Leasing Office is Closed
The office will be closed on Wednesday, October 3 for a company function. We will reopen on Thursday with normal business hours. If you should have any maintenance emergency, please dial 919-772-6545 and follow the instructions for emergency maintenance.
If you are wanting to drop off your rent, please utilize the afterhours drop off. It is a gold slot to the right of the front door. You can always pay online by going to www.abberlyplace.com.
That’s what you’ll find at Abberly Place as we host our first Fall Resident party.
Please stop by and bring your little goblins to the Resident Activity Center on October 25th for finger foods and Halloween treats! There will be a costume contest, so dress to impress. Come join the festivities between 6 pm and 8pm.
Trick or Treat
Knock, Knock…Who’s There?
It’s trick or treaters, of course! In our community, we have a system to identify those apartments that will be giving out treats on Halloween. During the week before Halloween, you can pick up a flyer in our office.
On Halloween, just tape that flyer to your front door if you want trick or treaters to come knocking. Likewise, your little goblins should only visit the apartments that have the flyer displayed. We wish everyone a fun-filled and safe Halloween!
Fall Landscaping Changes
As the leaves change, so do the flowers through out the community. You will notice in the next couple weeks we will be transitioning to fall/winter flowers. We will also begin aerating and over seeding through the community next week.
Don’t be alarmed by the cork shaped plugs through out, it is a necessary process to keep everything green and pretty. We will also be touching up mulch through the community too. We love keeping Abberly Place green!
Water Rate Increase
The City or Raleigh, with permission of the North Carolina Utility Commission, has approved an increase in water bills. You will see a slight increase in your water bill that you will receive towards the end of September. Water usage is going from $2.95 to $3.02 per CCF. Sewer Cost is going from $2.91 to $3.35 per CCF. The Monthly Administrative Fee for Phase 1 is going from $4.94 to $5.07 and the Monthly Administrative Fee for Phase 2 is going from $4.96 to $5.11.
City of Raleigh made this decision and we have no control over it. We just wanted to inform everyone so that you won’t be alarmed by the increase.

It's Nice To Share....
The holidays are coming quickly and everyone looks forward to the great feasts that we enjoy during those times. Certain people in every family are in charge of making their "special" dish for the celebration and they take pride in doing so.
What is your special dish? Do you wish to share with your neighbors? We would love to hear some of your recipes and what you do to put your personal touch on it. Please email us your recipe for a main dish, casserole or dessert and we will choose from them and post one each month in our Newsletter. If you wish, we can include your first name in the article or leave it anonymous. Please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can drop it in our drop box at the office. We look forward to some yummy ideas!
