Movie in the Town Square-Friday, July 19th

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Warner Brother’s The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (rated PG) this summer! It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are facing a huge new threat: Lego Duplo invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than they can rebuild. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part will be shown on Friday, July 19th at the Town Square Park in the town center. Pre-show activities will begin at 6:00 PM and the movie will start after sunset (around 8:30 PM). Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating! 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 email sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com.

Exterior Paint

Many homes within the community are hitting that age where exterior maintenance is required. Some owners already received notices to have their homes or portions thereof painted. This year, the Association will start reviewing specific neighborhoods that are showing signs of age more than others and request the owners to commence the painting process. We encourage all owners to get ahead of the “enforcement process” and review the current condition of all exterior surfaces, including wood fences.  Exterior colors provided by the Builders are often outdated or incomplete. In an effort to assist our residents, the Association coordinated with Dunn Edwards to create color matches for most neighborhoods. Please remember; if you are painting any portion of the home, approval is required.  There are no approved paint schemes. However, we may have the color match for your home prepared by Dunn Edwards.  If you are planning on painting, please provide the Home Improvement Application, physical paint swatches identifying the specific locations they will be applied, and a photo of your home. The Architectural Committee evaluates the colors based on what will be in harmony with the immediate neighborhood, the house elevation as well as the community as a whole.  If you have any questions or would like more information on the Dunn Edwards colors, please email Liz McCardle at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or call 760-798-9015.

Save the Date! Rock the Block Party & Dance Competition

Let’s Party!!!! Join us August 23rd in the Town Square Park! Dance along to the music with our awesome DJ & dancers while taking in the light show. Our own “Club” SEH! Watch yourself or your friends on the live screen on our 1st ever 8×14 foot LED wall! If you want to send a shout out on the live screen during the event, a signup sheet will be available, so stay tuned as the event approaches. Want to show off your dance skills or showcase your flossing or best mates? This is your chance! This year we will have an official dance competition on our giant stage and catwalk! If you are interested in participating, make sure to come and sign up early. Space will be limited. Just come to the party?

San Elijo Hills Community Association April 2019 HOA Update

Please see below for the most recent San Elijo Hills Community Association Updates:

April 30th – Take Action Against New Power Lines

The Master HOA is distributing this information on behalf of a Resident Committee to Stop the Powerlines; as the issue may affect some of our San Elijo Residents-for further information please contact the parties noted below.

April 30th – Take Action Against New Power Lines

On behalf of a Resident Committee to Stop the Powerlines:
The time for action is now! New SDG&E power lines and large steel poles are coming soon through our neighborhoods unless we attend these two April 30th meetings in force! This is our biggest and nearly final opportunity to communicate our concerns to the CPUC before these power lines and poles are built. Our goal is to stop SDG&E from building a second set of power lines through our communities and urge them to place these power lines underground.
• Tuesday, April 30th from 1 pm – 3 pm at the San Elijo Hills Rec Center, 1105 Elfin Forest Road, San Marcos, CA 92078
• Tuesday, April 30th from 6 pm – 8 pm at the San Marcos Community Center, 3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069
Click to sign-up https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1AZ9v6qLpstpO66SQUDi0Jip42ooP88RPfBg56C-tdbk/viewform?edit_requested=true. Learn more about SDG&E’s proposed project HERE (www.sanmarcospowerlines.com)

Background:
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), after 17 months of considering SDG&E’s request to build a new set of 69 kV high voltage transmission lines and large steel poles through our communities, has sent a Notice of Intent to approve the project to the Governor’s Office. We have 30 days, until May 15 at 5 p.m. to make our voices heard. There are viable alternatives to SDG&E’s proposed 12-mile circuitous route including a direct 5.4 mile underground route which would have no long-term environmental impact, unlike their current proposal. In summary:

The tentatively approved 12 miles above ground circuitous power line route will:
– Increase potential wildfire concerns
– Create unnecessary health risks for our children due to increased EMFs along the 12-mile route
– Decrease our property values (some more than others but we will ALL be impacted)
– Negatively impact habitat for some of our local sensitive species
– Negatively impact the aesthetic nature of our homes and community
– Potentially impact cultural resources buried along the route

The 5.4-mile alternative underground route:
– Has none of the above long-term negative impacts on our communities
– Has unknown financial consequences due to lack of in-depth budget analysis

Commit to attending April 30th. Bring a neighbor, a friend, and pack these hearings. Forward this email to your local networks, copy/paste to social media, and encourage participation in your neighborhood. Your community needs you!! Join our FB page https://www.facebook.com/groups/445866435944617/ to stay up to date on event details. Expect several more emails on this important issue in the coming weeks.

Coastal Cleanup Day

The California Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) has been set for 2018! 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 27th from 9:00AM-12:00 PM to help clean up the trails! Volunteers will meet in the Town Square (by the fountain) of San Elijo Hills at 9:00 AM. 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 at www.creektobay.org. 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!

Christmas Lights

We loved seeing all of your festive holiday decorations during the holiday season! We still see a good amount of lights still up, so please make arrangements to have them taken down as soon as possible. Please remember that the governing documents require removal of holiday lights no later than 15 days following the holiday. As you’re putting away electrical light strings, take time to inspect each for damage. Throw out light sets if they have loose connections, broken sockets or cracked or bare wires. Do not place a damaged set of lights back into the storage box for next year’s use. Wrap each set of lights and put them in individual plastic bags, or wrap the lights around a piece of cardboard. Store electrical decorations in a dry place where they cannot be damaged by water or dampness. Also, keep them away from children and pets. Thank you!

Community Garden Lottery

It is time for our annual community garden lottery! Grow your own flowers, vegetables, and herbs! Plots will be available from 4.1.19– 3.31.20. 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 space in one of the community gardens, please submit your application to the onsite office no later than 3.15.19. For more information please call 760-798-9015 or email sehdirector@waltersmanagement.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.

Questhaven Park Use

Our parks are some of our best assets. Turf repair is a normal part of maintenance, and the rate of deterioration of the 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. Thank you for looking out for our parks!  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.

Save the Date-BunnyPalooza

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is having its Annual BUNNYPALOOZA on Saturday, April 13th at the Hilltop field of San Elijo Hills Park. Activities will include an egg hunt, bounce houses, face painting, crafts, photo-ops with the Easter bunny, light refreshments, and more! A DJ will be entertaining us with music, games, and an obstacle course so parents and kids of all ages can enjoy some friendly competition! BUNNYPALOOZA will begin at 9:30AM and run until 11:30 PM. The Egg Hunt will be split by different age groups in 10-minute increments beginning at 10:00 AM. For more information please call 760-798-9015 or email sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com.

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.

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.

San Elijo Hills Association Board of Directors-October Meeting: RE-SCHEDULED

The next General Session Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Monday, October 22, 2018, 6:00 pm at the San Elijo Hills REC Center (1105 Elfin Forest Rd, San Marcos, CA 92078).

Front Yard Landscape

This year has brought some record-setting heat! The hot weather has affected many of the yards in San Elijo Hills. Now it’s time to cool off and give yards the TLC they deserve. Residents must continue to maintain their yard areas by mowing, edging, weeding, trimming, replacing dead vegetation and pruning.

Did you know that there are many great alternatives to grass? A well-designed drought-tolerant landscape can be filled with a lush variety of colorful plants that have year-round attractiveness and contain a sustainable landscape that benefits the environment. There are trees, shrubs and ground covers, grasses and wildflowers that are already well-adapted to the environment in our region. They will reduce the use of fertilizers, pesticides, watering, and maintenance. Native and non-native species can be interspersed to add variety and color. Plant using multiple layers or mixed borders. Trees, shrubs, and flowers can be planted in layers which successively shade each other, requiring less water. Plantings should be closely spaced to discourage weeds from sprouting.

Consider mulch! The first line of defense against hot weather, and against windy conditions which can dry surface soil, is to apply a liberal layer of mulch around the plants. This protects the soil from direct sun exposure, keeping it moist at the surface. Mulch also reduces evaporation of water from the soil which reduces the need for watering.

If you are interested in modifying your current design, please remember that you must submit the necessary application and plans for review and approval by the Architectural Committee. The Committee typically meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-9015 or sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com with any questions.
