To the Owners and Tenants of Alicante,

Board Meeting

The next Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Thursday, July 25, 2024, in the Community Room and via Zoom with Open Session starting at 6:30pm. We hope to see you there!

Committee Volunteers Needed

If you are looking for a way to be more involved with the Community, consider joining one of the following Committees:

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.

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. 

Alicante is on YouTube

Remember that Alicante Owners Association has an official YouTube Channel. Management will be posting videos from past and future events on the channel. Please note that videos will only be accessed via the links provided.

Balcony Lockout

It has been brought to our attention that Residents have been getting locked out on their balconies due to the locking mechanism on their balcony/patio/deck doors. While vendors like Barrier Glazing are able to replace the locking mechanism, the Board of Directors and Owner Maintenance Committee are looking into alternative options. In the meantime, we do recommend that you do not close the door behind you when stepping out into the balcony/deck/patios to prevent being locked out.

Resident Conduct

Pursuant to Rules and Regulations, section Resident and Guest Conduct, page 13, #1: Loud or unruly conduct anywhere on the Alicante property, including your residence, which disturbs the comfort and quiet enjoyment of others, is prohibited. In addition, after 9:00 PM volume must be significantly reduced in order to not disturb other residents. For a full list of the Association’s rules regarding noise levels, please refer to the Association Rules and Regulations section Resident and Guest Conduct, page 13, #1-8.
