Open House Sign Policy

The San Elijo Hills Community Association has a very specific sign policy in place regarding Open House signs in the community implemented to keep our community beautiful! The San Elijo Hills Community Association’s governing documents prohibit the display of any non-Association signs in the Common Area.  The intent of the San Elijo Hills Open House Sign Policy is to (1) provide an acceptable means for homeowners to market homes for sale within the community; (2) reduce the number of open house signs used in the community; and (3) discourage the ‘alternative’ means of signage that have been used in the past (sign spinners, signs on cars, etc).

It is your responsibility as the homeowner to notify your agent of the policy prior to putting out their signage. If it does not follow the guidelines, it will be removed and disposed of. The Open House Policy can be found on our website www.sanelijohills.netfor your convenience. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Bradley Park plan OK’d, but funding tough | UTSanDiego.com

SAN MARCOS CA — Big plans have been hatched for Bradley Park — new football/soccer fields, another baseball field, improvements to existing fields and lots more parking.

Big plans, but they cost big money, more than $12 million. So now comes the search for funds. And that’s the big unknown.

San Marcos City Council last month approved a master plan for the 24-acre park, which sits along Rancho Santa Fe Road south of Linda Vista Drive. READ MORE via Bradley Park plan OK’d, but funding tough | UTSanDiego.com.

Local Girl Scouts join Vallecitos Water District in its war against sewer grease

Girl Scouts

 

San Marcos, CA – The next time Girl Scouts knock on doors in San Marcos it will have nothing to do with buying a sweet treat for yourself and everything to do with buying into a healthier environment for everyone.

This is because starting on April 13, 2014, girls from the organization’s Troop 4642 of San Marcos will be ditching the delicious cookies they usually sell to assist Vallecitos Water District in providing a community service by handing out free fat trappers to keep residents from pouring cooking grease down the drain and ultimately preventing sewer spills.

The fat-trappers, small containers housing multiple disposal bags to store used cooking grease, have been vital in the agency’s battle against excess fats, oils and grease that enter the sewer system to form blockages. Over time, these blockages can cause sewer spills which can pollute our creeks, lakes and beaches.

Although already free to the public, teaming up with troop 4642 will not only assist the girls in meeting their organization’s community education requirement, but will also assist the District in placing fat-trappers at more homes to further protect the environment.

Once the 8 and 9 year olds – who recently visited the District to receive background information on the community hazard caused by excess fats, oils and grease – complete their distribution of 45 fat trappers, they will receive a special Vallecitos Water District patch for their uniform and recognition from the District’s Board of Directors for their efforts at an upcoming meeting.

New momentum for San Marcos Creek District

City secures $26M in grants; first project approved

— After years of inactivity because of the economy and the demise of redevelopment agencies, there’s new momentum this year behind plans to create a large shopping and housing district on a 217-acre flood plain in the heart of San Marcos.

City officials recently secured $26 million in federal and state grants needed for $47 million in infrastructure work aimed at making the mostly empty area more appealing to developers.

That work is expected to begin in fall 2016 and conclude two years later, said Mike Edwards, the city’s director of public works.
