Movie in San Elijo Hills Park

Following is a list of important announcements and upcoming events for The San Elijo Hills Community Association (HOA):

Movie Night June 12th

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Disney’s Academy Award winning Big Hero 6 (rated PG) as part of our summer movie series!  From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind “Frozen” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” comes “Big Hero 6,” an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax, a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada. When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6.”

Big Hero 6 will be shown on Friday, June 12th at the upper sports field (Hilltop Field) of San Elijo Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall and more!) 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 few food trucks will be there and will have a variety of food & refreshments for purchase. A portion of the proceeds benefit the San Elijo Hills Foundation.

Water Restrictions Effective June 1st

San Diegans will now be able to only water their yards twice a week as part of the statewide water restrictions that went into effect June 1st. Houses with addresses that end in odd numbers can irrigate on Sunday and Thursday, while those ending in even numbers can water on Wednesday and Saturday. Any watering can now only be done between 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. for a maximum of five minutes per day. Fines for those found wasting water will range anywhere from $100 to $1,000.

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

Please note the following corrections regarding water restrictions:

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.

For more information, please visit the Vallecitos website.

We collected half the trash we did from the September event. We hope this is, in part, due to the awareness these events bring to our trails.

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.

Barking Dogs

Please be considerate of your neighbors in respect to barking and noisy dogs. Please do not leave your dogs unattended, outside for long periods of time.

Disturbing the peace is prohibited under San Marcos code 6.24.140. No person shall own or harbor an animal in such a manner that the peace or quiet of the public is unreasonably disturbed. The keeping or maintenance, or the permitting to be kept or maintained, on any premises owned, occupied or controlled by any person of any animal or fowl which, by any frequent or long continued noise, shall cause unreasonable annoyance or discomfort to any person of normal sensitivity in the vicinity, shall constitute a violation of this section; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be construed to apply to reasonable noises emanating from legally operated veterinary hospitals, humane societies, animal shelters, farm and/or agricultural facilities, or areas where keeping of animals or fowls are permitted. Any person who violates any provision of this Section is guilty of a misdemeanor.

Curbing Your Pet
The HOA receives numerous complaints regarding residents failing to curb their dogs in the community. Please not 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). 

Town Center Damage
Unfortunately, the Town Center area has suffered damages as a result of some vandalism. The following damages have recently occurred:

-Benches have been broken.
-Fountain has been filled with soap which required a complete draining and cleaning service.
-Tree limbs have been snapped.

Please remind all members of your household to treat the Town Square with respect. The cost to make these repairs comes from your HOA dues so everyone is financially impacted.
