March 2020 Board of Directors Meeting
The March 2020 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Thursday, March 26, 2020 in the Community Room beginning at 6:30pm.
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 occurrence.
When using the weights in the gym, please place the weights back on the rack or gently on the mat between sets. The dropping of weights can be heard throughout the building.
Smoke Detector Maintenance
If your condo’s smoke detectors are making noises / chirps, they may need attention. The following bulletins may be helpful:
- Smoke Detector Battery
- Smoke Detector Cleaning
- Smoke Detector Replacement
All OMC bulletins are available online: http://alicantehoa.com/owner-maintenance-committee/
If you choose to walk your trash down to the P1 level trash room please make sure to dispose of the trash in the container under the trash chute, as that bin is the next to be disposed of.
Trash Disposal in Common Areas
Management would like to remind residents to pick up any trash they leave behind while traveling through the Association as we must all do our part to preserve the appearance of Alicante.
EV Charging Stations Activated
The electric vehicle charging stations are officially activated and ready for use. You can find the Electric Vehicle Charging Station Use Policy and Driver Connection Instructions at the following link.
Please follow the Driver Connection Instructions to request to connect to Alicante. Once Management receives the completed “Attachment A” form found in the Electric Vehicle Charging Station Use Policy and the $500.00 non-transferable registration fee, Management will approve your connection request and provide you an EV Sticker to be placed on your vehicle. If you have any questions, please contact Management at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
Avoid Costly 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.
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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Short Term Rentals
Management would like to remind residents you may not lease a unit for a period of less than thirty (30) days. Units that are leased or listed for lease for a period of less than thirty (30) days are subject to a hearing and $5,000.00 fine per occurrence.
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!
