Staff Appreciation—Holiday Cheer
While the Association provides eligible staff members with a holiday bonus, most residents request staff information so they can give back to those who make Sapphire such a great place to live! While many residents prefer to hand deliver gifts or cards to specific staff members, please feel free to contact Management to discuss alternative options, if needed. Please see the staff roster below and happy holidays!!!

Hector Zermeno—Front Desk

Sapphire Annual Toy Drive— ‘Tis the season for giving! – LAST WEEK!
All Sapphire residents are encouraged to join USO San Diego in helping the children of our active duty military families! Simply purchase a new, unwrapped toy or gift card for children from toddler up to age 18 and drop off your gift in the USO gift donation box located in the Sapphire lobby from November 27th – December 20th. Please see the flyer posted in the mailroom for further details.
Assessment Update Reminder
The New Year will be here shortly and Management would like to remind all owners to make the necessary changes to reflect the new assessment amounts for 2019. Please contact Management to obtain your new assessment for 2019 or reference the 2019 budget mailer. In the event that you have automatic payments through Action’s ACH program, your assessment amount will automatically update for 2019. If you have automatic payments through your bank (not through Action), you will need to contact your bank to manually adjust your debited payment amount. Keep in mind, that while assessments are allocated to homeowner accounts on the 1st of each month, payments are not considered late until the close of business on the 15th of each month. Please contact Management if you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter.
Common Area Carpet Cleaning
On Monday, December 17th, from 8:00am to 4:00pm, the Association’s janitorial company, P.M.S., will be onsite cleaning all residential hallway carpets and the Clubroom carpet. During this time, the Association would like to request that you please use caution while in the common areas as the janitorial crew may be working and the carpets may be slightly wet.
Below are a few helpful reminders in preparation for the upcoming holidays:
¨ Events or gatherings of twenty (20) persons or more require written notice to Management with a minimum 24-hour notice along with a guest list. Please be reminded that Sapphire residents are responsible for all guests, their actions and all noise levels being lowered after 10:00pm. This includes bringing guests in from the balcony.
¨ Please do not place large amounts of food or food such as potato peels, extremely fibrous material like corn husks, celery stalks, onion skins, and artichokes down the disposal. Also, no coffee grounds, grease, oil or fat can be allowed into your garbage disposal or drains.
¨ It is important to remember that all items thrown down the trash chute must be properly bagged. Loose items and trash should not be thrown down the trash chute. Also, 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 refuse room on parking level one (1).
¨ The acceptable timeframe for winter holiday decorations for Residential Condominiums is from the day after Thanksgiving until January 2nd. All other decorations must be displayed no more than seven (7) calendar days prior to the day of the holiday, and must be removed within five (5) calendar days after the holiday.
¨ Holiday decorations must be displayed only inside the Residential Unit. Decorations are prohibited within balconies, hallways, Common Area, Association Property or any other area outside of the Residential Unit. Residents may not hang holiday decorations on the outside of any door to their Condominiums. Only fire retardant coated natural trees and artificial trees are permitted within a Condominium.
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!
Christmas Tree Procedures
With the approaching holidays, please keep in mind that Christmas trees must be brought in Monday—Saturday between the hours of 8:00am to 5:30pm, as the trees can be very messy and may require clean up. Also, please make sure that trees are bagged or wrapped when bringing the trees into the property, as this will help eliminate excess debris and cleanup. Management has arranged for a trash container specifically for the disposal of Christmas trees. The container will be located in the P-1 Refuse Room from Tuesday, December 27th, 2016—Monday, January 9th, 2017. We thank you for your cooperation with this matter!
*BOARD MEETING NOTICE—The next Board meeting has been scheduled for Monday, January 28th, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. in the second floor Clubroom. All owners are encouraged to attend. We hope to see you there! Note that there will be no Board meeting in December.
*BUILDING SCHEDULE—Please see the building schedule posted ion the mailroom for information on events taking place throughout Sapphire. Please contact the Manager Assistant, Jazmin Seaton, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for all elevator, Clubroom and contractor scheduling requests.
