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.

GOVERNOR ENDS DECLARATION OF DROUGHT

On April 7, 2017, Governor Brown issued Executive Order B-40-17. With this an important change has occurred.

Associations were previously prohibited from enforcement action against homeowners who allowed their yards to “go brown” by not watering it during the declared state of a drought.

Now that the declaration has ended, homeowners are requested to take immediate steps to restore the look of their yards, by either replacing the turf grass or submitting a request for improvements to change to a drought tolerant landscape; or submitting an application for approval for artificial turf, in conformance with the minimum requirements adopted by the Association.

For copies of the current architectural guidelines, including the artificial turf policy, please contact Interim Community Director, Rashell DeYoung at sehstaff@waltersmanagement.com.

Community Reminders

 It has come to our attention that people are riding dirt bikes throughout our beautiful trails in San Elijo Hills. Motorized Dirt Bikes ARE NOT allowed on the trails! http://www.san-marcos.net/Home/ShowDocument?id=1474. There are a variety of public lands in California that are open to managed OHV recreation. Check with your local land management agency regarding legal riding areas and local regulations. There are many privately owned and operated motocross tracks throughout the state. A list of riding opportunities on public lands can be located at http://www.ohv.parks.ca.gov/ .Thank you for your cooperation.

 The HOA receives numerous complaints regarding residents failing to curb their dogs in the community. Please note that it is county ordinance that you must curb your pet. It is a public offense for any person to allow a dog in his or her custody to defecate or to urinate on any property other than that of the owner or person having control of the dog. Persons having control of a dog are required to restrain or control the animal so that it urinates or defecates only in the street gutters, and to immediately remove any feces to a proper receptacle (SDCC Section 62.670).

 Please remember to trim any trees growing over the sidewalks or dropping seeds or leaves. They can create unsafe conditions for people and pets. We appreciate your efforts in keeping the sidewalks and streets looking great!

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.

San Elijo Hills Association Board of Directors Meeting

The next Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 6:00 pm at the San Elijo Hills REC Center (1105 Elfin Forest Rd., San Marcos, CA 92078).

Questhaven Park

While turf repair is a normal part of maintenance, the rate of deterioration of grass is accelerated when the park is used for commercial purposes or when residents heavily use the grass when it is wet. The Association will close off sections of the park when it rains until the grass is dry.

Groups have continued to use the field on these closed areas.

Please refrain from use of the turf areas when the grass is wet, and please report commercial use to Walters Management. If you are able to provide us with the business contact information, we will be happy to follow-up with the commercial entity in order to protect our parks while suggesting alternatives within the city for their use.

The goal is not to take away opportunities for residents to stay active within the community—we simply want to ensure our parks are readily available for use and enjoyed by all residents without excessive damage and unnecessary closures.

The Board of Directors feels strongly that we must continue to work together to ensure that San Elijo Hills is well maintained and continues to be a premier community in North County. Thank you for your cooperation and for doing your part to help maintain our community.

Celebration of Life for Chris Vulovic

Charity will be holding a Celebration of Life for Chris Vulovic (the co-owner) on Feb 26, 2017 from 3:00 – 6:30 pm at Cafe Stoked. Charity (owner and sister of Chris) is opening up the Celebration of Life to community members to attend.
