Building Engineer

Our Building Engineer, Luis Green, was the subject of a horrific attack on July 11th.  While he recovers, we will have a temporary Engineer, Antonio Perez.  Due to previous commitments Antonio will be on site Mondays and Fridays.  Please schedule HVAC or Cable access on those days.  For more information about Luis or to help him out please see https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-luis-green

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.

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:

https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/CDPH%20Document%20Library/COVID-19/Guidance-for-Face-Coverings_06-18-2020.pdf

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.

Security Update

There have been 2 vehicle break-ins and 2 storage cage break-ins recently, including at least one during the middle of a weekday afternoon.  Please do not leave valuables in your vehicle and make sure it is locked.  Footage from the security cameras has shown thieves jumping over both the G1 and G2 fences as well as a thief on a bicycle following a vehicle through the gate.  Be aware of your surroundings and exercise caution when entering or leaving the garage.

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.  If your cage is in a storage room, please make sure to secure the deadbolt on the storage room door when you exit.  The storage rooms were broken into when the building was new before the deadbolts were installed.

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.  The primary purpose for this change is to ensure the Association is in compliance with water runoff requirements from the City of San Diego’s Stormwater department. This requirement was not in effect at the time 1Mission was being built, however a new law went into effect several years ago that the City is now enforcing.  The Association has received two violations specific to this issue, which can range from $10K to $15K per violation.  To date, the Association has been able to work with the City to forego paying any violations with the understanding 1Mission would make the necessary changes to bring the community in compliance with the water runoff requirements.  A request for proposal and statement of work have been created and sent to 3 landscaping companies for bids however due to COVID-19 related staffing issues none of the landscapers have been able to respond yet.

Planter Work

Please be aware members of the Common Area Committee and Mission Hills Nursery will be working in the planters to reconfigure the irrigation and drains.  This work is also related to the stormwater law enforcement and is being done to prevent water runoff into the building sump, which then gets pumped out to the street.

Annual Fire Inspection

HCI will be on site September 14th and 15th to perform the State mandated Annual Fire Sprinkler System inspection.  This will require access to every unit.  Residents can provide a key and waiver form to ProTec Engineering if they will not be here to provide access.  Action will be sending additional scheduling and process information, including HCI’s COVID-19 protocols, soon.

September 2020 Board Meeting

The September Board meeting will be virtual meeting held on September 14th  due to September 7th  being a Holiday.  Action will send out meeting information with how to log into the meeting.  The Open Session begins at 6:30pm, and Owners are welcome to attend.

1Mission Community Contact List

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 October.  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.list.opt.in@gmail.com by September 30th . If a number of requests are received an update will be sent earlier.


May 2020 Newsletter

Window Washing

The issues with the Association’s window washing life and safety equipment have been resolved.  Window washing is scheduled to take place starting Monday June 8th.  Please make sure your windows are closed while the workers are on site to avoid water entering your unit.  Owners are responsible for cleaning windows on their decks or patios.  Ultra Building Services is able to provide interior glass and balcony glass cleaning to all 1Mission residents. If you are interested in this service and would like a quote, please contact Carlos Lopez directly at 619.315.9697 and he will schedule a date directly with you.  Please see email from Action Property Management sent on May 28th with additional information about this service.

May 2020 Annual Meeting

The Association’s Annual Meeting and Election was held on Monday, May 5, 2020 as a virtual meeting.  An organizational meeting was held afterwards.  Kurt Gering and Bill Persky were reelected to the board.  The officer positions remain unchanged, with Chris Weaver as President, Bill Persky as Vice President, Andrea Bauer as Treasurer, and Kurt Gering as Secretary.

Please keep in mind that Board members are volunteers who are responsible for overseeing the management of the building by Action.  Issues or complaints should be directed to Action, not Board members.

June 2020 Board Meeting

The June Board meeting will be held on June 1st as a virtual meeting.  Action will send out meeting information.  The Open Session begins at 6:30pm, and Owners are welcome to attend.

Recycling Bins

Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, the building has understandably seen a significant increase in home deliveries.  In an effort to help navigate the increase in recyclable materials, please breakdown boxes prior to disposing in recycling bins.  If floor specific bins are full or you have an oversized box, please take recycling to the large bin located in the G1 trash room.  The Association’s day porter, Raquel, uses the bin located in the G2 recycling room as it is lower and more accessible for her to empty the bins from each floor.

Grass Replacement Project

As requested by the Board, 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.  The primary purpose for this change is to ensure the Association is in compliance with water runoff requirements from the City of San Diego’s Stormwater department. This requirement was not in effect at the time 1Mission was being built, however a new law went into effect several years ago that the City is now enforcing.  The Association has received two violations specific to this issue, which can range from $10K to $15K per violation.  To date, the Association has been able to work with the City to forego paying any violations with the understanding, 1Mission would make the necessary changes to bring the community in compliance with the water runoff requirements.  A request for proposal and statement of work have been created and sent to 3 landscaping companies for bids. 

Homeless Population 

Homelessness is an extremely complex social problem that impacts the quality of life in our community.  There are no easy solutions.  In an effort to understand and address this issue, the Board has looked for guidance from the City of San Diego and the San Diego Police Department (SDPD). 

The Association has a “Letter of Agency” on file with the local police, in conjunction with NO TRESPASSING signs located at the two entrances of the Paseo area that include specific verbiage as outlined in the guidance from the police department. 

What does this mean?  Having a Letter of Agency on file authorizes the SDPD to enter the property to investigate suspicious activity and to arrest people who are trespassing or committing a crime.

What can you do?  The best thing for homeowners to do is to contact the SDPD if the presence of the homeless population concerns you.  The more homeowners who call, the more responsive the SDPD will be in addressing the complaints.  Police resources (regular patrols not relating to emergency calls) are reallocated regularly based on the police reports that are filed.

If you witness a homeless person on the property, residents are encouraged to call the SDPD non-emergency number at 619-531-2000 or 858-484-3154, to report the situation.  If you are unable to call, there is the option of reporting non-emergencies on-line (see below), which can help the police gain a better idea of the frequency that occurs at 1Mission.

If it is an emergency situation where a crime is in progress or about to happen, and involves serious personal injury, property damage or property loss, call 911.

Additional information on dealing with homelessness can be found at: https://www.sandiego.gov/sites/default/files/neighborhood_policing.pdf

Reporting of Non-Emergencies:  It is important for homeowners to report ANY type of crime that occurs in or around 1Mission.  SDPD allocates resources based on the number of police reports filed, therefore, if the police see trends relating to certain types of crimes (e.g. package thefts, thefts from the garage, etc.) they will increase patrols in the area. Most non-emergency police reports can be filed on line at https://www.sandiego.gov/police/services/nonemergencies, or you can call the SDPD’s 24-hour number for non-emergency calls and general information at (619) 531-2000.

COVID-19

Please be advised that the Board and Action Property Management are working 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.  We request that residents be 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 those days.

Please do not discard wipes or other non-toilet paper products in the toilets. 

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

1Mission Community Contact List

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 July.  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.list.opt.in@gmail.com by June 30.  If a number of requests are received an update will be sent earlier.

May 2020 Annual Meeting

The Association’s Annual Meeting and Election will be held on Monday, May 5, 2020 as a virtual meeting.  Owners should have received a ballot by now.  If you have not please contact Action Property Management.  In order to comply with the meeting notice requirements, Election Inspectors will be present in the 4th floor elevator lobby from 5:40pm until 6:00pm to collect ballots that have not been mailed in, but no physical meeting will be held there.  Once the Inspectors have reported the results of the voting the new Board will hold an organizational meeting to appoint board positions.

Access Codes

In 2018 1Mission experienced unauthorized access to the building and multiple package thefts. In an effort to mitigate the situation the Board approved rekeying the common area locks, eliminating the front door access codes for residents and assigning individual codes to vendors.  The primary purpose of this action was to address resident safety and building security.   Management recently changed the vendor codes and will continue to do so as needed.  Please do not ask vendors for their codes as this will cause the codes to be changed again, which disrupts deliveries for other residents.  If you need access without a key or fob please contact Management to request that your cell phone number be programmed into the access system so you can buzz yourself in.

Window Washing

The annual inspection of the Association’s window washing life and safety equipment revealed some deficiencies that require repair.  As a result, the semiannual window washing scheduled for May will be delayed. 

Paper Statements

Did you know that mailing paper HOA dues statements costs the Association about $600 per year?  Please consider enrolling for eStatements at https://resident.actionlife.com/  It saves money and also eliminates mail delivery time variability.  You can also set up auto-pay to avoid late fees.

February 2020 Newsletter

Cardellino

Mission Hill’s newest neighborhood restaurant Cardellino is now open.  As noted in the Association’s CC&Rs section 7.6 this can be expected to cause an increase in light, noise, odors, and pests.  The owners of Cardellino have expressed a desire to be good neighbors.  If you experience significant non-emergency issues related to the restaurant please contact Action Property Management.  Do not contact the restaurant directly, as the Association has no direct legal relationship with them since they are tenants of the Commercial Owner.

The Commercial owner’s representative and Association board member, Gina Cartwright, will be in attendance at the start of the Open Session meeting on Monday, March 2nd, to respond to questions about the restaurant or commercial parking area.

Plumbing Maintenance

Pipe Trades successfully completed plumbing maintenance on the kitchen drains in units 104-107, 301-307, 401-407, and 501-507 this month.  The Board and Management will be working with Pipe Trades to establish a routine maintenance program moving forward.

March 2020 Board Meeting

The March 2020 Board Meeting will be held on Monday, March 2, 2020 in the 4th floor elevator lobby.  Open Session will begin at 6:30pm.

Reporting of Issues to Management

If you notice a need for any non-emergency work, please contact Action so a work order can be assigned and prioritized.  Please keep in mind Board and Committee members are volunteers that work with Management to oversee the well-being of the building and community, but are not the appropriate channel for reporting issues.  All issues should be reported to the Association’s property management company or 911 if the event represents a life-threatening emergency.  Work orders can be reported on the Resident Portal and tracked or you can call 949-450-0202.   Our Manager Kelly Thomson can be reached at kthomson@actionlife.com and our Manager Assistant Kylia Neal can be reached at kneal@actionlife.com

Time Change is coming

Daylight savings time begins Sunday March 8th.  This means the gates on Falcon St. won’t open until 7am on that Sunday.  The Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends using the time change as a reminder to replace your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm batteries annually.  The U.S. Fire Association recommends replacing smoke alarms that are more than 10 years old. 

HVAC Maintenance – Friendly Reminder

Management continues to have owners schedule HVAC maintenance appointments without arranging roof access with Action.  While Action is doing their best to accommodate these real-time requests, the Association will not be responsible for costs associated with rescheduling appointments due to a lack of roof access.  While having your HVAC maintenance, you may want to ask your technician to inspect the insulation on your refrigerant lines (on the roof) and replace if needed.  The Common Area Committee has observed the foam insulation is deteriorating due to the age and harsh conditions on the roof. Please note that units on the 5th floor do not have foam insulation.

Cardellino

Our newest neighborhood restaurant Cardellino is scheduled to open January 30th in the space formerly occupied by Brooklyn Girl.  As noted in the Association’s CC&Rs section 7.6 this can be expected to cause an increase in light, noise, odors, and pests.  The owners of Cardellino have expressed a desire to be good neighbors.  If you experience significant non-emergency issues related to the restaurant please contact Action.  Do not contact the restaurant directly, as the Association has no direct legal relationship with them since they are tenants of the Commercial owner.

Plumbing Maintenance

Pipe Trades will be on site the week of February 10th to finish plumbing maintenance of the kitchen drains of units 104-107, 301-307, 401-407, and 501-507.  This work was postponed due to the need to replace the horizontal sewer pipes in the garage.  It will require access to each of the identified units, in addition to clearing of certain parking spaces in G1 to allow hydrojetting.  Action will provide more details soon.

February 2020 Board Meeting

The February 2020 Board Meeting will be held on Monday, February 3, 2020 in the 4th floor elevator lobby.  Open Session will begin at 6:30pm.

Building Engineer Responsibilities

The Building Engineer, Luis Sanchez, is responsible for maintaining the common areas of the building, under the direction of Management.  He is unable to perform work in units or perform work at the request of residents.   If you notice a need for any non-emergency work, please contact Action so that a work order can be assigned and prioritized.

Deliveries and Moves

Please contact Action if you are planning a delivery of furniture or other large items such as closet organizers etc. so they can arrange for the elevator to be padded.  If you have a significant number of items to move you will need to have Action arrange for a move coordinator.

HVAC Maintenance

When is the last time you changed your air filters, or had preventative maintenance done on your HVAC system?  If you are planning to have your equipment serviced please contact Action ahead of time to arrange access to the roof.  This is most easily facilitated if scheduled on a Tuesday or Friday when the Building Engineer is on site.  You may want to ask your technician to inspect the insulation on your refrigerant lines on the roof and replace it if needed.  The Common Area Committee has observed that the foam insulation is deteriorating due to the age and harsh conditions on the roof. Note that the units that service the 5th floor do not have this foam insulation.

Cable/Phone/Internet

Some of the equipment that provides these services is in the Telephone room in the garage.  In order to make your service calls successful, please contact Action and schedule for Tuesday or Friday when the Building Engineer is on site so that he can provide access if it is needed.

Mission Hills Central!

Are retro Video Games your thing?  On the first Tuesday of every month Thorn Brewing has free retro video game-play, 6-9pm.  Thorn is just a block away at 4026 Hawk St.  For more information see http://thorn.beer/event/portacade-at-mission-hills/2020-02-04/

December 2019 Newsletter

Happy Holidays from the Board

The Board would like to extend its wishes for a very happy and safe Holiday Season to all residents at 1Mission. We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful community and neighborhood.

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.

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.

Fobs – Upcoming Changes

The fobs have been programmed so that when used to open the swing gate to the G2 parking garage, it also opens the G1 roll up gate.  In order to reduce the wear and tear created by the G1 gate opening unnecessarily, Access Professional Systems (APS) will be on site December 11 to reconfigure the gate controllers.  Once the reconfiguration is complete, each button will operate only 1 gate, as shown.  The Falcon street exit gate will continue to operate from the vehicle detection loop on the ramp.

Water in the Garage

The water in the garage is the result of a known developer defect where the sump pump on G2 is not capable of pumping the amount of water that comes from the roof and other sources.  The Board is working with Cornerstone Managing Partners (CMP), the Association’s construction manager, and other experts to design and implement a solution that will prevent the flooding.  In the meantime, please exercise caution when there is water present in the garages, and keep all of your items in the storage areas elevated off of the concrete.

Grass Removal and Water Discharge Violations

The Association has recently received two water discharge violation notices.  The laws specific to water discharge and runoff have changed since the construction of the building and the City of San Diego is now strictly enforcing the new laws.  If the Association does not demonstrate to the City that it is actively addressing the sources of the discharges, including our grass irrigation, the City will levy fines against the Association which can escalate to $15,000 per violation.  The Common Area Committee is working with the Association’s Landscaper and CMP to prevent this.  The recommendation from CMP is to remove the grass between the sidewalk and street on Fort Stockton and Falcon and replace it with packed decomposed granite and paving stones.  The Common Area Committee will be working to provide are recommendation to the Board.

Friendly Reminders

January 2020 HOA Fees

The Association’s 2020 budget includes a 5.0% fee increase in assessments.  If your monthly dues are paid through an automatic payment process please remember to update your monthly pay amount effective January 1, 2020.

Tree Disposal

An eblast will be sent out by the community manager later this month to provide information on tree disposal procedures.

Do You Know?

The best way to report non-urgent issues or concerns is via Action’s service desk at 949-450-0202 or via the Action Portal at https://resident.actionlife.com/Account/Login and then My Community -> Work Order.  You can also email work orders to communitycare@actionlife.com  This insures issues are routed to the appropriate people, which may vary due to vacations, holidays, or other circumstances.

The Building Engineer is responsible for maintenance of the common areas.  He is not allowed to work in your units or provide opinions on your maintenance issues.  Owners are responsible for maintenance of the HVAC equipment on the roof that services your unit.

1Mission Community Contact List

The next 1Mission community contact list will be sent out in January 2020.  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.list.opt.in@gmail.com by December 31, 2019.


November 2019 Newsletter

Moves and Deliveries

1Mission continues to experience unscheduled moves and unscheduled deliveries of furniture or appliances which have resulted in damage to common area walls, scratches in the elevator and damage to floors. If you have an upcoming move or a large item delivery please contact the Manager Assistant Kylia Neal as soon as possible at kneal@actionlife.com or 949-450-0202 to schedule.  All moves and deliveries must be arranged through management unless it is to a townhome exterior entry.  Management will coordinate padding of the elevator for deliveries, communicating with JNA to schedule on-site monitoring for moves, and updating posted communication in elevators to inform the community,  Your support in helping to maintain the appearance of 1Mission is greatly appreciated.

Pipe Replacement

Cornerstone Managing Partners, the Association’s Construction Manager, along with Sherwood Mechanical have finished the replacement and re-sloping of the cast iron waste pipes in the G1 garage that go to the sewer line on Goldfinch Street.  Ivey Engineering will be on site next week to inspect the work.  Once that is completed the remainder of the plumbing preventative maintenance will be scheduled for the units in stacks 1-7.

Window Washing

The Association has scheduled for the fall window washing to take place starting Monday November 18th in order for windows to be clean as we head into the holiday season.  Owners are responsible for cleaning the windows on their decks or patios.  Ultra Building Services can provide interior glass and balcony glass cleaning to all 1Mission residents. If you are interested in this service and would like a quote, please contact Carlos Lopez directly at 619.315.9697 and he will schedule a date directly with you. 

Board Change

As specified by the Association Bylaws, the Board elected an Interim Board member at the November Board Meeting to fill the spot vacated by Bob Ritz when he moved.  Kurt Gering was elected as the interim Board Member.  Kurt previously served on the Board in the role of President and will serve until the next Annual Meeting in March 2020.  This means there will be two seats open at the next election, one for one year and one for two years. 

Meeting Date Change

The Regular Session Board Meeting has been moved to the first Monday of the month, with the next meeting scheduled for December 2th at 6:30pm.  The meeting will be held in the 4th floor elevator lobby and is open to all owners.

Broken Window Handles?

The Building Engineer was recently contacted by an owner about a broken window handle.  Windows located in each unit are the responsibility of the owner (refer to CC&Rs).  In the past owners have purchased replacement Starlight Window handles from Jesse Barrera, Barrier Glazing, LLC, (951)326-7677 C, (951)677-7372 F, jesse@barrierglazing.org.  Please be sure to identify what type of handle you need (right or left) when placing an order.

1Mission Community Contact List

There was an update to the 1Mission community contact list sent out last month.  The next update is scheduled for 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.list.opt.in@gmail.com by December 30, 2019.


October 2019 Newsletter

Be Alert!

Please be aware that two vehicles parked in the G1 resident parking area were broken into and valuables were taken.  Keep an eye out for people loitering in the garage or following through the gates, and report any suspicious activity to the San Diego Police.  They have been notified of this break in.  The Board is securing quotes for an upgrade to our security cameras as the current system is no longer able to view recordings.

Board Change

Board Member Bob Ritz has resigned due to the sale of his unit.  As specified by the Association Bylaws the Board will select an interim Board Member at the next Board Meeting to serve until the next Annual Meeting in March 2020.  This means there will be two seats open at the next election, one for one year and one for two years. 

Meeting Date Change

The Regular Session Board Meeting has been moved to the first Monday of the month, with the next meeting scheduled for November 4th at 6:30pm.  The location has yet to be determined, so please consult the elevator agenda posting when it comes out.  Since the meeting date is now at the beginning of the month, the Association may hold a meeting in December, if there is business to conduct, since there is no longer a conflict with the holidays.

Storage

Exclusive Use Areas shall not be used for storage except for areas designated as Storage Space Exclusive Use Areas on the Condominium Plan.  This means no storage in parking spaces, balconies, and patios.  Please document any violations you notice and provide it to Management.

Pipe Replacement

Cornerstone Managing Partners, the Association’s Construction Manager, secured three quotes for the replacement and re-sloping of the cast iron waste pipes in the G1 garage that go to the sewer line on Goldfinch Street.  The Board selected Sherwood Mechanical at the last meeting, and the project is scheduled to commence on November 4th.  Action sent an email to the community regarding this project on 10/17/2019 that provides information from Cornerstone with details about the project, including a link to a website Cornerstone created to provide project updates.  If you park in G2 and have a spare parking space, you may be able to help your neighbors by letting them use it during the project.  The remainder of the plumbing preventative maintenance will be scheduled for the units in stacks 1-7 as soon as the re-sloping project has been completed.  If you have questions about the Pipe Replacement project please call Cornerstone at (619) 507-9466 or email admin@cmpcorp.net

Did You Get the Memo?

Check with your neighbor to make sure they are receiving eblast notices from Action, including the Cornerstone communication sent on 10/17/2019.  If not, they should check their Junk or Spam folders and contact the Manager Assistant Kaysia Stewart at kstewart@actionlife.com if they can’t find anything.  With the upcoming construction and maintenance projects it is essential that Management can communicate effectively to the entire community including both owners and tenants.

Window Washing

The Association has scheduled for the fall window washing to take place starting Monday November 18th in order for windows to be clean as we head into the holiday season.  Additional information will be provided as the date nears.

September 2019 Newsletter

Save the Date!

1Mission’s first annual Potluck is almost here!  Join your neighbors this Sunday, September 8th from 5:00pm – 7:00pm in the courtyard.  Bring a dish to share, a beverage of your choice, and get to know your neighbors!  Tables will be set up in the courtyard, and paper plates and plastic ware will be provided.  Please bring serving utensils if your dish requires it.

Developer Defect – Volunteer needed

In an effort to evaluate the proposed design for 1Mission’s negative air pressure solution, Ivey Engineering is requesting two units to serve as pilot units to analyze the scope of the repair work so it can be bid out for the rest of the units.  This work will involve opening up the drywall in the bathrooms, installing additional equipment and ducting, after which the impacted area will be restored to its original condition.  One unit has already been identified.  If your unit is on the third or fourth floor, and you would like to volunteer, please contact Patrick Anderson (panderson@actionlife.com). 

Congratulations!

Congratulations to Jeannine Greenwell and Marty Jansen!  They were the winners of the Padres tickets that were raffled off at the August Board meeting.  The tickets were provided by one of the Association’s vendors.  Enjoy!

Construction

Prior to the commencement of any addition, alteration or construction work of any type in a Residential Unit at 1Mission, you must first determine if an Architectural application needs to be submitted based on the type of change being proposed.  Please refer to the 1Mission ARC Application and Guidelines on the Action Resident Portal at https://resident.actionlife.com for additional information.  Examples of work that will not require architectural approval include:

  • Window coverings that meet the colors allowed by the Rules and Regulations
  • Interior Painting
  • Appliance change out
  • Closet organizers (following Vibration/Fastener guidelines in the ARC application)
  • Dimmer switches
  • Interior chandelier or fan installation at existing J-box.

If you aren’t sure, please contact Management for clarification. Even if an application isn’t required, please notify Management of any noisy activities planned for your unit so that notices can be posted as a courtesy to your neighbors.

Moves

All moves into and out of the building need to be coordinated in advance with Management.  They will work with you to setup your move and schedule a move coordinator if needed who will be on site on the day of your move to pad the elevator and hallway floors, monitor the move, watch the front door, as well as determine if any damage was done during the move.  Management will work to notify residents of upcoming moves via postings in the elevator.  This is necessary to protect Association property and to keep residents informed of activities taking place in the building.

Deliveries

All deliveries of large items need to be coordinated in advance with Management so that they can arrange to have the elevator padded.  It is the owner’s responsibility to make sure that the padded elevator is used.

Meeting Room?

Several months ago the Association was informed that Ascent Realty’s community room was being repurposed and would no longer be available for monthly Association meetings.  Since that time we have been able to use the courtyard for meetings, however summer is coming to an end and we need to identify an alternative meeting location.  Do you know of any rooms in the community that could be a viable option?  Action Property Management has a meeting room located downtown which is an option, however parking can be challenging.  The goal is to find a location that makes it easy for owners to attend and be involved in the Association.

Pipe Replacement

A Request for Proposal (RFP) has been sent out to multiple vendors for the replacement and re-sloping of the cast iron waste pipes in the G1 garage.  Once the Board selects a vendor we will schedule this work as quickly as possible.  It will require vehicles in the G1 parking garage to be moved between 8am and 5pm weekdays for the duration of the project which may extend several weeks.  If you are planning to be on travel for an extended period of time please coordinate with Management or provide a neighbor with a way to move your vehicle since the exact schedule for the work is not known at this time.  If you park in G2 and have a spare spot you may be able to help your neighbors by letting them use it during the work.  The remainder of the plumbing preventative maintenance will be scheduled for the units in stacks 1-7 as soon as the re-sloping project has been completed.

Elevator Lobby Flooring Repair

The Association is working to identify a vendor to repair the damage to the 5th floor elevator lobby that occurred during a move.  Vendors contacted so far have been unwilling to do the work due to a concern for matching the existing finish.  If you are having construction done or have an upcoming move, please make sure your vendor does not tape anything to the concrete as it damages the finish.

Storage in Parking Spaces

Please remember there is no storage of personal items allowed in the parking spaces and owners are responsible for maintenance of their assigned parking spaces.

1Mission Community Contact List

There was no 1Mission community contact list sent out in July since there were no updates.  The next update is scheduled for October.  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.list.opt.in@gmail.com by September 30, 2019.
