Happy Holidays from Your Board of Directors:
In observance of Halloween, we have decorated a few palm trees in orange and purple lights that will be illuminated on Friday, October 21st through the 31st.
Environmental Solutions (arborist) will be here at the end of October to work on the trees that are not Arecas.
Richard at 808 Maintenance has been performing a lot of repairs throughout the complex, so if there are any urgent issues that need to be addressed, please contact Michelle Zeigler, Resident Manager, right away.
Unit Registration Forms are available online or you can contact the resident manager and receive it via email.

MODIFICATIONS OF COMMON ELEMENTS:
The below references to our Declaration and By-laws are what the Board has advised on numerous occasions regarding modifications to common elements are to be vetted through the resident manager and the Board of Directors before making any said repair or modification.

PARKING LOT SAFETY
Please be aware, for the safety of all, that our parking lot is also a pedestrian walkway and drive accordingly. Drivers sometimes move at a speed appropriate for a roadway, so be aware and watch for neighbors, people walking their dogs, and especially children. Additionally, the parking lot is not an appropriate place for children to play, please ensure your children are aware, especially children on riding their scooters, etc.
The complex website is now current and has been updated to ensure the latest information and initiatives are provided as we move on them. Kaimalamarina@org.com has every form or contact number that you will need.
Please be aware, for the safety of all, that children should be accompanied by a parent or guardian AT ALL TIMES while their children are on the marina, and especially while engaged in fishing of any kind, which could be a potential trip-and-fall hazard that the Kaimala Marina AOAO would not be responsible for in any way.
Alakai Mechanical will be performing high-risk pipe assessments on individual units (t/b/d).
WD Industries LLC will be restriping the parking lot (t/b/d).
Recreation Center Kitchen Renovation (t/b/d).
