Open House Signs

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.). We are seeing an increasing number of unapproved signs, signs with balloons, flags, and riders that are directly in conflict with our policy. Here are some highlights:

Approved Open House signage is allowed for use on Saturday’s and Sundays from 1:00 – 4:00 pm only.

No riders, balloons, flags or other attention generating devises may be used with the sign.
Only one sign directing traffic either left or right may be installed at each corner. The first homeowner or agent to reach an intersection on route to their open house will place their sign at the given location. If another homeowner or agent has an open house along the same route, an additional sign is not needed. Homeowners or agents should continue to the next intersection on route to the open house and place their sign as necessary. In many cases, several open houses can be served by the same directional sign.

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.

Reporting Irrigation Leaks

We need your help! The Board has worked diligently in implementing water saving measures by monitoring and repairing irrigation systems and would appreciate the eyes and ears of the residents to assist in reporting broken sprinklers, unnecessary watering or any other potential issues. Let’s work together to reduce costs and conserve this precious resource! To report any leaks, please contact Walters Management at rvaughn@waltersmanagement.com or 760-431-2522.

Free paper shredding event offered in San Marcos on April 14


The City of San Marcos and EDCO Recycling & Waste Collection will host a free paper shredding and electronic waste collection event on Saturday, April 14 from 9 am to noon at Palomar College, 1140 W. Mission Road in San Marcos. The event will take place in student parking lot 14 on Mission Road between Comet Circle and the United Methodist Church.

Shredding and e-waste collection
Participants are limited to two bankers boxes (10” x 12” x 15”) per household. Items that should be shredded include legal documents, medical records, financial statements, accounting records, personnel files, audits, bank statements, tax records, receipts/invoices, canceled checks, business plans and credit card numbers.

Unwanted electronics will also be collected including TVs, computer monitors, printers, fax machines, VCRs, etc. However, no household hazardous waste (HHW) material will be accepted.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, identity theft strikes more than 10 million Americans per year and costs American businesses and consumers more than $53 billion per year — not to mention the serious financial and emotional hardships it leaves in its wake. Shredding sensitive documents with account numbers, birth dates, signatures, passwords and PIN numbers is a great step towards avoiding identity theft.

The event will be set up as a drive-thru and drop-off event. Documents will be shredded onsite. EDCO Recycling & Waste Collection is the contract trash hauler for the City of San Marcos.

For more information, call EDCO at (760) 744-2700.
