I’m currently running into an issue with my HOA around
charcoal grills being prohibited in the building. I’ll start off with some background info. I live in Chicago in a 5 story building and my
balcony is on the 4th floor and is made of concrete. I purchased a Large BGE in May of 2010. Recently they’ve distributed the rules and
regulations and are making everyone sign a form saying they acknowledge the
rules. One of the rules in all caps is
that charcoal/wood grills aren’t allowed (but gas grills are allowed). I’m not sure if it is a new rule or not (I
should have checked before I bought BGE but I couldn’t resist).
Any suggestions for ways around getting around this? Safety studies? Documentation of some sort? I haven’t asked why this rule is in place yet
because I wanted to be prepared beforehand.
Hopefully I can find some kind of loophole or get an exemption.
Thanks in advance.
