Short Term Rentals

We have received an increase in concerns regarding short term rentals such as on Airbnb. Pursuant to section 8.2 Rental of Dwelling in the Association’s governing documents, No owner may lease such Owner’s Lot or improvement thereon for hotel, motel or transient purposes. Any lease which is either for a period of fewer than 30 days or pursuant to which the lessor provides any services normally associated with a hotel shall be deemed to be for transient purposes. Please be respectful of your neighborhood and refrain from participating. The Association does periodically verify on these sites and action will be taken accordingly.

We appreciate your efforts!

Noise

If you are an early riser, be mindful of your night-owl neighbors who enjoy sleeping in. Also, be kind to your neighbors whose job or family responsibilities mean they get up early every day. Remember, noise at any time of the day is illegal if it is considered a nuisance by your neighbors and could result in hefty fines with the City. The City of San Marcos quiet hours are between 10 pm to 7 am on weekdays and 11 pm to 7 am on weekends.

Hitting A Home Run for William Bradley Park in San Marcos

Saturday, December 2, 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (rain or shine). Media can film b-roll of renovation work being performed and conduct interviews with participating donors and Project EverGreen staff. From Noon – 1:00 p.m. there will be a donor recognition ceremony, honoring Hunter Industries, participating landscape contractors and suppliers, and the City of San Marcos Parks & Recreation Department.

William Bradley Park, 1587 Linda Vista Dr, San Marcos, CA 92078

Project EverGreen, San Marcos-based Hunter Industries, Southern California Sports Turf Managers Association and local landscape and nursery businesses.

The playing surface of William Bradley Park’s Field # 3 has become uneven due to the settling of decomposing organic matter (the park was built on a former landfill in the 1960s). Field # 3 receives significant year around usage – an estimated 4,000 youth use the multi-sport field annually for baseball, softball, soccer and lacrosse – and is in immediate need of attention.

Project EverGreen, with a Hunter Industries community service grant and Hunter Helping Others employees,  along with the Southern California Sports Turf Managers Association, and local landscape contractors and suppliers –  all volunteers, have come together to donate time, expertise and supplies – with an estimated value exceeding $22,000 – to make this improvement in the City of San Marcos a reality.

Renovation Project Facts & Community Benefits

The renovation of William Bradley Park Field # 3 encompasses a variety of elements and tasks that will not only revitalize the park’s green spaces but also provide a sustainable platform for future generations to enjoy and maintain the facility. Work scheduled to be completed includes:

  • Grass aeration
  • Weed control
  • Add nutrients to improve grass health
  • Cut field turfgrass edges, install new sod to improve player safety
  • Field laser level grading
  • Install Infield clay soil mix
  • Install outfield warning track mix
  • Outfield top dress sand to fill in uneven areas
  • Field and shrub beds Irrigation repair and re-alignment
  • New trees and shrubs bed planting
  • Mulching plant beds
  • Repair and paint ballfield dugouts, benches, fences, and backstop
  • Re-seeding
