Your Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is the stipend the Department of Defense allocates to pay for the majority of rent and utilities. When you live on post, BAH includes rent, average utilities, fire and police services, municipal services, as well as services like lawn care, trash removal, pest control, home maintenance, community amenities, project costs and future improvements.

Your home is a haven for togetherness, a comforting place where memories are made. Unfortunately, however, it can also be ripe with safety hazards that put your children at risk. While there are the big safety factors to consider, like keeping kids away from the oven or making sure energetic toddlers can’t climb out of their cribs, there are many less obvious risks that are just as dangerous. That’s why it’s important to spend the time to go through your house and conduct a thorough safety check, making sure you stop to consider factors that are easily overlooked.
Check out these tips to help you create the safest home for your family.
As a parent or guardian, you want to do everything you can to protect your child and isolate them from danger. During all seasons especially the spring and summer months we must remember the importance of making sure that our children play in safe areas. Children should always play in proper designated locations such as the park(s), community play areas, and their family yard with the supervision of an adult at all times.
Please also remember to adhere to the Seymour Johnson Child Supervision Policy when children are playing outside and/or when leaving them home alone.
Don’t forget! Applications for the Corvias Foundation $5,000 Educational Grants for spouses of active-duty service members are due Thursday, May 4. The application is available online at corviasfoundation.org.
Another brief reminder is to please be courteous when driving in general and especially in residential areas. Make sure to wear your seatbelts, connect Bluetooth headsets or hands free mobile device, and obey the speed limit at all times. Following these simple steps can keep everyone safe and happy while giving us the liberty to enjoy our families and the beautiful outdoors.
Each month, residents spotted doing the right thing or going above and beyond are recognized. This month, our Resident Spotlight Award goes to Ssgt Jesus and Ofelia Parra. Thanks for being an outstanding resident and taking such great care of your fellow neighbors – to include the four legged ones that you have helped care for. We are happy to have you and your family living with us at Seymour Johnson!
We love when our resident’s recycle. Glass, Plastic, Cardboard, Aluminum Cans and Paper are all accepted in your BLUE recycle can. Please feel free to contact the community office if you have any specific questions about recycling other items.
All trash needs to be placed in a bag and in the trash can when possible. This prevents issues when the waste contractor dumps your bin and also will help keep the squirrels away. Oil, charcoal, paint, and other hazardous waste may not go into your trash bin. Your trash bin needs to be stored in the rear of your yard or in the designated storage area.
Vehicles should be parked on the opposite side of the street of a fire hydrant. Vehicles should not be parked on the curb/grass.
The following types of vehicles and equipment may not be permanently parked or left in the community for more than 48 hours: Trailers, RV’s, camper trailers, motor coaches, tractor trailers, commercial vehicles, boats, boat trailers, horse trailers, or any other non-traditional forms of transportation.
We offer a 24/7 maintenance line for all your maintenance needs. Please call 919-988-6951 and select option 8.
Please contact your Corvias Community Office at least 30 days prior to your move out. We will also need to complete a notice to vacate form at least 30 days prior to your move out. We are here to make your PCS as smooth as possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Community Office with any questions.
As the warmer weather is approaching and we start preparing our families for fun activities in the sun, many of us may decide to purchase a pool for the kids to play in their backyard. Please remember if you are purchasing a pool that:
- Only small, well-maintained wading pools are permitted. Wading pools must be 12 inches or less in height and no more than 10-feet wide.
- Wading pools must be positioned in the backyard on grassy areas
- Wading pools must be emptied daily and removed when not in use.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to the community office.
We are continuing to complete our annual preventative home maintenance visits on each of the Seymour Johnson AFB homes. We will ensure that your fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, mechanical system and applications, etc. are in tip-top shape. This work does require entry into your home, so we will be sure to inform you of your preventative maintenance visit in advance. The next group of homes to be visited will be: 307-318 Chanute, 200 Block of Don Allen, 1-7 Eagleston, 212-308 Etchberger the week of May 15th – 19th.
Please check the calendar for your scheduled mowing days. Please keep in mind that all animal waste needs to be cleaned up for the landscapers. Also, all toys and other items need to be stored properly in the back yard. As always, yards will continue to receive weed treatment around tree rims and in cracks and crevices.
Take advantage of spring weather! While the temperatures outside are comfortable, use a window or ceiling fan instead of the air conditioner. A fan only requires a tenth of the energy needed to run an air conditioner.
