What’s brewing at Stumblefoot? | San Diego Reader

Stumblefoot Brewing Company isn’t new — it’s been making beer in southwest San Marcos since 2012. However, it’s not exactly the same company anymore. In January, the business changed hands, when founding owner Bill Randolph sold the brewery outright to Cameron Rentch and Cory Schmelzer.

“We’re both locals,” says Rentch. The two friends live in the nearby community of San Elijo Hills. While he and Schmelzer were born in the same northern Virginia hospital just a year apart, they didn’t meet until seven years ago, when they found themselves living in the same community, with children around the same age, and a shared interest in extreme distance running — and opening a craft brewery.”We were originally hoping to do a new brewery inside San Elijo Hills,” Rentsch goes on to say, though they quickly learned zoning made that impossible. “Right about that same time, after really pushing through that, we found out that Bill might be interested in exiting. The timing just really worked out for everybody.” READ MORE via Source: What’s brewing at Stumblefoot? | San Diego Reader

Save the Date – 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 few 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.

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.

Filing Complaints

When living in a community association, neighbor relations is an on-going process. If a concern arises, it can be a challenging and uncomfortable situation. Some would like to be anonymous so as to avoid confrontation with the person who is in violation of the rules.

To take action based on an anonymous complaint interferes with a homeowner’s due process rights. If an anonymous complaint cannot be identified, and the Association cannot independently verify the violation, penalties cannot be levied.

We are here to help! The rules and regulations contain a complaint form that you may submit for review by the Association. Upon verification of the infraction, the Association can begin the enforcement process.

If you have questions or would like to obtain a form, please contact Walters Management at 760-431-2522 or access on the Association’s website.

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).

What to do when a snake bites you on a trail?


It’s snake season in San Elijo Hills -Here is some good advice for snake bites 

• No first aid is much better than performing bad first aid. Don’t cut at or around the site of the bite, don’t compress the bitten limb with a cord or tight bandage, don’t attempting to extract or neutralize venom using electricity, fire, permanganate, salt, black stones, mouths, mud, leaves, etc.

• All Snake Bite Kits are dangerous and should not be used. This was also confirmed by the Snake Bite Poison Line.

• A lot of snake bite patients injure themselves by panicking directly after a snake bite, by tripping over a rock or tree trunk, or by falling off the side of the trail. Staying calm is important! After a snake bite, walk about 20-30 feet away from the snake.

• Find a safe place to sit down asap. The venom can rapidly diffuse into your system, this can drop your blood pressure too low to pump all the way to your head while standing. Sitting down reduces your chance of fainting within the first few minutes. If you faint, it shouldn’t be more than a few minutes.

• Remove any rings, watches, tight clothing and anything else from the bitten limb, because the swelling will make it a lot bigger soon.

• Take 5 minutes to calm down and plan your evacuation. The only effective treatment for a snake envenomation is the right anti-venom to neutralize it.

• Do not wait for symptoms to appear if bitten. It’s important to get in touch with emergency personnel as soon as possible to get you to a hospital. If you have a cell phone and service, great, call 911 or the Park Ranger. If there is no service, think about the last time you had phone service.

• A sharpie can be a great help for emergency personnel to assess the severity of your snakebite. Circle the location of your snake bite and write down the time next to it. Draw a circle around the border of the swelling and write down the time. Write down all the things you’re experiencing that are not normal, with the time next to it. Examples are: metallic taste in your mouth, changes to sense of smell, sudden loss of vision, double vision, visual disturbances, ringing in the ears, headache, nausea and vomiting, bleeding from anywhere, dizziness, shortness of breath, etc. The most common signs and symptoms are pain and swelling.

• Update this info every 15 or 30 minutes as the swelling moves up the limb and your symptoms develop.

• Make contact via cell phone. If this is not possible, walk slowly to get help. Drink some water and take some calories if you have any. Some snake bite victims walk several miles after serious snake bites to their legs. They make it out fine because they made it out to medical care. This is much better than waiting for help if you can’t reach anyone. Don’t let the fear of “raising your heart rate and increasing the speed of venom circulation” prevent you from moving to get to care. Be very cautious about driving yourself to a hospital, since some bites have serious side effects that could suddenly limit your ability to drive.

Preventing a snake bite is obviously better than dealing with a snake bite. Here are a few ways to reduce the risks of snake bites while trail running:

• Be aware that there could be snakes where you’re running.

• Watch where you’re placing your feet, be extra aware on rocky, sunny areas, pockets of leaves and logs across the trail. If you’re off trail, the odds go up because there are more rocks and cracks and less people to scare the snakes away. Watch out when running through tall grass and weeds.

• Step on a rock or log, not over it. This way you can spot a snake that may be sheltering under it and take action quickly.

• Watch out when sitting down on a rock or tree stump, you might be sitting on a snake.

• Don’t try to chase the snake off the trail, this is why most people get bit by snakes.

• Don’t run with headphones on trails, or have at least 1 earbud out.

• Snakes tend to be near water, especially if it’s in a dry environment. If you’re near a spring or river, keep an extra eye out.

• Since snakes are cold-blooded, they’d like to come out when it’s warm and sun themselves on rocky areas or trails. They like to be on the edge of a sunny patch. If you come across a sunny patch, your encounter chances increase.

• Most venomous snakes in the US rest during the day. The chances of running into one are higher in the mornings and early evenings, when their activity might be a bit higher.

• In the spring, after snakes have hibernated together, the frequency of sightings goes up. In the fall, when they retreat to a hiding place to spend the cold winter months, they are on the go, so higher chances to encounter a snake. Most snake bites occur between April and October.

San Marcos Creek Specific Plan Update

San Marcos Creek District Specific Plan Update

In case you missed it, the San Marcos Creek Oversight Committee met this week on Monday, April 24  to continue reviewing possible updates to the San Marcos Creek Specific Plan. Meeting materials are now available online at www.san-marcos.net/creekdistrict.

COMMITTEE MEETING AND WORKSHOP MATERIALS
Agenda – April 24, 2017 Framework Principles Presentation
  Retail Market Study Presentation
  Preliminary Conceptual Land Use Alternatives
  Outreach and Engagement Update

About the Specific Plan Update

In 2007, the San Marcos Creek Specific Plan was adopted by City Council and accepted by the community to shape the future of the Creek District into a new downtown area.

Envisioned to pair with the North City (University District) Specific Plan to create a comprehensive downtown in the heart of San Marcos, the 2007 plan included 2,300 dwelling units; more than one million square feet of retail and/or commercial space; 589,000 square feet of office space; a 20-acre park and 74 acres of urban open space.

Beginning in 2015, City Council requested a review of the plan that recognizes a changing economy, new demand for housing options and changing community preferences.  Retail and market realities have changed the dynamic and demand of development in San Marcos since the original Specific Plan was adopted.

Given the loss of redevelopment funds, increase in online marketplaces, and the growth in the San Marcos community over the last ten years, the Creek Specific Plan is being updated to maximize the potential and opportunities of the Creek District while maintaining as much of the original community vision as possible.

Specific Plan Update Process

The Creek Specific Plan will be updated and amended in two phases. The first phase involves updating the vision and land use plan for the Creek District.  The second phase entails amending the technical documents, presentations to the Planning Commission and the City Council, and final adoption anticipated by Summer 2018.

Phase 1, Updating the Vision

Phase 2, Amending the Specific Plan

Stay Informed

Throughout the course of the update there will be multiple ways to get involved and share your feedback:

  • Monthly stakeholder meetings
  • 2 public workshops (dates coming soon)
  • An online survey (under development)
