Nothing shall be stored on the Common Elements without the prior consent of the Board of Directors, except as expressly permitted under the terms of the Condominium Documents. No portion of the Common Elements shall be decorated or furnished by any Unit Owner in any manner. The Common Elements shall be used only for the furnishing of the services and facilities for which the same are reasonably suited and which are incident to the use and occupancy of the Units.

No Unit Owner shall enter upon the roofs of any of the Buildings without the prior consent of the Board of Directors or managing agent and no antennas, satellite dishes or other devices for transmitting or receiving electronic, microwave or similar signals or any other structure, equipment or other similar items may be placed on any roof or in any portion of the Common Elements.
- Nothing shall be done or kept in any of the Common Elements, which will increase the rate of insurance for the Buildings or contents thereof without the prior written consent of the Board of Directors. No Unit Owner shall permit anything to be done or kept in the Unit or on the Common Elements which will result in the cancellation of insurance on the buildings or contents thereof or which would be in violation of any public law, ordinance, or regulation. No gasoline or other explosive or inflammable material may be kept in any Unit or storage area. No waste shall be committed on the Condominium Project. All radio, television or other electrical equipment of any kind or nature installed or used in each Unit shall fully comply with all rules, regulations, requirements or recommendations of the board of fire underwriters and the public authorities having jurisdiction over the same, and the Unit Owner alone shall be liable for any damage or injury caused by any radio, television or other electrical equipment in such Unit.

The cost of repairing any damage resulting from misuse of any such apparatus shall be borne by the Unit Owner causing such damage. Unit Owners are cautioned against excessive use of soaps and other detergents in their appliances or plumbing apparatus, which may cause overflow of suds in any Unit or in any central waste disposal system.

All Unit Owners shall keep the volume of any radio, television, musical instrument or other sound-producing device in their Units sufficiently reduced at all times so as not to disturb other Unit Owners.
- Other than signs identifying the Condominium Project, signage installed by Declarant as part of the construction of the Condominium Project and other signs approved by the Board of Directors, no sign or other window displays or advertising shall be maintained or permitted on any part of the Condominium Project or in any Unit, except that the Declarant, the Board of Directors or the managing agent may place “for sale,” “for rent,” or “for lease” signs on Units for the purpose of selling or leasing the same, but in no event will any such sign be larger than one foot by two feet nor shall it contain any material considered offensive by the Board of Directors in its discretion (and any sign in violation hereof shall be forthwith removed upon notice from the Board of Directors).
