Updated Emergency Rules

At an emergency Board Meeting held on June 14, 2020, the Board of Directors approved the following guidelines to reflect the County and State reopening to begin on Tuesday, June 15,2021 at 12:01 a.m.

All vaccinated residents and guests have unmasked access throughout all indoor and outdoor common areas and spaces.

Unvaccinated residents and guests must wear a mask in all indoor common areas. We also suggest you wear a mask in outdoor spaces.

All amenity areas (fitness center, pool, spa, lounges, etc.) are now fully open to pre-pandemic capacities (masking guidelines for unvaccinated residents and guests apply).

Vendors and staff must follow County, Cal/OSHA, and State guidelines and wear masks until otherwise directed.

Determination of vaccination status is on the honor system.

All residents and guests should respect each other’s request for social distancing or usage of confined spaces such as elevators.

Anyone who feels unsafe at any time should wear a mask.

These guidelines are in effect until further notice.

Volunteers Wanted

The HOA Board is considering other locations in Horizons for the Fitness Center.

We are looking for 3 to 4 fitness enthusiasts to work with the Project Committee and an outside fitness center expert.  This group would provide ideas and opinions regarding this project.

Virtual Townhall Strategic Planning Meeting

The Board of Directors will be holding a Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 5:00 PM via Zoom to discuss long range strategic planning. See Zoom Meeting information at the bottom of this message.

Strategic planning is used by successful organizations to help identify their strengths and opportunities, and know what weaknesses and threats they may have. The Horizons Association Board of Directors wants to develop a Long-Range Plan to help guide us through the next five years as we undertake projects and programs to maintain and increase the value of our property.  This effort will produce a written document that can be used to reference during the preparation of the Annual Budget and communicate to Owners what projects will be undertaken and when. In addition, the Plan will identify funding for routine maintenance and replacement of building infrastructure. Lastly the Plan can identify and prioritize ongoing programs to keep and build the character of our “community”. 

Horizon’s Community and Character

We are an urban residential community of owners who have their primary residence at Horizon’s or use as an exclusive second home. We also welcome renters. We have a strong, congenial membership who embraces urban living, participate in community events and utilize the amenities of our buildings. We believe we live in one of the best high-rises in one of the best cities in the country.

Our buildings are approaching 20 years old. Our reserves are strong. We are in an excellent position to move forward and maintain and improve our “position” in downtown San Diego.

Process to develop a Strategic Plan with a Five-Year Project Plan

1. Read through this material and develop ideas to share with the Board and other Owners during two different Workshops. What improvement projects are important to you? What programs or activities should Horizons work to maintain or improve? What programs or activities should the Board help to start?

2. Participate in the October 8, 2020 Townhall Meeting; 5:00 pm Zoom

Share ideas, comment on new ideas made, learn what other Owners think.

3. Look for the Draft Plan. After the first Townhall meeting, the Board will develop a draft Strategic Plan, which will include a five-year project plan and program ideas. This document will be shared by email before the second Townhall meeting.

4. Participate Again at the November 11, 2020 Townhall meeting; 5:00 pm Zoom

Learn what others think about the plan, share your comment and suggestions.

5. The Board will discuss and adopt the Strategic Plan in December.

This meeting will be held after the 2020 election. This would give new Board members a voice in the adoption of the final Plan.

The Outline the Association Board is using to Develop the Plan

Define Priorities/Goals/Objectives

  • Identify and agree on key priorities (generic – life/health/safety, maintenance (reactive and preventative/proactive, aesthetics, improved amenities, etc.)

  • Plan for fiscal support to fund priorities over a 5-year planning cycle (include estimates and target funds to achieve)
  • Review and refresh on a regular basis. Assure funding plan is maintained to support goals
  • Use existing tools to help manage movement to goals (e.g., reserve study, annual budget, payments towards reserves, etc.)
  • Develop new tools/process were needed to achieve goals and/or move toward measurable progress (e.g., forecasting/what if spreadsheet, regular owner inputs, resetting of priorities, etc.)
  • Identify capital improvement items not currently funded/planned in reserves – identify fundraising methods

Identify specific projects to support goals – Map each to a priority (e.g., life/safety, maintenance, aesthetics, improved amenities, etc.) Identify funding source (e.g. reserves, capital investment, operating, contingency, etc.)

Action Management Newsletter for Our Communities

Residents of Horizons,

We at Action Management would like to send everyone a heartfelt message of unity during this very stressful time. We are all in this together and know that staying at home in our sunny and active San Diego can certainly be difficult. The attached newsletter has some wonderful recommendations on how to stay physically active and mentally stimulated during our stay in place.

On a personal note, I’d like to share a conversation I had today with a homeowner who had a sewing machine delivered with needles and fabric. She stated that she had always wanted to learn to sew and was taking this opportunity to teach herself. This gave me such a feeling of encouragement to explore and learn things that we normally wouldn’t have time to do and found it to be such an inspiration. So inspired, I have decided that this weekend, I am going to teach myself how to bake bread.

What will be the new thing that inspires you to try something that you have always wanted to do? We would love to hear from you. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Warmest Regards,
Daniela Enck | General Manager
