Columbus Grove Trash Talk
 
Please be advised that the Community Guidelines regarding trash containers will still be enforced during this time and courtesy notices will continue to be issued. (See below)
 
Community Guidelines: Trash Containers can be set out for a reasonable period (no earlier than 6:00 p.m. on the day before scheduled trash collection time and no later than midnight the day of pick up. We are requesting that you please keep your trash container(s) out of view except on trash day.
 
We understand with families staying at home now, that there will be more household trash accumulated. Please do not use the common area community trashcans and dog waste stations to dump extra trash bags as it causes them to overflow and not only makes a mess but is also a potential health hazard. If you are experiencing an influx of extra trash within your household, please call your respective waste management company to order an extra trashcan to remedy the issue.
 
 
Playgrounds & Pool Closures
 
As you know, Governor Newsom issued a shelter-in-place order to protect California from the COVID-19 crisis and the Orange County Health Department and both Cities of Irvine and Tustin have taken similar action to protect the local public, therefore all the playgrounds and swimming pools have been closed. For your protection the HOA Board, Legal Counsel & Property Management have sided with State, County and City mandates to safeguard our community from COVID-19.
 
Management has been instructed to follow and continue to follow the emergency directives, mandates, and orders set forth by State, County and Local governments in order to protect and secure the facilities, playgrounds, and any HOA property. The HOA is only thinking of the safety and wellbeing of you and your loved ones and of our community as a whole. Please help us in this matter and understand that this is only for a period of time. Thank you and stay safe and well.

Hello Columbus Grove Homeowners & Residents,
 
The OC Health Care Agency has released information regarding medical resilience during a public health emergency:
 
As the spread and far-reaching impacts of Covid-19 dominate the world news, we have all witnessed and experienced the parallel spread of worry, anxiety, and uncertainty. The way to overcome this natural tendency is to build our mental resilience, the ability to refocus, clear our minds, and discard negative thoughts. What you can do:
 
1. Remember that knowledge is power. Understanding the factors that affect a person’s immune response to COVID-19 will matter as much as, or more than, understanding the virus. There is great information available on the OC Health Care Agency website, www.ochealthinfo.com/novelcoronavirus.
 
2. Don’t accept everything you read or hear. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides information and frequent updates on the COVID-19’s spread, severity, risk assessment, etc. on their website, www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov.
 
3. Get your emotional support system in place:
- Maintain familiar routines in daily life as much as possible; take care of your basic needs and employ helpful coping strategies: rest during work or between shifts, eat healthy food and engage in physical activity
- Stay connected with friends and family, even virtually connected, and maintain your social networks
- Have the emails and phone numbers of close friends and family handy
 
4. Take control and incorporate preventative measures
- See the CDC’s list of preventative measures
- A near-constant stream of news reports can cause anyone to feel anxious or distressed. Instead, seek updates and practical guidelines at intervals during the day.
- Be supportive to others. Assisting others in their time of need can benefit the person receiving support as well as the helper.
 
If you or a loved one are feeling anxiety, worry or fear related to the social disruption caused by COVID-19, you can reach out to these resources for support:
 
Call 1(855) OC-LINKS or visit www.ochealthinfo.com/oclinks Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm to talk or chat with a trained, clinical navigator.
 
The NAMI Warmline is also here to provide non-crisis support for anyone struggling with mental health concerns Monday through Friday from from 9 am to 3 am, and Saturday and Sunday 10 am to 3 am. 1(877) 910-WARM or www.namioc.org
 
National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)

For general information about COVID-19, please call the OC Health Care Agency’s (HCA) Health Referral Line at (800) 564-8448, visit http://www.ochealthinfo.com/novelcoronavirus, or follow the HCA on Facebook (@ochealthinfo) and Twitter (@ochealth).
 
For non-medical questions, contact the County of Orange Public Information Hotline at (714) 628-7085.
 
Message from the HOA and Property Management:
We appreciate all you are doing to look out for each other in these unprecedented times, which call for extra discipline, patience, consideration and restraint. With all of us working together, we can help slow the spread of this virus and stay safe and healthy. We will continue to monitor the situation with advice from health officials, and keep you informed along the way. Please stay safe & well!
 
 
 
IMPORTANT POOL UPDATE:
 
UPDATED 3/23/2020
 
Dear Columbus Grove Homeowners and Residents,
 
Due to the California statewide stay at home order and the OC Health Department which issued a directive prohibiting any public or private gatherings which includes all public pool areas, the pool will be closed for an indefinite amount of time.
 
Our pool technicians have been instructed to shut off all pool and spa heaters at this time since 1) they will not be used and 2) to slow the growth of any pathogens in the water. Official notices by the County Health Officer have been posted at the Grove House (Tustin) and Sweet Shade (Irvine) locations.
 
During this time, the facilities will be maintained to the standards of the OC Health Department, and as such we will continue to service all pools and spas in accordance with these regulations. The Health Department will continue to perform their inspections as usual and we will maintain the facilities consistent with the regulations governing the maintenance of these facilities.
 
We will be keeping tabs on the situation and updating the community once we receive new information. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all weather this unprecedented season together making the safety and well-being of our families and community our top priority.
 
IMPORTANT GROVE HOUSE LOBBY, GREAT ROOM & MANAGEMENT OFFICE UPDATE:
 
UPDATED 3/23/2020
 
Dear Columbus Grove Homeowners and Residents,
 
Due to the California statewide stay at home order, Columbus Grove will be closing the entrance to the Grove House Lobby and Management Office. We will also be putting a hold on any Great Room Rentals until further notice. If you have a pending rental reservation in place, management will be contacting you to discuss postponing your event for a later date or if you wish to cancel.  
 
As a safety precaution to our staff and to our community,  Property Management will be working primarily from home until further notice. However, General Manager, Fatima Lahouty and Assistant Manager, Michelle Phillips will still be available to provide you with excellent customer service by email & telephone during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm. (The office will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays until further notice.)
 
Emailing will be the preferred and faster way to communicate your needs and/or concerns.
General Manager, Fatima Lahouty: flahouty@powerstonepm.com
Assistant Manager, Michelle Phillips: mphillips@powerstonepm.com
 
Otherwise, you may also call the office at (949) 726-0720. If you leave a message, your phone call will be returned as soon as possible. If it is after hours, please call (800) 408-2242. Call Patrol Masters at (877) 648-0602 for general security concerns; however, in the event of an actual emergency always call 911. You may also visit our website columbusgrovehoa.com for various documents and additional information you may be seeking.
 
 
UPDATED 03/24/2020 
 
Dear Columbus Grove Homeowner or Resident,
 
As the COVID-19 situation around the U.S. and the world continues to evolve rapidly, we remain fully committed to the health and safety of our residents. We share your concerns and are doing what we can to defend against the potential spread of this virus to our community. The everyday actions we all take can have meaningful impact on COVID-19 defense.
 
Temporary suspension of resident events and Great Room rentals. Although we'll miss connecting with our residents at events, we must comply with the statewide stay at home order and cancel/postpone group gatherings at this time. This includes the Spring Eggstravaganza scheduled for 4/11/2020 and Yoga classes that are held weekly in the Great Room. We will also be putting a hold on any Great Room rentals until further notice. If you have a pending rental reservation in place, management will be contacting you to discuss postponing your event for a later date or if you wish to cancel.  
 
We're enhancing our daily cleaning regimen. Per the advice of local health departments and the CDC, we have increased the frequency of common-area cleaning in our community, with emphasis on bathrooms, door handles, tables, desks and other high-touch surfaces.
 
The Grove House lobby and management office will not be open to the public. Although our office will physically be closed, it will still remain open and staffed during regular business hours (Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm). We recommend that you email General Manager, Fatima Lahouty at flahouty@powerstonepm.com, or her assistant, Michelle Phillips at mphillips@powerstonepm.com, to help you with your requests or concerns. When possible, applications and documents can abe emailed or mailed to 16601 Sonora St., Tustin, CA 92782. If you wish to call the office at (949) 726-0720, you may leave a message and your phone call will be returned as soon as possible. If it is after hours, please call (800) 408-2242. Call Patrol Masters at (877) 648-0602 for general security concerns; however in the event of an actual emergency always call 911. You may also visit our website columbusgrovehoa.com for various documents and additional information you may be seeking.
 
Be a considerate neighbor in common-area spaces. As Californian residents are under the stay at home order and many are working from home and have children that are not in school, many people/families are going for walks and still using amenity spaces. We would highly discourage the use of the basketball courts and community parks if gathering in these places would exceed 10 people. If you are in these spaces, please practice appropriate social distancing, by keeping at least 6 feet between yourself and others. Extend patience and understanding to your neighbors in these potentially populated spaces.
 
We'll get through this together. While no actions can completely eliminate the possibility of illness, please know we are working as a united team to keep our community as clean & safe as possible. We appreciate all you are doing to look out for each other in these unprecedented times, which call for extra discipline, patience, consideration and restraint. With all of us working together, we can help slow the spread of this virus and stay safe and healthy. We will continue to monitor the situation with advice from health officials, and keep you informed along the way.
 
For more information about Covid-19, please visit the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention or World Health Organization or consult your state, county and local health agencies.
 
Stay Well!
 
The Columbus Grove Board of Directors & Property Management 

 
Welcome to Columbus Grove!  Here at Columbus Grove we continue to build strong community connections that grow. On every street, in every amenity and in the spirit of pride that courses through this community, Columbus Grove celebrates its heritage and continues the legacy of Tustin and Irvine’s founding fathers by providing today’s families with a vibrant place to live and thrive.
 
Columbus Grove enjoys an ideal place on the map: Central Orange County! From here you can easily access John Wayne Airport, major freeways, booming employment centers, and an array of entertainment destinations, including The Market Place, Irvine Spectrum, South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island.
 
 
 
 
Inspired by the beauty of Columbus Tustin’s prolific sycamore trees, Columbus Grove pays homage to a simpler way of life. The suburban streets celebrate the area’s agricultural past with signature heritage trees in front of historically designed homes. From authentic craftsman and California Bungalow, to farmhouse and Colonial Revival styles, and more, Columbus grove is a beautiful blend of architectural favorites.
 
We are more than a master planned community; Columbus Grove’s close knit appeal can be attributed to its well-planned social infrastructure. With an interactive website it’s easy to stay connected.
