Dear Luma Residents,

Toyota Prius Catalytic Converter Thefts

There appears to be an organized group of men targeting specifically Toyota Prius catalytic converters. They are incredibly bold and skilled, taking around 2 minutes per car. Most recently, the group of 4 men has been seen riding in a silver Chrysler 300. The police have been notified and are working to try to disrupt this group. Please be alert and be on the lookout for any vehicles following you into the parking structure.

Dear Luma Residents,

Rubbish Room Usage

Our cleaning staff has noticed large materials and boxes at the bottom of the refuse. This is extremely inconvenient for them to dig out of the trash compactor. Please bring down all boxes to the recycling room. Large construction materials are not to be thrown down the trash chute. Please call the front desk if you need help disposing large or bulky items.  We are happy to assist in disposing these items properly.

Thank you for participating in South Park BID’s E-Waste Drop-Off

Last month, South Park BID hosted an e-waste drop-off in collaboration with LA Conservation Corps. They collected over 400 lbs of e-waste, including old cellphones, flatscreens, printers and DVD players, which were all safely recycled. For more information on LA Conservation Corps, click here.

Dear Luma Residents,

Christmas Tree Disposal

If you are looking to dispose of your Christmas tree, then stop by the front desk to pick up a disposal bag. After the tree is bagged up, you can leave it in the recycling area, and we will dispose of it for you! If you need assistance bringing down the tree, call or send an email to the front desk and we are happy to help you move it.

Carts in the Common Areas

To keep our community looking immaculate, please be cautious of the walls in the common area when utilizing any of the carts. This week, the walls were damaged by the carts which consequently means that they will need to be repaired. This costs the membership more money than the usual wear and tear and the person that damages the common area can be fined and/or charged for said damages.

Enhance Surveillance Research

Dear Luma Residents,

In response to the recent increase in criminal activities, the Board is actively researching enhancements to Luma surveillance system. The measures being considered are to increase visibility in the parking garages, have better quality video, and escalate access on the 1st floor elevator vestibule doors to inhibit intruders from entering the building through the garage. Specific surveillance system enhancements under consideration are:

  • Enhance existing cameras by eliminating the older style cameras and repositioning others for better coverage, particularly on the 1st floor garage
  • Add cameras to each parking level to cover as many vehicles and storage units as possible
  • Install web-based recording system for all cameras
  • Install Wifi for the garage so that vehicles with onboard cameras and alerts are activated
  • Enhance the 1st floor elevator vestibule doors with magnetic locks, intercom and a camera system. Magnetic locks to be tied into the fire control panel so they are automatically unlocked during an event triggered by the panel.
  • Elleven Management is working with their gate vendor to explore increasing the closure times for the exit gates
  • Continue to partner with Elleven and Guard-Systems Inc. emphasizing our limited resources in the garage

If any residents have experience in access control systems, security cameras, and fire doors and are available to volunteer to help with this important project, please reach out to Francis Langlois at flanglois@actionlife.com or Taylor Jones at tjones@actionlife.com.
