Holiday Tree Disposal

The Association will not have a drop off location this year due to fire safety concerns.  However, City of San Diego Environmental Services Departments has locations to drop your tree off to with the two closest locations being Memorial Recreation Center in Logan Heights, 2902 Marcy Ave and Golden Hill Recreation Center located at 2600 Golf Course Drive. 

Holiday Schedule

In observance of upcoming holidays, Action Property Management and CityMark will be closed Tuesday, December 24, 2019 and Wednesday, December 25, 2019, as well as Wednesday, January 1, 2020.   If you need assistance, please call 949-450-0202 or use the Action Life portal: www.resident.actionlife.com for non-emergency situations.  For life threatening situations call 911.  For other non-life threatening emergencies please use the Emergency Situation Protocol (non-life threatening), shown below.

Short Term Rental

It is important to know than renting your unit for less than 30 days is considered a short-term rental and homeowners could be fined up to $5,000 for this violation. 

Pets (OTOI Form)

If you have an animal in the Community and have not registered it with Management, please fill out the OTOI form and the Pet Registration form that can be found on your Resident Portal.  Owners must obtain this information from their renters.  It is imperative Management has this information, as this is a requirement by the CC&Rs.  Please submit your form no later than January 30, 2020 to prevent a violation.

Shopping Carts

The Association has shopping carts located in the garage near the elevator for the resident’s convenience, when a resident is finished with the shopping cart please return the cart to the garage near the elevator.

Proper Use of Garbage Disposals

Columbia Place continues to experience kitchen sink back-ups.  Use of a garbage disposal in a stacked unit 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.) the chance of a backup in your unit or one below you increase resulting in costly damage paid by all owners via monthly assessments and can affect next years budget.

Vacant Board Seat

There is currently one vacant seat on the Columbia Place Board of Directors.  If you are an Owner in good standing and would like to be considered for appointment, please contact Management at ggrana@actionlife.com with some information about yourself and why you would like to serve on the Columbia Place Board.

January 2020 Board of Directors Meeting

The January 2020 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Monday, January 27, 2020 in the gym at 6:00pm.  No Meeting will be held in December.

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.  You also can now submit suspicious activity online using the link https://downtownsandiego.org/clean-and-safe/

Emergency Situation Protocol (non-life threatening)

In any type of emergency situation, maintenance or non-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.
