October 2017 Board of Directors Meeting

The October 2017 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Monday, October 16, 2017 in the gym at 6:00 PM. Please note that this is one week earlier than the regularly scheduled meeting.

Car Thefts

Over the last few months, at least two vehicles parked outside of Columbia Place have been stolen. Please remember to take all valuable items out of your car and lock your vehicles at all times.

Window Washing – COMING!!

Upon completion of the renovation project, the windows at Columbia Place will be cleaned. Please stay tuned for dates.

Roof Access

Please remember when scheduling roof access for vendors, you must give 48 hours notice. To schedule these appointments please call Management at 800-400-2284 or email at kthomson@actionlife.com

Courtyard Construction

The construction continues in the courtyards. Should you have any questions or concerns please email: myproject@admagellan.com 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.

Do you know?

Where can you find the Association’s open session meeting minutes, financial statements, governing documents, insurance certificate, and reserve study?

All of these documents are available to Owners through Action’s VivoPortal. Homeowners are able to sign up and easily access a wide variety of documents located in the “Association Documents” folder.  The Portal also provides homeowners the ability to access account information, view financial information, register for eStatements*, submit work orders, etc.  To setup an account, go to vivoportal.com and click the “Register a new Vivo account” located in the top right-hand corner.  You will need your 12-digit account number to register.

*E-statements cost the HOA $0.30 per unit, while hard copy billings cost $1.50 per unit. To save the HOA money, considering switching over to E-statements today!

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.
