Trails Clean-Up Day

The California Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) is back! The San Elijo Hills trails system is a designated California Coastal Clean-up Day (CCD) area, and we need volunteers!

The trail system within San Elijo Hills is such a beloved feature of our community! Please join us on Saturday, April 21st from 9:00AM-12:00PM to help clean up the trails! Volunteers will meet in the Town Square (by the fountain) of San Elijo Hills at 9:00AM. Walk-ups are welcome but pre-registration helps us with site logistics, so if you know for sure you want to help, please register online in advance. To register beginning April 1st, simply go to www.creektobay.org and then look for San Marcos – San Elijo Trails under the Cleanup Sites link. Special Instructions: All volunteers should wear comfortable closed toed shoes and sun protection. You can help reduce waste by bringing your own reusable water bottle, and gardening or work gloves. Note: every participant in CCD needs to sign a waiver; anyone under the age of 18 needs a parent or guardian signature to participate! Students are eligible for community service hours, and prizes will be given out for the most trash collected!

Together we can all make a difference!

A more challenging seven-mile hike will explore the trails that lead to Double Peak Park.

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.
For further information: Tim Minjares, (760)585-6889 or (760)471-5098. Mail@jonvilleteam.com tim@timminjares.comwww.SEHgaragesale.com.

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.

Community Garden Lottery

It is time for our annual community garden lottery! Grow your own flowers, vegetables and herbs!

Plots will be available from 4.1.17– 3.31.18. The cost of a yearly lease is $50.00 plus a $25.00 key deposit (pre-paid).

All existing lessees must reapply for the lottery. If you would like to participate in the lottery to lease a space in one of the community gardens, please submit your application to the onsite office no later than 3.14.17.

For more information please call 760-798-9015 or email sehstaff@waltersmanagement.com.

Paint Policy

It’s always a great time to paint your home! Many of the homes are reaching that age for a fresh coat of paint. The first indication we typically see are on wood elements such as shutters, garage doors, fascia, etc. However, we also have stucco fading and staining.

Homeowners request to either paint the original colors or change to a new color scheme. The original colors we have on file are provided by the Builder and often outdated or incomplete. Some neighborhoods we have no corresponding information on which home each scheme applies to.

In an effort to simplify the process and assist homeowners in making successful requests, the Association connected with Dunn Edwards who have created color matches to the original colors for each neighborhood.

The Board of Directors recently met and approved the color books along with a new paint policy.

If you are painting any portion of the home, approval is required. Even if it is to another scheme in your neighborhood or the original color.

There are no “pre-approved” list of schemes for any neighborhoods, however, we may have the color match to the existing color scheme provided by the prospective builders for each neighborhood.

If you are planning on painting, please provide the Home Improvement Application, paint samples identifying the specific locations they will be applied, and a photo of your home. The Architectural Committee considers the existing color themes of the neighborhoods and how the new colors are consistent to the existing schemes.

If you have any questions, please email sehstaff@waltersmanagement.com or call 760-798-9015.

San Elijo Hills Onsite Office

Liz McCardle is currently on maternity leave. The office will remain open during this time. For any questions involving community events or architectural matters, please continue to call the onsite office at 760-798-9015 or email at sehstaff@waltersmanagement.com.

Should you need to submit a work order request, have questions regarding your account, enforcement matters or any other management related matters, please contact Becca Warrillow at 760-431-2522 or by email (bwarrillow@waltersmanagement.com).

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.

Lost and Found Box at Questhaven Park

A shout out to Girl Scout Troop 4495! The local Girl Scout Troop came to the Board of Directors with an amazing idea on how to achieve the Bronze Award with a great project-organizing and implementing a lost and found box at Questhaven Park! With a little help from the HOA, it all came together, and the box is installed and ready for use. Troop 4495 will be emptying the box monthly and donating unclaimed items. Way to go Troop 4495!

Community Garden Lottery

It is time for our annual community garden lottery! Participating in the garden is a great way to grow your own flowers, vegetables and herbs! Planter boxes will be available from April 1, 2015– March 31, 2016. The cost of a yearly lease is $50.00 plus a $25.00 key deposit and must be pre-paid. All existing lessees must reapply for the lottery. Current users who are not reselected in this year’s lottery must vacate their planter boxes no later than April 1st, 2015. If you would like to participate in the lottery to lease a space in one of the community gardens, please submit your application to Ted Tuleck no later than Friday, March 27th.

Questhaven Park Maintenance Closures

Please be advised that we will be repairing the turf in the Questhaven Park over the next two months. This is an extensive project that will be completed in two phases in order to allow you to continue to use portions of the park during the renovation. The renovations will not impact your use of the playground.

The project will begin on March 16. A portion of the grass area will be closed so that we may remove the damaged areas and re-sod and re-seed the turf. We will be starting with the south side of the park. Once this area is completed, it will be reopened and we will close the north side of the park. Each section will be closed for up to six weeks. Please follow are signage and do not use the areas that are closed. If residents do not follow the signs and use areas before they are re-opened, we may need to extend the project.

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. Please limit your 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.

One-Way Streets in San Elijo Hills

Traffic flow is oftentimes an issue in the community, particularly around the Town Square where many of the streets are one-way. According to the CA DMV website:

Except when a sign is in place prohibiting a turn, a driver, after stopping as required, facing a steady red signal, may turn right, or turn left from a one-way street onto a one-way street. A driver making that turn shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians lawfully within an adjacent crosswalk and to any vehicle that has approached or is approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard to the driver, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way until the driver can proceed with reasonable safety.

For the safety of our residents, please be aware of pedestrians and oncoming traffic and yield the right-of-way!
