Parkway Project: Finished, But Just Beginning

Urban Landscaping completed the parkway grass removal project this month.  While things may look a little sparse now, the plants and planting locations were chosen based on the size of the plants once they mature.  So the best is yet to come!  Please keep your dogs away from the new plants to help them grow as quickly as possible and help restore the gravel if it gets kicked out.

Hydrojetting

The Association has contracted with Countywide Mechanical Systems to perform Hydrojetting of the horizontal sanitary pipes in the garage and cabling of the kitchen plumbing stacks. This is scheduled for the week of April 5th.  Please RSVP to Action about how you will be providing access to you unit.  Access to the townhomes will not be required.

Water Heaters

There was recently another unit that experienced a leaking water heater.  Fortunately, it was detected before the catch pan overflowed and was replaced without any water damage taking place.  Construction of 1Mission was completed in 2009, as such original water heaters may be getting close to or potentially past the unit’s life expectancy.  If you are considering replacing your current unit with a tankless system, an Architectural application must be submitted and approved by the Architectural Committee prior to any work taking place. The City of San Diego also requires that a permit is obtained for these replacements.  For more information visit     
https://www.sandiego.gov/development-services/permits/simple-permits.

Leak Detectors

This is the small electronic box next to the water heater that connects to a sensor in the catch pan under the heater.  Please make sure the batteries in your leak detector are good.  You can do this by turning the unit off and then back on and making sure it sounds a short alarm.  As with smoke detectors, batteries in these devices should be replaced at scheduled intervals.  There are also detectors on the market that can send you an email or text alert if a leak is detected.

March 2021 Annual Meeting

The Association’s Annual Meeting and Election was held on Monday, March 8, 2021.  Because William Persky was no longer an owner as of the election he was disqualified.  Jeff Weller was elected as a write-in candidate.  At the organizational meeting directly following the election Chris Weaver was appointed President, Kurt Gering as Vice President, Andrea Bauer as Treasurer, and Jeff Weller as Secretary.  Christy Mickel continues to represent the Commercial Owner as the Director at Large.  Please direct any issues with the restaurant or parking areas to Action.  Board meetings will continue to be held on the first Monday of the month, with open session starting at 6pm.

Carpet Replacement and Painting

It is nearing time to replace the carpet in the hallways.  However, the Developer Defect Repair construction will commence soon and will likely require repairs in many of the units.   Because of this the Association will hold off on carpet replacement and hallway painting until after construction is finished so as to avoid damage and start fresh after repairs are complete.

Vendors in the Building

Please be reminded that vendors are only permitted to perform work in the building between 8am-5pm Monday-Friday.  Non-emergency work outside of those hours, on the weekends, or on holidays is not permitted.  If you are going to have work done in your unit that is noisy please contact Action so that notices can be posted as a courtesy to your neighbors.

COVID-19, Face Coverings and Elevator Etiquette

Please be aware that the California face covering mandate applies to the hallways and common areas at 1Mission which are considered public spaces.  The full policy including exemptions can be found at:

https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/guidance-for-face-coverings.aspx

If you are planning to have any work done in your unit or services provided by a vendor, you are responsible for ensuring they adhere to the requirements.

The requirement for social distancing also applies to the elevators, so please avoid crowding the elevators and be understanding if your neighbors may wish to travel in the elevators alone.

Please do not press the elevator buttons with your shoes as this is very unsanitary for your neighbors.

February 2021 Newsletter

Cushion Update

The Association’s cushion vendor was able to fabricate extra cushions from the fabric from the first order, so we now have a full complement of cushions for the seven teak chairs on the patio.  The Common Area Committee (CAC) is cleaning and waterproofing the existing cushions to extend their life so some may be missing from the cushion lockers for the next week or two.  As part of this effort, the CAC has observed a lot of pet hair on the cushions.  Please use a towel or sheet if you wish to share the seat with your furry friend, as some residents may have pet allergies or don’t want to get pet hair on their clothes.  Please return the cushions to the storage bins when you are finished to help prevent additional thefts.

Plumbing

The Association has contracted with Countywide Mechanical Systems to perform Hydrojetting of the horizontal sanitary pipes in the garage and cabling of the kitchen plumbing stacks. This is tentatively scheduled for the week of April 5th.  Action Property Management will be providing scheduling information as the date nears.  This will require access to all units.  Based on recommendations from several vendors for maintenance of the common plumbing lines, only units on the 5th and 3rd floors will have the cabling through the kitchen sinks, meaning the underneath of the sink will need to be cleared for this work.  4th floor units will need to be accessed just to verify there are not any backups while the work is being performed.  At this time, it is not anticipated that access to townhomes will be required.    

Please do not put grease, oil, coffee grounds, egg shells, potato peels, etc., or “flushable” wipes down the drains to avoid backups that can cause flooding in your, or your neighbor’s, units.  Keep in mind that the grinding teeth in garbage disposals wear out and may not be grinding food waste sufficiently to avoid backups.

The Association does not currently have a preferred plumber.

March 2021 Annual Meeting

The Association’s Annual Meeting and Election will be held on Monday, March 8, 2021 as a virtual meeting.  Owners should have received a ballot by now.  If you have not, please contact Action Property Management.  In order to comply with the meeting notice requirements, Election Inspectors will be present in the 4th floor elevator lobby from 5:40pm until 6:00pm to collect ballots that have not been mailed in, but no physical meeting will be held there. Owners can join the meeting via zoom at https://actionlife.zoom.us/j/96983049778.  Once the Inspectors have reported the results of the voting the new Board will hold an organizational meeting to appoint board positions via the same zoom link.

Grass Replacement Project Update

The grass replacement project is scheduled to commence the week of March 1st.  The grass will be replaced with crushed granite, boulders, and plantings, and the spray irrigation will be replaced with drip irrigation.  Since most of the grass has died there will be no need to apply any herbicides.

January 2021 Newsletter

Happy New Year!

Christmas Tree Disposal

Due to low demand last year and increased vendor costs, there will not be a dumpster on site for Christmas trees.  Please dispose of your tree at one of the city’s tree recycling drop off locations.  Information can be found at https://www.sandiego.gov/environmental-services/recycling/events/christmas  The nearest location is Mission Bay.

HOA Fee Changes

Please remember monthly HOA fees increased effective January 1st.  Be sure to update your monthly payment amount if you are setup for auto pay.  Late fees will be assessed if your account is not paid in full by the 15th of each month.

Security Update

At the January 4th Open Session meeting the Board approved a proposal to add additional fencing in the parking garage in an effort to address verified access to the building by individuals who jump over the fence into the homeowner parking areas on G1 and G2.  The fencing will be extended to the ceiling on G1 and around the ramp walls.  The Board and the Common Area Committee are evaluating steps that can be taken to prevent further theft of our patio cushions.

Developer Defect Update

The City has reviewed the plans to address the garage flooding issue.  Based on the City’s request for additional information the Board approved contracts at the January meeting for Structural and Electrical Engineering consulting services.  The Board also approved a contract for the design of a solution to the negative air pressure problem in the building.

Trash Guidelines

Please do not put long items down the trash chute, such as brooms, mops, or similar items.  If the item is longer than the trash chute diameter then it should be taken to the trash room since these items cause the trash chute to become blocked.

The trash dumpster is typically emptied Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings so the longest time between pickups is over the weekend.  If you can defer emptying your trash to a weekday it will help avoid dumpster overflows, which can be costly to clean up.

Pest Control Changes

The Association was notified by our pest control vendor of a change in the chemicals used in the rodent bait traps.  The required disclosure notice that is in the mailroom has been updated with the changes.

Pet Etiquette

In accordance with the 1Mission’s Rules & Regulations please keep the following in mind when it comes to your pets:

  • Pets are required to be on a leash in all Common areas of the building, which includes the patio. 
  • Pets are not permitted to defecate or urinate within any portion of the Association property, which includes the courtyard and the walls around the exterior of the building.

Patio Umbrellas

Residents are welcome to adjust the placement of the umbrellas, but please be mindful to keep the umbrella fabric a safe distance away from the fireplace chimney and barbeque grills.

Grass Replacement Project Update

The Common Area Committee (CAC) has been working on a project to remove the grass from the parkways on Fort Stockton Drive and Falcon Street.  The plan is to have the grass replaced with crushed granite, boulders, and plantings.  The Board approved awarding the project to Urban Landcare and the design is being finalized.
