As the downtown population grows and parking lots diminish, locating suitable parking can often be a challenge and sometimes costly. This has resulted in a minority of our residents being “creative” in their parking. With this in mind, we thought it might help to summarize and review parking policies at Luma to help prevent any possible inconveniences, misunderstandings and unnecessary expenses.
The vast majority of parking spaces are privately owned with a handful under the HOA control. You are of course authorized to park in your own assigned space. To park in any other space, than your own, you need advance permission from the resident who is in control of the parking space or the HOA. In the latter case you will have an authorization form, with limitations, issued by the HOA that you must place on your dashboard. Various areas of the garage have been designated as ‘no parking’ and no one can park or be authorize to park in these areas.
If you park in another resident’s parking space without permission, your vehicle is subject to being towed, without notice, and at your expense. The cost to get your vehicle back is approximately $400+, not to mention the inconvenience. If you park in an area designated as a ‘no parking’ zone, or in an area not designated for vehicle parking, your vehicle is subject to the same rules – towing at your expense, without notice. Staff cannot authorize parking in an area that is designated ‘no parking’ or in a space not under HOA control, so please do not ask. The HOA is not responsible for paying resident’s towing fees if your car is towed in violation of Luma’s policies.
If someone is parked in your space without authorization, you have the right to have the vehicle towed. You may notice a few parking spaces in the garage that are frequently empty. Please be respectful of others’ property. An empty parking space does not give you or your guest authority to park there. Again, if you park in another resident’s, or HOA parking space, without permission, your vehicle is subject to being towed, without notice, at your expense.
Motorcycles are unique and have a few more parking options than cars. Inquire at the Front Desk for available parking options.
Please let staff know if you are experiencing problems with your parking space, we will gladly assist you with steps towards prevention.
In addition to the tow fee, violating any parking policies could also result in fines after a properly conducted hearing. It should therefore be clear following Luma’s parking polices is not only the right thing to do for your community – your neighbors – but it is also the most cost effective.

DEEP CLEANING JUNE 4TH THROUTH JUNE 6TH
The deep cleaning of the garage at Luma has been scheduled for June 4th through June 6th.
This service is conducted by our Maintenance team every other year.
Please ensure your vehicles are removed from their parking spaces on the scheduled date and time frame.
This is not mandatory. Parking spaces will be skipped if the vehicle is not removed and will not be cleaned once the level has been completed.
The team will be onsite each day from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm when cleaning will take place.
If you need parking during your scheduled cleaning time there are several lots around the area. The closest lot is on the East side of Hope St. just north of 11th St.
• 3rd Level
• 2nd and 1st Level
Dear Luma Residents,
The inductive loops are now active for the 11th street entry and exit gates. This means both gates will only open when a vehicle is present in the looped area and your garage gate opener is used simultaneously.
For the entry gate: This loop is located in line with the second planter closest to the gate. You can also stop approximately 6 feet from the gate. When entering the garage, you will need to stop in this area and then activate your garage gate opener. The gate will open and you can enter the garage. Please do not attempt to follow a vehicle thru the gate without going thru this process.
For the exit gate: This loop is in line with the two yellow pylons closest to the gate. You can also stop approximately 6 feet from the gate. When exiting the garage, you will need to stop in this area and then activate your garage gate opener. The gate will open and you can exit the garage. Please do not attempt to follow a vehicle thru the gate without going thru this process.
It is not necessary for both tires to be in the loop in order to activate it. Because the loops are electromagnetic, they are activated when the loop senses a large amount of metal. A car has more than enough metal to activate the loop.
Because a motorcycle’s metal composition can vary from brand to brand, some motorcycles may not have enough metal to activate the loop. If you experience an issue when using the 11th street garage gates, the 12 street (alley) gate can be activated with just your garage opener.
