POSTED JANUARY 19, 2021
Being the kind of neighbor you want to have is the ultimate golden rule to living in a multi-unit community. We all know the basics, many of which may be addressed in your board rules and guidelines, but we're still adjusting to a new normal, which means that the ways in which we show respect and support for our neighbors have changed at a time when doing so is more important than ever. Take a look at the following guidelines to check your current rating on the good neighbor scale.
• Enter and exit your building quietly. In messy weather, remove as much sludge, mud and snow from shoes and boots as possible before entering.
• Keep a check on music, TV, voices, and heels on wood floors. Be even more sensitive to noise on balconies, in hallways and other shared areas. Your board rules may include "quiet hours" which of course you should comply with, but most of us are home more often these days, so exercise care accordingly.
• Respect what may be new rules about occupancy in common areas and clean up thoroughly after every use.
• When you cook or smoke (cigarette/marijuana) something that emits a strong odor, do what you can (open windows, power on the exhaust fan, etc.) to prevent the smell from seeping into the hallway.
• Park thoughtfully. If you have assigned spaces, stick to yours and make sure you give those on either side a reasonable amount of room.
• Don't assume that all residents are pet lovers. Some may even be fearful, so watch your pet to make sure it does not approach people you don't know. And of course, clean up conscientiously. Do what you can to prevent excessive barking, especially during early and late hours.
• Make a point of checking in with neighbors who are at high-risk for developing Covid-19. Call or leave a note to ask if there's anything you can pick up to prevent them from having to go out.
• Get contact info for elderly neighbors (and for their relatives if a neighbor lives alone). Start a group email/text message circle to check in and help each other as needed. Help those less savvy with the technology support required to maintain contact with others.
Not everyone is going to live according to the good neighbor guidelines offered above so how do you go about handling problems? Click here for some tips on dealing with difficult people.

Whispering Lake's Location
Minutes from major roadways, stores, and schools, yet far from the urban sprawl, the property is nestled in a tranquil setting in southeastern Lake County. This Townhome community of 84 homes is located in one of the most desirable suburbs, right on Waukegan Road (Route 43) just south of Buckley Road (Route 137). The entrance to Abbott Laboratories is directly across Waukegan Road.
This development provides residents with many commercial and cultural amenities of the North Shore such as downtown centers of Lake Bluff and Lake Forest, Hawthorn Shopping Center, Gurnee Mills, and Northbrook Court. Recreational facilities such as Independence Grove, Illinois State Beach Park, Great America, and the Botanic Gardens are located nearby. Educational institutions include the Libertyville School District, Lake Forest College, Rosalind Franklin University and College of Lake County.
It is close to major railway systems such as the Lake Bluff and the Lake Forest Chicago and Northwestern Commuter Rail Stations, and the Libertyville Milwaukee Road Commuter Rail Station. It is also close to major expressways the Tri-State 94, Route 41 and the Edens Expressway, giving residents close access to Wisconsin and the metropolitan area of the City of Chicago.
