Staff Departure—Kamaya Marlow
It comes with mixed emotions that I inform you that front desk staff member, Kamaya Marlow, will be leaving Sapphire to pursue new career opportunities! Kamaya has been a pleasure to work with and a great part of the Sapphire team for quite some time and will be missed! Kamaya’s last day will be Saturday, February 16th! Please stop by the front desk to wish him the best on all his future endeavors!
A Message from the Neighborhood Committee
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has released their preliminary health analysis for ocean going vessels at berth. This document also includes the cruise ships docked at the Embarcadero. CARB wishes to enforce stricter emission controls on these ships sooner than originally planned and have requested that residents in the surrounding areas place public comments no later than Friday, February 15, 2019 by visiting https://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/shorepower/shorepower.htm?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery. The report shows a significant reduction to our health risks if stricter emission controls for diesel exhaust fumes are implemented. Note that the San Diego numbers are extrapolated due to the downtown area not having a monitoring station! However, less emissions from toxic diesel exhaust fumes are still in our best interest. If you wish to comment, please see the attached instructions and suggested draft message to leave a public comment.
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: accessing the garage, the fitness center, club room, BBQ area, and the pool and spa deck. Please contact management with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you!
Fire System Reminders
As a courtesy, Management would like to remind all residents who wish to paint the interior of their units that under no circumstances should you or your contractors paint any part of the fire sprinkler system, which includes the sprinkler head itself. Painting or alterations of any sort to the fire sprinkler system can prevent the system from activating in the event of an emergency. Your neighbors and the Association thank you for your cooperation with this matter!
Garage Reminder—Car Idling
In the event that you need to idle your vehicle, Management requests that you remove your vehicle from the garage into an open air space. Removing your vehicle to an open air space helps prevent excessive toxic fumes from accumulating and lingering in the parking garage.
As a courtesy to your neighbors and the housekeeping staff, it is important to remember to break down all large recyclable materials and it’s preferred that all large items be thrown away in the trash room located on P-1. Also, when disposing of any recycling, please be sure to clean out food debris left inside. Lastly, please make sure that you bag all glass prior to disposal, as glass can be a safety hazard for others. These steps are simple and are crucial in helping the staff, as well as preventing problems with the trash chute. Please see Management for a copy of the recycle chart which indicate items that can and cannot be recycled. If you have any questions, please contact the Management Office during business hours. Thank you!
