Annual Elections: December 13, 2016

This year’s Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 13th at 6:00PM at the San Elijo Hills Rec Center (1105 Elfin Forest Road, San Marcos, CA 92078).

Neighborhood Representatives are required to attend to the meeting to ensure quorum is established and the votes from their neighborhood are counted. All homeowners are also welcome to attend the meeting. Thank you all in advance for your participation in this process for our community!

Questhaven Park

As a reminder to residents, Questhaven Park is closed at dusk and persons in the park will be cited by the Sheriff. Please be courteous and refrain from entering this area after the park is closed, which often disturbs the residents nearby.

Parking

The Holiday season is upon us! Food, shopping, and school breaks (how are you going to get your shopping done?!) are most likely on your mind. Parking may not be on your radar. Add parking for guests during the Holidays on top of your current parking situation can always be a challenge. Not only is this a good time to think about where to put all those cars, but to consider the Association’s rules and year round parking issues within the community.

• Streets become more crowded when garages and driveways are not utilized for parking. Vehicles should be parked in available garage space first, then parked in the driveway, and then, if necessary, parked in the street.
• Garages shall be used for vehicles and other personal storage only.
• (Section 8.6): No trailer, camper, boat, recreation vehicle, commercial vehicle or similar equipment shall hereafter be permitted to remain upon the property (unless placed or maintained within an enclosed garage) nor permitted to be parked on any street, whether public or private, alley or community common area or project common area within the San Elijo Hills Community other than temporarily for purposes of loading, unloading or cleaning.
Pet Waste

Please pick up after your pets and remind your children to do so as well if they are responsible for the dog-walking duties. Don’t forget those common areas next to homes! Pet waste is probably the #1 complaint amongst our residents, so please be diligent and keep San Elijo Hills looking and smelling beautiful!

Trash Cans

We appreciate a majority of the homeowners that ensure trash cans are brought in and out on a regular basis!

Please remember that trash cans must be stored behind the side yard fence or in garages. Containers may not be placed outside for pick up before 6:00 p.m. on the day prior to service and must be removed no later than 9:00 p.m. the evening of pick up. In addition, homeowners may not put trash in receptacles that do not belong to them. Trash is collected in San Elijo Hills on Thursdays.

Thank you for your efforts!

Glenn Pruim Appointed as General Manager of the Vallecitos Water District

vwd_logo_-_water_wastewater_specialist_logo_2012-2

San Marcos, CA – The Vallecitos Water District (VWD) is pleased to announce that after a nationwide search with over 50 applicants, the VWD Board of Directors has appointed Glenn Pruim as its new General Manager. Mr. Pruim replaces Dennis O. Lamb, who retired last June.

Glenn Pruim received both his Bachelors and Masters of Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois. A registered engineer in Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Glenn Pruim has an extensive background in public works, engineering, and water and wastewater operations. During his ten years at the City of Carlsbad, he served as City Engineer, Public Works Director and General Manager/Utilities Director of the City’s subsidiary, Carlsbad Municipal Water District. Further, he functioned as lead negotiator with Poseidon Resources and the San Diego County Water Authority for the Carlsbad Desalination Project. More recently, Mr. Pruim worked for the City of Encinitas and San Dieguito Water District as Public Works Director/General Manager, where he concurrently held titles of: City Engineer, Public Works Director, San Dieguito Water District General Manager, Encinitas Sanitary District General Manager and Cardiff Sanitation District General Manager.

“We are excited to have Glenn join us,” said Vallecitos Board President, Mike Sannella. “After a nationwide search we selected the ideal candidate: a General Manager with skills in drinking water, desalinated water, recycled water and wastewater collection—and also one who knows and understands California’s water woes as well as the local North County community.”

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to join Vallecitos as the General Manager. In my previous positions with Carlsbad and Encinitas, I have worked side by side with Vallecitos on water and wastewater issues and have always been impressed by their leadership and professionalism. I’ve also been a Vallecitos’ customer for the past 14 years and have received excellent service.”

Glenn Pruim and his wife Jeanne live in San Marcos. They are parents to five sons. Mr. Pruim officially started his new duties on November 21, 2016

Preview: Vista Panthers vs. San Marcos Knights Posted: By Ashley Washburn Week 13 of The Prep Pigskin Report showcases you a quarterfinal Division 1 match-up between #12 seed Vista High School (4-7) and #4 seed San Marcos High School (6-4).

 

 

T

he Vista Panthers have a lot of momentum on their side this week after coming off a huge upset last Friday night against Ramona High School. The Red and Black stunned the #5 seed in a 23-11 victory, cutting the Bulldogs season earlier than expected.

 

 

San Marcos on the other hand had an extra week of preparation for this game, due to receiving the #4 seed and scoring a bye during the first round of playoffs. The Knights took this extra week of practice to get the rest of their team healthy and ready for playoffs.

San Marcos OK’s 189-home project – The San Diego Union-Tribune

Highlands Project

Highlands Project

A controversial bid to build 189 houses in the foothills of northern San Marcos won approval this week from the San Marcos City Council, but critics have vowed to keep fighting the project, saying it’s too much development for the untouched land. The so-called San Marcos Highlands community — approved by the council in a 4-1 vote Tuesday —  is planned for a nearly 300-acre property at the northern end of Las Posas Road. Homes would be built on 50 acres, and the rest of the property would be set aside as permanent open space. About half the land is within the city limits and the other half is in the county’s unincorporated area.
