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.
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.
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
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:
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.
