Welcome to Columbia Place

Request for Candidates

The Annual Meeting of the Membership for your Association will be held in July 2024 for the purpose of electing a Board of Directors.  You will receive an official meeting notice specifying the actual date, time and location.

At this time we are requesting candidates for the Board of Directors.  The Board consists of five (5) members who are elected by the membership.  At this time there are two (2) positions up for election, each for a two (2) year term.  The elected Board members will then meet and appoint officers, therefore, candidates will run for a position on the Board only, and not a particular office.

Qualifications to run for the Board of Directors: 

  1. Must be an Owner.

The Board of Directors meets in the evening every month to conduct the business of the Association.  The meetings can last 2-3 hours.  There may be other business to be handled between meetings that may require a Special Meeting of the Board, which could mean additional time commitments.

If you are interested in running for the Board, please contact Management by emailing atutty@actionlife.com, for a Candidate Statement Form. CANDIDATE STATEMENTS MUST BE SUBMITTED PRIOR TO 5:00 PM, MONDAY, MAY 6, 2024, IN ORDER TO BE INCLUDED ON THE BALLOT.

Thank you for taking an active, positive interest in your community!

Are you interested in maintaining Columbia Place’s festivities and communal gatherings with your neighbors? If so, the Social Committee needs you! The Committee is currently without a Chair and is in need of a homeowner to step in to avoid the committee being disbanded. If you are interested in serving and helping your community, please contact Management at atutty@actionlife.com for further information or to submit your interest in writing. All interested parties will be reviewed at an upcoming Board meeting.


Cristian Ochoa has officially settled into the role as building engineer for the association. His days are filled with continuing to oversee vendors onsite, maintaining important property components, and working towards completing various large scale community projects. He can be reached via phone at 619.913.9022 and is onsite Monday through Friday from 7am-3:30pm, unless otherwise noted. Welcome Cristian!


At the February 2024 Board meeting, the Board approved a proposal submitted by Pacific Green Landscape to replace five (5) palms in the exterior planter in the courtyard. The palms did not survive the waterproofing project. Once the replacement has been completed, the landscape lighting in this area will be reconnected and the project formally wrapped.


In light of recent reports about missing packages, residents are reminded to pick up any packages delivered as soon as possible. This helps avoid any unwanted attention to the building for potential thefts. Please also ensure that you do not allow any unknown individuals to follow you through the pedestrian gates or vehicle entry gate. If you have food deliveries, please meet the delivery personnel at the gates rather than buzzing them in, giving full access to the community. If you misplace your key fob, please contact Cristian as soon as possible so he can deactivate the fob assigned to you. The Board suggests residents consider installing Ring cameras, or similar, at the front door of individual units to act as a deterrent to any theft. If installed, please make sure that cameras are placed on the entry door – not the stucco exterior of the building. If you see anything suspicious, please report it to SDPD and let Management know of the incident after reporting to law enforcement. Thank you for keeping Columbia Place secure!


As the balcony project comes to an end, Cristian will be working on compiling a schedule for all exterior painting needed on each unit’s balcony included in the project. This will take some time, so your patience is appreciated. Cristian will contact you directly should he need access to your unit to complete the painting.


With water rates increasing, residents are reminded to be proactive with conserving water. Reduction in water use helps keep operating costs down. Easy ways you can do your part with conserving water can be as simple as reducing shower times and waiting until you have a full load for washers and dishwashers. Residents may also install a low flow shower head, install a low flow toilet, and ensure that any potential in-unit water leaks are efficiently repaired. Your conservation efforts are appreciated!


As of late January, there is a vacancy on the Board of Directors. The seat’s term expires in June 2025. If you are interested in learning more about serving on the Board or are interested in being appointed, please contact Management for additional information. Your interest will be presented to the Board at an upcoming meeting.
