Manager’s Messages

Board meetings take place every 4th Monday of the month in the Amenities Room with Executive Session at 5:00 pm (closed to members) and Executive Session at 6:00 pm (open to homeowners). Should the day and/or time of the meetings change notices will be posted in the mailroom and elevator lobby bulletin boards.

PATROL ON-CALL SERVICE

Dear Aria Residents,

Over the last couple of months, the Board and the Safety Committee have been working on finding solutions regarding the safety of the residents and their belongings in the building.

On August 28th, the Board approved a recommendation from the Safety Committee to provide a 24/7 on-call service, which would allow residents to call Securitas when noticing suspicious activity in the parking garage or in the building. When the call is received, Securitas would send out an officer to inspect the building and remove the transient from the property. We encourage residents to only use this when there isn’t a patrol officer already present in the building. We have an officer onsite everyday between 10pm and 6am.

The phone number for the 24/7 on-call patrol service is (619) 847-0465. This is not an alternative for emergency services. If you have an emergency, please call 9-1-1.

Multiple Water Shut Offs

Dear Aria Residents,

During last week’s water shut off, we were able to replace the circuit setters for the top zone of the building (floors 17-24). The vendor will still need to make adjustments to the new circuit setters, but it won’t require another water shut off. Below is the schedule for the remaining floors that will require a water shut off to complete the circuit setter project:

Floors 8-16

The next water shut off will be on September 8th from 9:00am to 3:00pm, which is also the water shut off for residents to complete any plumbing repairs within their unit.

Floors 1-7

The bottom stack will have the most water shut offs due to the number of units on each floor. There will be a water shut off to complete the circuit setters project on September 22nd, October 13th, and October 27th. All three water shut offs will start at 9:00am and end at 3:00pm.

Meet The Candidates Forum

Dear Aria Residents,

On Thursday, August 26th at 6:00pm, the association will be hosting a meet the candidates forum via Zoom. The meet the candidates forum is an opportunity for candidates to share how their contributions will benefit the Aria community. This is not a debate forum but an opportunity to assist owners in choosing who they believe are the best candidates for the Aria Board of Directors.

The forum will begin with the candidates introducing themselves and providing a short summary of their qualifications to the audience. Prior to the meeting, homeowners can submit questions for the candidates to Management. Management will ask as many questions received as possible in the order they are received. The duration of the meeting will be 90 minutes. After the Q&A has concluded, all candidates will provide a closing statement before adjourning the meeting.

As of today, all owners should have received their ballots in the mail.

An email blast will be sent out to the membership with the Zoom information, the question form, and additional information regarding the forum. If you have any questions, please contact Management during business hours.

Annual Meeting Update

Dear Aria Residents,

As you may know, the notice of annual meeting was sent out to the membership via email on July 16th and it is currently posted in the mailroom bulletin board.

There are four seats up for election on the Board. There are three seats for a two-year term and one seat for a one-year term. The ballots will be mailed out to the membership this week. The ballot mailing from the inspectors of election (Ace Inspectors) will include the candidate statements from each running member, the 2020 annual meeting minutes, one ballot per household, voting instructions, and an FAQ.

In order to meet quorum requirements, the association needs 25% of the voting power of members (35 ballots). Every household will receive one ballot and four votes. Our governing documents provide for cumulative voting, therefore you can cast all of your votes for one person, or you may distribute them among the candidates listed on the ballot.

The deadline for the inspectors of election to receive your ballot in the mail is Friday, September 24, 2021. If you do not mail your ballot out on time, owners can drop off their ballot at the Management office or you can hand deliver it to the inspectors of election at the annual meeting prior to the ballots being opened. The annual meeting will be called to order on Monday, September 27th at 6:00pm and the ballots will be opened at 6:05pm.

If you are unable to vote and mail your ballot in time for the inspectors of election to receive your ballot, an owner may assign another owner as a proxy. Per Civil Code §5130, a proxy means a written authorization signed by a member or the authorized representative of the member that gives another member or members the power to vote on behalf of that member.

The association will host a Meet the Candidates open forum during the week of August 23rd. This will provide an opportunity for residents to gather additional information by asking questions of the candidates running for the Board of Directors. This is not considered an open forum for other topics or open discussion. Management will send out an email blast once a date and time for the Meet the Candidates open forum has been confirmed.

Annual Audio/Visual Fire Alarm Inspection

Dear Aria Residents,

It is that time of the year again! The association has contracted with Cosco Fire Protection to complete the annual audio/visual fire alarm inspection for the common areas and the inside of every unit in the building. Per fire code, this inspection is required every year in order for the association to stay in compliance.

The in-unit inspections will be completed on Tuesday, August 31st and Wednesday, September 1st between 8:30am and 3:00pm. The fire sprinklers in the storage rooms will also be inspected between the timeframe mentioned above. The technician that enter your unit will be wearing personal protective equipment. Please know that the alarms will be set off during the inspection of your floor.

Please email Management by August 20th to confirm if someone will be home to allow entry, management can use the key you have placed on file for entry, or if you will be leaving a key for use with Management.

If your unit is not made accessible for entry, the association will have a locksmith present to gain entry into your unit to complete the testing. Any unit that requires entry via a locksmith will be charged back for the costs.
