2017 in the Hills!

2017 was a busy year for San Elijo Hills! We enjoyed Community Association events such as BunnyPalooza, Movies in the Park, Oktoberfest, block party, our recent tree lighting, 1st annual menorah lighting and even made the news for our foam party!

The Board of Directors completed various tasks including improvements and landscape upgrades throughout the community. Here are a just a few highlights of what has been achieved!

 The gazebo in the town square was repaired and expanded to provide more shade over the table area.
 The entry water feature was enhanced by adding vegetation creating a more colorful and diverse palette. And there is more to come! In conjunction with this upgrade, the Board has also been focusing on the monument area and signage. The Board is actively pursuing proposals to modify the signage and incorporate additional water elements into the design.
 Maintenance areas were audited with the landscape company and some discrepancies were found which resulted in a credit back to the Association and reduced maintenance costs going forward.
 A Consulting Arborist was hired to review the overall tree inventory and provide an accurate assessment of all our trees.

Thank you to Board members Elliot Herman, Laura Fratilla, Katherine Bond, Bill Jacoby and Halé Richardson for all you do! We would like to recognize outgoing Board Member George “Bill” Jacoby for his last 3 years serving on the Board! We appreciate your hard work and dedication to your community!

A shout out to other volunteers such as the Architectural Committee and Trails Committee who had an outstanding year and put in countless hours volunteering their time.

Short Term Rentals

We have received an increase in concerns regarding short term rentals such as on Airbnb. Pursuant to section 8.2 Rental of Dwelling in the Association’s governing documents, No owner may lease such Owner’s Lot or improvement thereon for hotel, motel or transient purposes. Any lease which is either for a period of fewer than 30 days or pursuant to which the lessor provides any services normally associated with a hotel shall be deemed to be for transient purposes. Please be respectful of your neighborhood and refrain from participating. The Association does periodically verify on these sites and action will be taken accordingly.

We appreciate your efforts!
