ROCKINGHAM COUNTY -- One student housing complex is tightening up its security and the company behind it said its in response to the recent complaints it received from neighbors.
Aspen Heights has added several new polices regarding security and they all went into effect Thursday.
People who live in Aspen Heights are upset because of this new security policy. One change means people are only allowed to register two guests per night and they must wear an arm band.
"When I signed my lease I wasn't told I could only have two guests in my house and the property. I was allowed to have up to 20 people in my house," said Aspen Heights resident Rob Saltser.
"It's just really inconvenient for us especially since we are only limited to two people, per resident. If we want family for friends to visit it's very difficult," said Aspen Heights resident Annie Bacordo.
Stuart Watkins is the Public Relations Director for Aspen Heights. He said family members are different.
"There are exceptions, if a resident has two guests that are already on the property and members of their family also want to be admitted onto the property, that is allowed," said Watkins.
Another new policy is that security guards will be at every entrance. When a person comes home, they have to check in.
"The guards aren't that bad, they are kind of nice about it but it sucks I should be able to come and go as I please," said Aspen Heights resident Alec Chamberlain.
Another policy change is that the Harrisonburg bus is only allowed to come onto the property Monday - Friday 7 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. On the weekends the bus will drop off people a block away.
"We were having hundreds of guests arriving to the property on these buses and then visiting the property on Friday and Saturday night," said Watkins.
Some people feel the policy change is good but have issues with it.
"I think it is a little much in my opinion but I mean they definitely needed to change something but I think they are going a little too far," said Aspen Heights resident Kelsey Bryzek.
Aspen Heights said if anyone has a problem with the new policy or needs clarification, they need to contact the office.
