcar has a similar model.) For short trips, I use Car2Go.


Of course, it made little sense to pay $9-$10 an hour (or about 46 cents a minute in the case of Car2Go) to rent a car when I was already paying more than $300 a month for loan payments, insurance, gas and parking for my own vehicle. Subtract my vehicle, however, and the occasional cost of car sharing has quickly become negligible. On average, I make only two or three Car2Go trips per month, but the peace of mind of knowing the services exist is enough for me to rely on the bus system during the colder months. Becoming a biker The Minneapolis bike infrastructure has grown rapidly, but I’ll be the first to admit that becoming a bike commuter was a bit intimidating. It took time to determine what kind of bike to purchase, locate the best routes and learn the etiquette. (Raising your left hand to signal a right turn was a bit baffling at first.) I’d never been that into biking, so each ride was a lesson. Google Maps bike directions were often my best guide. And only recently did I discover the wisdom of attaching saddle bags to transport groceries or hold a spare jacket. Bike commuting requires more thought about the weather than driving does, though I can take the bus or use a bus bike rack in the event of rain — something New York City doesn’t have. Parking is plentiful and traffic — apart from stoplights — is nonexistent, especially on the side roads I frequent. Getting on board Busing was also somewhat complicated at first. I first had to purchase a GoTo card, Metro Transit’s bus pass, at a local grocery store. Hopping on the No. 6 outside my house to get downtown for work was easy, but what if I want to go to some obscure address outside of my normal route? Bus stops in Minneapolis provide woefully little information about where buses go. For a new user, it’s enough to keep you in your car. “The transit system works reasonably well if you’re going to go downtown, or to one of the downtowns,” said professor David Levinson, a transportation expert at the University of Minnesota. “There’s relatively fewer cross-connections. So if you’re not going to downtown, but you want to go from Point A to Point B, Car2Go might very well be faster.” Are there hiccups with taking the bus? Sure. Is it colder waiting for the bus? Yes. But it was a lot warmer after I bought a better coat, wore long underwear and wrapped my head in a scarf. Taking the bus helped me discover something rare in the Twin Cities: a public environment where strangers occasionally talk to each other.

Bus interactions aren’t always pleasant, particularly when alcohol is involved, but observing and encountering a variety of people on a daily basis is one of the things that makes city life so interesting. Not for everyone Going carless isn’t for everyone, of course. I happen to live along a transit corridor and not far from where I work. Many people have long commutes to and from the suburbs and rely on their cars to get their children to the soccer game and the orthodontist. “Kids plus no car seems like a Triple Lindy level of difficulty,” one Twitter follower told me when I asked about managing without a car. Not everyone has the mobility to ride a bike, and the bus system isn’t convenient if you work in a location that’s off the beaten track. “A lot of it just depends on how you arrange your life,” said Levinson, whose five-member family owns one car. But for some urban families, the growing number of transportation options may mean the ability to get rid of a car — or even two. They just might find — as I did — the many intangible benefits to becoming car-free.

Crime Free MultiHousing Program Since approximately half of Tempe’s residents live in apartments, the Tempe Police Department’s Crime Analysis Unit produces several reports that document calls for service and crime at Tempe apartment communities with more than twenty units. The information in these reports, as well as other valuable information, can be found on the Crime Analysis Unit’s web site at: www. tempe.gov/cau Calls for Service Reports are produced monthly and rank the communities according to the ratio of citizen generated calls for service per apartment unit. In a citizens-generated call for service, a citizen will call for police assistance and an officer is dispatched to the call. We encourage you to access this information to review all your calls for service for the previous month. This information is being provided to assist you in developing an environment where crime cannot flourish. If you do not have access to the internet, please contact Kathy Groenewold, Crime Free Multi-Housing Coordinator at (480) 858-6337 to obtain a current copy of your calls for service. Steps to Help Secure a Safe Apartment 1. Visit the Tempe Police Department website to view the apartment community calls for service bulletin (crime stats). 2. Inspect the apartment community both day and night for activity. 3. Check the property for curb appeal. Does the management company care about the property? Do they trim the bushes, maintain the lighting, physical appearance gives you the impression someone cares and shows ownership. 4. Interview other residents that reside at the property. Do they feel safe? How does management handle issues? 5. The management company will be interviewing you as a prospective resident. You would want to interview the management company to make sure they meet your expectations. 6. Ask management if they participate in the Crime Free Multi Housing Program. 7. Ask the management if they provide courtesy control.

Help Elimiate Auto Theft Professional thieves can steal any car, but make them work for yours. To prevent thefts, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) and the Arizona Automobile Theft Authority recommends “Layered Protection.” The more layers of protection on your vehicle, the more difficult it is to steal. The number of layers your vehicle needs varies depending on your vehicle and geographic location. Your budget and personal preferences should determine which anti-theft device is best for you. Layer #1 -- Common Sense An unlocked vehicle with a key in the ignition is an open invitation to any thief, regardless of which antitheft device you use. The common sense approach to protection is the simplest and most cost-effective way to thwart would-be thieves. • Lock your car - half of all vehicles stolen are left unlocked • Take your keys - nearly 20% of all vehicles stolen have the keys in them • Park in well-lit areas - car thefts occur at night more than half the time • Park in attended lots - car thieves do not like witnesses • Do not leave your vehicle running and unattended • Completely close your car windows • Do not leave valuables in plain view • Do not hide a spare set of keys in the car - the pros know where to look • If you have a garage, use it - when you do, lock both the vehicle and the garage door Layer #2 -- Warning Device The second layer of protection is a visible or audible device which alerts thieves that your vehicle is protected. Popular second layer devices include: • Audible alarms • Steering wheel locks • Steering column locks • Brake locks • Tire locks • Watch Your Car decals • Identification markers in or on vehicle • Protective Window Laminate • Microdots applied to various surfaces on vehicle, which are imprinted with identification information. • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) etching on vehicle windows.

Layer #3 -- Immobilizing Device This third layer of protection is a device which prevents thieves from bypassing your ignition and hot-wiring the vehicle. Some electronic devices have computer chips in ignition keys. Other devices inhibit the flow of electricity or fuel to the engine until a hidden switch or button is activated. Popular third layer devices include: • Smart keys • High security locks & keys • Fuse cut-offs • Kill switches • Starter, ignition and fuel disablers Layer #4 -- Tracking Device The final layer of protection is a tracking device which emits a signal to a police or monitoring station when the vehicle is reported stolen. Tracking devices are very effective in helping authorities recover stolen vehicles. Passive and Active Anti-Theft Systems Passive and active anti-theft devices are the two options available when considering an anti-theft system. Passive devices automatically arm themselves when the vehicle is turned off, the ignition key removed, or a door is shut. No additional action is required. Active devices require some independent physical action before they are set, such as pushing a button, or placing a “lock” over a vehicle component part. This physical action must be repeated every time the anti-theft devices is set or it will not function. While you may not be able to prevent your vehicle from being stolen, despite every precaution, you can take many of the following steps in advance. Being prepared may ultimately help law enforcement recover your vehicle more quickly and reduce your expenses. • If you discover that your vehicle has been stolen, notify law enforcement immediately. Speed is essential in recovering stolen cars; any delay in reporting only helps the thieves. Be prepared to provide the vehicle’s make, model, color, license plate number, and VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). • Keep a photocopy of your vehicle registration and insurance card in your wallet or at home. This will enable you to provide information quickly to law enforcement and your insurance claims agent. • Make your vehicle easier to identify. One way is to write your initials on an index card and drop it in the window slot, or carefully engrave your initials inside


the trunk, hood, or even the dashboard near the VIN number. • Etch the VIN number on all window glass of the vehicle. • Review your insurance policy annually. Don’t wait until after your vehicle is stolen to find out you don’t have the coverage you think you have. Owners are advised to review their auto insurance policies once a year, including coverage you must have, coverage you’ll probably need, and additional types of coverage, including roadside assistance and rental reimbursement. • Exercise caution if you see someone tampering with your car. Call 911 as quickly as possible. ` Don’t Purchase a Stolen Vehicle • Use Common Sense. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is! • Don’t meet the seller in an unsafe location. Meet at a permanent location of the seller and avoid situations where you can only meet the seller by pager. • Let the seller know you will not be bringing cash, but will pay by personal or cashier’s check if you decide to purchase the vehicle. • Ask the seller for valid picture I.D. and compare the information to the vehicle registration and title. • Be leery of pre-signed ownership documents, or sellers who are not both the registered and legal owners. The documents may be forged, or a lender may have a lien that prevents transfer of title. • If the ownership documents are recently issued or duplicate, the vehicle may have changed hands recently or the title lost. Inquire why! • Check the ownership documents for an indication that the vehicle is a salvage and be very cautious if it is. Many salvage vehicles are rebuilt with stolen parts or are unsafe. Also be alert to these issues if any vehicle appears to have been extensively damaged or rebuilt. • Be sure all numbers match. Look at the numbers on both the Vehicle Identification Number plate and the license plate. They should be the same on both the vehicle registration and title. • Before you pay, be sure documentation is adequate to obtain registration and legal title. Check with the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) first if there is any doubt. Be careful! Cashier’s checks and money orders are not always what they appear to be! Local law enforcement agencies have had numerous cases where counterfeit cashiers checks and money orders are being used to commit forgeries and/or frauds when purchasing a vehicle.

Fire Safety The Tempe Fire Department is concerned about your safety both on and off campus. When choosing offcampus housing, insure that fire safety plays a role in your efforts to choose an apartment, just as you consider crime prevention issues. Since January of 2000, 100 students have died in campus-related fires in the United States, with almost 80 percent occurring in off-campus housing, according to Campus Firewatch, a monthly newsletter focusing on the complex issues of campus fire safety. Four factors have been identified in a number of the off-campus fires: • Lack of automatic fire sprinklers • Missing or disabled smoke alarms • Careless disposal of smoking materials • Impaired judgment from alcohol consumption With ASU being the largest university in the nation, we are not immune from the dangers of fire, as evidenced by two near tragic fires in off-campus housing during the 2006 fall semester. Some or all of the factors identified above were involved in the Tempe fires. One fire involved a condominium in which two students were physically rescued by firefighters and suffered severe smoke inhalation, requiring lengthy stays in the Maricopa County Hospital Burn Unit. In the second serious offcampus fire, one student was seriously injured when she was forced to jump from a second floor patio to escape the flames. There is a great deal of choice when it comes to selecting off-campus housing. Consider the added protection provided by automatic fire sprinklers. Know that smoke detectors are required in all rental housing units in Tempe, and ask that the unit be tested to insure that it is working before you select the apartment. Ask when the last fire inspection was done on the building and do not hesitate to ask to see the Fire Department’s Inspection Form so that you can be knowledgeable about any noted violations of the fire code. Basic steps in fire safety include: • Not sleeping in a building without a working smoke detector. • Know two ways out of any building that you are in, whether it is your house, apartment, theater or night club. • After a party, check seat cushions on couches and

chairs for cigarettes that may be smoldering, and dispose of cigarette butts properly. • Do not overload extension cords if may cause them to overheat. • Make sure you have a fire extinguisher and that you know how to use it. Additionally, you can call the Tempe Fire Department’s Fire Prevention and Public Fire Safety Education Division at 480-858-7200 for additional information and/or to ask for a fire inspection on your living unit at no cost. Choose and maintain a fire safe environment for your residence while attending Arizona State University. The Dangers of Hoarding The issue of residential hoarding is a real problem all around the Valley and Tempe Fire is reaching out to the community to raise awareness of this growing problem and to communicate that help is available. Tempe firefighters have experienced many cases of hoarding. It is a dangerous trend that risks the lives of firefighters and residents alike. People with friends or loved ones who may have a problem with hoarding can seek help from the Arizona Hoarding Task Force at 602-778-3363 or www.azhoarding.com. This collaboration of agencies provides links to research, support groups and personal organization services. Tempe residents also can find help through the city’s Care 7 Victim Assistance program at 480-350-8032 or www.tempe.gov/care7.t How do I report an emergency? A: 9-1-1 is the phone number to call to report a fire, police or medical emergency. 9-1-1 is initially answered by the Tempe Police Department, regardless of the emergency you are reporting. However, if you are reporting a fire or medical emergency, you will immediately be connected to a Fire, Medical, Rescue Department. How often should a fire extinguisher be replaced/serviced? A: There are no requirements for personal residences, but it is recommended that they be visually checked every year to make sure there are no cracks or rust and to make sure the pin is still in the green. After 10 years or so the extinguisher should be replaced.

Our preliminary goals are to: Local and State Lobbying Efforts • Work with NAU, UofA, ASU to lobby the state legislature on behalf of all Arizona university students. • Develop effective campaign strategies to put pressure on key legislators to further our higher education goals.  Guest Speakers • Request that legislators, research analysts at local think tanks, the governor, etc. speak at ASU about higher education issues. • Bring prominent people to campus (i.e., educators, politicians, business leaders, etc.) Increase Voter Registration on Campus • Mall Voter Registration – During USG tabling hours, volunteers will actively reach out to students to register to vote. • Special Events and Guest Speakers – USG and volunteers will register voters at ASU events and Government Relation Training sessions. • Work to secure an early polling site at ASU Tempe.

Tempe Housing Code Requirements Why a Rental Housing Code?: Degree of Consanguinity While most property owners, landlords and property management companies do their best to maintain rental units in safe and healthy conditions, others may neglect needed repairs on their properties. Exterior conditions such as peeling paint, curling roof shingles and dead landscaping may have a negative effect on surrounding property values and breed apathy in a neighborhood. Interior conditions such as adequate cooling and heating, proper plumbing, and correct electrical connections are all necessary to secure the well-being and safety of the tenant. The City of Tempe’s Rental Housing Code was adopted in January 1998 to ensure that rental housing units, both single and multi-family units, remain free of deteriorated and slum-like conditions. The code was not designed to settle landlord-tenant disputes. This information is intended to provide a summary of Tempe’s Rental Housing Code requirements. For specific information or a complete copy of the Rental Housing Code, please contact, Code Compliance at 480-350-4311 or visit www.tempe.gov/code/. The City of Tempe regulates the number of people that can legally occupy a property. In single family dwellings, more than three (3) people that are not related can not live together as a household. Zoning & Development Code defintion: Family means: 1. One (1) or more persons related by the 3rd degree of consanguinity, adoption, marriage or as domestic partners as defined in Section 7-105, and not more than two (2) additional persons living together in a dwelling unit; or 2. Not more than three (3) persons who are not related by the 3rd degree of consanguinity, adoption, marriage or as domestic partners, living together in a dwelling unit. For more information please contact the Code Compliance office at 480-350-4311. Safety and Security For the purpose of safety and security, each and every rental unit within the City is required to meet the following minimum conditions: • Smoke Detectors are required in each unit and must be in working condition at all times. • Locking devises are required for exterior swinging or sliding doors, and on all windows that are designed to be opened and are accessible from the outside. • Every principle entrance door must have an eye

viewer or adjacent window, which allows a view of the area directly in front of the door. • In complexes of more than four units, public stairwells, parking lots, exterior entrances and postal box areas must meet specific lighting requirements for safety purposes. Call for specific information on these requirements.

Sanitary Facilities Every rental housing unit must have sanitary facilities adequate for personal cleanliness, properly installed and maintained, including: Flush toilets, lavatory basins, bathtubs or showers, hot water service of at least 110 degrees, water-seal traps and a reasonable flow of water (not less than one gallon-per-minute).

Kitchen Areas A kitchen sink, oven, stove, and refrigerator are all required and must be in sound condition. A reasonable flow of water and water-seal traps are required. Countertops, pantries and cupboards shall be free from holes, breaks or cracks and the surface must be easily cleanable. Electrical, Lighting and Thermal Environment Every habitable room shall have two outlets and either a permanent light fixture or a third outlet controlled by a wall switch. Permanent light fixtures are required in each laundry room, bathroom and kitchen. Permanently installed heating facilities, able to provide a temperature of at least 70 degrees, and cooling devices, able to provide adequate cooling (dependant upon the unit type) are required. No oven, stove, range or unvented combustion heater may be used for the purpose of heating a unit. Doors, Windows, and Ventilation Specific requirements for doors, windows and ventilation are enumerated in the Rental Housing Code. As a summary, each unit is required to have weathertight exterior doors and windows that provide adequate light and ventilation. Any unit cooled by an evaporative cooler, which is not equipped with upducts, shall have at least one open able exterior opening that is screened. All screens must be in good condition, free from holes, tears or other imperfections. For more information, questions or to register a complaint, please contact: Code Compliance Phone: 480-350-4311 www.tempe.gov/code/
