Summer 2016 San Elijo Hills Community Association – HOA updates

IMG_0409

Please see below for the most recent San Elijo Hills Community Association (HOA) updates:

Movie In the Park- Last Movie of the Summer

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Sony Pictures Hotel Transylvania 2 (rated PG) as part of our summer movie series!

Now that Dracula (Adam Sandler) has opened the Hotel Transylvania’s doors to humans, things are changing for the better; however, Drac is secretly worried that his half-human grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing his vampire side. So, while Mavis and Johnny are away, Drac enlists his friends to help him put the boy through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But things really get batty when Drac’s cantankerous, old-school dad (Mel Brooks) pays an unexpected visit.

Hotel Transylvania 2 will be shown on Friday, August 5th at the lower softball field of San Elijo Hills Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall and more!) will begin at 6:00PM and the movie will start at sunset (around 8:15PM). Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating! A few food trucks will be there and will have a variety of food & refreshments for purchase.

Contact Liz McCardle with any questions at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or call (760) 798-9015.

Vallecitos Water District Ends Restrictions On Outdoor Watering

The Vallecitos Water District’s Board of Directors recently voted to rescind the mandatory drought restrictions under its “Level 2 Drought Alert” and move to voluntary conservation measures under its “Level 1 Drought Watch,” thereby ending restrictions on outdoor watering. Vallecitos customers may now irrigate any day of the week with no limit on the number of watering days, and may irrigate their landscapes as long as necessary. However, the Board expressed their desire to sustain water conservation as a permanent way of life and adopted a new ordinance permanently prohibiting wasteful practices, such as:

• Visible signs of runoff when watering landscapes
• Watering between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
• Watering within 48 hours of a measurable rain event
• Hosing down hardscapes (patios, sidewalks, etc.)
• Not using a shut-off nozzle when washing cars
• Not fixing leaks within 48 hours of discovery

The District’s action was taken in response to the State Water Resources Control Board recently terminating water use reduction mandates and allowing water agencies to set their own water use targets based upon their specific supply conditions. Recognizing persistent yet less severe drought conditions throughout California, the newly adopted emergency regulation, which is in effect through January 2017, mandates that urban water suppliers act to ensure at least a three year supply of water to their customers under drought conditions.  A thorough analysis determined that Vallecitos has sufficient water supplies for its customers, even if drought conditions continue for the next three years; therefore, the District won’t be subject to state-mandated water-use reductions through January 2017. This is due largely to its customers who saved 25 percent since June 2015 and the fact that Vallecitos now receives a portion of its water directly from the Carlsbad Desalination Plant, which is a local, drought-resilient supply. “Due to the exceptional conservation efforts by our customers and the foresight of the District to secure desalinated seawater, we are now able to give our customers greater flexibility when it comes to keeping trees, plants and vegetation alive,” said Vallecitos Board President, Mike Sannella. “We applaud our customers’ efforts and encourage them to continue to use water efficiently at all times.”

For more detailed information on the new permanent prohibitions, go to www.vwd.org/drought.

Entry Feature Landscape Renovation

If you have driven through our entrance, you probably noticed the various flags and drying vegetation. This was intentional and for a great reason….a fresh new look!

The Board of Directors recently approved a proposal from O’Connell Landscape to enhance the entry area by opening visibility to the water feature and providing a diverse environment of colorful plants, ground covers, and accents. A rendering will be available soon to homeowners who are interested in seeing the design. Stay tuned!

For more information, feel free to contact Liz McCardle at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or call (760) 798-9015.

Next Board of Directors Meeting: August 29, 2016

The next Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for 8/29/16, 6:00 pm at a different (temporary) location.

City of San Marcos Community Center
3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069 (Dining Room)

See you there!

Artificial Turf Policy

On September 14, 2015 AB 349 was approved by the Governor, and set forth a mandate which prevented homeowners associations from disallowing the use of artificial turf in their communities.
The San Elijo Hills Board conducted a thorough review of the requirements of the law and created the Artificial Turf Guidelines. In accordance with California Civil Code 1357.130, homeowners were provided a copy of the proposed policy for review and comment period.
On June 21, 2016, the Board of Directors met to review all comments made either in-person or in-writing. After careful consideration, the Board adopted the policy with minor changes. A copy of the approved policy will be available to homeowners through the Association’s websites or you may request an electronic copy from Walters Management.
Here are some important highlights!

• Quality product that includes minimum 10 year warranty, 100% recyclable and made in USA.
• Installed in accordance with requirements. Refer to section (C) “Installation”
• Maintained professionally with evidence of service contracts upon request.
• Replaced in its entirety when the color has faded.
• The guidelines allow up to 50% of the landscape area in the front of your house to be artificial turf with restrictions. Side and rear yards are unlimited. Turf cannot directly attach to your front sidewalk. A buffer is needed to soften the look and to make it appear natural.
• The turf has to be of high quality and installed correctly. There are specific requirements for the base, turf, installation and warranty requirements. No rubber fill can be used. Artificial turf that loses 20% of its original color must be replaced in entirety.

The Board of Directors will delegate the review duties for artificial turf to an outside consultant. This decision was made so that a qualified professional is able to review the technical components and installation methods.

The anticipated cost will be $100 payable to the San Elijo Hills Community Association. This would cover the cost to review the information and inspection after installation. As with any changes to the exterior of the home, including artificial turf, plans must be approved by the San Elijo Hills Community Association. If you wish to make changes, please contact Liz McCardle at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or (760) 798-9015 for assistance.

Community Reminders

Clear and visible address numbers are important when it comes to safety. Please check your address numbers and replace any faded or missing numbers. This is a safety concern, which could potentially delay first responders in an emergency response.
It also impacts the general aesthetics of the community and is part of the required maintenance per the Governing Documents.

Paint or stain your fences. Fences should be stained or painted to match the house trim. No red or artificial colors, please. Protect the integrity of your fence while enhancing the look of your home!

Lane closures scheduled along Twin Oaks Valley Road

Beginning Monday, July 18, multiple lane closures have been scheduled along S. Twin Oaks Valley Rd. from Village Drive to Double Peak School. Traffic may be affected Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm in order to accommodate construction of a potable water line for the new Rancho Coronado housing development.

All lane closures are expected to be lifted by Friday, August 5. Delays in the schedule may occur due to inclement weather conditions or other unforeseen conditions.

Although two-way traffic will be maintained along S. Twin Oaks Valley Rd, motorists can expect intermittent detours at S. Village Drive. Flaggers may be posted to help facilitate traffic flow.

Traffic delays are anticipated and motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes or leave early to get to destinations on time.

Resource center to open to help region’s growing senior citizen population

Resource center to open to help region’s growing senior citizen population

Facility is a comprehensive resource dedicated to improving senior citizens’ quality of life

San Marcos, CA – A valuable new resource for senior citizens, their caregivers and families will be available in North County with the opening of The Foundation for Senior Wellbeing’s Information Resource Center. Located at 131 Richmar Avenue in the Panorama Teen and Family Center in San Marcos, the new center will connect seniors to resources in the areas of housing, home repair, transportation, food insecurity, emergency assistance, medical and mental health issues, legal issues and more.

A formal grand opening and ribbon-cutting celebration is planned for Thursday, July 14 at 4 p.m. and will include refreshments, an open house and comments from several regional dignitaries. The celebration is open to the public.

In making the grand opening announcement, the center’s Program Manager Rebecca Steiner stated, “Four out of every 10 seniors in San Diego County are struggling. Our senior population will more than double in the next 15 years – a rate three times faster than the general population – and half of seniors say that isolation is negatively affecting their lives. Additionally, many seniors lack the financial resources to afford housing and other basic needs. The Foundation for Senior Wellbeing is determined to change those statistics, and this new Information Resource Center is a major part of that effort.”

The center will direct callers to available resources and, unlike other referral services, will follow up with clients to ensure their question or issue is resolved to their satisfaction. In order to serve those who do not use computers or social media, this information will also be available by phone or in person and provided by staff or volunteers trained to communicate with seniors using patience and listening skills to research and recommend suitable resources.

For more information, please call Rebecca Steiner at (844) 654-INFO (4636) or visit www.thefoundationforseniorwellbeing.org.

Vallecitos Water District Ends Restrictions On Outdoor Watering

Jonville Team-Update and 9 Fourth of July Fun Facts for your weekend BBQ! 

 

The Jonville Team - 4th of July Fun Facts

Dear Neighbor,
If you’re like us, you’ll be spending this American Holiday with neighbors and friends around the BBQ and waiting for fireworks to light up the sky. Whatever you do, everyone at The Jonville Team wishes you a fun and healthy 4th of July. In the spirit of fun, we’ve provided 9 interesting facts to share with friends and family at the party.

9 Fourth of July Fun Facts to Share at your BBQ…

Liberty Bell Tap. Tap. Tap…
Due to concerns about cracking the iconic instrument, the Liberty Bell has not been rung since 1846
Lap Top Written on a Laptop…
Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on a “laptop,” which was a writing desk that could fit on one’s lap.
Hot Dogs Hot Dogs and more Hot Dogs…
According to TIME magazine, the fourth is the “biggest hot dog holiday of the year,” with Americans reportedly consuming about 155 million of them on Independence Day alone.
Disney The Mouse House…
The Walt Disney Company is said to be the world’s largest consumer of fireworks in the United States. The park also launches the fireworks with compressed air instead of gunpowder to reduce fumes and gain better height and timing.
26 What were you doing at 26?…
The oldest signer of the Declaration of Independence was Benjamin Franklin at 70 years old. The youngest was Edward Rutledge, a lawyer from South Carolina who was only 26 at the time.
Thomas and John New meaning of putting your life into your work...
In a bizarre twist of fate, the two founders of America’s Independence died within hours of each other on July 4th. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on July 4, 1826.
Population Feeling cramped…
The year the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, the estimated number of people living in the newly independent nation was 2.5 million. Today, the population is around 320 million.
National Bird - Turkey? He must have been hungry…
John Adams and Thomas Jefferson are responsible for the bald eagle as the national bird; Benjamin Franklin wanted it to be the turkey.
Party George George Washington would have wanted it this way…
On July 4, 1778 George Washington celebrated the anniversary of our Nation’s Independence by issuing double rations of rum to his soldiers. Cheers!
