Greetings Evo Residents and Homeowners,
Please see updates below.
New Resident Portal
The Vivo Portal, which was available previously, is transitioning to the new Resident Portal. The Resident Portal can allow you to access vital information, update your records, view correspondence, and manage your homeowner account (unit owners only.) If you have not yet registered your account, you may do so by visiting https://resident.actionlife.com and following the onscreen prompts. All residents may register and create an account. Homeowners, you will need to enter your account number for homeowner access, which will allow you to manage your account online and access homeowner documents. Contact the management office for assistance with your account number.
If you were previously registered on the Vivo Portal, you will need to “migrate” your account to the new Resident Portal. To accomplish this, just log in once to the new Resident Portal using your same email address and password from your Vivo Portal account and follow a few onscreen prompts. You will be asked to change your password.
If you encounter any difficulty, please contact the management office and we will be glad to assist you.
South Garage Gate Status Update
Since the replacement of the door operator this last summer, a part named limit assembly keeps failing. The installer has not been able to resolve this situation despite several attempts. It has now been decided to involve the manufacturer to fix or replace the operator and related parts. In the meantime, a patrol is monitoring the gate 24/7 and the installer/manufacturer is responsible for all incurred cost.
New Electrical Billing
The electrical charges for September billing period have been processed and posted to all accounts. As a reminder, all charges, beginning with this month going forward, are based on actual measured electrical consumption. Previously, electrical charges were determined based on your unit’s square footage only. Due to this change in billing method, you may notice a change in the amount of your electrical bill. Please call the management office if you have any questions regarding your bill.
Gas Testing at the Aven
The gas company will be purging the system of natural gas at the Aven construction site, across the street from Evo at 1120 S. Grand Ave., next week, Monday October 22 – Friday October 26, 2018. We have been informed that there may be a gas odor in the air, but this is typical for this process and there is no danger.

Maintenance Reminder HVAC System
A friendly reminder to make sure to perform required maintenance on your hvac system at recommended intervals. Failure to do so can result in system failure requiring expensive repairs, replacement, and failure of the system can also cause water leaks, damaging your unit as well as neighboring units and common areas. Be sure to:
- Change the air filter in your hvac system at least twice per year. Evo staff can perform this service for a small fee. Contact the front desk to request it.
- Have your unit inspected by a certified technician at least once per year in order to detect any problems
- Keep the hvac unit clear of obstructions. Obstructions can create conditions that may damage the system.
This document contains further maintenance recommendations to ensure that your system continues to run as effectively as possible.
