Am I allowed to run a business from my home?

Permission to conduct a home enterprise such as child care operated by a DoN-approved licensed child care provider, tailoring, tax preparation, etc. in Family Housing should be requested in writing to the AMCC Community Management Office. All in-home businesses must be properly licensed by all local, state, and federal laws; in addition to installation requirements. Businesses which adversely affect the tranquility or safety of the military community will not be allowed. Requests for modifications to the home for an in-home business must be submitted in writing and approved by the Community Manager; any modifications will be at the Resident’s expense. Businesses will not duplicate the sale of merchandise and services readily available through the installations’ officially sanctioned commerce. Door-to-door sales, surveys, and/or solicitations of any sort are not permitted. Likewise, commercial advertising or flyers of any kind may not be posted or distributed. It is a Federal offense to attach anything to mailboxes. 

Are guests allowed to stay with me?

Visitation period for guests is limited to 15 consecutive days. Residents must notify the AMCC Community Manager, in writing, within 72 hours of a visitor's arrival if the visitor will be staying more than 3 consecutive days. Click here for the visitor housing authorization form. Residents are responsible for complying with any applicable Marine Corps and/or installation requirements concerning guests. Special situations, such as temporary custody, should be referred to the AMCC Community Management and the MHO offices and will be dealt with on an individual basis. AMCC reserves the right to control the entry into the community by Resident's guests, agents, licensees or invitees, furniture movers, delivery persons, solicitors, and/or salespeople and may prohibit from the home or community any guests or invitees who, in AMCC’s reasonable judgment, have been disturbing the peace, disturbing other Residents or violating Community Guidelines and Policies. As a custodian of the Leased property, the Resident retains responsibility for the guests residing at their home.

When is the grass cut?

PREPARE YOUR YARD: Residents are responsible for removing all objects in their yard including pets and pet waste, toys, hoses, any items that could get in the way of the lawn mowers, and all yard debris including leaves, branches and rocks. It those things are not removed, yard maintenance personnel cannot be held responsible for damage their mowers may cause to the resident’s items, or possibly, the resident’s yard will not be mowed. 

Residents will be responsible for lawn maintenance for the areas of their home that are fenced. Grass outside the fence line will be maintained by the landscaping contractor. 

For more information about the lawn maintenance schedule, please contact your Community Manager. 

Mow Schedule*
Bi-weekly mowing begins on or around May 1st and continues through September.  


Note, mowing will start in the communities with the largest need first, and will take a full two weeks to mow all communities, dependent on weather.

*Grass will be cut a minimum of 14 times annually and may be more frequent depending on seasonal or climate conditions. Adjustments to the schedule will be made as needed to account for growing seasons and raining seasons. The schedule listed above does not guarantee a weekly mow schedule, but simply suggests the days of the week the landscaping contractor may mow in that neighborhood.  

Green Waste Removal
In accordance with the Cherry Point community standard guidelines residents are responsible for the maintenance of the grounds within their fenced yards and flower beds. Green waste bags for flower bed maintenance and for those who wish to rake and do additional clean-up of their yards, are available for pick up at your community office. 

When the bags are full, place them in your designated trash and recycling location and they will be picked up on your designated trash day. Please be sure to place all reasonable green waste items go into the bags to insure pick up. Any large limbs that cannot be bagged should be placed next to the other green waste.

Utilities

Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP) - How Does it Work?

The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) set forth the policy for the payment of utilities in Public Private Venture (PPV) housing to encourage energy efficiency in privatized housing units. The Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP) represents the Navy's next step in establishing an energy conservation program in PPV housing consistent with the OSD policy.

The RECP is designed to set reasonable utility usage targets for normal utility consumption. Homes are grouped into profiles with similar or same floor plan types and sizes. The utility usage target is established on a monthly average utility allowance for each home based on a five-year rolling average of each specific month. Each month families will receive an actual bill and accrue credit for rebates if they use less than the average utility allowance. If a family exceeds the 10% buffer they are responsible for payment. It is important to note that payment due is only for the amount over the 10% buffer, not for the entire amount consumed.

Note: An allowance for "normal" utilities (electricity and natural gas) use is part of the BAH. This program was designed by the Navy to encourage residents to achieve normal usage and to reward them for conservation beyond normal expectations. If you conserve and use utilities wisely within a normal range, families should have no out-of-pocket utility expense, and may even qualify for a rebate.

Common Questions

Is renter’s insurance mandatory?

Although it's not required, we highly encourage residents to have personal renter's insurance. 

Effective January 1, 2015, in accordance with the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), basic renter's insurance is no longer a zero-out-of-pocket benefit. All residents signing a new lease after April 15, 2015 will be responsible for acquiring and paying for their own rental insurance policy. We strongly encourage all residents to acquire renter's insurance. 

***Note: Your Resident Guide refers to renter's insurance offering, which has been discontinued of January 1, 2015.
