Annual Meeting Results

Congratulations to Michael Meacham on being elected at our Annual Meeting to the Board of Directors for a two year term.  

Recognizing Retiring Director

The Alicante Board and Management would like to thank Tom Gauld for his years of contribution to the Alicante community. Tom’s dedication and time has helped shaped the culture of Alicante and has not only made the building a very desirable place for many to call home, but an enjoyable place for staff to come to work.

Thank you, Tom! 

4th of July Holiday

Action Property Management and Able Engineering will be closed on Friday, July 3, 2020 in observance of 4th of July.  If there is an afterhours maintenance emergency, such as a flood, please contact Action Property Management at 949-450-0202, afterhours personnel will assist you.  Have a safe and wonderful holiday!

Window Washing

Window washing will begin the week of Monday, July 13th. Please look out for a full schedule as the date approaches.

Warranty Inspection

Reconstruction Experts will be onsite from Monday, July 13th – Friday, July 17th to conduct inspections of the building. This will require entry into units. Engineer, Patrick will knock and if no answer, the unit will be entered.

5 Year Fire Sprinkler Inspection

HCI will be conducting the mandated 5 Year Fire Sprinkler Inspection this month. This will require entry into all units, and may require an additional visit if the sprinkler heads in that unit need repair.  The in unit inspections will begin on Monday, July 13, 2020. The in unit inspection will occur at the same time as the warranty inspection.

Fitness Room Reopened

As you may already be aware the fitness room has reopened. Please follow the posted guidelines when using the fitness room.

Community Room Reservations

Management will not be taking any new community room reservations for the time being.

Face Coverings Policy

As of May 1st the County of San Diego has been requiring residents to wear face coverings in public settings. In regards to Alicante, we strongly recommend that all residents wear a face covering when traveling through the Association. Contractors and third party vendors working onsite are required to wear face coverings and gloves when traveling through the Association. For more information regarding face covering requirements from the County of San Diego please visit the link below:

Food and Beverage Delivery Apps

If you are using a food and beverage delivery service (i.e. UberEats, PostMates, GrubHub etc.), you must meet the delivery person at the front entry lobby door and must not let the delivery person into the building. By limiting the amount of non-Alicante residents from entering the building, this will help reduce the spread of germs.

Lost Items

Items that are found by the Building Engineer and Janitorial Staff in the garage, lobby, and amenity rooms are turned in to Management. If you believe you have misplaced an item, please contact Management at mplascencia@actionlife.com to check and see if it has been turned in.

Moves/Deliveries

All moves and deliveries must be scheduled with Management at least a week in advance. A general rule of thumb is if it takes more than one person to move it, then a move must be scheduled.  The reason is simply to protect the building from sustaining damage during a move.  Please be advised that if you are found to have had an unscheduled move, you will be subject to hearing and fine.  If you are unsure of the scope of your move or would like to schedule a move, please contact the General Manager. 

Architectural Applications

If you are thinking about making a change in your unit that would require architectural committee review and approval, please plan well in advance. Per the Architectural Guidelines, the Committee is allotted 30-45 days for review.  It is also recommended to wait before setting a schedule with your contractor until an approval has been awarded.

The CDC has also posted informative videos regarding Covid-19 on their Youtube Channel:

By limiting the amount of non-Alicante residents from entering the building, this will help reduce the spread of germs.

Social Distancing

The Governor’s order mandates people to practice “social distancing,” which is the idea of maintaining a roughly 6-foot distance between other people. It also means limiting nonessential travel, avoiding public transportation when possible, working from home, and skipping social gatherings.

Quarantine vs. Isolation

Isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease. To help give a clear definition as to what each one means, below are the definitions provided by the CDC website:

  • Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
  • Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.

Janitorial Cleaning Schedule

Our janitorial staff have changed up their regular daily cleaning schedule in order to emphasize cleaning the building’s high touch areas (elevator buttons, push bars, door handles, gate handles, etc.)

Fitness Room Closure

As you may already be aware the fitness room is currently closed and will remain closed until the County of San Diego permits public gyms to re-open. The Board of Directors will follow requirements provided by the County of San Diego in order to create procedures that will go into place upon the fitness room’s re-opening.

Community Room Reservations

Management will not be taking any new community room reservations for the time being.

Non-Essential Work 

Management along with the Building Engineer have halted all non-essential work from taking place in order to limit the amount of non-Alicante personnel from coming onsite. All emergency and safety related repairs will continue.

Lost Items

Items that are found by the Building Engineer and Janitorial Staff in the garage, lobby, and amenity rooms are turned in to Management. If you believe you have misplaced an item, please contact Management at mplascencia@actionlife.com to check and see if it has been turned in.

Alicante Committees

There are four committees at Alicante:

  • The Architectural Committee reviews Architectural Applications submitted by owners.
  • The Common Area Enhancement Committee works on common area décor, such as the lobby.
  • The Owner Maintenance Committee provides information on maintaining condo systems.
  • The Social Committee plans and hosts gatherings, like the Annual holiday party.

If you are a member who is interested in serving the Community but cannot dedicate the time to serve as a Board Member, joining a committee may be perfect for you! Please contact management at mplascencia@actionlife.com for more details. Alternately, Owners may view the various committee charters on Resident Portal.

Garage Break In

Please see the suggestions listed below that may help prevent break ins from occurring in the future:

  • Do not leave anything of value in your vehicle that is visible from the outside
  • Do not let anyone in the building that you do not know
  • Please call our security company immediately if you see anything suspicious taking place (619) 488-9064 during afterhours.
  • In the event of an emergency, please call 9-1-1.

In addition to the suggestions above, be sure to keep an eye out for anyone lurking around the garage gate when entering and exiting the building. Take a moment on P1 to check and see if anyone follows you in to the garage especially when entering at night before proceeding to your parking space. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact Management.
