October 2019 Newsletter
Posted By mplascencia on October 8, 2019
To the Owners and Tenants of Alicante,
The October 2019 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2019 in the Community Room beginning at 6:30pm.
EV Charging Stations
The Association has received approval for the EV Charging Stations. Construction work is set to begin on Monday, October 7th. The construction is expected to take around two weeks. Please be aware that excessive drilling noise will be heard in the garage and possibly throughout the building during the hours of 8am to 5pm. We will provide further information regarding the registration process close to the completion date.
Holding Doors Open
Please refrain from holding or propping Common Area doors and gates open for longer than 30 seconds as the Building Engineer and Management receive notifications for each occurance.
Alicante Holiday Party
Mark your calendars the holiday party has been scheduled for Thursday, December 5th. More details to follow. If you would like to volunteer to help with set up or clean up please contact Management.
Alicante’s Insurance renewed on October 1st. Many of your own providers ask for a copy of the certificate of insurance. A copy of the new certificate can be found on the homeowner portal or on the Alicante website at the following Link.
Water Cost Savings
Did you know that one of the single largest line items in Alicante’s budget goes to our water usage. While San Diego is currently not in a drought, this link provides helpful tips on how you can help conserve water and save money in the process.
Lloyd’s Pest Control offers homeowners a discounted rate of $25 for service to the interior of the units. If interested, please contact them at 1-800-223-2847.
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.
As a reminder, no unit may keep more than an aggregate of two (2) dogs and/or cats.
Moves/Deliveries Price Increase
Please note that the rate for a 4-hour window has increased as of September 1st from $160 to $200.
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.
Per the Association’s Rules and Regulations, if you are renting your unit, please remember to send Management a copy of your lease. This information is necessary for many reasons, mainly for emergency purposes. In the event of an evacuation, the authorities require us to have an updated list of who is in the building. By not providing your lease and tenant’s information, we will not know who to look for if there was an evacuation situation. This information is kept confidential. Please remember to submit this information every time you have a new tenant! You can submit to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
