May 2017 San Elijo Hills Community Association – HOA Updates

May 2017 San Elijo Hills Community Association HOA Updates:

Movie in the Park-Part I

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (rated PG) as part of our summer movie series Friday June 9th at the lower softball field of San Elijo Hills Park!

The year is 1936. An archeology professor named Indiana Jones is venturing in the jungles of South America searching for a golden statue. Unfortunately, he sets off a deadly trap but miraculously escapes. Then, Jones hears from a museum curator named Marcus Brody about a biblical artifact called The Ark of the Covenant, which can hold the key to humanly existence. Jones has to venture to vast places such as Nepal and Egypt to find this artifact. However, he will have to fight his enemy Rene Belloq and a band of Nazis in order to reach it.

For our younger audiences, we will be showing a 30 minute compilation of Looney Tunes prior to the main feature!

Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall and more!) will begin at 6:00PM and the Looney Tunes will start after sunset (around 8:30PM) with the main feature beginning at approximately 9:00 PM.

Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating.

This year we will provide free popcorn! The San Elijo Hills Foundation will provide food trucks and will have a variety of food & refreshments for purchase.

For more information, please e-mail: sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or call (760) 798-9015.

Come join us in the town square park for a foam party! Dr. Bronner’s Foam truck will be coming out on Wednesday June 21, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. for a free foam party! The foam is biodegradable and made simply from organic soap, water and compressed air. Take the family down for music, foam, and fun! Bring your towels, bathing suits and goggles or come as you are!

A Fresh Coat for a Fresh Start

How closely have you look at your homes paint lately? Many homes in the community are beginning to show their age with faded, discolored, and peeling paint facades and fences. It is important to keep your home looking its best by having those areas power-washed and painted on a regular basis.

Did you know we now have paint color booklets for each neighborhood? With current palettes and some suggested palettes, you can refresh your homes look by visiting the onsite office for ideas. All painting requires the submission of an application and approval by the Architectural Committee. But it’s an easy process and we would love to assist you through it!

Interested in a group discount? With enough committed residents, the HOA can facilitate group discounts with reputable paint companies. Please email us at sehstaff@waltersmanagement.com to get on the interest list. Let us know what you are interested in painting (i.e. whole house, trim/shutters/doors only, fence only, etc.).

Save the Date: Summer BBQ and Concert – July 1, 2017!

Come down and celebrate our summer spectacular! This all American themed carnival will entertain our residents of all ages with music, carnival games, prize booth with tons of prizes, obstacle course, bounce houses, zip line, rock wall, and much more!

Document your experience with a keepsake, and visit our photo booth! If you are hungry during all that fun, fill up on BBQ chicken, BBQ pulled pork, hot dogs, salad, fruit and other yummy classics!

Featuring The Mighty Untouchables!! Bring your chairs, blankets, sit back and enjoy the concert!

There is no need to go anywhere when you can hang out in your own neighborhood and celebrate the Holiday weekend San Elijo Hills style! This event will take place on Saturday July 1, 2017 at 5 pm to 9 pm at the upper softball field of San Elijo Hills Park!

Please remember to bring proof of residency to gain entrance into the event (i.e.: driver’s license with on-site address, utility bill, HOA statement, etc.). Unfortunately, we will not be able to allow you to enter the event without verifying residency. No guests will be permitted.

The Jonville Team 12th Annual Community Garage Sale and Charity Event

May 20th, 2017. 7:00am – 11:00am held at the San Elijo Hills and Old Creek Ranch located at 1501 San Elijo Rd South #101, San Marcos, CA 92078.

This annual event, produced by the Jonville Team – the area real estate experts in North County- is designed to utilize a community-wide garage sale and spring cleaning fever to raise money for local charities. Last year, over 120 homes in the communities of San Elijo Hills and Old Creek Ranch participated in the garage sale for a small $10.00 donation fee, with 100% of the proceeds going to local charities. This year, all the proceeds from participating homes will go to Straight from the Heart- Helping Foster Children across the County and Casa De Amparo: a local charity recognized as a leader in treating and preventing child abuse and neglect in San Diego County and beyond, with locations in Oceanside and San Marcos. The non-profit organization annually serves over 1,000 Casa Kids, from prenatal to 25 years old, as well as over 700 families, through six integrated programs that promote healing, growth, and healthy relationships.

In addition to the event charities, every year many neighbors join forces and combine their garage sale items to raise money for their own causes – raising funds for sports teams and their own social causes, for example. The fundraising isn’t confined to just garage sale items, a handful of bake sales can also be found throughout the community to feed hungry shoppers.

It is an ideal event to find fantastic bargains and unique items in one location. Shoppers can pick up a map of participating homes in designated spots around San Elijo Hills the day of the event.

The deadline to sign up is May 17.

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.net for your convenience. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

The next Executive Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 23, 2017, 6:00 pm at the on-site office in San Elijo Hills (1277 San Elijo Rd S, San Marcos, CA 92078).

Graduation season in San Marcos

Graduation season in San Marcos

Expect traffic delays expected for the next two weekends

San Marcos, CA— Springtime in North County’s education hub means one thing—San Marcos students are getting ready to graduate.

With Cal State San Marcos hosting commencement ceremonies Friday, May 19 and Saturday, May 20 and Palomar hosting commencement on Friday, May 26, I-15 and SR-78 travelers can expect increased traffic delays around the college areas.

While the increase in traffic congestion is familiar to city residents, students and commuters alike, the City of San Marcos is pleased to report that continued relief is on the way.

In the city’s ongoing efforts to get motorists moving and improve traffic flow, several roadway improvement projects are lined up over the next five years.

Planned projects include upgrades to the Traffic Management Center (TMC)’s server and software, traffic signal equipment, as well as communication lines between the TMC and the traffic signals. In addition to improved staff and equipment response times to changing traffic conditions, these enhancements will allow traffic signals to handle more complex intersection configuration conditions.

During graduation season and periods of roadway construction, drive with caution and provide ample time to reach your destination safely and on time.

For more information about Palomar College commencement, visit www2.palomar.edu. To see Cal State San Marcos’ commencement schedule, visit www.csusm.edu/commencement.
