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.

Hydrojetting

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.

Water Heaters

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     
https://www.sandiego.gov/development-services/permits/simple-permits.

Leak Detectors

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:

https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/guidance-for-face-coverings.aspx

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.

February 2021 Newsletter

Cushion Update

The Association’s cushion vendor was able to fabricate extra cushions from the fabric from the first order, so we now have a full complement of cushions for the seven teak chairs on the patio.  The Common Area Committee (CAC) is cleaning and waterproofing the existing cushions to extend their life so some may be missing from the cushion lockers for the next week or two.  As part of this effort, the CAC has observed a lot of pet hair on the cushions.  Please use a towel or sheet if you wish to share the seat with your furry friend, as some residents may have pet allergies or don’t want to get pet hair on their clothes.  Please return the cushions to the storage bins when you are finished to help prevent additional thefts.

Plumbing

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 tentatively scheduled for the week of April 5th.  Action Property Management will be providing scheduling information as the date nears.  This will require access to all units.  Based on recommendations from several vendors for maintenance of the common plumbing lines, only units on the 5th and 3rd floors will have the cabling through the kitchen sinks, meaning the underneath of the sink will need to be cleared for this work.  4th floor units will need to be accessed just to verify there are not any backups while the work is being performed.  At this time, it is not anticipated that access to townhomes will be required.    

Please do not put grease, oil, coffee grounds, egg shells, potato peels, etc., or “flushable” wipes down the drains to avoid backups that can cause flooding in your, or your neighbor’s, units.  Keep in mind that the grinding teeth in garbage disposals wear out and may not be grinding food waste sufficiently to avoid backups.

The Association does not currently have a preferred plumber.

March 2021 Annual Meeting

The Association’s Annual Meeting and Election will be held on Monday, March 8, 2021 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. Owners can join the meeting via zoom at https://actionlife.zoom.us/j/96983049778.  Once the Inspectors have reported the results of the voting the new Board will hold an organizational meeting to appoint board positions via the same zoom link.

Grass Replacement Project Update

The grass replacement project is scheduled to commence the week of March 1st.  The grass will be replaced with crushed granite, boulders, and plantings, and the spray irrigation will be replaced with drip irrigation.  Since most of the grass has died there will be no need to apply any herbicides.

January 2021 Newsletter

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.

Security Update

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.

Trash Guidelines

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.

Pet Etiquette

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.

Patio Umbrellas

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.

December 2020 Newsletter

Security Update

Please do not leave keys, fobs, or valuables in your car.  The recent rekeying of the common area locks cost the association over $1,700.  The Common Area Committee is evaluating additional measures for improving the security of the residential parking areas.  At the November meeting the Board approved purchasing a heavier door with a 3-point lock for the storage area on G1 that was broken into twice.

Upcoming Mailers

The Board approved the 2021 budget and reserve study at the November meeting.  Action has sent the informational packet to owners via email and a hard copy is following in the mail.  If your monthly dues are setup as an automatic payment, please update your payment amount starting in January to avoid late fees and interest.

The request for Board candidates will also be mailed out soon.  There are 3 seats open in 2021, so if you would like to be involved in running the Association please submit your candidate statement before January 4th.

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.

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 or recycling. 

Grass Replacement Project Update

As mentioned in the May newsletter, 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 first RFP was sent out to multiple vendors in March 2020, however due to COVID-19, vendors were not in a position to respond to the RFP due to staffing challenges.  A second RFP was sent out in the fall, and to date the Association received 2 proposals that were reviewed at the November Board meeting.  The CAC and the Board felt the proposals were not comparable so additional vendors have been identified and proposals requested.

October 2020 Newsletter

Building Engineer

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.

Security Update

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.

Elevator Update

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”.

Appliance Replacement

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 mbarragan@actionlife.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.

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.

August 2020 Newsletter

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

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 .

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.

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.

March 2020 Newsletter

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.

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.

Mission Hills Central!

Did you know we have a movie theater in our neighborhood?  Cinema under the Stars is right across the street between Lefty’s and Tops.  To see what movies are coming see https://www.topspresents.com/
