January 2020 Board of Directors Meeting 

The January 2020 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Thursday, January 23, 2020 in the Community Room beginning at 6:30pm. 

Holiday Tree Pick- Up

Global Disposal will be picking up Christmas trees on Tuesday, January 7, 2020.

If you would like to dispose of your tree, please bring it down to motorcycle spaces 1, 2, and 3 on the P1 Level. They are located to the left of the ramp (if you are facing it, as if you are leaving the garage). 

To ensure pickup, please place your tree in the designated location no later than 6:00am the morning of the 7th.  Please be sure to clean up any needles your tree leaves behind.  

Holiday Decorations

As a reminder, all holiday decorations should be removed from doors and balconies by Friday, January 10th.

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 mplascencia@actionlife.com.

Alicante Insurance 

Alicante’s Insurance renewed on October 1, 2019. 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.

Pest Control

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. 

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.

Pet Limit

As a reminder, no unit may keep more than an aggregate of two (2) dogs and/or cats.

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.

Moves/Deliveries Price Increase

Please note that the rate for a 4-hour window has increased as of September 1, 2019 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. 

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.

Rental Leases

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 mplascencia@actionlife.com or kneal@actionlife.com

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!
