New Door Designs

Recently the Board of Directors approved the attached two new front door designs as options for door replacements.

Please remember that all exterior improvements need to be approved prior to installation. An architectural application can be downloaded from the resident portal at www.resident.actionlife.com.


Community Reminders

If you see something, say something. If you see a maintenance issue or observe a violation of the Rules & Regulations, please contact Action Property Management at 949-450-0202 or you may email your Community Manager. This number can be used for after-hours emergencies as well. Attention homeowners/investors: If you are renting your unit, please be sure that a copy of the Rules & Regulations are provided to your tenant.


Organics Recycling Program

As of January 1, 2022, the City of Laguna Niguel has implemented a new Organics Recycling Program. CR&R Waste Environmental Services will be delivering special carts that will be placed in each trash enclosure on Thursday, February 10, 2022. These containers will be emptied twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays. In addition, each resident will receive a small kitchen food scrape container to place organic waste. CR&R representatives will be delivering the small containers along with instructions on how to use them to reach resident between February 14th and February 18th. Feel free to reach out to CR&R Environmental Services at 800-826-9677 if you have any questions on this program.


Holiday Season Reminders

It is that time of the year and the holiday season is upon us. For most of us that means out of town guests, holiday decorations, parties and gift shopping. With how busy we can all get, we tend to forget the simplest things, so we wanted to share ways to help celebrate with less chaos and stress!

  • Lock your vehicles – To try and prevent from any unfortunate incident, we ask that you remember to lock your vehicle and remove all personal belongings with value out of public view.
  • Package theft – Unfortunately, mail and package theft during the holidays has become an issue. It only takes a moment for a thief to grab a package from a door step. If you are expecting a package or delivery, please arrange for someone to be home or have the package delivered to an alternative address.
  • Parking – Please be cautious of the Association’s Parking Rules. If you have guests staying, ensure they are parking in appropriate parking spaces to avoid any unfortunate towing incidents.
  •  Decorations – Inspect all holiday decorations and lighting before installing. It only takes a small wire or socket crack to cause a short circuit or fire.

Happy 4th of July

The Nevis Milano Board of Directors and Action Property Management would like to wish all homeowners a happy and safe 4th of July! We hope that you get to share this special day with family and friends.

This is a friendly reminder that fireworks, even “safe and sane” ones, are prohibited in the City of Laguna Niguel. You can anonymously report illegal or dangerous firework use by calling 714-538-3501. Please call 911 in the event of any urgent safety issue where there is a threat to life or property so emergency personnel can respond immediately.

Please refrain from using any personal fireworks on the property and plan on observing an approved fireworks display at a local venue.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in ensuring that this 4th of July is a fun and safe day for all residents!


Communitywide Wood and Wrought Iron Repair & Building Repainting Project

The Association will be undertaking a communitywide wrought iron repair, wood repair and repainting project, in which all of the damaged wood and wrought iron in the community will be repaired/replaced, and the buildings will be repainted in a new color scheme. Accord Construction Management was retained to prepare the scope of work, assist with the bidding process, and perform project oversight. The scope of work for the project has been approved by the Board and proposals are currently being solicited to complete the project. It is anticipated that the project will begin in the first part of 2021.

The Board of Directors has worked with Vista Paint to select a new color scheme for the buildings, which also includes the painting of the garage doors. The Board feels that the new paint colors will update the look of the community and enhance property values. A rendering of a sample building with the approved colors is posted on the Clubhouse door with the actual color swatches for residents to take a look at.

The Association will provide updates to the community regarding this project as it progresses. 


Community Manager Update

Community Manager Rhonda Hart will be on maternity leave starting September 21, 2020 and will return in January 2021. Carmen Portela will be serving as the Community Manager in her absence. She can be reached at (949) 450-0202, or via email to cportela@actionlife.com.

As always, any account inquiries or maintenance requests can be directed to Action Property Management’s Community Care Department at communitycare@actionlife.com or (800) 400-2284.


New Parking Patrol Company

The Association has contracted with OC Patrol to begin parking patrol services effective September 1, 2020. They will be conducting once daily patrols to enforce the Association’s parking rules. Residents and their guests parking in violation of the rules will be issued a citation and possible tow, which will be at the vehicle owner’s expense.

Please make sure that you are using your assigned garage or carport for the parking of a vehicle to help ensure there is sufficient parking in the common area. It is against the Association’s governing documents to use the garage or carport for storage or any other purpose than parking. Residents who are found to be using their garage or carport for purposes other than parking will be sent a violation notice and are subject to fines if the issue is not resolved.

Lastly, the Board has suspended enforcement of the rule that requires that vehicles parked in common area parking spaces be moved at least every 96 hours (4 days) due to the pandemic and many people working from home. THIS RULE WILL START TO BE ENFORCED AGAIN BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 1, 2020. Please make sure that you and your guests are moving their vehicles every 96 hours to avoid a citation and possible tow.

Thank you for your cooperation!
