May 2017 San Elijo Hills Community Association HOA Updates:

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.

Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating.

This year we will provide free popcorn! The San Elijo Hills Foundation will provide food trucks and will have a variety of food & refreshments for purchase.

For more information, please e-mail: sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or call (760) 798-9015.

Date has changed!! Foam Party in the Town Square

Come join us in the town square park for a foam party! Dr. Bronner’s Foam truck will be coming out on Wednesday June 21, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. for a free foam party! The foam is biodegradable and made simply from organic soap, water and compressed air. Take the family down for music, foam, and fun! Bring your towels, bathing suits and goggles or come as you are!

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.).

Save the Date: Summer BBQ and Concert – July 1, 2017!

Come down and celebrate our summer spectacular! This all American themed carnival will entertain our residents of all ages with music, carnival games, prize booth with tons of prizes, obstacle course, bounce houses, zip line, rock wall, and much more!

Document your experience with a keepsake, and visit our photo booth! If you are hungry during all that fun, fill up on BBQ chicken, BBQ pulled pork, hot dogs, salad, fruit and other yummy classics!

Featuring The Mighty Untouchables!! Bring your chairs, blankets, sit back and enjoy the concert!

There is no need to go anywhere when you can hang out in your own neighborhood and celebrate the Holiday weekend San Elijo Hills style! This event will take place on Saturday July 1, 2017 at 5 pm to 9 pm at the upper softball field of San Elijo Hills Park!

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.

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.

The deadline to sign up is May 17.

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.

San Elijo Hills Community Association (HOA) updates:

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.

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.

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.

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.”

For more detailed information on the new permanent prohibitions, go to www.vwd.org/drought.

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!

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.

City of San Marcos Community Center
3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069 (Dining Room)

See you there!

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!

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.

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).

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.

Eucalyptus Trees: San Elijo Hills “City” Park

A cluster of “volunteer” Eucalyptus trees will be removed on Friday, May 6th, in the San Elijo Hills Park between the lower and upper softball fields.

The trees are located in an easement for the San Diego County Water Authority, and currently sit on top of two pipelines. In addition to limiting access to the pipes, the trees are beginning to arc creating a health and safety issue.

The San Elijo Hills Park is not owned or maintained by the San Elijo Hills Community Association.

Movie in San Elijo Hills Park

Movie Night This Friday August 7th

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Annie (rated PG http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1823664/parentalguide?ref_=tt_stry_pg) as part 3 of our summer movie series!

Annie will be shown on Friday, August 7th at the upper sports field (Hilltop Field) of San Elijo Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall, jousting, and obstacle course!) 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 flashlight may come in handy too!

A few food trucks will be there, and will have a variety of food (including yummy pizza!), & refreshments for purchase. A portion of the food truck proceeds benefit the San Elijo Hills Foundation.

Annie is a Broadway classic that has delighted audiences for generations comes to the big screen with a new, contemporary vision in Columbia Pictures’ comedy, Annie. Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.

Annie is a Broadway classic that has delighted audiences for generations comes to the big screen with a new, contemporary vision in Columbia Pictures’ comedy, Annie. Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.

Community Reminders

Summer is the optimal time for painting your home! Now is the time to consider painting-whether it be that faded garage door, shutters, siding, or just the trim! If you are looking at changing the color, please submit the necessary plans and application for review and approval by the Architectural Committee.

Keep our yards looking their best! During the on-going drought and reduced watering times, owners must continue to maintain their yard areas by mowing, weeding, trimming, and pruning.

Did you know that there are many great alternatives to grass? Why not consider gardening with native plants. You can bring the beauty of California into your own landscaping while also receiving numerous benefits. There are flowers, grasses, shrubs, vines, and trees for any situation. If you are interested in modifying your current design, you must submit the necessary application and plans for review and approval by the Architectural Committee. Questions? Please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-9015.

During the summer months when the kiddos are out and about, please remember to encourage them to stay out of the streets and to be considerate to the surrounding homes with respect to noise and play equipment.

San Elijo Hills Foundation Pace Car Campaign

The PACE Car Campaign was originally triggered by a long-time resident of San Elijo Hills. Her idea stemmed from the concept of PACE Cars and how they help set the pace during a race.

-What if every resident was driving the speed limit in SEH?
-How would that affect the pace of traffic through the community?
-Can we as residents help set the pace in SEH?

Let’s find out! By building on this PACE Car concept & getting residents to commit to being vigilant about the traffic limits around our community, we believe, together, we can create a culture of safety in SEH.

Anyone who lives in SEH is encouraged to TAKE THE PACE PLEDGE. In exchange for your pledge, the SEH Foundation will provide you with a special SEH PACE Car sticker for your car window. Not only will seeing this sticker remind you to drive the speed limit, it will also serve as a moving billboard that reminds others around you to consider doing the same.

To take the pledge, please visit the SEH Foundation Website: http://sanelijohillsfoundation.weebly.com/pace-car-campaign.html. You may also visit the San Elijo Hills Foundation Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SanElijoHillsFoundation

  • The San Elijo Hills Community Association supports the individual action by community members to address issues that affect us all, however, as a reminder, the streets within the community are public and under the purview of the City of San Marcos. The Association has no direct enforcement ability with regard to speeding, parking, or other traffic related concerns”

Water Restrictions Effective June 1st

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.

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

Committee Members Needed

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.

Movie Night This Friday July 10th – Paddington

Movie in San Elijo Hills Park

Movie Night July 10th

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Paddington (rated PG) as part 2 of the summer movie series!

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (Harry Potter), Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rare talking bear catches the eye of a museum taxidermist (Nicole Kidman).

Paddington will be shown on Friday, July 10th 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 (including yummy pizza!), & refreshments for purchase. A portion of the food truck proceeds benefit the San Elijo Hills Foundation.

San Elijo Hills Events

You may be wondering why all recent events have been scheduled for the upper Hilltop field. The City of San Marcos has required all of our events are located on the Hilltop (most upper field) as a result of damage to the ball fields. Based on concerns by local organizations, the fields have been off limits so that the turf has time to “heal.” The Association is making every effort possible to schedule future events at the ball fields.

Water Restrictions Effective June 1st

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.
