January 2017 Board of Directors Meeting
The January 2017 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Monday, January 23, 2017 in the gym at 6:00pm. No Meeting will be held in December.
Upcoming Winter Holiday
In observance of upcoming holidays, Action Property Management and CityMark will be closed Friday, December 23, 2016 – Monday, December 26, 2016, as well as Monday, January 2, 2017. In the event of a maintenance emergency, such as a flood, please contact Action Property Management at 949-450-0202 or through www.viviportal.com.
Holiday Tree Disposal
The Association will schedule two dates to dispose of the holiday trees towards the end of December. Please be on the lookout for location of the tree drop off, dates and times.
During the holidays many residents are receiving packages. This increase in packages fills up the bins very fast, so as a reminder please breakdown boxes before placing them in the recycling bin.
Holiday Giving Project
Placed by each of the mailboxes, Columbia Place is participating in a holiday giving project for the USO. Residents are encouraged to donate and place in the bins which will be picked up in December.
The holiday season is here and to show your holiday spirit, the Association will be conducting a front door and patio decorating contest! The best decorated front door and patio will be eligible for a prize! Judging will take place on December 21st, so make sure to have your decorations up and ready.
Holiday Gathering Postponed
The Holiday Party has been postponed this year. The Board has chosen to have a ground breaking party to talk to the community about the upcoming renovations in the next few months.
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.
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!”
