Barbecue Grill Usage Regulations for Residents of Gainesville, Florida Apartments

From hamburgers on Independence Day to shish kabobs on Halloween, any time is a good time for cooking food on an outdoor grill. This is especially true in a climate like the one we enjoy in Gainesville, Florida, where mild to hot temperatures are possible throughout the year.

Generally speaking, residents of Gainesville, Florida apartments are allowed to use outdoor grills in their communities. However, due to local fire codes, the use of these grills is restricted in some ways.

Therefore, before you arrange your vittles and light the grill, please keep the following outdoor grill rules in mind:

  • LP gas grills and the storage of LP gas are not allowed in apartment communities.
  • You may use a charcoal grill as long as the grill is placed at least 15 feet away from buildings before it is lit.
  • Grills may not be used on balconies, patios, walkways, landings, stairwells, or breezeways.

The above policies are not intended to limit anyone’s fun. On the contrary, outdoor grill rules were put into place to protect residents from the very real danger of fires in multifamily dwellings.

If you have questions about outdoor grill usage at your apartment community, contact your management staff.

“The scenery and space is amazing. The apartment leasing staff and maintenance staff are wonderful. I love that its a gated community and all though it's family and student oriented it's still extremely quiet.”
“This is a quiet gated community with nice apartments located in a great area.”
“We just moved in about a month ago. We had maintenance in so many times trying to get things set up for my disabled son - but they never complained. The grounds are beautiful. The people in the office are always polite and helpful. Very happy here.”
