April 2017 Board of Directors Meeting
The April 2017 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Monday, April 23, 2017 in the gym at 6:00pm.
Garage Power Washing
On Wednesday, April 12, 2017 the garage will be power washed. During this time, all vehicles will need to be removed from the garage from 9am-5pm.
As a reminder, the air conditioning units are the responsibility of each owner. It is recommended that filter be changed annually, at a minimum. As summer approaches, scheduling maintenance for individual A/C units is recommended prior to the hot months as vendors will be busier. Make sure when scheduling an appointment that roof access is scheduled with Management at least 48 hours in advance.
Annual Meeting – Request for Candidates
The Annual Meeting will be held on June 26, 2017 at 6pm at the Association. Please be on the lookout for the Request for Candidates. This will be a hard copy mailed to you around April 15, 2017. If you are an owner interested in learning the in’s and out’s of Columbia Place and would like to run for the Board, please submit this form back to Management to have your name included on the ballot.
Annual Meeting – Inspectors of Election
The Community is looking for one or three volunteers to serve as the Inspector(s) of Election at the upcoming Annual meeting on June 26, 2017. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Management at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Red Cart Usage
As a continual reminder, the red carts are for all resident use. Once you have transported your items, you must return the cart to the garage level by the elevators. Additionally, if you are having work done on your unit, your contractor must also remember to return the carts once the transportation of goods is done. The carts cannot be kept at any unit for any reason. Please also remember to clean any spills or debris. Your neighbor will thank you!
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!”
