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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
SanDiegoCounty.gov is a resource for staying up to date with the guidelines and mandates during this time.
