Posted By gconnelly on November 9, 2018
Construction Notice—Crane Removal
BOSA began the removal of the construction crane on Monday, November 5th, and is expected to complete the removal by Monday, November 12th, at 7pm. During this time, Kettner Blvd. will be closed from Ash St. to “A” St.. Please see Management for a copy of the traffic plan provided by BOSA Development for further details. This work is expected to be noisy and will affect traffic flow on Kettner. Please plan accordingly and contact the Management Office with any questions or concerns you may have.
Package Pickup & Disposal
As a courtesy to the front desk staff, we kindly ask that all residents please attempt to retrieve packages as they arrive. With the approaching holidays, the package room becomes extremely full, making it difficult to maneuver around to retrieve other items. Also, please be reminded to break down all boxes and dispose of them in the main refuse room located on P-1. Do not leave boxes in the trash rooms located on the residential floors or place them down the trash chute! Management and the staff appreciate your cooperation!
No Smoking—Common Area Reminders
Please be reminded that there is no smoking of any kind, including electric smoking devices, in any part of the Association’s Common Areas. These areas include but are not limited to: the residential hallways, the second floor, elevators, lobbies and the parking garage. Also, please be mindful of your neighbors as throwing cigarette butts and debris off the balconies may cause damage to your neighbors’ items, may injure a resident and are a nuisance! Lastly, in the event that you or your guest are smoking in your unit, please ensure that the smell does not emit to the residential hallways. Please contact Management with any questions or concerns you may have.
As a reminder, Sapphire is an enclosed property with established rules to ensure the property is secure and pleasant for all residents. Please remember that Sapphire does not have guest parking and that contractors are not permitted to park in the garage. Also, even though parking spaces may appear to be vacant, each parking space is assigned to a unit and may not be occupied by anyone, other than the resident, without their consent. Please keep in mind that utilizing a parking space that does not belong to you is a violation of the Association’s rules and your vehicle may be towed by the owner. While some of these rules may be an inconvenience, they help protect you, the property, our residents and staff. Thank you for your cooperation!
On Monday, November 19th, from 8:00am to 3:00pm, the Association’s janitorial company, P.M.S., is scheduled to vacuum the entire parking garage. The janitorial staff will start on parking level one and will work down to parking level 5. During this time, the Association would like to request that all vehicles be removed from the garage, as this work will create dust that may settle on vehicles in the area. If your vehicle is not removed, your parking space will not be vacuumed and the Association will not be responsible for dirt that may settle on your vehicle. Please see the anticipated schedule for the vacuuming of each parking level referenced below:
|Garage Vacuuming—Monday, November 19|
|Parking level 1||8:00am—9:00am|
|Parking level 2||9:00am—10:00am|
|Parking level 3||10:00am—11:00am|
|Parking level 4||11:30am—12:30pm|
|Parking level 5||12:30pm—1:30pm|
Please note that the time frames referenced above are estimated and are subject to change. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your cooperation with this matter. Please contact Management with any questions or concerns you may have at (619) 237-8079.
