November 2016 Board of Directors Meeting
The November 2016 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Monday, November 28, 2016 in the gym at 6:00pm.
In observance of Thanksgiving, Action Property Management and CityMark Building Services will be closed on Thursday, November 24, 2016 – Friday, November 25, 2016. Please continue to submit maintenance work-orders to Action at 949-450-0202 or through www.vivoportal.com.
Holiday Giving Project
After Thanksgiving Columbia Place will be participating in a holiday giving project for USO. A box will be placed at a location later to be determined where residents can drop off gifts for families in the Military. More details to follow later in the month.
The holiday season is fast approaching and to show your holiday spirit, the Association will be conducting a front door decorating contest! The best decorated front door may be eligible for a prize!
The Holiday Party is being scheduled. A date, location, time and additional details will be sent out in the coming weeks. If you would like to participate in planning this event, please contact Management at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a reminder all spaces at Columbia Place are assigned. If you park in a space that does not belong to you or have the permission of the owner, you are subject to tow.
Proper Use of Garbage Disposals
Columbia Place continues to experience kitchen sink back-ups. Use of a garbage disposal in a stacked unit situation is much different than a single story home. Please throw away your food into the garbage. By putting foods down the disposal (rice, pastas, eggshells, etc.) this increases the chance of a backup in your unit or one below you – resulting in costly damage paid by all owners via monthly assessments and can affect the following years budget.
Exercise Your Valves
As a reminder it is good practice to exercise your valves on your plumbing fixtures. By doing this on regular basis you will become aware of any problems and have serviced prior to when an emergency may occur.
Emergency Situation Protocol
In any type of emergency situation, maintenance or life threatening, do NOT email – PLEASE CALL! Action and Action After-Hours can be reached at 949-450-0202. If you are experiencing a water intrusion and have called it in, DO NOT LEAVE your unit even if it is a slow back up. You may end up being responsible for damages due to negligence. If there is anything that is life threatening, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1.
Clean & Safe – (619) 234-8900
Residents are encouraged to call Clean & Safe if they notice homeless loitering at Columbia Place. Clean & Safe will ask the homeless to leave and provide them locations of shelters. Additionally, if residents notice graffiti, broken glass, garbage on the sidewalks around the community on a day where Boiling Maintenance is not onsite, these things can also be reported to Clean & Safe. This is an initiative by the City of San Diego that all downtown residents pay for via property taxes, take advantage of this to keep the area “clean and safe!”
