Amazon Hub Parcel Locker

Alicante Owners Association is now using the Amazon Hub Parcel Locker for package deliveries. The Hub will be accessible to all package delivery companies, not just Amazon.

If you did not receive an email to sign up and activate your account, please contact Management and an email will be sent to you.

How does it work?

It’s simple. Your packages will be delivered to the Hub. You’ll receive a notification with a one-time pick-up code. Whenever you’re ready to pick up your package, head to the Hub. Enter the code on the screen. A door will pop open so you can grab your package.

How do I get started?

You’ll receive an email with a signup link. Sign in with your Amazon account or sign up for a free account. Then, you’ll be ready to pick up your packages at the Hub.

Want to know more?

Visit thehub.amazon.com or reach out to Management.

Breaking Down Boxes

When discarding boxes in the recycling bins, please be sure to break down the boxes first as they take up a lot of room.

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.

Contact Information

In the event you change your email address or phone number, please remember to advise management.  This allows us to continue to communicate important reminders to you!

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.

Face Coverings Approved

The Board of Directors have approved a rule requiring residents, visitors, contractors, vendors, and any other person seeking entry to the Association to wear face over their nose and mouth while in the common areas of the Association. This will continue in effect until a declaration from the Governor for the State of California or the Mayor (or Public Health official to whom the responsibility is delegated) removes the requirement that everyone in California must wear a mask or face covering when outside their home, with limited exceptions.

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.

Covid-19 Updates

For more updates regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus), please go to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  website https://www.cdc.gov/ or the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Website https://www.sandiegocounty.gov/content/sdc/hhsa/programs/phs/community_epidemiology/dc/2019-nCoV.html .

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

In addition, please do your utmost to protect yourself and your neighbors. Carry sanitizing wipes with you when entering and exiting locations. Wash your hands at every opportunity. Use hand sanitizer when you cannot wash your hands. We are all in this together.

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.

Avoid Sink Backups

The disposal may grind it, but Alicante’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 Alicante’s drains flowing.

Pet Disturbances

While Alicante is a dog friendly building, please manage your pets so that they do not diminish others’ enjoyment of Alicante. This includes cleaning up pet accidents and taking the necessary measures to limit barking. Per the Association’s governing documents, pet-related violations can lead to fines. Please show respect to your neighbors and help keep Alicante a pet-friendly building.

Face Coverings Approved

The Board of Directors have approved a rule requiring residents, visitors, contractors, vendors, and any other person seeking entry to the Association to wear face over their nose and mouth while in the common areas of the Association.
