For more information please call 760-798-9015 or email sehstaff@waltersmanagement.com.

Paint Policy

It’s always a great time to paint your home! Many of the homes are reaching that age for a fresh coat of paint. The first indication we typically see are on wood elements such as shutters, garage doors, fascia, etc. However, we also have stucco fading and staining.

Homeowners request to either paint the original colors or change to a new color scheme. The original colors we have on file are provided by the Builder and often outdated or incomplete. Some neighborhoods we have no corresponding information on which home each scheme applies to.

In an effort to simplify the process and assist homeowners in making successful requests, the Association connected with Dunn Edwards who have created color matches to the original colors for each neighborhood.

The Board of Directors recently met and approved the color books along with a new paint policy.

If you are painting any portion of the home, approval is required. Even if it is to another scheme in your neighborhood or the original color.

There are no “pre-approved” list of schemes for any neighborhoods, however, we may have the color match to the existing color scheme 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 themes of the neighborhoods and how the new colors are consistent to the existing schemes.

If you have any questions, please email sehstaff@waltersmanagement.com or call 760-798-9015.

San Elijo Hills Onsite Office

Liz McCardle is currently on maternity leave. The office will remain open during this time. For any questions involving community events or architectural matters, please continue to call the onsite office at 760-798-9015 or email at sehstaff@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.

Groups have continued 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.

Intra-District Transfers – The SMUSD’s Student Services department and DPS have spent the last three weeks working on intra-district transfers.  There has been an increased complexity to the puzzle with over 600 transfer requests and DPS opening at 3 different sites.  Over the next two weeks, Student Services will be processing transfers (approvals and denials) and mailing them home.  Thank you for you patience.

GATE and Honors Classes – DPS will have both GATE and honors classes.  Students may be assessed for GATE in third grade, with the program starting in fourth grade (district-wide standard).  For sixth grade, the amount of honors classes depends on the amount of students who qualify.

PTO Meeting – The next PTO meeting is scheduled for May 7th at 5:30 p.m. at the SMUSD District Office.  All PTO meetings are open to the public.  Hope to see you there.

K-6 Opening – DPS will officially open as a K-6 for the 2015-2016 school year and transition to a K-8 over the next two years.

Construction

As of last Monday, all of the walls are vertical.  You can now start to see the design of the campus.  The large open space to the west will be the play fields and one of the parking lots.
