Regency Tower Condominium Association PoliciesRules and Regulations for Owners’ Family Members, Guests and Tenants
The Regency Tower Condominium Association welcomes you. The Condominium rules and regulations listed below have been established to provide reasonable structure for our community and to support a safe and pleasant environment. Their purpose is to guide conduct, maximize the enjoyment and safety of everyone in the Regency community.
Owners’ family members, guests, and tenants should become familiar with the rules and regulations. They will also be responsible for ensuring the children in their care follow the rules and regulations.
Any questions about these rules and regulations should be directed to the unit owner, rental agent or Regency Tower Condominium staff. As necessary, the Board of Trustees will be informed of concerns and will interpret, explain and enforce the rules.
Fifth Avenue Entrance – Use the 5th Avenue entrance when arriving, registering or leaving AND FOR GOING TO AND FROM THE BEACH. For convenience carts and luggage racks are available to transport luggage, groceries and personal items. Please return the carts and luggage racks to the 5th Avenue outside storage area immediately after each use so they are available for others to use. Please do not leave them in the halls, units or elevators.
After enjoying the beach and before entering the building, please wash off sand at the 5th Avenue faucet. Please do not bring sandy towels or blankets into the building. Store them in your vehicle.
For the safety of small children or infants occupied strollers are permitted in the main lobby. If a stroller has been at the beach and has sand on the wheels, please first wash the wheels at the 5th Avenue spigot to remove the sand before bringing the stroller into the building. The floor of the lobbies is tile. Please be aware and be careful about creating wet or slippery spots that could cause someone to slip and fall. Please keep strollers off of the rug in the lobby.
Balconies – Children must not be left alone on balconies. Climbing on or poking through a balcony railing is unsafe and strictly prohibited. Hanging anything or shaking anything over balcony railings is not permitted.

Bicycles must be placed in the bicycle racks and may not be left in or obstruct walk areas; bicycles may not be brought into the building. Bicycles not left in racks will be removed, and locks or chains securing them will be cut. The Regency Tower Condominium Association assumes no responsibility for the safety or security of bicycles.
Computers and Telephone Lines – The Regency Tower has an in-house telephone system for the convenience of owners, guests and tenants. There are five (5) house telephone lines with extensions in each unit to handle in-coming and out-going calls. The in-house telephone system is to be used as follows:

Only with the owner’s permission and an OWNER INSTALLED private telephone line may that private telephone line be used for Internet access.
Internet Lounge – The Internet Lounge located in the main lobby is a Regency Towers wireless “hot spot” providing high speed access to the Internet as a service for owners. The Lounge also contains an internet connected desktop computer and printer for owners who do not have a laptop. The Lounge may be used to receive and send eMail from your existing personal eMail account and to also surf the Internet. This service is not intended as a replacement for having your own Internet access or email account but is provided as a convenience for temporary limited use.
Individual laptop internet connection setup details will vary slightly based on your computer and its operating system. Our internet connection is a secure encrypted connection. Access codes and the encryption key are located on the Regency website under Owners Area.
Access to the Internet Lounge and use of the internet connection is restricted to unit owners only and a usage log is maintained. Do not provide the Lounge door code or the internet encryption key to your renters or guests. This is an adult-only Lounge and children are not allowed. We ask that the computers not be used for Internet game playing or for visiting or downloading material from adult sites.
Fire Code Regulations – The City of North Wildwood has important and stringent fire code regulations that affect the Regency Tower. The North Wildwood Fire Department physically inspects units and equipment on an annual basis.
Each unit MUST have an approved functioning smoke detector and a fire extinguisher with a current date tag. The extinguisher must be in plain sight or a sign displayed to identify its location.
There are also fire extinguishers on each floor of the main, east and west stairwells and fire alarm pull handles in the hallways. TAKE THE TIME TO NOTICE WHERE THIS FIRE SAFETY EQUIPMENT IS LOCATED. The North Wildwood Fire Department requires the building be evacuated in case of a fire.
IMPORTANT: If you are cooking and create smoke in your unit, open your balcony slider for ventilation. Please do not open your hallway door. Hallways have sensitive smoke detectors connected to the North Wildwood Fire Department; if they sound or are activated, the entire building must be evacuated, and fire engines will be dispatched to the Regency Tower. If you have a fire or emergency in your unit, use the house phone; dial 9 for an outside line and then dial 911 and report the situation. Follow the direction of the North Wildwood Fire Department, leave, shut the door on the way out of the unit and evacuate the building.

These laundry facilities will be replaced in July 2009 with stack washers and dryers that require prepaid swipe cards to use. These cards can be purchased from a machine in the security area on the first floor. Please be considerate of others and promptly remove laundry. The Regency Tower Condominium Association is not responsible for personal clothing or items left in the laundry rooms. If there is a malfunction or question, please contact the Regency Tower staff by dialing zero. This system will be replaced in July 2009, and at that time new instructions on laundry facilities will be posted and distributed.
