Community Updates – July 23rd

Dear Luma Residents,

Luma Window and Building Wash Continues – Plants and Furniture

Monday, July 26th the team will continue cleaning the 16 stack windows on Hope St.  Please see the attached files for schedules and a detailed explanation of the procedures each unit resident needs to take to ensure the best quality service.  Please keep in mind that the window cleaners are not responsible for moving plants, furniture or other items on your balcony to gain access to the windows.  If there are obstructions, your windows will not be cleaned.

Balcony Floor Coverings

It’s come to our attention that some residential balconies now have floor coverings.  Please note that flooring needs to be submitted to the Architectural Review Committee and approved, prior to being installed.  “No building, fence, wall or other structure shall be commenced, erected or maintained upon the project, nor shall there be any improvement or addition to or change in the interior or exterior of any unit, structure or other improvement including, without limitation, the painting of exterior walls and balcony floors, installing tile or other material on balcony floors, unless plans and specifications have been submitted to and approved by the Architectural Review Committee.”  Applications for submittal and the Architectural Guidelines can be downloaded from the Resident Portal https://resident.actionlife.com/Account/Login?ReturnUrl=%2F

Please contact the management office if you have any questions.

Trash Chute Doors – Close Completely

Please be sure that the trash chute door closes completely after you have disposed of your trash.  If there is an obstruction that prevents it from closing all the way, the chute locks all other floors out.  If you have a problem or are experiencing an issue with the trash chute, please contact the front desk immediately (213) 742-0387.  Thank you for your cooperation!

Community Update – July 16th

Dear Luma Residents,

Mosquitos – Suggestions to Prevent and Control

Mosquitoes are often a nuisance during warmer months. They multiply quickly and can become a problem if you do not take steps to control their population. But as with most pests, control starts with prevention.  Your Association takes several steps every month to help mitigate this problem in the common areas but there is a lot you can do to help yourself and your neighbors.

Here’s how to prevent mosquitoes around your home and community:

Remove Sources of Standing Water – This is the most important step.  Mosquitoes lay their eggs in and around standing water. Eliminating sources of stagnant water around your home is one of the most effective measures of helping to prevent mosquitoes. Check potted plants, flower vases, containers left on your balcony that may allow water to accumulate. This will eliminate the habitat that certain types of mosquitos need to thrive.

If you have sources of standing water outside, such as pet bowls, be sure to change the water at least once a week. By doing so, you’ll interrupt the mosquito breeding process and help prevent any eggs laid in the water from reaching adulthood. 

Protect Yourself – When you are outdoors, there are a few additional steps you can take to help prevent bothersome mosquito bites. First, avoid being outside during dawn and dusk, when many species of mosquitoes are most active. Second, wear long pants and sleeves if possible to limit exposed skin. Finally, a mosquito repellent.   According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), products containing the following active ingredients typically provide reasonably long-lasting protection:

DEET

Picaridin

Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) or PMD

IR3535

Call a Professional – Often times, effectively controlling mosquitoes around your home means seeking the help of professionals. Mosquitoes produce rapidly, and their populations can be difficult to control. Trained mosquito control professionals know where mosquitoes hide and the best control methods to use. 

Mask mandate: New LA County health order requires face coverings indoors as COVID cases spike

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is re-implementing a mandate requiring residents to wear masks while indoors, regardless of their vaccination status.

The county previously only recommended mask-wearing indoors. The new mandate will take effect at 11:59 p.m. Saturday night, officials announced.

That means you and all your guests will need to wear a properly fitted face covering while in any of the Association’s indoor common areas.

UPDATE: Power Shut Down July 7th

There has been a change to the duration of the shut-down from six hours to four hours.  EverCharge, our Electric Vehicle (EV) installation vendor will soon be connecting the EV transformer to the existing building power.  To accomplish this, they need to shut down power for a four (4) hour period. The shut-down is scheduled for Wednesday, July 7th between the hours of 10AM to 2PM.  As a precautionary measure, please backup all computers, programs, pictures, documents and data, and shut-off all electronic devices (TV’s, computers, monitors, IPADS etc.). The air conditioning for individual units, both residential and commercial, will not be working during the outage. Please remember that the units can quickly get warm so please keep your pets safe.  During the outage, there will be no power inside units and no running water. 

Pool and Spa Reopened

Recently, the pool and spa needed to be drained as a result of someone breaking a glass container on the deck.  Broken glass in the pool and spa is a big safety concern which is why no glass or sharp objects are allowed in the pool and spa area.  If glass or sharp objects are brought to the pool area and they cause an accident, the responsible Owner will be liable for the cost of any resulting damage or injury. Only plastic or suitable non-breakable containers are allowed in the pool and spa area.  Pets are not allowed in the pool and spa area.  See complete listing of all the Terrace, Pool and Spa Rules under the tab Documents/ Rules and Regulations.

EV Charging Installation Update

The EverCharge team will be onsite next week Tuesday through Friday.  On Wednesday, they’ll be connecting power to the building, on the other days, they’ll be working on the basement level, 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors starting at 9AM each day.  They’ll be installing conduit on all of those floors, drilling and hammering.  For yours and their safety, please follow all instructions from the EverCharge team.
