If you have any questions regarding the event or would like additional information, please feel free to contact your Community Director, Liz McCardle, at (760) 798-9015 or by email at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com.

No guests will be permitted. No pets are permitted.

Important! You must submit plans prior to making improvements

The Association has observed an increase in owners modifying their front yards without obtaining prior approval. With the current climate and drought conditions, we understand that owners are motivated to quickly throw in rock or decomposed granite along with small succulents. However, this is not always the best solution for the community as a whole. The Board of Directors has agreed to strictly enforce these infractions, and are in discussions on a fine policy to address these matters.

Please remember the following:
• Changes to homes and landscaping require architectural approval. Any change to your landscaping or home must be approved by the San Elijo Hills Architectural Committee (AC) prior to the commencement of work. The AC meets every month on the 2nd Wednesday. The Application and plans should be submitted well in advance of this meeting.
• Homeowners are responsible for maintaining their yards all year long. Please remember to keep yards trimmed, edged, and planter beds clean. Homeowners should pull weeds, trim bushes, mulch planters, remove and replace any dead vegetation, and generally clean landscaped areas regularly.
• Inspect fences, doors, shutters, etc. on an annual basis and paint as needed. A number of homes in San Elijo Hills are in need of some tender loving care. Garage doors, front doors, shutters, wood siding, and trim should be painted every few years or as needed. In addition, all wooden fences should be inspected annually and either stained or painted. If your home is over 10 years old, it may be time to consider repainting the home as a whole.

Trails Committee

Do you enjoy hiking, biking or strolling any of the 18 miles of trails in San Elijo Hills? Are you looking for a way to become more involved in the community? If you answered “yes” to both of these questions then you may be perfectly suited to serve on the Trails Committee! The Committee is dedicated to keeping our trails safe and beautiful. If you are interested, please contact Liz McCardle at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com for more information.

Spooky Movie in the Town Square & Costume Contest!

There’s Mischief Brewing in the Hills! The world’s only hotel for monsters is now open for humans, so hurry up – if you dare! Join us on Friday, October 26th for a free showing of Hotel Transylvania in the Town Square! A Fangtastic DJ will play Halloween hits–you will be sure to have a Howlin’ good time. Dress up the whole family for our costume contest! Only friendly ghosts and goblins welcome. There will be 5 categories: Up to 5 years old, 6 to 12 years, 12-17 years, 18+ (that’s you mom and dad) and friendly on-leash pets! It will be so cute it’s scary! The music and costume contest will begin at 6 pm, and the movie will start at approximately 7 pm. Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating. The San Elijo Hills Foundation will provide a few food trucks with a variety of food & refreshments for purchase. Please contact Liz McCardle with any questions at ehdirector@waltersmanagement.com.

Turkey Classic

Save the Date! The 16th Annual Neighborhood Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, November 24th.  The San Elijo Hills Foundation is starting to plan this year’s Turkey Classic Golf Tournament and is looking for volunteers and event sponsors. If you would like to get involved, please contact sehfoundation@gmail.com.

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 has 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.

Dogs in the Hills

Please pick up after your pets and remind your children to do so as well if they are responsible for the dog-walking duties. Pet waste is probably the #1 complaint amongst our residents so please be diligent and keep San Elijo Hills looking and smelling beautiful!

We continue to receive reports of dogs off leashes in various neighborhoods. Pet owners shall at no times allow pets to run unrestrained in common areas, streets, sidewalks or pathway areas and shall at all times have full and complete control over the animal. Please remember there is a $250 fine from the county (San Diego County Code Sec. 63.0102(b)(2)) for unrestrained pets. If you witness a dog off-leash, you may report the incident to the Association specifying the owner’s address along with the information on the date and time. You may also contact Animal Control through the City of San Marcos. Below is information from the City’s website:

Animal-related concerns can be reported by email at investigations@sdhumane.org or by phone: for noise complaints dial 619-279-5057 and for all other animal-related issues 619-243-3466. Issues related to disturbance of the peace (after regular hours) are handled by the Sheriff’s Office; they can be contacted on the non-emergency dispatch line at 760-510-5200.  The San Diego Humane Society provides animal control services for the City of San Marcos. Services include: dog licensing, housing lost and stray animals, reuniting lost animals with their owners, microchipping, animal adoptions, educational programs, and investigating citizen concerns and complaints about animals.  The Humane Society is located in Escondido at 3450 East Valley Parkway.

Movie Night August 7th

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Annie (rated PG http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1823664/parentalguide?ref_=tt_stry_pg) as part 3 of our summer movie series!

Annie will be shown on Friday, August 7th at the upper sports field (Hilltop Field) of San Elijo Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall, jousting, and obstacle course!) will begin at 6:00PM and the movie will start at sunset (around 8:00PM). Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating! A flashlight may come in handy too!

A few food trucks will be there, and will have a variety of food (including yummy pizza!), & refreshments for purchase. A portion of the food truck proceeds benefit the San Elijo Hills Foundation.

Annie is a Broadway classic that has delighted audiences for generations comes to the big screen with a new, contemporary vision in Columbia Pictures’ comedy, Annie. Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.

Community Reminders

Summer is the optimal time for painting your home! Now is the time to consider painting-whether it be that faded garage door, shutters, siding, or just the trim! If you are looking at changing the color, please submit the necessary plans and application for review and approval by the Architectural Committee.

Keep our yards looking their best! During the on-going drought and reduced watering times, owners must continue to maintain their yard areas by mowing, weeding, trimming, and pruning.

Did you know that there are many great alternatives to grass? Why not consider gardening with native plants. You can bring the beauty of California into your own landscaping while also receiving numerous benefits. There are flowers, grasses, shrubs, vines, and trees for any situation. If you are interested in modifying your current design, you must submit the necessary application and plans for review and approval by the Architectural Committee. Questions? Please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-9015.

During the summer months when the kiddos are out and about, please remember to encourage them to stay out of the streets and to be considerate to the surrounding homes with respect to noise and play equipment.

San Elijo Hills Foundation Pace Car Campaign

The PACE Car Campaign was originally triggered by a long-time resident of San Elijo Hills. Her idea stemmed from the concept of PACE Cars and how they help set the pace during a race.

-What if every resident was driving the speed limit in SEH?
-How would that affect the pace of traffic through the community?
-Can we as residents help set the pace in SEH?

Let’s find out! By building on this PACE Car concept & getting residents to commit to being vigilant about the traffic limits around our community, we believe, together, we can create a culture of safety in SEH.

Anyone who lives in SEH is encouraged to TAKE THE PACE PLEDGE. In exchange for your pledge, the SEH Foundation will provide you with a special SEH PACE Car sticker for your car window. Not only will seeing this sticker remind you to drive the speed limit, it will also serve as a moving billboard that reminds others around you to consider doing the same.

To take the pledge, please visit the SEH Foundation Website: http://sanelijohillsfoundation.weebly.com/pace-car-campaign.html. You may also visit the San Elijo Hills Foundation Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SanElijoHillsFoundation

  • The San Elijo Hills Community Association supports the individual action by community members to address issues that affect us all, however, as a reminder, the streets within the community are public and under the purview of the City of San Marcos. The Association has no direct enforcement ability with regard to speeding, parking, or other traffic related concerns”

Water Restrictions Effective June 1st

On May 20, 2015, Vallecitos’ Board of Directors adopted emergency drought restrictions under Ordinance 195 that limits all outdoor irrigation, excluding certified agricultural or commercial growers, during the months of June through October to 2 unassigned days per week/8 minutes per station. If demands are not reduced by 24%, additional enforcement may be needed and the District may need to reduce watering to 1 assigned day per week.

Please remember to keep your yard weed free and maintained to ensure our community continues to look its best!

Committee Members Needed

Do you enjoy hiking, biking or strolling any of the 18 miles of trails in San Elijo Hills? Are you looking for a way to become more involved in the community? If you answered “yes” to both of these questions then you may be perfectly suited to serve on the Trails Committee! The Committee is dedicated to keeping our trails safe and beautiful. If you are interested, please contact Rebecca McDonald at mcdonald@waltersmanagement.com for more information.

San Elio Hills Community Association (HOA) – Water Restrictions & San Elijo Hills

San Elijo Hills

Dear Residents,

As you are aware, California is experiencing a significant drought. The drought is not only impacting the water supplies to residential locations but to the vast industry throughout the state. The purpose of this communication is to share with you the impact on the San Elijo Hills community and to discuss the ways we can work together to ensure San Elijo Hills supports our agencies and neighbors through conservation efforts.

Mandatory Water Conservation Regulations

On April 1, 2015, Governor Brown ordered the State Water Resources Control Board to implement reductions that will cut usage by 25%. As a result, the Vallecitos Water District raised its drought restrictions to Level 2. For a complete list of conservation actions, please visit www.vwd.org. We have also posted the drought restriction information (published by Vallecitos) on the Community Network at www.sanelijohillsnet.

Mandatory conservation actions related to landscape and irrigation include:

• Residential and commercial landscape irrigation is limited to no more than one day per week from November to May (no more than three days per week June through October).
• Irrigation is limited to no more than ten minutes per watering station. Systems using new water-efficient devices are excluded to this time constraint).
• Irrigation may only occur between 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.
• All water leaks must be repaired within 72 hours of notification by the water district.
• Outdoor watering is prohibited during and up to 48 hours after a rain event.
• Stop operation of ornamental fountains unless reticulating water is used.
• Prevent waste water associated with inefficient landscaping as well as flows onto non-targeted areas.

These regulations include both residential landscaping as well as the common areas, parks, etc. throughout the community. The San Elijo Hills Community Association is cooperating with the restrictions and has cut back irrigation accordingly. Please note: there are locations throughout the community with water efficient devices. These areas will operate with different run times to ensure the plants receive the appropriate level of irrigation within the restricted time frames. The Board is also continuing to look at areas where irrigation conversion is appropriate (switching from spray heads to drip tubing), and we will implement upgrades to the system throughout the year.

Maintenance Requirements

We understand the water restrictions will impact the health of plant material. The Association will continue to maintain its landscaped areas through regular weeding, mowing, edging and removal of dead material. Owners are expected to do the same. Therefore, please continue to maintain your yards. Owners should remove dead plant material and keep areas neat and tidy but weeding, mulching, trimming, etc.

Landscape Renovation Options

There are many options available to owners wishing to upgrade their landscaping and introduce drought tolerant themes. The Community Design Standards spell out a number of approved low water use plants from front yards. This list is NOT all inclusive but is an excellent starting point for residents. The Standards also include details on plant coverage and the use of rock in landscaping. Owners who wish to upgrade the landscaping on their properties must obtain approval from the San Elijo Hills Architectural Committee prior to installation. The regulations, explanation of process and application can be found on the Community Network at www.sanelijohills.net. Please contact Liz McCardle at lmccardle@waltersmanagement.com with questions.

Other Important Items to Note

The recent changes to the drought regulations will impact the Questhaven Park renovation project. The second part of the project was scheduled to begin on April 27. This project is on hold until the drought alter is reduced. Unfortunately, the new turf installed in the first phase of the project will be impacted. Please, please, please take care of the new grass area by reducing usage as much as possible. Wear appropriate shoes, use different areas to avoid wearing down the middle section, and avoid using the new grass for organized sports as much as possible.

In addition, while it uses recirculating water and is excluded from the ordinance, the fountain located in the town square will be turned off. The goal is to send a message that the community is sensitive to the water restrictions and will reduce opportunities for water loss and evaporation as much as possible. Please take a moment to talk with your children about the fountain and ask them to refrain from playing in the structure or vandalizing the area. The cost to repair assets from vandalism directly impacts our HOA dues.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and efforts to work together during this challenging time.

Regards,

Board of Directors
San Elijo Hills Community Association
