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

Movie Night July 10th

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Paddington (rated PG) as part 2 of our 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.

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

Community Reminders

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.
Homeowners are encouraged to park all cars in the garage first, driveway second, and then in the street after all garage and driveway spaces are occupied.

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”

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. 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!

Fourth of July Celebrations

San Marcos 4th of July Celebration

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.

Barking Dogs

Please be considerate of your neighbors in respect to barking and noisy dogs. Please do not leave your dogs unattended, outside for long periods of time.

Disturbing the peace is prohibited under San Marcos code 6.24.140. No person shall own or harbor an animal in such a manner that the peace or quiet of the public is unreasonably disturbed. The keeping or maintenance, or the permitting to be kept or maintained, on any premises owned, occupied or controlled by any person of any animal or fowl which, by any frequent or long continued noise, shall cause unreasonable annoyance or discomfort to any person of normal sensitivity in the vicinity, shall constitute a violation of this section; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be construed to apply to reasonable noises emanating from legally operated veterinary hospitals, humane societies, animal shelters, farm and/or agricultural facilities, or areas where keeping of animals or fowls are permitted. Any person who violates any provision of this Section is guilty of a misdemeanor.

Curbing Your Pet

Thank you everyone for your continued efforts at curbing your pets. Please continue to be diligent as this can be a health & safety hazard as well as major community annoyance. Please also remember when picking up after your dog that you should NOT dispose of the waste in your neighbor’s trash can. Please use your own or one of the several designated doggie stations throughout the community.

Summer Time Shenanigans

Unfortunately, when school is out for summer there seems to be a rise in community complaints about children’s behavior. Please remind your children of the following:

-Always wear a helmet while skateboarding, bike riding and rollerblading.

-Do not doorbell ditch your neighbors.

-Town Square vandalism is costly to all community members so please treat the area kindly.

-Please do not play in the streets or attempt “dare-devil” feats on the steep hills in the community.  These activities are dangerous to children, drivers and other pedestrians.

-Please stay clear of areas that are flagged off due to construction, wet paint or new concrete.  These areas are temporarily “off-limits” for safety reasons as well as to ensure the repair cures property. Recently the HOA repaired a sidewalk that was vandalized before the concrete cured. This resulted the HOA having to complete the job twice.

And a reminder to the adults in the community:

-Please be extra cautious when driving through the community.

-It is best to take concerns about a child directly to the parents before involving the HOA.

Thank you everyone and we look forward to an awesome summer in San Elijo Hills!

Tomorrow’s Pirate Party has been cancelled- HOA Update


Dear San Elijo Hills Residents,

It is our sincerest hope that you and your family are doing well during this time. We anticipate that you will be able to return to your homes safely in the near future. Please continue to refer to www.san-marcos.net for information and instructions regarding when you are able to re-enter the community.

Tomorrow’s Pirate Party has been cancelled in order to give our residents an opportunity to focus on their families as well as for concern over air quality as a result of the fires. We hope that you will be able to join us at our next community event on June 13th which will be a Movie Under the Stars! Thank you for your understanding.

In appreciation of all the combined efforts of our state-wide fire departments, the HOA delivered lunch to the command center today in an effort to thank the firefighters and support staff for their service. Their hard work and dedication was monumental in keeping our community safe!

Again, you and your families are in our thoughts!

Warm Regards,
San Elijo Hills Board of Directors & Walters Management

Curbing Your Pet
The HOA receives numerous complaints regarding residents failing to curb their dogs in the community. Please not 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). 

Town Center Damage
Unfortunately, the Town Center area has suffered damages as a result of some vandalism. The following damages have recently occurred:

-Benches have been broken.
-Fountain has been filled with soap which required a complete draining and cleaning service.
-Tree limbs have been snapped.

Please remind all members of your household to treat the Town Square with respect. The cost to make these repairs comes from your HOA dues so everyone is financially impacted.

Community Gardens
Spring has sprung here in San Elijo Hills! There are still a few spaces available in our community garden for rent! Participating in the garden is a great way to work on your green thumb and witness the fruits of your labor as your seedlings begin to sprout!
