November 2018 Board of Directors Meeting
The November 2018 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Monday, November 26, 2018 in the gym at 6:00 PM.
In observance of Thanksgiving, Action Property Management and CityMark will be closed Thursday, November 24, 2018 – Friday, November 25, 2018. In the event of a maintenance emergency, such as a flood, please contact Action Property Management at 949-450-0202.
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.
At the October Meeting
At the October Meeting, the Board approved the 2019 Budget and Reserve Study. Owners will be getting there Budget mailers soon and please notice that there is an increase in the monthly assessments. Make sure that you make any changes need with your Bank direct deposits if needed.

Exercise Your Valves
As a reminder it is good practice to exercise your valves on your plumbing fixtures. By doing this on regular basis you will become aware of any problems and have serviced prior to when an emergency may occur.
As a reminder all spaces at Columbia Place are assigned. If you park in a space that does not belong to you or have the permission of the owner, you are subject to tow.
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!”
