Welcome to 1Mission!

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.

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.

December 2020 Newsletter

Security Update

Please do not leave keys, fobs, or valuables in your car.  The recent rekeying of the common area locks cost the association over $1,700.  The Common Area Committee is evaluating additional measures for improving the security of the residential parking areas.  At the November meeting the Board approved purchasing a heavier door with a 3-point lock for the storage area on G1 that was broken into twice.

Upcoming Mailers

The Board approved the 2021 budget and reserve study at the November meeting.  Action has sent the informational packet to owners via email and a hard copy is following in the mail.  If your monthly dues are setup as an automatic payment, please update your payment amount starting in January to avoid late fees and interest.

The request for Board candidates will also be mailed out soon.  There are 3 seats open in 2021, so if you would like to be involved in running the Association please submit your candidate statement before January 4th.

Holiday Decorations

Holiday decorations are allowed from the day after Thanksgiving until January 10th.  No owner or resident may place decorations on plants or other areas within the Association’s common areas.  Please ensure that holiday lights do not disturb other residences.

Holiday Gratuity

The Association does not provide holiday bonuses to vendors that work in the building.  Based on feedback from the membership, it was determined several years ago that recognizing 1Mission’s building engineer and janitorial staff during the holiday season would reside with individual owners.  This is a very delicate topic that people may handle in very different ways. The Association wants to provide owners the ability to recognize the people who care for our building as he/she determines as appropriate.

Recycling

During the holiday season the building will naturally encounter an increase in cardboard boxes and other recyclable materials.  Please remember to break down all boxes before putting them in the blue recycle bins.  If the bins are full please hand carry recyclables to the large bins located in G1 and G2.  The floor in each of the small trash rooms must remain clear of any trash or recycling. 

Grass Replacement Project Update

As mentioned in the May newsletter, 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 first RFP was sent out to multiple vendors in March 2020, however due to COVID-19, vendors were not in a position to respond to the RFP due to staffing challenges.  A second RFP was sent out in the fall, and to date the Association received 2 proposals that were reviewed at the November Board meeting.  The CAC and the Board felt the proposals were not comparable so additional vendors have been identified and proposals requested.

October 2020 Newsletter

Building Engineer

Our Building Engineer, Luis Green, has accepted a position as an Electrician and his last day at 1Mission is Friday October 23rd.  Please join the Board in congratulating him on the next step in his career and thank him for his service at 1Mission.  Luis’ replacement will be his father, Luis Green Sr.  Due to previous commitments Luis Sr. will be on site Wednesdays and Fridays.  Please schedule HVAC or Cable access on those days.

Security Update

There was a bicycle stolen from one of the storage areas last weekend.  When it was discovered it was noted that the deadbolt was not locked.  Please make sure to secure the deadbolt on the storage room door when you exit.  The storage cages have safety latches inside to prevent getting locked in the cage.  It appears that thieves have tools to activate the safety latches from outside and enter the cage.  You may want to consider adding a chain lock to the door.  An example of how to do this without interfering with the adjacent cage can be seen in the storage area in the northeast corner of the G2 parking area.  It is recommended to report thefts to the police and property management company.

Elevator Update

The elevators have gone out of service several times recently.  The Common Area Committee is working with Mitsubishi to determine the causes of the failures.  A service repair report from Mitsubishi noted there are signs that the doors have been forcibly prevented from closing which can cause damage.  The service visits to put the elevators back in service are quite expensive so please let the doors close once they indicate “Door Closing”.

Appliance Replacement

Are you getting ready to replace an oven, water heater or dryer?  Please be aware the voltage required for these appliances is 208 volts at 1Mission vs. 240 volts in single family homes.  Not all appliances that are designed for 240v will operate at 208v or work as well.  For example older models of Samsung and LG dryers would operate at 208v but the current models do not.

Grass Replacement Project

As mentioned in the May newsletter, the Common Area Committee 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 decomposed granite, boulders, and plantings.  A request for proposal and statement of work was sent out in May but no companies responded.  A refined RFP/SOW was sent this month to 4 landscaping companies for bids and 2 have committed to provide a proposal in time for the next Board meeting.

November 2020 Board Meeting

The November Board meeting will be virtual meeting held on November 9th to accommodate our manager Kelly Thomson’s vacation.  Kelly will be out of the office October 20-27 and unable to prepare for the usual meeting date.  During her absence Community Manager Martha Barragan will be filling in.  She can be reached at mbarragan@actionlife.com  Please note that all emergencies, work orders or any basic community information can be obtained on the resident portal or by calling 800-400-2284 for the fastest response to your questions.

COVID-19

Please be advised the Board and Action Property Management have worked with ProTec Janitorial Services to implement measures to address concerns about the transmission of COVID-19.  Our day porter, Raquel, is cleaning and sanitizing the entrance door surfaces and elevator buttons at least 3 times per day and has increased cleaning and sanitizing of the mail room and recycling bin lids as well as the trash chute handles.  Residents are responsible for the entrances to their units so that Raquel can focus on the common areas. 

Residents are welcome to disinfect surfaces as they enter and exit the property on the weekends, or remain at home, as ProTec is not on site on weekend days.

Please do not discard wipes or other non-toilet paper products in toilets as this may cause a backup.
