October 2018 Board of Directors Meeting

The October 2018 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Monday, October 22, 2018 in the gym.

Open Board Seats

The Board consists of five seats, currently only three are filled. If you have an interest in helping your community, please contact Management at kthomson@actionlife.com to find out more information about joining the Board.

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!

At the September Meeting

At the September Meeting, the Board made the decision to forgo window washing in 2018 to help save on costs in the operating budget. All projects have also been placed on hold until the 2019 budget has been approved.


Bulk Items Left at the Trash Room

If you have large item to get rid of, please contact Management prior to leaving in the trash room.  As you are aware, the trash rooms are not large and items piling up could cause a fire hazard.  If you are able to break down such items, please do so.  This is not the job of the onsite staff.

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!”

Bike Audit

Management conducted a bike audit. Inoperable and/or abandoned bikes were removed and will be held until November 1, 2018, which at that time they will be donated. Bikes left in the bike room that have not been registered were also removed. Please contact Management at kthomson@actionlife.com with any questions.
