New Residents

If you have just closed on the sale of a Unit or have signed a lease, you are probably anxious to get moved into Pacific Tower.  Welcome!  We want you to enjoy your new home.  You are about to move into a beautiful, secure building alongside several dozen other Unit owners who each have a personal and financial stake in this property.  Thus, moving into your new residence requires more steps and more coordination than simply loading a moving truck and arriving at the front door.  The first step to getting moved in is to visit the CDC Management office to complete the administrative requirements.  CDC will let you know when your documents are complete and the next steps for your move into Pacific Tower.  Your move date needs to be scheduled with a PTCA Board member who will show you how to accomplish your move without compromising building security or incurring fines for damages or other violations.  Please be aware that we need advance notice of approximately five (5) business days to schedule your moveYou should find the document called "New Resident Information" very useful for easing your move. Remember, All moves into or out of the building must be scheduled in advance through CDC Management. The New Resident Information document should be provided to you either by the Management Company along with the resale certificate or by your landlord if you are a lessee or Special Occupant.  

 Replacing Your Appliances

Heat producing appliances in our building, (kitchen range, clothes dryer, furnace and hot water heater) op-erate on 208 Volts of electricity, not the usual 240 Volts found in single family homes. If you are thinking about buying new appliances, be sure they are 208 volts. Ordinary 240 volt appliances will not work efficiently in Pacific Towers. You may be dissatisfied with their per-formance. If you are thinking about taking your condo appliances out to some other location, they may not work if the home is wired for 240 volts. A 208 volt appliance may burn out if plugged into a 240 volt outlet. There is also a danger of causing a fire.

Trash Containers

Remember that the trash containers at Pacific Tower are strictly reserved for collection of trash generated at Pacific Tower by residents of Pacific Tower.  Do not deposit trash generated from anywhere outside Pacific Tower property.  We all pay for this service through our annual assessment.  Please be a good neighbor. 

 NOTE: New Cardboard Recycle in the P-1 Garage.  Please break down and take all your cardboard here for recycle.

Pet Owners

The Association Management Documents require that pets be Registered                                                (PET REGISTRATION FORM ) and on a leash at all times when on the property anywhere outside your unit.  Please remember also that the maximum number of pets is 2 per unit and the maximum combined weight of pets is 40 pounds:  This includes visiting pets.  PTCA will enforce these requirements.  Please cooperate for the betterment of our community. Please do not allow your pet to relieve itself within 25 feet of any entrance or anywhere inside the building including stairwells and garage levels. Remember to always clean up after your pet.

Leasing Requirements

If you wish to lease out your unit, please remember that you are required by the declaration to get in touch with the Management company and provide a lease before any resident can move in. There is a cap on number of rentals allowed.  Email Jeanette Fournier at:  Jeanette.Fournier@cdcmanagement.com , and she will forward you the procedures and copies of all documents needed.  Did you know that the City of Tacoma requires you to have an annual business license and pay the annual license fee if you rent or lease your unit?  Please review the license requirements prior to contacting Jeanette Fournier.  It is the owner's responsibility to keep all leases current.
