Updated Association Insurance Information
The Association’s insurance information was renewed at the September 24th Board meeting. The updated insurance information is now available on the Vivo Portal. Please contact Management directly if you would like to request a copy of the new declaration page or if you have any general questions or concerns.
Management would like to urge all owners who have been contacted by Nautilus to please schedule their preconstruction investigations accordingly. Please note that postponing the scheduling process will also delay the investigation phase. In the event that you have not been contacted or have any questions or concerns regarding the schedule, please contact Lindsay O’Donnell. Please see below for her contact information.
Office: (858) 939-1536
Mobile: (619) 323-6794
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding reconstruction, please contact the Management Office.
Kettner Traffic Complaints
As you may know, the pedestrian crossing at Kettner Blvd and “A” Street can be challenging and dangerous. Members requested that contact information for traffic enforcement be provided to the membership so that residents can report incidents as they occur. In researching for the best contact to provide, it was determined that complains should be made to City Council Member, Chris Ward, in order to address this issue. Residents are also instructed to contact the Traffic Division to report incidents. Please find the Traffic Division and Chris Ward’s contact information below:
Please make sure to copy the General Manager, Greyson Connelly, on all emails. Please contact the Management Office with any questions or concerns you may have.
Please be reminded that all items being disposed of must be properly bagged. Loose items and trash must not be thrown down the trash chute as this creates a mess in the main refuse room and within the trash chute itself. Also, please be reminded that glass and recyclables should not be thrown down the trash chute. Small amounts of recyclables can be placed in the blue recycle bins located on each floor, but large amounts must be broken down and placed in the receptacle located in the main refuse room on parking level one (1). Please make sure to inform your housekeeping staff and guests of these requirements and thank you for your attention towards these matters!
Committee Formation Requests
During the August 27th Board of Directors meeting, a member of the Association requested to form a new Neighborhood Committee. The Neighborhood Committee will serve the purpose of monitoring public and/or private initiatives to evaluate the impact of those initiatives on the Sapphire Tower property and membership.
Also, the Association is still looking for members to volunteer on one or more of the following Committees:
Landscaping—Requires two (2) additional members to activate the Committee.
Social—Requires three (3) members to activate the Committee.
Please fill out the attached Committee Volunteer form and submit the form to Management if you are interested in participating on one or more of the Association’s Committees. Feel free to contact Management if you have any questions or concerns relating to Committee involvement.
