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 the option of 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.
Holiday decorations are allowed from the day after Thanksgiving until January 10th. This includes white light strings as well. 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.
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.
Christmas Tree Disposal
In previous years a compost dumpster was provided by our trash vendor at no additional charge for Christmas tree disposal. After switching vendors this is no longer the case and it would cost the Association $450 to provide this. Due to low demand 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 increase 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.
There were several instances of vehicle break ins recently on the G2 level of the garage. Review of the security camera footage indicates that for at least 1 of the instances a pedestrian was standing near the south stairwell and followed a vehicle down the ramp once they had turned at the bottom of the ramp. Security will be improved if you wait for the gate to close after entering or leaving. As a reminder, please do not leave fobs or common area keys in your vehicle.
The 1A elevator has been out of operation for some time. Drive Parts were required to be shipped from Japan. They arrived last week and were installed but further parts are now deemed to have been damaged by the old drive and have been ordered. Thankyou for your patience while repairs are being made. Please note that Raquel needs to lock out the 1B elevator for a minute or 2 everyday around 3pm to clean it so if the call button doesn’t work around that time, please try again shortly.
Mission Hills Nursery will be reworking the large planter on the paseo with the tall bamboo. They will be installing root barriers around the bamboo to prevent it from starving out the other plantings. They will remove the dianella and install succulents from around the property that have outgrown their current locations. Once the work is scheduled an eblast will be sent.
The rains this week caused flooding in the G2 garage. This is the result of a developer defect that undersized the sump pump that pumps out water from the roof drains and patio drains to the street. The Association is working with Cornerstone Managing Partners to solve this problem. Plans have been approved by the City and bids are being procured for the work to implement the fix. Until this work is completed items in the storage cages should be raised off of the floor to avoid water damage.
