Update from The Real Families for San Marcos (Anti Brookfield development group)
Have you all signed the petition for the building of 200+ townhomes past the firehouse…before the new neighborhood of Rancho Tesoro? Despite many residents fighting this during January’s meeting, city council voted for it anyway…not caring about the residents concerns. In order to stop them…we need a referendum – about 6,000 signatures the next couple weeks.
This development will attend Double Peak. Residents want concerns of traffic and overcrowded schools addressed first.
If you haven’t signed, here are some dates:
Upcoming petition hours at Starbucks (on S. Twin Oaks Valley Rd. next to Flippin Pizza)
* Mon, Feb 5, 6-8pm
* Wed, Feb 7, 6-8pm
* Wed, Feb 16, 6-8pm
* Mon, Feb 19, 6-8pm
* Wed, Feb 21, 6-8pm
Must be San Marcos resident and registered voter!
Brookfield has started their own campaign, creating fake accounts and asking for signatures to UNSIGN the petition.

San Marcos Unified is moving forward with an exciting district-wide project to install solar panels at many of our school sites. Tesla (formerly SolarCity) will install, maintain, and operate their solar panel system without any upfront costs to the District. Savings from this initiative will amount to approximately $30 million dollars over our 20-year contract with Tesla.
Each phase of construction is completed in stages of prep work, fencing, drilling, completing the underground electrical, and installation. Starting with Paloma Elementary on October 14, 2017, the prep team will begin working on site. Once the prep work is completed at Paloma, they will move on to the next school in Phase 1, while the drilling team will begin work at Paloma – and so on and so forth. This process will continue until all of the schools in Phase 1 are completed. For visuals on this process, click here.
The phases are as follows:
- PHASE 1: Paloma Elementary, San Elijo Elementary, Woodland Park Middle, and Mission Hills High.
- PHASE 2: Twin Oaks Elementary, Joli Ann Elementary, San Marcos Elementary, and Knob Hill Elementary
- PHASE 3: Discovery Elementary, San Elijo Middle, Double Peak, San Marcos High, and Carrillo Elementary
In addition to working with the Division of State Architects (DSA) to ensure that all applicable rules/regulations are followed, our Facilities and Maintenance team have worked closely with each of our principals to determine the ideal location for the panels. As many of our sites will have solar panels installed in their parking lot, parking will be affected during the 6-12 week construction period. Families will receive a letter from their site prior to any work commencing. You can also check your school’s website for more information on construction dates and parking/drop off adjustments.
For questions or concerns regarding this project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The most unique one day cycling event in the country the Cervélo Belgian Waffle Ride presented by SPY, rolling through North County and San Elijo Hills, Sunday April 24, 2016. A gravel grinder with the perfect mix of dirt and tarmac to keep things interesting.
Known to provide riders with an incredibly memorable day on the bike, the Belgian Waffle Ride will take its riders on a ronde through North County San Diego, where it will clatter through agrarian hamlets and the Ardenne-like hills—not over classic mountains per se, but rather a never ending string of ups and downs—along single track climbs, sandy trails, and roughly paved roads carved through inland San Diego’s beautiful rural and sometimes forested backcountry.
Participants ride drop bar road style bikes not mountain bikes and several San Elijo Hills Residents will participate. Come out and cheer the athletes as they take the trail by the San Elijo Hills City limits sign past the Albertsons, San Elijo Middle, San Elijo Elementary on the Copper Creek trail passing the Brightwood Drive Cul-de-sac on The Garden View trail riders will return to the paved road at Queshaven Park and start the steep accent towards the summet of Double Peak Park. Riders will be passing through San Elijo Hills trails and roads at the 134 mile mark so give them a cheer, they will need it!
The ride offers two challenging routes in two different distances, the full BWR course will cover 144 miles, 11,000 ft. of vertical.
The second route, the Cervélo Belgian Wafer Ride, tops out at 68 miles and takes riders up and down a shortened course, while still including a few of the BWR’s most famous dirt sections and iconic climbs. A perfect option for those entering their first gravel grinder, the Wafer ride delivers the challenge and excitement of the Waffle ride in a fun-sized package.
A fully supported ride with CHP escorts, a multitude of support vehicles and feed stations dotted throughout.
Here’s the course by the numbers:
- 146 MILES OR 235 kilometers
13 CATEGORIZED CLIMBS (INCLUDING THREE CATEGORY 2 CLIMBS)
13,000 FEET OF CLIMBING
17 DIRT SECTIONS OVER 40 MILES (LONG, SANDY, WET, ROCKY, HILLY, UGLY)
14 WATER CROSSINGS (OR FOOT BRIDGE CROSSINGS)
10 FEED ZONES
– The winner of this year’s event will take around 8 hours to complete the course. This means for most it’s an 11-12- or 15-hour day on the bike.

The San Elijo Hills Community Association Board of Directors is aware that Governor Brown has signed emergency legislation (AB 349) restricting Associations from prohibiting the use of artificial turf or any other synthetic surface that resembles grass. Bill AB 349 does not prohibit an Association from applying landscaping rules established in the governing documents so long as the rules fully conform to restrictions in Civil Code 4735(a).
The Board is currently in the process of creating a proposed policy, which will be provided to the membership and formally adopted after the review and comment period in accordance with California Civil Code.
We appreciate your patience and understanding while the Board of Directors creates a policy that incorporates the synthetic material while maintaining a certain level of aesthetics and consistency in the community.
Double Peak Park Hours
As a reminder to residents, Double Peak Park is closed at dusk and persons in the parking lot and behind the lower gate will be cited by the Sheriff.
You should be receiving a letter in the mail from Dr. Holt in the next two days, here is the letter on the SMUSD and Double Peak School website.
Dear San Marcos Families,
Based on our collaborative and well-attended community meeting on Wednesday, February 11th, as well as additional feedback since that meeting, I am pleased to announce that the Double Peak School site will open as a K-6 in January 2016. I truly believe that this decision satisfies both the boundary and intra-district transfer families’ interests.
Double Peak and Ridgeline trails to reopen in San Marcos.
Ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled for Saturday, March 7.
The San Elijo Hills Association worked closely with CalFire, San Marcos Fire Department, and The City of San Marcos to repair the trails damaged after the Cocos fire. The Ridgeline trail is maintained by the San Elijo Hills Association (HOA). CalFire donated the labor to save the HOA and San Elijo Hills homeowners a substantial sum of money.
After nearly ten months San Marcos city officials will gather on Saturday, March 7 at 9 am near the end of Santa Barbara Drive for the grand re-opening of Double Peak and Ridgeline Trails in celebration of the 24th Annual San Marcos Trails Day. Equestrian riders will start at 102 San Elijo Road.
