Winne and John
We felt like actors in a perfectly written and directed play. It was as if a roadshow production of “The Music Man” came to our town and asked us to star in the leading roles. Nicolas Jonville, noted playwright, producer and director selected us and our home as the setting for his long running productions of “Selling Your Home.” We were experienced actors and had a wonderful set for the play. With the expert help of Nicolas and his staff and subcontractors, the staging was completed and the rehearsals were held. Opening night was an unexpected rush as our audience gushed at the entire performance. Once again the Jonville Team received thunderous applause from the adoring San Elijo Hills community. We felt privileged to be a part of this production.

Vellecitos Water District Office


On Wednesday, May 20, 2015, the Vallecitos Water District Board of Directors took action in response to the Governor’s Executive Order and the State Water Resources Control Board’s (SWRCB) emergency urban water conservation regulations.

The Board voted to limit outdoor irrigation to 8 minutes per station, two days per week from June 1 through October 31. This will help the District achieve the 24% reduction in water use mandated by the Governor.

In addition, the Board also adopted edicts from the SWRCB’s emergency drought resolution in their new ordinance. The District’s ordinance now restricts watering within 48 hours of a rain event, irrigating street medians and adjacent landscape strips using potable water and requires all leaks to be repaired within 48 hours of notification by the District. The new Ordinance can be found here: The existing Policy on conservation can be found here:

The District is committed to its community-wide conservation goal aimed at keeping as much water as possible in storage for 2015 and beyond. As a proactive measure, the District initiated drought patrols in its service area. District employees are on duty in the pre-dawn hours and during the day looking for drought ordinance violations. When a violation is spotted, the information is noted and the customer will be contacted to provide assistance with ways to conserve water, available water conservation rebates, as well as general information on how the District can help customers save water.

Since the patrols started on May 11, staff has documented over 250 instances of water waste. Nearly all of them are due to irrigation runoff. If a runoff problem exists, it could be caused by many factors, most easily repaired or adjusted, including broken or misaligned sprinkler heads, compacted soil, or sprinklers that may be running for too long. The District urges all customers to check their irrigation system and correct any problems. For more information or to schedule a free irrigation audit, please visit

Local Real Estate Team Unites Community Through Annual Event


The Jonville Team celebrated their 10th Annual community garage sale and charity event.

The Jonville Team, located in San Marcos, CA, is associated with Keller Williams Carlsbad and coordinates and produces a community garage sale and charity event each year for the communities of San Elijo Hills and Old Creek Ranch. This year marked the 10th year anniversary for the community wide event that so many residents look forward to. The event took place on Saturday, May 16 from 7am to 11am.

“We wanted to create an event that serves a community need while also giving back to local causes that are close to heart ” said Nicolas Jonville, co-founder of the Jonville Team. “Each year, I’m amazed at the participation level and the amount of money, through the help of residents, that we have been able to raise for these local causes. It makes all the hard work that the entire Jonville Team puts into producing the event well worth it.”

Residents that wanted to participate in the event were asked to sign up online and agree to a $10.00 donation. In return, The Jonville Team would market, advertise and produce the event. In addition, a map is created of the community and handed out the day of the event to shoppers with the participating homes and items of interest marked. All the proceeds from the donation and map sales went to local causes.

This year saw an all time high in garage sale participation. Over 140 homes opened up their garages and driveways to sell goods and through their donation, $1,450.00 was raised. This year, those funds will be split between San Elijo Elementary School and Case de Amparo. In addition, many residents worked together to sell goods and raise money for other social causes such as sports teams, school organizations and health causes.

Fire families say thank you | San Diego 6 News

SAN DIEGO –  Looking Back at the May 2014 Firestorm: How A Community Showed Thanks to Firefighters Who Saved Their Homes. When the Cocos Fire roared through San Marcos last May, Stephanie Cowan wondered if her San Elijo Hills home would survive the flames. “Its was so scary,” she says remembering that day. “Neighbors were packing their cars as I was driving home. You could see the flames.” After the fire, she says she was overcome with relief and gratitude for the firefighters who saved her home. “Everyone who came back was so thankful that our houses were still here and I just wanted to capture that, express that.” Cowan did capture that emotion by producing a video featuring many of her neighbors thanking firefighters.
