July 2017 Board of Directors Meeting
The July 2017 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Monday, July 24, 2017 in the gym at 6:00pm.
Annual Meeting – TURN IN YOUR BALLOTS
In order for the Association to make quorum, please make sure to turn in your ballot. The scheduled meeting for June 26, 2017 did not meet quorum. The Annual meeting has been rescheduled to July 24, 2017. If you need a new ballot, please request one from Management.
Columbia Place parking spaces are on the small side and it can be very difficult to maneuver in the garage. Please make sure when parking that your vehicle is fully in your space to make sure your neighbors can access their spaces as well.
The construction continues in the courtyards. Should you have any questions or concerns please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and include “Columbia Place” in the subject line. A.D. Magellan will be happy to answer any questions or concerns in regards to the project.
Dumping Toxic Waste
Please remember that paint, light bulbs and electronics cannot be disposed in the trash bins. Waste Management will not pick up the dumpsters if these items are found in the bins. Columbia Place staff must remove the items from the bins in order for the trash to be picked up, which takes away from the daily tasks.
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!”
