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 The original colors we have on file are provided by the Builder and often outdated or incomplete.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.

Should you need to submit a work order request, have questions regarding your account, enforcement matters or any other management related matters, please contact Becca Warrillow at 760-431-2522 or by email (bwarrillow@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.

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

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.

San Elio Hills Community Association (HOA) – Water Restrictions & San Elijo Hills

San Elijo Hills

Dear Residents,

As you are aware, California is experiencing a significant drought. The drought is not only impacting the water supplies to residential locations but to the vast industry throughout the state. The purpose of this communication is to share with you the impact on the San Elijo Hills community and to discuss the ways we can work together to ensure San Elijo Hills supports our agencies and neighbors through conservation efforts.

Mandatory Water Conservation Regulations

On April 1, 2015, Governor Brown ordered the State Water Resources Control Board to implement reductions that will cut usage by 25%. As a result, the Vallecitos Water District raised its drought restrictions to Level 2. For a complete list of conservation actions, please visit www.vwd.org. We have also posted the drought restriction information (published by Vallecitos) on the Community Network at www.sanelijohillsnet.

Mandatory conservation actions related to landscape and irrigation include:

• Residential and commercial landscape irrigation is limited to no more than one day per week from November to May (no more than three days per week June through October).
• Irrigation is limited to no more than ten minutes per watering station. Systems using new water-efficient devices are excluded to this time constraint).
• Irrigation may only occur between 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.
• All water leaks must be repaired within 72 hours of notification by the water district.
• Outdoor watering is prohibited during and up to 48 hours after a rain event.
• Stop operation of ornamental fountains unless reticulating water is used.
• Prevent waste water associated with inefficient landscaping as well as flows onto non-targeted areas.

These regulations include both residential landscaping as well as the common areas, parks, etc. throughout the community. The San Elijo Hills Community Association is cooperating with the restrictions and has cut back irrigation accordingly. Please note: there are locations throughout the community with water efficient devices. These areas will operate with different run times to ensure the plants receive the appropriate level of irrigation within the restricted time frames. The Board is also continuing to look at areas where irrigation conversion is appropriate (switching from spray heads to drip tubing), and we will implement upgrades to the system throughout the year.

Maintenance Requirements

We understand the water restrictions will impact the health of plant material. The Association will continue to maintain its landscaped areas through regular weeding, mowing, edging and removal of dead material. Owners are expected to do the same. Therefore, please continue to maintain your yards. Owners should remove dead plant material and keep areas neat and tidy but weeding, mulching, trimming, etc.

Landscape Renovation Options

There are many options available to owners wishing to upgrade their landscaping and introduce drought tolerant themes. The Community Design Standards spell out a number of approved low water use plants from front yards. This list is NOT all inclusive but is an excellent starting point for residents. The Standards also include details on plant coverage and the use of rock in landscaping. Owners who wish to upgrade the landscaping on their properties must obtain approval from the San Elijo Hills Architectural Committee prior to installation. The regulations, explanation of process and application can be found on the Community Network at www.sanelijohills.net. Please contact Liz McCardle at lmccardle@waltersmanagement.com with questions.

Other Important Items to Note

The recent changes to the drought regulations will impact the Questhaven Park renovation project. The second part of the project was scheduled to begin on April 27. This project is on hold until the drought alter is reduced. Unfortunately, the new turf installed in the first phase of the project will be impacted. Please, please, please take care of the new grass area by reducing usage as much as possible. Wear appropriate shoes, use different areas to avoid wearing down the middle section, and avoid using the new grass for organized sports as much as possible.

In addition, while it uses recirculating water and is excluded from the ordinance, the fountain located in the town square will be turned off. The goal is to send a message that the community is sensitive to the water restrictions and will reduce opportunities for water loss and evaporation as much as possible. Please take a moment to talk with your children about the fountain and ask them to refrain from playing in the structure or vandalizing the area. The cost to repair assets from vandalism directly impacts our HOA dues.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and efforts to work together during this challenging time.

Regards,

Board of Directors
San Elijo Hills Community Association

Questhaven Park Maintenance Closures

Please be advised that we will be repairing the turf in the Questhaven Park over the next two months. This is an extensive project that will be completed in two phases in order to allow you to continue to use portions of the park during the renovation. The renovations will not impact your use of the playground.

The project began on March 16 and will continue through the end of May. Please follow all signage and do not use the areas that are closed. If residents do not follow the signs and use areas before they are re-opened, we may need to extend the project.

Please limit your 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.

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.
