July 2019 Newsletter

Posted By on July 5, 2019

To the Owners and Tenants of Alicante,

Garage Break In
Alicante recently experienced a 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 during afterhours. (619) 488-9064
• In the event of an emergency, please call 9-1-1.
• Do not pause in front of the garage sensors

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.

Board Meeting
The July 2019 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Thursday, July 25, 2019 in the Community Room beginning at 6:30pm.

4th of July Holiday
Action Property Management, Professional Maintenance Systems (Janitorial), and Able Engineering will be closed on Thursday, July 4, 2019 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!

Everyone loves a good BBQ in the Summer. When using the grill outside please make sure you remember to turn off the fire and gas when completed. The gas shut off is located underneath the grill inside the cabinet doors.

Window Washing
Monday, July 22, 2019 window washing will begin. Please look out for a full schedule as the date approaches.

Dusty Refrigerator Coils
The Owners Maintenance Committee has prepared a new bulletin describing how to clean your fridge’s cooling coils. Dust and pet fur can clog a refrigerator’s coils, causing the fridge to run longer / use more electricity to keep its contents cold. The committee recommends cleaning refrigerator coils every 6 months if you have pets, yearly if not. More information can be found in the bulleting: Alicante OMC – Refrigerator Coil Cleaning.

While the City of San Diego does permit Styrofoam packaging and containers to be recycled, our vendor Waste Management does not. Please continue to discard Styrofoam and plastic bags in the trash.

Pest Control
Lloyd’s Pest Control offers homeowners a discounted rate for service to the interior of the units. If interested, please contact them at 1-800-223-2847.

Next Refresh Project
The Common Area Enhancement Committee has closed their community spaces survey and has received your survey feedback related to the next the refresh project.

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.

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!

Parking in Association Spaces
Management would like to remind residents that parking in spaces other than what is deeded to the resident or rented may result in a tow. Please do not park in any space without permission of the Owner or deeded to the property. If your vehicle is towed it will be at the expense of the Owner.

EV Chargers Approved
Based on a ballot count in the 28-Feb Board meeting, the proposal to install EV chargers in association-owned parking spaces has been approved. Plans have been submitted to the City which can take 1 – 2 months for approval. More information soon!

Maintenance Responsibilities
In case you are ever curious as to who is responsible for what, or find yourself in a situation where you don’t know if you should call Management or your own vendor, please see the Maintenance Matrix posted in the mailroom glass case. We pulled this information from the Alicante CC&Rs.

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.

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!

Just a reminder that all moves and deliveries must be scheduled with Management at least a week in advance. Please note that the rate for a 4-hour window has increased to $160. 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.

Monthly Association Meetings
Just a reminder that each month’s Owners Board meetings includes an Open Session where Owners may discuss concerns with the Board, as well as listen while the Board discusses Association matters. Owners are encouraged to attend!
