Zuleica Name Change

Zuleica has recently legally changed her name due to personal reasons to Sinai (pronounced See-nah-e) Rojas Nuñez.

Budget Mailer Sent Out

The Budget mailer was previously mailed and emailed to the membership for the start of the December 1st fiscal year. Be sure to review the mailer and contact your bank if you have autopay set up to change the amount. If you are set up on Revo, the new assessment amount will automatically be changed.

Community Room Book Exchange

The books in the Community Room have been relocated to the to cabinets located under the counter.

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.   

Get It Done San Diego

You may want to install the free Android or iOS app on your mobile device so that you can report neighborhood concerns like potholes, tree hazards, side walk repairs, etc. For more information, see this webpage: https://www.sandiego.gov/get-it-done

Leases 

If you are renting out your unit, you are required to provide Management with a copy of your tenant’s lease.

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.

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.
