What Do We Want From the Next L.A. Mayor?” May 26th Zócalo Event

Mayoral candidates in Los Angeles love to offer plans and make promises. But in L.A., City Hall is more likely to follow than to lead. Change here has always come from Angelenos themselves, and the ways we interact with each other and cope with the accidents, disasters, and ongoing challenges that define life in L.A. Before June’s first-round mayoral election, Zócalo tunes out the politicians and asks the people: what do we want for Los Angeles, and how might we get it? A panel moderated by KCRW’s Janaya Williams will discuss what an L.A. of the people, by the people, for the people could look like. For more information and to register, click here.

Drain Cleaning Notice

Kitchen Drain Cleaning

KITCHEN DRAIN CLEANING SCHEDULE
This notice is to inform you of this requirement to enter your unit to maintain common area drain lines.

As part of our comprehensive preventive maintenance program, we will begin scheduled cleaning of the kitchen sink plumbing drain lines. The work has been contracted out to ACCO Mechanical. Scheduled units will be entered to gain access to the kitchen sink drain or for inspection purposes.

Please note the nature of this work requires our Engineers and ACCO to perform it in sequential order, thus we are unable to accommodate any requests to alter the schedule. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you, however, we feel strongly the benefits far outweigh any temporary inconveniences.

On Tuesday May 31, 2022 we will begin cleaning Stack 02 (units ending in 02). Upon completion of Stack 02, we will proceed north (toward 11th St.) to Stacks 04 through stack 16 then stack 15. As shown on the schedule, we will then begin with Stack 01 (facing the Terrace) and will continue moving north to complete Stacks 01, 03, 05, 07, 09, 11 and 13 The final Stack to be cleaned is 13 on the north side of the building. The goal is to complete the entire building by June 21, 2022. Please keep in mind this is an approximate date of completion.

The attached schedule shows a layout of the above information. Please view this document to see the estimated date your drain lines will be cleaned. The last two digits of your unit number represent the Stack number (e.g. #1702 is in Stack 02 and #1316 is in Stack 16).

Please be advised that the dates of cleaning for each Stack may change due to unforeseen reasons, for your convenience, a daily schedule will be maintained on the bulletin board in the mailroom and will also be emailed with daily updates.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  - Hours of operation are 9 am to 5 pm, Monday thru Friday. No work will be performed on  Holidays.
  - Do not use the kitchen sink drain or dishwasher while your stack is being serviced.
  - Please check daily for updates, as schedules may change.
  - Please remove all items from under your kitchen sink so the Engineers and ACCO have unobstructed access to your drain.  
  - Please safely secure all pets on the day that the Engineers and ACCO will be entering your unit.
  - Please always report anything unusual or out of the ordinary no matter how small or insignificant it appears. We want every opportunity to minimize maintenance issues in a timely and efficient manner that benefits everyone that calls Luma home.
  - Never pour grease down your drain. This is the main reason that we are having to perform this work. If grease never entered our drainage system, we could easily eliminate this process. Help us help you.

Should you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the HOA office at 213-742-0387. Thank you.
