Recent Burglaries

It has been brought to the Association’s attention that burglaries are on the rise in San Elijo Hills. We did a little digging, and found great resources on sdsheriff.net. Here are some tips off of their website:

Did You Know? The majority of residential crimes are crimes of opportunity, wherein the victims have left their homes unsecured. The opportunity for residential burglary
must be curtailed both individually and collectively through citizens working with local
Law enforcement agencies. Many people who have never been a victim are often less than diligent about securing their homes and safeguarding their property. Unfortunately, thieves seek out these vulnerable opportunities, accessing homes and garages through unlocked doors and windows with minimum effort. The SD County Sheriff estimates from reports that an average burglary only takes 3-5 minutes.

Shut out burlgars-5 Key Components
WHEN APPLIED TOGETHER, THESE FIVE ITEMS SERVE TO HELP
PREVENT RESIDENTIAL BURGLARIES.

• Surveillance-The ability for people to see and be seen by day and by night.
• Lighting- Interior and exterior, on timers when it starts to get dark.
• Physical Security- Locks, hardware and structural elements.
• Evidence- of Activity providing a sense of occupancy at all times.
• Neighborhood Watch- Neighbors watching out for each other.

Most law enforcement agencies promote the principles of Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) as the most effective way to confront crime. This environmental approach incorporates the above five key aspects into three specific areas of a residence, each of which is equally important to address.

The Exterior
Included in the exterior category are lighting, landscaping and house numbers. Adequate, appropriate lighting and a well-maintained yard creates an aesthetically pleasing environment while allowing surveillance, defining space and guiding guests on to and out of your property.

The Perimeter
Doors, windows, other entrances and alarm systems comprise the perimeter features. The primary goal is to remove any opportunity for a burglar to gain easy access and to ensure that security hardware and devices are not only adequate, but that they are used consistently.

The Interior
The interior includes all interior factors such as lighting, timers and perceived activity. The goal is to create the sense that someone is home at all times, as most burglars want to avoid confrontation.

By maximizing the security elements in these three environments and maintaining the concepts of the Neighborhood Watch Program, you will enjoy the benefits of a secure home and community. Neighborhoods interested in starting a Neighborhood Watch program should contact the Community Relations Officer with the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station. They will walk you through process, from providing notices for your first meeting, to attending the meeting and discussing concerns with residents. Once a Neighborhood has held their first meeting, and upon submission of a sign in sheet the HOA will provide signs to be displayed in your neighborhood.

San Elijo Hills Community Association Onsite Office

The San Elijo Hills Development Company’s Visitor’s Center is now closed. Not to worry!  The office has now transitioned solely to the Association’s onsite office. Liz McCardle will continue at the onsite office supporting the Board of Directors and Architectural Review Committee through the management of community-building activities, community events and the architectural approval process!  Please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-9015 or by email: sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com. For all other Association related matters, please contact the Community Association Manager, Rebecca McDonald at 760-431-2522.

Next Board of Directors Meeting: October 18, 2016

The next Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for 10/18/16, 6:00 pm at
The San Elijo Hills Recreation Center (1105 Elfin Forest Road
San Marcos, CA 92078).

San Elijo Hills Women’s Club Hoedown in the Hills

Grab your “pardner,” a pal or two, put on your cowboy duds, and join in the fun! San Elijo Hills Women’s Club’s Hoedown in the Hills promises to be an exciting evening of mouth-watering barbeque, beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages, toe-tapping music, line dancing, an energetic live auction, and the opportunity to bid on amazing silent auction items throughout the evening, all for only $45 per person. So step right up, purchase your tickets without delay at sehwc.weebly.com, and mark your calendars for Saturday, October 22, 6-10 PM at the Williams Barn in Walnut Grove Park, 1950 Sycamore Drive, San Marcos. All proceeds from this event benefit Straight from the Heart, a local support and outreach organization serving 5000 North County foster children and their families.

Exterior Paint

It’s always a great time to paint your home! Many of the homes are reaching that age for a fresh coat of paint, and San Elijo Hills Homeowners are on the task!

You are permitted to paint the exterior without approval from the Association ONLY if you are painting the same colors currently existing on the home. If you are changing colors on any portion of the house, approval is required. Even if it’s to another scheme in your neighborhood. There are no “pre-approved” list of schemes for any neighborhoods. The Association MAY have a list of colors or the specific color match to the existing homes provided by the prospective builders for each neighborhood.  If you are planning on painting, please provide the Home Improvement Application, paint samples identifying the specific locations they will be applied, and a photo of your home. The Architectural Committee considers the existing color schemes in the neighborhood and how the new colors compliment them.

If you have any questions, please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-905 or sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com.

Questhaven Park

While turf repair is a normal part of maintenance, the rate of deterioration of grass is accelerated when the park is used for commercial purposes or when residents heavily use the grass when it is wet. The Association will close off sections of the park when it rains until the grass is dry.

There have recently been groups continuing to use the field on these closed areas. Please refrain from 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. 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!

San Elijo Hills Community Association – HOA Updates for the end of Summer

San Elijo Hills Tails

Town Square Fountain:

The fountain in our town square park is a valued feature of our community, and enjoyed by all of our residents.

We have noticed an increase in vandalism to the fountain. Soap has been poured into the water, kids have been found jumping in or on the tiered areas that have damaged lights, and the structure itself.

When these types of vandalism occur, the fountain has to be drained and the necessary repairs are performed. This is often costly to the Association.

We encourage you to speak to your kids, and help us stop the ongoing damage. The Board of Directors will be looking at options on enforcing these matters.

We appreciate your help! (This happened again this last weekend)

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.

October San Elijo Hills Community Association Updates

DSC_4815

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

Oktoberfest

Prost!! ! Fall is in the air and our most popular event of the year is back! Come celebrate Oktoberfest with your neighbors on Sunday, October 18th from 3:00PM-6:00PM at the lower softball field of San Elijo Park! Expect some of your past favorites, and some new surprises!

We will be celebrating German traditions through food! Bratwurst, hot dogs, veggie dogs, potato salad, sauerkraut, soft pretzels, and apple strudel will be served. A beer garden will also be available to residents 21 and over (must bring a valid state-issued driver’s license or ID). Four drink tickets will be given per household. No outside alcohol will be permitted into the event.

A lively DJ will be playing some German music mixed in with some modern, family-fun hits that will be sure to get you on your feet and dancing!

Carnival games will be sure to entertain our young residents! We will also have face painting, pumpkin decorating, arts & crafts, a rock climbing wall, bounce house, obstacle course, wrecking ball ride, photo booth and much, much more!

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.

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. Hope to see you all there!

Artificial Turf

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 340 does not prohibit an Association from applying landscaping rules, 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 1357.130.

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. Please be courteous and refrain from entering this area after the park is closed, which often disturbs the residents nearby.

Address Numbers

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.

Yard Maintenance

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

Did you know that there are many great alternatives to grass? Why not consider gardening with sustainable landscape that benefits the environment. There are trees, shrubs, 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. Please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-9015 with any questions.

Town Center Fountain & General Water Restrictions

It has been brought to the attention of the HOA that there may be concerns regarding the fountain in the Town Square during California’s drought. The water in the fountain is re-circulated and there is no additional waste of water while the fountain is running. It must be run regularly to keep the equipment functioning properly. We have been working with the Vallecitos Water District to ensure that all restrictions and guidelines are being met.

On a related note, the Association has dialed back the landscape irrigation in areas where water restrictions are applicable. Therefore, you may notice our grass areas in the community are under stress. While much of the irrigation on our perimeter slopes is not subject to water restrictions due to type of irrigation system in place, we are sensitive to the drought conditions and have restricted water use where possible in these areas.
