Annual Meeting @ 5:30, plus a Callout for Artists

The condo association’s annual meeting will be held this evening at 5:30 on the roof deck/fifth floor of the Leo Roy Garage. If weather or sound conditions warrant it, it may be moved down a floor to the fourth level. Please wear a mask and bring your own chair. And please be considerate of other people’s space when using the garage elevator and when placing your chair.

Also, a message from Georgi;

Hi everyone! When I walked into the back elevator the day after Ron had done some work in it, I thought how nice it was to have some color in that area. I made the suggestion to Cathy that maybe it might be a nice idea to do an abstract with color or a mural in that back elevator to make it come alive. She has asked me to check with anyone who might be interested in doing something like that to send a proposal to her so that she could talk to the board about it.

Is there anyone interested in doing that kind of thing?

I think it would be wonderful for that back elevator. No more dull gray, just bunches of color!

Hearing 9/23 re:Canal St. & Francis St.

For those of you who received and read the notice about a public hearing on the 23rd, and who are wondering where Francis Street in Lowell is, it doesn’t exist yet. Unless I’m mistaken, it will be a roadway looping around what is now the Visitor’s Center parking lot and will allow access to both the new garage and the back way into our parking lot.

Related information can be found through the links here. If you look at the detailed plans, my understanding is that the street labeled “Street F” will become part of Canal Street (and/or possibly part of Broadway St), and the street labeled “Street G” will become Francis Street.

The agenda for the meeting and information on how to participate can be found here.

Voting & Ballot Drop-Off

For those who were planning to use mail-in ballots for tomorrow’s state primary but haven’t actually done anything with them in yet, there is (according to the city website) a drop-off box inside the City Hall entrance on the JFK Plaza side of the building. Completed ballots must be returned by tomorrow at 8:00pm.

(Update: I was just over there and there’s a slot in the door as shown in the photo, not a separate box inside the building.. There’s a secure, black box bolted to the floor on the other side of the door which the slot feeds directly into.)

If you’re planning to vote in person tomorrow, our building is in ward 2, precinct 3, and we vote at Lowell High Cafeteria. More voting information can be found here. Usual poll hours are 7:00am to 8:00pm

Mailroom Theft

On August 26, a resident of CP1 let this man into our building. He proceeded to the mailroom where he picked up 10 (TEN!) packages and walked out with them. 

He left by bike so probably doesn’t live here. He found it very easy to steal those packages from residents of Canal Place 1, 2 and 3; it took him about 2 minutes—and then he left. What is your bet that, since he found this so easy to do, he will be back to get more ‘shopping’ done in the future?

Please, please, please do NOT allow anyone in the building that you do not personally know. Tell them to call whoever it is they SAY they are visiting, either on our directory system or on a cell phone. 

If anyone has any idea who this is, please contact Cathy Deloge at Royal Management 978-521-9995. 

Lost Package

Has anyone seen a FedEx package for #104, either in our mailroom or somewhere else? It supposedly was delivered here yesterday afternoon but can’t be found. If anyone has access to Canal Place 2 or 3 and wants to check for it, it would be appreciated. If found, please let me or Henry in #104 know. Thanks!

Free Games

I’m looking to give away two Risk sets, a Trivial Pursuit game (original game plus Baby Boomer edition add-on) and a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle. If you’re interested, just shoot an e-mail to and I’ll arrange to hand over some or all of them.

Oh, and I have a sign that says: “I cleaned my house last week…sorry you missed it,” which is going in the trash unless someone would like it. 🙂


Looking for a Roommate

A message from an owner/neighbor:

Hello Neighbors of Canal Place One. My name is Julie Manoogian and I’m the owner of Unit 508. I used to live in the building myself but now I’m renting out my 2-bedroom condo. I have one lovely tenant named Rosemary already living there but we’re searching for a roommate to live with Rosemary. This would be a shared condo situation. My priority is to find a renter who is trustworthy and respectful and quiet! Perhaps you know someone who’d like to live in our beautiful Canal Place One building?

For more info e-mail: (P.S. I currently live at Canal Place 3, so I really care about our complex.)
