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.


August 2019 Newsletter

Save the Date!

The 1Misson community is going to hold its first annual potluck on Sunday, September 8th from 5-7pm in the courtyard.  Bring a dish to share with your neighbors, a beverage of your choice, and get to know your neighbors!

Developer Defect

At the July HOA meeting the Board voted to hire Cornerstone Managing Partners as the General Contractor to oversee the Developer Defect Repair Construction.  The work will be split into 2 phases.   Phase 1 is the design phase, where solutions to the sump pump overflow problem and the negative air pressure issue will be designed, documented, and permitted.  As part of the design for the negative air pressure solution several units will be selected to prototype and evaluate the proposed solution.  Once phase 1 is complete the Association will have fixed quotes for those repairs and will be able to determine what other defect repairs are possible.  Phase 2 is the actual construction work to implement the solutions throughout the entire community.  Additional information will be provided throughout the process.

Welcome to our new Manager

Patrick Anderson (panderson@actionlife.com) is the new Manager for 1Mission at Action.  Patrick has experience with Developer Defect repairs and is well positioned to support 1Mission through this process now that it is getting underway.  Action has also assigned a new Manager Assistant, Kaysia Stewart (kstewart@actionlife.com).  Please contact them with issues or to schedule moves, delivery, or construction.

Plumbing

The Association has seen an increase in plumbing issues predominately-involving the kitchen sink plumbing.  We have received feedback from multiple plumbers when on-site to address backups, and they recommend to discontinue use of garbage disposals for disposal of food and grease.  Food and grease are primary contributors to clogs and backups.  It was also recommended to wipe all food scraps, sauces, and oils into the trash prior to washing dishes.  Another recommendation is that you have a way to contact the units above and below you in case of an emergency.

The Association hired Pipe Trades to perform preventative maintenance on the kitchen sink waste plumbing.  This was performed in June for units 08-16 on each floor.  It involved hydrojetting the horizontal lines in the garage first, followed by cabling the sink drains in each unit, starting on the 5th floor and going down, and then hydrojetting the horizontals a second time to remove any materials freed up by the cabling.

Pipe Trades recommended against doing units x01-x07 at that time due to pinhole leaks in the sewer lines that service those units.  The pinholes are a due to poor sloping of the pipes which causes decomposition chemicals to attack material defects in the pipe.  As a result, the Association has hired Ivey Engineering to design improved sloping.  Once the design has been completed, the Association will send the project out to bid to replace and re-slope the lines.  The remainder of the plumbing preventative maintenance will be performed on the units in stacks 1-7 as soon as the re-sloping project has been completed. 

Meeting Room?

As wonderful as the summer is, it will eventually get dark and chilly in the evenings.  We no longer have access to Ascent’s community room and need to identify an alternative meeting space.  Do you know of any rooms in the community that could be a viable option?  Action Property Management has a meeting room located downtown and 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.

Dryer Screen Cleaning

For units that have a built-in lint filter (5th floor units do not) the filter needs to be cleaned periodically to prevent buildup.  A clogged filter causes your dryer to work harder and could be hazardous.

Painting

If you are having painting done in your unit, please inform your painters to take extra care to keep paint off of the sprinkler heads.  The state-mandated inspections of the fire system include checks for paint on the sprinkler heads, which can result in a cost to the unit owner should it be necessary to replace affected heads.

Front Door

If you are having difficulties buzzing people in through the front door with your cell phone please try pressing 9 repeatedly and quickly.  Also make sure your guest tries the door on the right since the one on the left does not unlock.

LED Project

In an effort to identify a long-term energy and cost savings solution for 1Mission, the Board approved a project to replace all common area lighting, including lighting in the G1 & G2 garages, with LEDs. The project also includes replacing hallway emergency ballasts, as the current ones are incompatible.  Management will be sending an eblast out soon to inform owners of installation dates and times.  Based on the nature of the work being done, hallway walls may get scuffed up as bulbs and ballasts are replaced.  The Board is planning to have the walls cleaned, and painted as needed, once the LED project has been completed.
