Hi Sharon and all - Eastern Village is working on a walkway policy for our outdoor balconies right now. The point person for the policy is an architect with an eclectic eye for the artistic, so the group is pretty much trusting him for now. It may be that since we are starting so early on this, it will be less of an issue later. The style he's recommending is sort of eclectic folk-art (we're in a state tax credit area for arts and entertainment, so we can purchase such art easily in the area). The way we designed our courtyard space, there is no obvious way for first floor residents to expand their "territory" into community planted space. And walkways and balconies allow only minimal room after allowing for passageway wide enough for a wheelchair. I gather someone is exploring how people with exterior doors can hang art on the outside wall next to them without damaging the building's skin. Art is already appearing next to apartment doors that open into interior space. For example, I hung a Mexican tiled mirror outside my door, facing into common space by the elevators, and someone on the fourth floor has a doormat, framed picture and a wreath outside their doorway. I think our idea is to try to have fun with this, and invoke our mediation policy if anything gets sticky.
