‘7th & Market’ Developer Presentation on 11/14

In a recent newspaper article in the San Diego Union-Tribune, it was mentioned that litigation against the planned 39-story, 5-star, Ritz Carlton Hotel project on 7th & Market had been dropped & the project could now proceed.

Therefore, Phil Ochoa, Alta HOA president, contacted Mr. Jason Wood, from Cisterra Development, the Ritz Carlton Hotel developer, with a request for a presentation for Alta owners on this project immediately across the street from Alta.

Mr. Jason Wood accepted the invitation. The presentation will be held at the Alta amenity room during the owners Annual Meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesdy, November 14, 2018. The presentation is for Alta owners only. There will be a question and answer period following the presentation.

Due to his building construction expertise, going forward, Ted Foster, Alta HOA Vice President, will be the liaison official between Alta & Cisterra Development in case of issues arising during construction that may impact Alta owners & residents.

Zone Water Shut Off Notice

Please be advised that beginning on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 – Thursday, July 26th, the hot and cold water will be shut off to each zone of the building. Countywide Mechanical will be onsite to complete the discounted plumbing services which residents signed up for previously. Below is the planned shut off over the dates listed above.

Tuesday, July 24th 8:00am-3:00pm (Floors 2-10)

Wednesday, July 25th 8:00am-3:00pm (Floors 11-17)

Thursday, July 26th 8:00am-3:00pm (Floors 18-21)

 During these time frames the hot and cold water to your zone will be off for plumbing repairs. Once the work is completed, the water will be restored and an email will go out to confirm the water is back on.

Pool Rules and Reminders

Now that the weather is getting nicer and we are seeing more residents come down and use the pool/spa, we wanted to remind you of some of the important pool rules to keep in mind as you head down there this summer. Thank you for your attention to the following procedures.

Pool and spa hours are as follows but may be changed by the Board from time to time:

5:00 a.m. to Midnight — Monday through Sunday

  • NO LIFEGUARD IS ON DUTY! Lifeguard or supervisory service is not provided.  Even if a monitor is present, anyone using the pool, spa or sauna shall do so at his or her own risk.  Neither the Association nor any personnel of the Association is liable for injury or harm caused to any person using the pool, spa or sauna.
  • All persons with active diarrhea (whether infants, toddlers, children or adults) should not use public swimming pools or spas under any circumstances.
  • Children under the age of 14 years are not allowed in the pool or spa area unless accompanied by an adult 18 years of age or older.
  • Pets of any kind are prohibited in the pool or spa areas.
  • Surfboards, boogie boards, beach balls and floating or inflatable devices are prohibited in the pool or spa.
  • For safety reasons, no glass or sharp objects are allowed in the pool or spa. If glass or sharp objects are brought to the pool area and it causes an accident, the responsible Owner will be liable for the cost of any resulting damage or injury.
  • Diving is prohibited in any areas of the pool or spa. Running, pushing or boisterous activity in or around the pool or spa areas is also prohibited.
  • All personal music devices (such as radios, IPODs, MP3 players, etc.) must be battery operated and headsets must be worn when such devices are in use. Volumes of such devices must be kept at a level that limits the sound to your personal area only so as not to disturb others.
  • Due to limited available space, no Owner or resident may host more than four (4) guests within the pool and spa area at one time. Any resident or Owner that has reserved the Community Room may not allow its guests to overflow into the pool and spa area in a manner that exceeds this four (4) guest maximum.

Discounted Rate Plumbing Services Program

Management finalized a plumbing service/replacement program with Countywide Mechanical where residents can replace plumbing components and complete preventative maintenance in your unit and all at a discounted rate. This program is meant to make it easy for you to get plumbing work done in your unit, reduce the chance of floods, limit water shut offs and save a little money… Below is a list of services and associated cost for this program, however the prices will go down even further the more people that sign up for each service. We will be completing this program July 24-26th and will be shutting down one zone per day. So when signing up, please make sure you are available on your zone’s service date. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your manager to discuss the program, sign ups or any other questions you may have.

Lower Zone shut off (floors 2-10) – Tuesday, July 24th 8am – 4pm

Middle Zone shut off (floors 11-17) – Wednesday, July 25th 8am-4pm

Upper Zone shut off (floors 18-21) – Thursday, July 26th 8am-4pm

 Sign Up Deadline: Friday, July 13th

A La Cart Services and Cost:

  1. Replace 8 – 1/4 turn angle stops, 1 – dual 1/4 turn, 8 – supply lines, 1- toilet supply line = $659.09
  2. Replace washing machine (hot/cold) valve box = $323.15
  3. Run cable/snake down master and guest bath sinks and tub = $220.00
  4. Rebuild the inside of the toilet (flapper, fill valve etc.) = $169.18
  5. Change out master and guest shower cartridge (can cause reduced temperatures if not changed out every 3-4 years) = $505.25

Total cost to complete all services = $1,724.29 ($152.58 off the individual a la cart prices)

Items Being Left In Front of Unit Door

Recently it has been noticed on building inspections that residents have been leaving items out in front of their unit doors for an extended period of time. Items like trash bags, shoes, deliveries need to be taken out or brought in immediately, as storage in front of the door is not allowed. Items such as bottle water, Blue Apron and Amazon Fresh items  can only be left out only for the delivery/pick up day, these items cannot be left out for multiple days until the driver can return for pick up. If these items are noticed being left out on a regular basis, you will be contacted by Management and will be issued a violation letter. We appreciate your attention to this request as we want to present a clean and well kept area for your surrounding neighbors. Please reach out to your manager if you have any follow up questions or concerns regarding this information.
