Open Forum


  • We’re working on addressing the biggest issues first, everything else is prioritized in our backlog
    • Feel free to ask about or challenge prioritization,
    • ex: as Ivon did with the egregious leaking on his car, b/c we didn’t understand how much it was leaking
  • Remember that YOU can run with any idea and present additional information which could help accelerate that item –
    • ex: Zara researched what plants were needed for a Butterfly Garden
    • ex: Shae sent me the link to the appropriate camera doorbell (Ring branded unit)
  • Think about “What’s your goal?”, “Is this something that can be fixed?”, “Is this specific to my unit or the community”


  • TOPIC: Security Issues (stealing packages and attempting entrance into vehicles): 
    • Gavin Power (moving in shortly): 
      • LBPD mentioned an increase in crime, possibly due to Covid. 
      • Additional measures: 
        • Suggested parking lot attendant or door guard 
        • Contracted offsite monitoring solution – real-time feed? 
    • Chris Pluck: 
      • What about closing the gap?  Any reason we can upgrade the door itself in that way? 
        • Check with City 
      • Fortunate that nobody has been confronted 
      • Keeping them out in the first place is #1 priority 
    • Mark Venger: 
      • External monitoring companies – how to determine adverse behavior with individuals? 
        • Gavin response: delicate to determine, what about situations where it’s more serious – breaking into vehicles, or damaging property – that would be a monitorable situation. 
      • Access control system – What about a “buzz-in, buzz-out” system?  You can’t run around the building completely. 
    • Maria Larsen: 
      • Worked in security industry, certain camera analytics – loitering, possibly use speakers.  Difficult in residential vs. a more typical security setting. 
  • TOPIC: Landscaping: 
    • Marian: 
      • White fly issue, planter outside of 219 – ask landscaping company 
      • Offers to put information together on this issue.  Potentially treat the soil to treat/fight it internally. 
  • TOPIC: Boiler leaks: 
    • Mark: 
      • Condensation drip was the #13 
      • Looking at the wall to help with the install 
      • Delgado to deal with the trip from the condensate line using our plumber Tony 
  • TOPIC: Air Handlers 
    • Mark: 
      • Potentially unit turned back on? 
        • A unit above Mark’s was turned back on, just got a new flywheel, Delgado will deal with the speed 
      • City Requirement: 50dBA, 0.001g 0-30Hz, 0.003g 30-130Hz 
      • Building Requirement: What is the actual need of that particular stack?  What is the minimum? 
        • Architect?  Building engineer? 
    • Maria: looking into it as well 
    • Pluck: Met with Daniel, isolated issue units 
  • TOPIC: Extension of the Regency Palms (next few years) 
    • Pluck: Potentially affect the whole building, additional car parking, etc.  Sent us an overview of the project.  Possibly the parking lot or building. 
      • Potentially add to the agenda and further discussion 
      • Possibly make a defense about it, possibly talk with the architect/developer/regency palms group/city/etc. 
      • Regarding light/sound/heat/etc 
      • Rescheduled the hearing, new date coming up on that project – presentation and a number of groups
