Avoid Costly Sink Backups

The disposal may grind it, but Columbia’s pipes cannot handle grease, scraps, cornhusks, egg shells, peels (apples, carrots, etc.), oils/butters, excessive soap, coffee grounds, or rice. Moreover, since condos are stacked, a drain issue in one condo likely impacts those above/below. Please remember – and ask cleaning staff to remember – to avoid the items listed to help keep Columbia’s drains flowing.

Race for Autism

Looking for something fun to do this weekend while supporting a great cause?  Race for Autism is taking place on Saturday, April 6 from 7:30am to 12pm at Balboa Park.

Management has reached out to WinDor to find a Saturday that will work to meet at Columbia Place to discuss with residents who are in need of repairing or replacing their windows.  Once a date has been confirmed management will notify all residents.

Window/AC Repairs

The Board of Directors met with WinDor Representative, Russ Bellows in regards to working with Columbia Place as their preferred vendor for windows. WinDor now has a $2,000 minimum for residents. Discounts begin for residents once the total is over $5,000 and up to a 30% discount when over $20,000. The Board has requested a Saturday that WinDor come onsite, where Owners can get a proposal from them to help in getting a group deal for the Residents. Please notify management within the next 30 days with thoughts on this and if you would be willing to meet on a Saturday to discuss this and come up with a similar plan regarding AC Units.
