San Marcos gears up for 33rd annual National Night Out event at San Elijo Park

National Night Out

The City of San Marcos will host National Night Out at two locations on Tuesday, August 2 to celebrate America’s night out against crime.

The free event will be held at Connors Park, 320 W. San Marcos Boulevard from 3 to 6 pm; the second will be held at San Elijo Park, 1105 Elfin Forest Road from 5 to 7 pm.  Both offer an opportunity to meet your neighbors, local sheriff deputies and learn about the City’s crime prevention program.

Parents are encouraged to bring their children to one of the two event locations to be educated on good safety habits. The events will offer free hot dogs,  fingerprinting, information on neighborhood watch and tips for child safety. There will also be a talking patrol car, games and refreshments.

“National Night Out has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and law enforcement-community partnerships in our fight for a safer City,” explained San Marcos Sheriff’s Captain Mike McClain. “The benefits to the community extend well beyond this one night.”

San Marcos National Night Out is in coordination with the 33rd Annual National Night Out, a unique crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. Last year, more than 37 million people participated in National Night Out across the country in more than 15,700 communities.

Along with traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, most cities and towns celebrate National Night Out with a variety of special citywide and neighborhood events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, festivals, visits from local officials, safety fairs and youth events.

For more information, please call the City’s crime prevention unit at (760) 744-1050, ext. 3111 or (760) 510-5255.

San Elijo Park Splash Pad will turn on for the Summer

unnamed
Beginning Friday, June 17, the City of San Marcos will be turning on public splash pads to offer residents and visitors a place to enjoy water recreation during the hottest summer months.

Moving forward, splash pad hours will be from 10 am to 6 pm from Memorial Day weekend through September 30.

Located at Sunset Park, San Elijo Park, Buelow Park, Mulberry Park and Discovery Lake Park, splash pads are hand-activated water features within the playground that run for a limited time with little to no standing water to create a safe, water recreation destination.

“Thanks to continued water saving efforts this past year both in San Marcos and regionally, we are pleased to announce that one of our most popular summer attractions is returning,” said City Manager Jack Griffin.

In addition to splash pads, the City of San Marcos is home to two public pools – Woodland Park Aquatic Facility and Cerro De Las Posas Aquatic Facility – and boasts a comprehensive aquatic program featuring open recreation swim, family swim nights, swim assessments and ability-based swim lessons.

The city continues water conservation efforts with reduced irrigation schedules, converting conventional sprinkler spray heads with high efficiency sprinkler heads, installing drip irrigation, using native and/or drought tolerant plants in new or rehabilitated public space landscaping, retrofitting city buildings with low-flow water fixtures, and conducting landscape irrigation audits.

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Annie

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.

Water Restrictions Effective June 1st

San Diegans will now be able to only water their yards twice a week as part of the statewide water restrictions that went into effect June 1st. Houses with addresses that end in odd numbers can irrigate on Sunday and Thursday, while those ending in even numbers can water on Wednesday and Saturday. Any watering can now only be done between 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. for a maximum of five minutes per day. Fines for those found wasting water will range anywhere from $100 to $1,000.

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

Please note the following corrections regarding water restrictions:

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.

City of San Marcos, CA: Stage two drought alert in effect for San Diego County

City of San Marcos splash pads will temporarily close to conserve water

As a result of worsening drought conditions and Governor Edmund G. Brown’s statewide drought relief measures, the San Diego County Water Authority has declared a Level  drought alert prompting mandatory conservation measures to prevent water waste.

In order to comply with these state restrictions, the City of San Marcos will be closing splash pad water features at City parks beginning Friday, August 1 and will remain closed until drought conditions improve.

Parks affected by the splash pad closures include:

  • Sunset Park
  • San Elijo Park
  • Buelow Park
  • Mulberry Park
  • Lakeside Park

By closing the splash pads, the City anticipates saving between 8,100- and 12,150- gallons of water per day.

To further conservation efforts, the City is adjusting irrigation schedules and cutting back on watering in all San Marcos parks and other landscaped public spaces like center medians, street parkways and trails, and City Hall water fountain features.

The City’s public works department continued its water saving efforts by installing nearly 1,400 new rotator nozzles in turf areas and medians. Five new SMART controllers covering 7.5 acres were also installed to make real-time adjustments based on weather information to avoid water waste.

The Vallecitos Water District Board of Directors will be voting August 6 to move Vallecitos customers into a Level 2 Drought Alert as well.

For more information about the level 2 drought alert and mandatory conservation measures, please visit www.sdcwa.org/drought-response.
