October 2020 Newsletter
Posted By kthomson on December 8, 2020
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.
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.
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”.
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 email@example.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.
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.
SanDiegoCounty.gov is a resource for staying up to date with the guidelines and mandates during this time.
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:
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.

In order to stay in contact with your neighbors, please consider adding your contact information to the 1Mission community contact list. The next scheduled update to the list will be sent out in January. If you would like to be added to the list or have any changes, please send an email with your information or update to 1Mcommunity.firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31st .
