Television and satellite antennas, flagpoles and other exterior furnishings that do not meet the following requirements are strictly prohibited and any non-complying attachments must be promptly removed.

Objects or fixtures mounted on a balcony or any part of the building are prohibited.  Riverbay may allow exterior furnishings which are items not affixed to the building or permanently mounted on a balcony or railings where in conformance with the following regulations:

No Drilling


To prevent water damage and structural problems, cooperators may not drill into or damage any exterior wall surface, balcony floor, balcony railing or any other building surface for any purpose including attaching fixtures or antennas of any kind.


Electronic Grounding


All electronics and electrical equipment of any kind, including satellite dishes, must be properly grounded.




1.  Device shall be installed by a professional installer in compliance   with manufacturer's specifications and Riverbay's safety rules.

2.  Devices must be portable and positioned so as not to create a safety hazard.

3.  Devices must rest on balcony surface and be able to resist the forces of wind.

4.  No device shall impair the signals of other devices or any other type of signal.




Should device be removed, the cooperator shall restore premises to condition it was in prior to installation, wear and tear excepted. 




Cooperator is responsible for any damage caused directly or indirectly by the device or installation or removal of the device.


Safety Agreement


Cooperators must receive Riverbay's approval to install and maintain a satellite dish by submitting a complete Satellite Dish Safety Agreement to their CSO no later than three (3) business days after the installation of a satellite dish, along with a non-refundable administrative fee of $25.00.  The Satellite Dish Safety agreement may be obtained from your CSO.




Should any provision of this Safety Notice be found to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect.


NOTE:  Cooperators without a southern exposure cannot receive signals to their satellite dishes.  In southern exposure apartments without balconies, cooperators can only set up a dish antenna wholly within their apartment and hope their dish can pick up a signal through a window.
