Thanksgiving Schedule

In observance of Thanksgiving, Action Property Management and City Mark will be closed Thursday, November 28, 2019 – Friday, November 29, 2019.  In the event of a maintenance emergency, such as a flood, please contact Action Property Management at 949-450-0202.

At the October Board Meeting

  • The 2020 Budget & Reserve Study was approved. Owners will be receiving their Budget mailers soon.
  • Replacement of the broken gym treadmill was approved and should be replaced within a couple weeks.
  • Approval to switch pest control companies from Lloyds Pest Control to Payne Pest Control, providing an annual savings.

Columbia Street Sidewalk Trees

There has been a lot of concern over the look of the trees that reside on the north part of Columbia Street sidewalk.  The Board submitted a permit request to the City in May and the installation of the new trees was denied due to Columbia Place not having a permanent irrigation system.  Pacific Green Landscaping and the City has evaluated these trees and they are in good health with adequate care.  The look is characteristic for these trees, unlike a maple or oak, and is not in any way indicating they are dying or lacking care.  Given this review the Board will not be addressing this issue any further and will not entertain removal of healthy trees to replace them with another variety.

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.
