Project Size

Large maintenance projects are put out for bid to one or more maintenance vendors. An example of this is the maintenance of the lift station. In contrast, the Maintenance Committee tackles small projects on a volunteer basis and saves the Association money. Without such a committee, the Association would spend additional money on labor for small projects. The maintenance committee does not tackle problems that are the responsibility to the owner. An example of this is the setting of the pathway gate timers.

Reporting Issues

To report issues regarding items that are maintained by the Association, please use board@crownharbor.org or see the contact list for other options.
  • For residents with a toilet back up, contact Associa Northern California immediately. Associa will dispatch a plumber who can determine the source of the blockage. If the clog is in the sewer lateral, then the cost of clearing it is covered by the Association. If the clog is inside the plumbing for the Unit, then the cost of clearing it is the responsibility of the Owner. Each unit has its own clean out (typically outside the front door), and the Association has a sewer lift station. The plumber can consider these factors when addressing the issue. Information about sewer lines is on the Sewer Laterals page.

  • For residents with a leak, contact Associa Northern California immediately. Associa will dispatch A‑One Roofing who can determine the source of the leak. If the leak is caused by the roof or siding, then the cost of repair is covered by the Association. If the leak is caused by a door, window, or skylight, then the cost of repair is the responsibility of the Owner.

 
flag

American Flag

Crown Harbor has an American flag on a pole at its entrance. The flag is lit at night via a solar-powered light ring at the top of the pole. Although there is specific flag etiquette that defines the process and occasions for lowering the flag to half mast, the bottom line and defining point as it applies to Crown Harbor is that the etiquette is strictly guidelines for non-government entities. There is no requirement nor expectation that the Crown Harbor flag be lowered to half mast on any occasion. The pole was specifically designed to place the tie-down cleat (where the rope ties off) well above the reach of vandals who might defame "Old Glory." As such, raising or lowering the flag is a dangerous process that requires use of a 16-foot ladder. Hence, the flag is always at full mast.

In memory of Tom

Thomas Linney was Crown Harbor's first Maintenance Committee Chairman. He and his wife, Joyce, were original owners at Crown Harbor. Crown Harbor is a better place as a result of Tom's years of service helping maintain our facilities. Tom was a great guy. Tom was always willing to engage in spirited conversation on his daily walks throughout the community. Tom will be sorely missed. We will always remember Tom.
