March 2020 Board of Directors Meeting
The March 2020 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Monday, March 23, 2020 in the gym at 6:00pm.
New Moving Coordinators
The Board has contracted with IMMC Co Moving Coordinators to facilitate moves at Columbia Place effective March 16, 2020. Management will update the move forms with IMMCCO’s information.
The Candidate Solicitation form was emailed and mailed out to Owners for the upcoming Annual Election for the Board of Directors. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please fill out the questionnaire and return to Management Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pedestrian Gates and Main Entrance Gates
The Board of Directors contracted with A Garage Door & Gate Store to replace the four pedestrian gates leading into the garage. A Garage Door & Gate Store is in the middle of the project and hopes to have the project complete by Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Management and the Board are working with A Garage Door & Gate Store to ensure these gates are properly secured during the project. With regards to the main entrance gates Management will be contacting architects to find a company who can provide a drawing for the gates for the Board to review.
It has been brought to Management’s attention that recently the spa heater had been turned off. Management reached out to Hasley Pool Service to address this issue and reset the timer pump and motor as well as check the heater coils and ignition switch.
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 to prevent a violation.
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
The use of a garbage disposal in a stacked units 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 the one below you increase resulting in costly damage paid by all owners via monthly assessments and can affect next year’s budget.

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.
