From the Board:

Recently you received a flyer from Xfinity which you probably  discarded thinking it was a sales pitch. We can assure you it was just  the contrary. Through the strength of the thousands of units First Service  manages, along with Tom Cadigan, Howard Kosowsky and Calixto Rodriguez, a  very favorable contract was reached for the island.     

Unit owners will get more service for less money:   

- X1 plus DVR, plus another HDTV box (see video

- faster internet speeds 

- Comcast will do an evaluation of the wiring in individual units and replace wiring if necessary

- Comcast will do the same for the wiring in the hallways 

Please plan to attend one of the three informational meetings listed above, where  your questions can be answered. It might be a good idea to bring a copy  of your monthly invoice.  


Did you receive all the communications?

 An  unusually large number of emails from the club  and from the Association  have recently gone out.  To help you check if  you received the most  important ones, here are the dates, subject  lines and sending address  of the emails.

We want to remind you that the new, prettier version of the First Service Residential Portal is LIVE ! If you didn’t get the email notice via Grove.Isle.News ask your building’s manager for a copy.

From this point forward, to access your billing information and the Association’s documents (e.g. detailed committee reports), you will need to register on the new portal at This must be done even if you were already registered on the old FSR website. Click on ’Resident Access’ in the top-right corner. Please note that in order to sign up, you must have a current email address and mobile number registered with the Management Office.  

The FirstService Residential ‘Connect Resident Portal’ has a lot to offer most impressively an updated and responsive design which seamlessly supports desktop, tablet and mobile displays so you can access the site anytime and from any device.

It has a public landing page to showcase our community to prospective buyers, realtors and others. Have a great picture of the isle? Send it to your building manager for the site.

It offers a self-service platform you can use to edit your contact information, make payments, check balances, download forms and documents, view your permanent guest list, and more. The old website will shortly be discontinued so if you use these features, please register now.

The most exciting portion of this portal is still to come. It will soon provide the ability to notify you about package deliveries via your email.  It’s a great way to know if you should stop at security on your way home.  Once this feature is operational, you’ll get a notice from Grove.Isle.News 

If you are having difficulty registering, please contact your building’s Management Office.
