Movie in the Park-Part I

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (rated PG) as part of our summer movie series Friday June 9th at the lower softball field of San Elijo Hills Park!

The year is 1936. An archeology professor named Indiana Jones is venturing in the jungles of South America searching for a golden statue. Unfortunately, he sets off a deadly trap but miraculously escapes. Then, Jones hears from a museum curator named Marcus Brody about a biblical artifact called The Ark of the Covenant, which can hold the key to humanly existence. Jones has to venture to vast places such as Nepal and Egypt to find this artifact. However, he will have to fight his enemy Rene Belloq and a band of Nazis in order to reach it.

For our younger audiences, we will be showing a 30 minute compilation of Looney Tunes prior to the main feature!

Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall and more!) will begin at 6:00PM and the Looney Tunes will start after sunset (around 8:30PM) with the main feature beginning at approximately 9:00 PM.

Community Reminders

-Clear and visible address numbers are important when it comes to safety. Please check your address numbers and replace any faded or missing numbers. This is a safety concern, which could potentially delay first responders in an emergency response.
It also impacts the general aesthetics of the community and is part of the required maintenance per the Governing Documents.

-No Parking zones have been designated on many of our streets to ensure adequate access for vehicles, most importantly emergency vehicles. Please be reminded that it is illegal to park in No Parking zones, and we ask that residents, as well as guests, gardeners, contractors, etc. refrain from parking in No Parking zones. Also, please keep sidewalks clear of vehicles and obstacles so that pedestrians can use them. To report illegal parking in your neighborhood, call (619) 531-2000.

A Fresh Coat for a Fresh Start

How closely have you look at your homes paint lately? Many homes in the community are beginning to show their age with faded, discolored, and peeling paint facades and fences. It is important to keep your home looking its best by having those areas power-washed and painted on a regular basis.

Did you know we now have paint color booklets for each neighborhood? With current palettes and some suggested palettes, you can refresh your homes look by visiting the onsite office for ideas. All painting requires the submission of an application and approval by the Architectural Committee. But it’s an easy process and we would love to assist you through it!

Interested in a group discount? With enough committed residents, the HOA can facilitate group discounts with reputable paint companies. Please email us at sehstaff@waltersmanagement.com to get on the interest list. Let us know what you are interested in painting (i.e. whole house, trim/shutters/doors only, fence only, etc.).

GOVERNOR ENDS DECLARATION OF DROUGHT

On April 7, 2017, Governor Brown issued Executive Order B-40-17. With this an important change has occurred.

Associations were previously prohibited from enforcement action against homeowners who allowed their yards to “go brown” by not watering it during the declared state of a drought.

Now that the declaration has ended, homeowners are requested to take immediate steps to restore the look of their yards, by either replacing the turf grass or submitting a request for improvements to change to a drought tolerant landscape; or submitting an application for approval for artificial turf, in conformance with the minimum requirements adopted by the Association.

For copies of the current architectural guidelines, including the artificial turf policy, please contact Interim Community Director, Rashell DeYoung at sehstaff@waltersmanagement.com.

Filing Complaints

When living in a community association, neighbor relations is an on-going process. If a concern arises, it can be a challenging and uncomfortable situation. Some would like to be anonymous so as to avoid confrontation with the person who is in violation of the rules.

To take action based on an anonymous complaint interferes with a homeowner’s due process rights. If an anonymous complaint cannot be identified, and the Association cannot independently verify the violation, penalties cannot be levied.

We are here to help! The rules and regulations contain a complaint form that you may submit for review by the Association. Upon verification of the infraction, the Association can begin the enforcement process.

If you have questions or would like to obtain a form, please contact Walters Management at 760-431-2522 or access on the Association’s website.

San Elijo Hills Executive Board of Directors Meeting
The next Executive Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 23, 2017, 6:00 pm at the on-site office in San Elijo Hills (1277 San Elijo Rd S, San Marcos, CA 92078).

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.

Community Reminders

 It has come to our attention that people are riding dirt bikes throughout our beautiful trails in San Elijo Hills. Motorized Dirt Bikes ARE NOT allowed on the trails! http://www.san-marcos.net/Home/ShowDocument?id=1474. There are a variety of public lands in California that are open to managed OHV recreation. Check with your local land management agency regarding legal riding areas and local regulations. There are many privately owned and operated motocross tracks throughout the state. A list of riding opportunities on public lands can be located at http://www.ohv.parks.ca.gov/ .Thank you for your cooperation.

 The HOA receives numerous complaints regarding residents failing to curb their dogs in the community. Please note 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).

 Please remember to trim any trees growing over the sidewalks or dropping seeds or leaves. They can create unsafe conditions for people and pets. We appreciate your efforts in keeping the sidewalks and streets looking great!

Movie In the Park- Last Movie of the Summer:

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Sony Pictures Hotel Transylvania 2 (rated PG) as part of our summer movie series!

Now that Dracula (Adam Sandler) has opened the Hotel Transylvania’s doors to humans, things are changing for the better; however, Drac is secretly worried that his half-human grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing his vampire side. So, while Mavis and Johnny are away, Drac enlists his friends to help him put the boy through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But things really get batty when Drac’s cantankerous, old-school dad (Mel Brooks) pays an unexpected visit.

Hotel Transylvania 2 will be shown on Friday, August 5th at the lower softball field of San Elijo Hills 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 8:15PM). 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.

Contact Liz McCardle with any questions at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or call (760) 798-9015.

Entry Feature Landscape Renovation-Update

If you have driven through our entrance, you probably noticed the various flags and drying vegetation. This was intentional and for a great reason….a fresh new look!

The Board of Directors recently approved a proposal from O’Connell Landscape to enhance the entry area by opening visibility to the water feature and providing a diverse environment of colorful plants, ground covers, and accents.

Shortly they will begin trenching and wiring for lighting on the monument wall and trees, and then proceeding with installing decomposed granite pathways and planting.

Completion of this project is anticipated for the end of August. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time!

For more information, feel free to contact Liz McCardle at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or call (760) 798-9015.

Next Board of Directors Meeting: August 29, 2016

The next Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for 8/29/16, 6:00 pm at a different (temporary) location.

Tree Trimming:

Please remember to trim any trees growing over the sidewalks or dropping seeds or leaves. They can create unsafe conditions for people and pets (poor little puppy paws!). We appreciate your efforts in keeping the sidewalks and streets looking great!

Dogs Off Leash

An increase in dogs of leashes has been reported 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.

Vallecitos Water District Ends Restrictions On Outdoor Watering

The Vallecitos Water District’s Board of Directors recently voted to rescind the mandatory drought restrictions under its “Level 2 Drought Alert” and move to voluntary conservation measures under its “Level 1 Drought Watch,” thereby ending restrictions on outdoor watering. Vallecitos customers may now irrigate any day of the week with no limit on the number of watering days, and may irrigate their landscapes as long as necessary. However, the Board expressed their desire to sustain water conservation as a permanent way of life and adopted a new ordinance permanently prohibiting wasteful practices, such as:

• Visible signs of runoff when watering landscapes
• Watering between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
• Watering within 48 hours of a measurable rain event
• Hosing down hardscapes (patios, sidewalks, etc.)
• Not using a shut-off nozzle when washing cars
• Not fixing leaks within 48 hours of discovery

The District’s action was taken in response to the State Water Resources Control Board recently terminating water use reduction mandates and allowing water agencies to set their own water use targets based upon their specific supply conditions. Recognizing persistent yet less severe drought conditions throughout California, the newly adopted emergency regulation, which is in effect through January 2017, mandates that urban water suppliers act to ensure at least a three year supply of water to their customers under drought conditions.  A thorough analysis determined that Vallecitos has sufficient water supplies for its customers, even if drought conditions continue for the next three years; therefore, the District won’t be subject to state-mandated water-use reductions through January 2017. This is due largely to its customers who saved 25 percent since June 2015 and the fact that Vallecitos now receives a portion of its water directly from the Carlsbad Desalination Plant, which is a local, drought-resilient supply. “Due to the exceptional conservation efforts by our customers and the foresight of the District to secure desalinated seawater, we are now able to give our customers greater flexibility when it comes to keeping trees, plants and vegetation alive,” said Vallecitos Board President, Mike Sannella. “We applaud our customers’ efforts and encourage them to continue to use water efficiently at all times.”

Entry Feature Landscape Renovation

If you have driven through our entrance, you probably noticed the various flags and drying vegetation. This was intentional and for a great reason….a fresh new look!

The Board of Directors recently approved a proposal from O’Connell Landscape to enhance the entry area by opening visibility to the water feature and providing a diverse environment of colorful plants, ground covers, and accents. A rendering will be available soon to homeowners who are interested in seeing the design. Stay tuned!

Artificial Turf Policy

On September 14, 2015 AB 349 was approved by the Governor, and set forth a mandate which prevented homeowners associations from disallowing the use of artificial turf in their communities.
The San Elijo Hills Board conducted a thorough review of the requirements of the law and created the Artificial Turf Guidelines. In accordance with California Civil Code 1357.130, homeowners were provided a copy of the proposed policy for review and comment period.
On June 21, 2016, the Board of Directors met to review all comments made either in-person or in-writing. After careful consideration, the Board adopted the policy with minor changes. A copy of the approved policy will be available to homeowners through the Association’s websites or you may request an electronic copy from Walters Management.
Here are some important highlights!

• Quality product that includes minimum 10 year warranty, 100% recyclable and made in USA.
• Installed in accordance with requirements. Refer to section (C) “Installation”
• Maintained professionally with evidence of service contracts upon request.
• Replaced in its entirety when the color has faded.
• The guidelines allow up to 50% of the landscape area in the front of your house to be artificial turf with restrictions. Side and rear yards are unlimited. Turf cannot directly attach to your front sidewalk. A buffer is needed to soften the look and to make it appear natural.
• The turf has to be of high quality and installed correctly. There are specific requirements for the base, turf, installation and warranty requirements. No rubber fill can be used. Artificial turf that loses 20% of its original color must be replaced in entirety.

The Board of Directors will delegate the review duties for artificial turf to an outside consultant. This decision was made so that a qualified professional is able to review the technical components and installation methods.

The anticipated cost will be $100 payable to the San Elijo Hills Community Association. This would cover the cost to review the information and inspection after installation. As with any changes to the exterior of the home, including artificial turf, plans must be approved by the San Elijo Hills Community Association. If you wish to make changes, please contact Liz McCardle at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or (760) 798-9015 for assistance.

Community Reminders

Clear and visible address numbers are important when it comes to safety. Please check your address numbers and replace any faded or missing numbers. This is a safety concern, which could potentially delay first responders in an emergency response.
It also impacts the general aesthetics of the community and is part of the required maintenance per the Governing Documents.

Paint or stain your fences. Fences should be stained or painted to match the house trim. No red or artificial colors, please. Protect the integrity of your fence while enhancing the look of your home!

Movie in the Park-Part I

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Illumination Nation’s Minions (rated PG) as part of our summer movie showings!

Without a master to grovel for, the Minions fall into a deep depression. But one minion, Kevin, has a plan; accompanied by his pals Stuart and Bob, Kevin sets forth to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. Their search leads them to Scarlet Overkill, the world’s first-ever super-villainess.

Minions will be shown on Friday, June 3rd at the lower softball field of San Elijo Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, bungee run, 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.

Please remember to bring proof of residency to gain entrance into the event (i.e.: driver’s license with on-site address, utility bill, HOA statement, etc.). Unfortunately, we will not be able to allow you to enter the event without verifying residency. No guests will be permitted.

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 have been used in the past (sign spinners, signs on cars, etc).

We are seeing an increasing number of 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.
