Dear Boardie


Q. Where do I put my bike (s)?


A. Joseph Arellano, our Building Manager will find

you a spot in the bike rack in the lower garage.

 Q. It’s pretty crowded down there.

 A. If your parking space is in the lower garage near a wall, Joseph may be able to install a wall rack for your bike(s) on the wall in front of your car.

 Q. Do I need any special marking to ID my bike?

 A. Yes. Joseph will log your bike and issue you a special sticker for your bike.

 Q. Is there a deadline to get a bike ID from Joseph?

 A.  Good question! Yes! April 1 is the deadline to get your bike logged and ID-ed. After April 1 we will saw off your lock and donate your bike to charity.

 Q. Do I need to lock my bike in the lower garage?

 A. Yes! Even though we have a locked gate AND a Security Guard all night, we have had burglars.

 NEW MANAGEMENTAs of April 1, we will have a new management company: Menas HOA Management. Our new Managers (yes two!) are listed on the bottom of page 2. You should have received a Welcome Package already with the details.




Pacific Tower Homeowner’s Association has a monthly meeting, usually the third Tuesday of every month and if you’re an owner, you’re invited! Meet your Board members and neighbors. Find out where your $540 is going. We’d love to have you! If you get bored, you’re welcome to leave – no pressure.


Since the pandemic, we’ve held our meetings on Zoom instead of gathering in- person in the Rec Room and many owners have taken advantage of participating virtually from the comfort of their units. Pajamas are okay (if not too sexy).


At the beginning of each meeting, homeowners are invited to ask questions of the Board, raise issues or lodge complaints for five minutes per person.


If you have a computer and would like to get a Zoom invitation for the next meeting, please email. If you don’t have a computer, you can still join the meeting by phone. The meeting announcement posted in the Lobby four days before the meeting will include the Zoom Meeting phone number so you can join by phone.



President – Mark Cabaj, Vice President - Karyl Miller, Secretary – Julie Menas, Treasurer – Anthony Mariucci, Directors – Troy Krich, Robin Del Pape, and George Kyrala.

Covid Updates and Rules

While the California indoor mask mandate looks like it will expire this month, the COVID-19 rates remain high. To respect our neighbors – both vaccinated and not yet eligible – we ask that you still at least at least have a mask at-the-ready. And please don’t be offended if your neighbor prefers to ride the elevator alone. None of the children in the building are vaccinated (yet). Thank you for your consideration.
