Pet of the Month
Leo Loves the Outdoors
Meet Leonard, Leo for short. He is a five year old Poodle/Pomeranian/Jack Russell mix. The owner found him on Craig's List. He came from a litter of five and he instantly charmed his new owner. Maybe not your typical outdoor dog type, but Leo has embraced his owners interests in off roading, camping and loves the outdoors particularly when taken to Dog Beach. He does not mind the water and is always ready to jump in.
Loves People
Leo loves people, but is not quite sure about other dogs as early in his life, he had two bad experience. But when it come to food, he is all in for carrots and an occasional pepperoni slice.
Bright Out There
When his owner takes him camping or off roading, Leo is prepared with his own sunglasses. He loves to ride in the Jeep. At the Beach, he sports his own floating jacket.  ■

November 2022 Safety Meeting Summary
Additional Building Numbers
Fire Gate Drop Gates

Handicap Access
by Rick Manning
A Safety Committee Meeting was held on Thursday November 17, 2022. The meeting was called to order at 7:10 pm. In attendance were Rick Manning (Chair), Keith Levin, and Cynthia Lee.
Steppingstones for Walking
The Safety Committee has turned the steppingstones to the gardeners for their use around the property to access areas around planters etc. Status, unknown. A landscaping committee issue.
Signage
There are only a few pool safety signs that need replacing but there is other signage around the property that need to be replaced due to fading or in need of repair. We are putting together a spreadsheet listing several venders and comparing costs which will be presented to the board for discussion and approval.
Fire Gate Drop Gates
The issue behind drop gates for these points of entry are to prevent teens or vagrants from crawling under where the gate crosses over the water drainage way. It was discussed about having an additional metal “lift style” drop gate to fill the area that can be locked down and unlocked by the FD in emergencies. One contractor submitted a bid, but the board asked Brad if he could contact 2 additional metal gate fabrication specialists to find one that will meet a budget approval.
Security Cameras
Cory from Golden Eye Surveillance Systems has been working on a failure of one part, the receiver on the clubhouse. Cory will fix when the part is in. Only 2 cameras are active now. He wants to have the system fully functional prior to Thanksgiving.
Security Locking Gates for Pools
A-Abbot Locksmith Pool and Keys (Supplement) $10,248.42

This item is still ON HOLD however, we are collecting information on both a credit card style reader and a key fob system. When we have sufficient information on these, we will submit the information to the board and see if they wish to proceed in obtaining bids.
Additional Building Address Numbers
Several months ago, additional building address number for the buildings were purchased. Property Manager Brad Crocker says his handyman can do the work; we just need to tell him the location where we want the signs put up. A couple of us will walk the property with building fronts and mark what building it is and where we want the new signs. This was originally an Architectural Committee project.
Unit and Building numbers and Sign
Some signs would be created to resemble street names. An example of this is Blackbeard 101, 201, 103, 203 and would hang on the light post. Where the elevators or stairs to the three-story they would be plaque style and be on the adjacent wall to the stairs or elevator. (this should actually be a Landscaping item).
Sidewalk Sanding/Replacement
This is a tripping liability issue for the HOA. A contractor that was supplied by Progressive and I did a walk through which was a separate report and marked locations that need to be sanded down or replaced due to root up lifting and concrete breaking or cracking. A bid will be submitted from this contractor, but I think that we should get one more estimate. This issue should be done ASAP even if we do not get a second bid and go with the one that will be submitted.
Handicap Access
This is an ongoing discussion in our committee. At some point the HOA may have to become Handy-capable compliant. This would require Curb ramps and curb cut outs. Ramps for bridges, etc. There was something said about our property being “Grandfathered” and these changes were not needed. However, there is only one loading zone ramp on Blackbeard, one curb ramps (poured concrete to form a ramp) on Cabana near the trash can bin behind the clubhouse. There are several elderlies that use walkers to get around. We need to provide better means for them to get from sidewalk to parking lot and vice versa. We need to coordinate with public safety for HB and see if they can help make recommendations for improvements. This is a Safety AND Architectural crossover issue.
Update to Committee Charter
A few discrepancies noted in the Safety Committee Charter compared to the committee charter summary, specifically number of Committee Members. They do not match.

Goals and Objectives need updating, add “Identify Disabled/medical dependent, HOSPIC, or Homeowner that needs extra assistance in case of an emergency evacuation.

Ask for one HO per building to act as POC for and as a source for emergence information (per charter goals and objectives). Will do a flyer to ask for these persons.

Prepare a community safety plan. Cannot find one so will address and prepare a plan for approval (per charter goals and objectives).
Update Committee Page in Newsletter
No new Safety Newsletter has been published since 2019. It was decided that only two issues should be done, one in the summer and one in the winter. Hopefully we can have something to email out to the emails the HOA has and mail to those that have just addresses.
New Business
Possibility of obtaining a Private Security Company
  1. lock and unlock bathrooms
  2. patrol the property and issue parking violation tickets. ■
Editor Notes:
  • The cameras became fully function around November 29th and are recording the property at this time.
  • Live and recorded videos can be view on a phone or a PC by the Board or their designate.

FYI
WASP NEST NOTICE!!!
If you have noticed or spotted wasp nests around your building, please identify where (building eve, second floor corridor, common area stairs and landing, mailboxes clubhouse, etc.) building number and which side of building (east, west, north, or south) and a minimum of two pictures, I) showing the location and surrounding area, 2) a close un of the nest. Send an EMAIL the Safety Committee AND the Progressivet Association Management to have the pest conrol company come out and remove the nest.
Spray
If there is a nest on your own patio or balcony, you can use any wasp spray like Raid to clear that nest. When the wasps are dead knock the nest down and put int the trash. ■

FYI
New Pest Control Service
The HOA has contracted Cura Termite and Pest Control service to replace our previous vendor. They started October 3 and initially placed 39 traps around the property. It should be emphasized that their name is not Pest Elimination, but Pest Control. You can never eliminate all the pests. There has been an increase with rodents at the property. At a partial walk through on the Grunion Side on October 19, its was identified the need for two more traps around the 16551 Grunion Building (east and west sides). This was authorized and install that same day bringing the total number of traps to 41.
Need to be Patient
When a new traps are installed, rodents do not go near them for a period of time because they are new. Residents and members should not expect immediate results. Cura is monitoring these traps for 60 to 90 days to see if they reduce the rodents and will evaluate them if they need to be redeployed somewhere else.
Do Not Move Them!
Of importance: Someone move a trap on the Grunion side from fire gate area to the middle of same Grunion roadway. Do even think of doing this! These traps are to be install 50 feet apart or they will be effective.■

New Security Cameras Installed
by Rick Manning
After many months of questions and concerns about security in and around Harbour Vista community, a security camera surveillance system is finally installed. It is an expandable system that can add more security cameras as needed and as funds and budget can accommodate their installation.
Golden Eye Security
Golden Eye Security Systems INC. is a local company providing industry leading CCTV solutions and services
has installed 13 surveillances at all the strategic areas around the property The current camera locations are both pools, both mailboxes, and all three entrance/exit gates.
24/7 Recording
The system will provide 24/7 around the clock surveillance recording to a two-terabyte hard drive. The
system can be backed up to other hard drive storage devices on the 29th day because the system will automatically start rewriting the surveillance footage on day thirty (30).
4K Resolution
The system rides on its own network and has High Definition (HD) transmitter/repeater/receiver at 4k so it
will not interfere with any other network. You may have noticed the small dish shaped transmitters on the gate kiosks or mailbox kiosks.
Monitoring System
The receiver is on the peak of the clubhouse and the monitoring equipment is installed in a storage cabinet behind the Cabana clubhouse utility room. The software to monitor the system will be installed on a phone, tablet, notebook, laptop, or desktop computer of one member of the current safety committee and or HOA board members who will be monitoring the system. The software can access multiple cameras at once or individual cameras as needed. The footage can be reviewed while real-time (live) recording is taking place.
Procuring the System
There were a few problems that had to be overcome during the process of acquiring the system and its installation.
  1. The board asked to have a bid for the entire property having cameras that included all the parking area, gates, pools, and mailboxes, that at the time proved to be too expensive so we got a bid for just the primary entry/exit gates as well as the pools because of vagrants and the mailboxes because of break-ins.
  2. Board approval of a bid. A second month went by until the next board meeting which finally approved that bid.
  3. Coordinating with Golden Eye and when they can access the property to get the installation started.
  4. Upon wiring for the mailboxes, it was determined that the lighting, which was where the security company wanted to tie into was on a circuit that was on a timer only and no direct “hot” line for the system. Finally, over on the Largo entry gate they could not find a “Hot” lead there either. The HOA contacted Progressive Community Manager Brad Cocker to obtain an electrician to solve these three electrical problems before those cameras could be connected to the monitoring system.
Thirteen Cameras
In summary there will be 13 cameras monitoring the main entrance/exit points, mailboxes and pools that will provide some well needed security for Harbour Vista and our residents in the next few weeks. ■

Lukewarm Water
Not Giving Up (Part 2)
On December 21, 2022, a technician from Southern California Gas Company arrived to replace the gas meter and update the gas line for the 16521 Grunion Boiler. Board and architectural committee members present had thought they would start the work at once, however he was there to survey as to what preparations were required, and left before noon. That same day plumbing company Elite Leak Detection was scheduled to come in at 1:30 to perform thermal imaging on several units in the 4831 and 4791 Lago buildings and the 16521 Grunion and 16551 N. Grunion buildings for lukewarm water issues. The actual inspection did not start till 3 pm, and therefore only an abbreviated evaluation was performed on the Lago Buildings. Inspections on the Grunion buildings were deferred. The Elite Leak plumber was able to verify some crossover issues that we had previously identified, and also concluded that there is a boiler demand that is not being met. This is the same conclusion that the Southern California Gas company had arrived at, which is why they recommended the gas meter upgrade.
Grunion Boiler Impact
Emergency notices had been posted on thirty Grunion unit doors stating there would be an emergency hot water interruption while Southern California Gas updated the gas line to the 16521 Boiler. HOA members working on this effort thought the upgrade would happen on December 21, however it was not to be. Even though the Gas Company was on site at 8 pm on that day, the technician left soon after and later reported they had trouble locating the underground gas line. The next day a crew came in who after much digging, found the gas line and installed a new, larger gas line. As of this writing, this line and its associated meter has not connect to the boiler.
Plumber Specialist
The thermo-imaging plumbing service was originally schedule to meet with the Architectural Committee on December 14th. But because of a emergency leak, this was rescheduled to December 21 at 1:30pm with Architectural Chair Michael Barto and HOA Treasurer Chat Tran. Unfortunately, Elite Leak Detection plumbers did not arrive until 3 pm. After a briefing, it was decided that there was only enough time to evaluate the 4791 and 4831 Lago buildings with Grunion inspection to be rescheduled. Using an infrared camera system, Elite Leak Detection inspected two stacks consisting of four individual units which had been previously identified with crossover (See December Crossover Investigation). They also inspected the outside cold water shutoff valves where they found two that need to be serviced.
Hot Water Returned
Lukewarm water issues has been persistent for since early December for the two Lago buildings. But just prior to the meeting, hot water returned to one of the two unit stacks. This occurred in the morning after ProStar, our boiler company, cleaned the boiler screen. Since the issue had disappeared for this two unit stack, nothing could be investigated for this stack. For the other two unit stack cold water crossover was still present. But only for certain fixtures. The plumbers said that the only way to resolve this issue would be to trace the lines in the two units which might require removing the drywall. This will be for a future follow on.
Gas Detected
During one of the boiler cycles, the plumbers observed a gas smell. After investigating for leaks with a sniffer, they identified a small amount of gas was released during a cycle from the Boiler. They concluded, that was caused by insufficient flow related to the restricted gas lines and there was no danger involved. This will be addressed by the SoCalGas gas line upgrades currently being scheduled.
Plumbers Conclusions and Plan
There were many suggestions, the most immediate one being to increase the gas lines to these boiler. After that, the identified crossover issues will be addressed along with some maintenance to some water shutoff valves. The Board approved the 16521 Boiler gas line and meter update a couple of months ago and this upgrade in the process. Once that is completed, other boiler gas line upgrades are up for Board approval. ■

Lukewarm Water
December Crossover Invesigation (part 1)
On Monday December 5, 2022, members of the Architectural Committee Michael Barto and Dave Schubert, and Board member Mike Borzi performed a plumbing crossover evaluation on three and a half buildings. This entailed turning the water off for 70 units. We concluded that twelve units had crossover issues. Seven on the Grunion side and five in the two Lago Buildings. This effort did not fix anything, but was solely performed to isolate the problem. In the coming weeks we will bring in a specialized plumber to track down and repair the issues discovered. 
More Units Added
Originally the team was only to evaluate 16521 Grunion and the north half of 16551 Grunion, which utilize the same boiler. But just before Monday, residents from the 4791 Lago building started reporting similar lukewarm water issues. It was decided at the last minute to also include that building in the evaluation plus the 4831 Lago building as it uses the same boiler. This may have been a mistake as manpower resources were really strained during this evaluation. There was just too much work. If it was not for the last minute volunteering of resident Dave Schubert, the team would have been sunk. 
Boilers Showed Crossover
Hot water was turned off to the buildings and the hot return line spigot was turned on to drain the hot water from the buildings. Cold water remained on. Residents were asked to turn on all their hot water faucets to speed up the draining of the pipes in the building. If everything worked right, the hot water drain would stop to a trickle at the boiler drain spigot. But this did not happen as the return spigot continued to flow. This indicated that crossover was occurring where the cold water line was mixing with the hot water line. Both boilers demonstrated this same result.
Stack Cold Water Shutoffs
Cold water to each buildings can be turned off by stack. A stack consist of two or three units vertically. The cold water turnoffs for the three bedroom stacks are located near the gas meters enclosures, whereas the cold water shutoff for the one and two bedroom units are located inside the bottom floor unit patio for that stack. 
3bd shutoff
1-2 bd shutoff
Isolating the Crossover
The evaluation team proceeded to turn off the cold water in each stack to see if the boiler return spigot drain would stop. If so, then that stack was identified as having a crossover. This would narrow down the results to only two or three units in a stack instead of a whole building. With three and half building involved, the team had to turn on and turn off a potential of 28 valves and check back with two boilers.
Nobody Home
The team was able to complete the evaluation for the two Lago buildings. The 16521 Grunion two bedroom stacks were not evaluated because no one was home to allow us access to their patio. This may have been an oversight in planning and communications will be improved next time.
Next Step
Identifying the stacks with this method does not necessarily mean there is a bad valve in a member's unit. There may be other issues with fixtures such as incorrectly installed, a bad washing machine valve or even the hydronic heater. But somehow cold water is getting into the hot water lines. The HOA has contracted a specialized plumbing service to traces the lines to where this crossover is occurring. When this happens, members will again be asked to have their water turned off and the plumbers will need access to the suspected units. ■

Editor Notes:
  1. A three bedroom unit stack did not show up as a crossover issue from the boiler spigot drain when their cold water was turn off. But inside their units with the cold turned off, cold water still continued to flow in their units from thier fixtures. It is theorized that the plumbing in this stack has two cold water sources.
  2. Members who experience lukewarm water or lack of pressure, should make sure the cartridge in their mixing type fixtures are clean and in proper working order. 
  3. Member might consider doing their own cross over research. They can turn off their sinks with the valves located under their cabinets of their fixtures and also turn off the washing machine hoses and to see if they now get hot water to their shower. This would identify these fixtures as the problem.
  4. The evaluation on this Monday was for crossover only. Southern California Gas identified that the gas lines to the boilers are undersized and recommended an upgrade to an MSA 85 m/r meter. The first installation will be scheduled for the 16521 Grunion Boiler (16521 and north side 16551 Grunion Buildings).

The Community
Car Wash Areas
Members of the Harbour Vista Community recently volunteered their time and at their own expense to update the Car Wash areas. I thought I would start a new column and call it “The Community”. This new column is to give these community members recognition for what they contribute to our community.
Grunion
Rachel Ricottone contributed a new hose to the Grunion Car wash area, Ed Fernandez purchased some pebble stones to create a drain area and eliminate the mud nuisance that has existed at this location for years.
Cabana
Community member Mark Lassler took it upon himself to purchase a new nozzle, and hose hanger which he secured to the pole at the Cabana car wash area. His concern was the hose was developing kinks reducing its life expectancy. The new hose hanger also improved the look of the area. ■

Editor Notes: Community members should consider contacting the Board when undertaking a project.

Rules and Regulations

Make sure you have the latest copy of the HOA Rules and Regulations. You may obtain them from Association Management. They are also posted at Harbour Vista News at:


Remodeling


The first thing that many new homeowners do is replace appliances, flooring and cabinets and even plumbing. Each Harbour Vista Condo shares common walls, floors and ceilings. Remodeling project may impact your neighbors or the outside of the building (screens, windows, doors) which pierces the firewalls. Simple installing new flooring or recess lights impacts sound proofing and firewall bariers with your neighbors. The inside of your unit’s walls may have plumbing and electrical that service other units. You should contact the property manager to obtain a copy of the latest Architectural Guidelines which is also posted at Harbour Vista News at:


Architectural Request

You may be required to submit an Architectural Request prior to starting a remodeling project. You can also contact the HOA Architectural Committee to simply ask questions. Installing an air conditioning/heating system will require a building permit and approval of an HOA Architecture Request. The large attic space in the three bedroom is not constructed as a living space when the units were build. Only storage of light weight items is permitted.

Construction Noise


Construction noise for remodeling is only allowed between 7am to 5pm on the weekdays. If your remodeling project is going to make excessive noise, it is a good idea to inform your neighbors prior to the start of the work.

Trash Bins

Normal trash bin pickup is scheduled every week for Tuesday and Friday. Do not over stuff the trash bin particularly when moving in. Disposal of large items which including furniture that do not fit in the trash bin is allowed but only the day before the HOA scheduled large item pick up. Large item pick dates are posted at the mail boxes bulletin boards.

Common Water System

Your condo shares a common water supply with all units with both hot and cold water paid for by the your HOA dues. Your condo does not have master water shutoff supply valves. Your sinks do have individual shutoff valves, but the shower/tubs do not unless they have been upgraded (a good suggestion). You should contact Progressive to schedule them to perform any full water turn off to your unit that may affect your neighbors.

Hydronic Heaters
