Management would like to urge all owners who have been contacted by Nautilus to schedule their investigations accordingly.

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 residents may not utilize their neighbors carts located in the garage without consent from their neighbors first. All residents are encouraged to purchase a wheeled cart for their own convenience. Note that only one (1) cart per unit is allowed to be stored in the garage. Be advised that the Association has one (1) small wheeled cart that may be available for use in the event that one is needed.
Committee Formation Requests
During the August 27th Board of Directors meeting, a member of the Association requested that the Board permit the formation of 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 a 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.
Resident Guests Reminders
Management would like to remind all residents that guests must be accompanied by residents at all times when in the common areas. This includes, but is not limited to the Fitness Center, Club room, BBQ area and the Pool and Spa. Please contact management with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you!
As a courtesy to all those that utilize the BBQ, please ensure that you clean the grill so that others can enjoy it throughout the day. Cleaning the grill can be completed by running the flame to char any remaining food debris on the grill, which can then be scraped off by utilizing one of the wire brushes located in the BBQ drawer.
Also, as a helpful reminder, please find the operating instructions for the BBQ below:
- Open the grill hood completely. Examine the interior to be sure it appears normal. Do not attempt to light the grill with the hood closed.
- Turn the burner control knobs to OFF position.
- Push in the burner control knob and verify that the hot surface igniter glows. The hot surface igniters are located inside the flashtubes.
- After the glowing is verified, hold the knob pushed-in for 5 seconds then turn the knob counter clockwise to the biggest flame marking on the bezel. Continue to hold the knob pushed-in for 5 seconds until you see or hear a flame. Then release the knob.
- Caution: if ignition does not take place within 5 seconds, turn knob to the off position, wait for 5 minutes and repeat step 4. (Do not use a lighter or matches to light the grill.)
- Allow the grill to pre-heat on HI level (the biggest flame) for 5 minutes with the hood closed.
A laminated copy of these instructions is located in the prep-station drawer near the BBQ. Should you have any questions regarding any of these rules or reminders, please contact the Front Desk.
