San Elijo Hills Community Association HOA updates for August 2017

Movie in the Park – Part III –Upper Softball Field

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Disney’s Moana (rated PG) as the final movie of the summer series!

Together they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds. Along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she always sought: her own identity.

Moana will be shown on Friday August 25th at the upper softball field of San Elijo Hills Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall and more!) will begin at 6:00PM and the movie will start after sunset (around 8:15).

Trails Cleanup Day

The California Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) has been set for 2017! The San Elijo Hills trails system is a designated California Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) area, and we need volunteers!
The trail system within San Elijo Hills is such a beloved feature of our community! Please join us on Saturday, September 16th from 9:00AM-12:00PM to help clean up the trails!

Volunteers will meet in the Town Square (by the fountain) of San Elijo Hills at 9:00AM. Walk-ups are welcome but pre-registration helps us with site logistics, so if you know for sure you want to help, please register online at www.cleanupday.org.

All volunteers should wear comfortable closed toed shoes and sun protection. You can help reduce waste by bringing your own reusable water bottle, and gardening or work gloves. Note: every participant in CCD needs to sign a waiver; anyone under the age of 18 needs a parent or guardian signature to participate! Students are eligible for community service hours, and prizes will be given out for the most trash collected! Together we can all make a difference!

San Elijo Hills Association Board of Directors Meeting

The next General Session Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 22, 2017, 6:00 pm at the San Elijo Hills onsite office (1277 San Elijo Rd. S, San Marcos, CA 92078).

Board of Directors:

Your Board of Directors is hard at work with many on-going projects.

If you have recently driven through our entrance, you may have noticed that a significant amount of plants have been added around the entry water feature creating a more colorful and diverse palette. In conjunction with this upgrade, the Board has also been focusing on the monument area and signage. The Board is actively pursuing proposals to modify the signage and incorporate additional water elements into the design.

Along with the upgrades, the Board of Directors have been diligently working to fix the entry water feature which has been non-operational due to pump failure. The pump replacement has been approved and is in process. We are excited to see what is in store for this area as the Board finalizes their plans!

Annual Elections: December 13, 2016

This year’s Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 13th at 6:00PM at the San Elijo Hills Rec Center (1105 Elfin Forest Road, San Marcos, CA 92078).

Neighborhood Representatives are required to attend to the meeting to ensure quorum is established and the votes from their neighborhood are counted. All homeowners are also welcome to attend the meeting. Thank you all in advance for your participation in this process for our community!

Questhaven Park

As a reminder to residents, Questhaven Park is closed at dusk and persons in the park 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.

Parking

The Holiday season is upon us! Food, shopping, and school breaks (how are you going to get your shopping done?!) are most likely on your mind. Parking may not be on your radar. Add parking for guests during the Holidays on top of your current parking situation can always be a challenge. Not only is this a good time to think about where to put all those cars, but to consider the Association’s rules and year round parking issues within the community.

• Streets become more crowded when garages and driveways are not utilized for parking. Vehicles should be parked in available garage space first, then parked in the driveway, and then, if necessary, parked in the street.
• Garages shall be used for vehicles and other personal storage only.
• (Section 8.6): No trailer, camper, boat, recreation vehicle, commercial vehicle or similar equipment shall hereafter be permitted to remain upon the property (unless placed or maintained within an enclosed garage) nor permitted to be parked on any street, whether public or private, alley or community common area or project common area within the San Elijo Hills Community other than temporarily for purposes of loading, unloading or cleaning.
Pet Waste

Please pick up after your pets and remind your children to do so as well if they are responsible for the dog-walking duties. Don’t forget those common areas next to homes! Pet waste is probably the #1 complaint amongst our residents, so please be diligent and keep San Elijo Hills looking and smelling beautiful!

Trash Cans

We appreciate a majority of the homeowners that ensure trash cans are brought in and out on a regular basis!

Please remember that trash cans must be stored behind the side yard fence or in garages. Containers may not be placed outside for pick up before 6:00 p.m. on the day prior to service and must be removed no later than 9:00 p.m. the evening of pick up. In addition, homeowners may not put trash in receptacles that do not belong to them. Trash is collected in San Elijo Hills on Thursdays.

Thank you for your efforts!

Onsite Office Holiday Hours

In recognition of the holiday season and to give our staff more time with their families, our offices will be closed from Monday, December 26, 2016 through Monday, January 2, 2017.    We will return on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.   If you have an emergency, please call Walters Management at (858) 495-0900 and our on-call staff will address your emergency immediately.   Have a happy holiday season!

San Elijo Hills Community Association (HOA) August 2016 updates:

Movie in San Elijo Hills Park

San Elijo Hills Community Association (HOA) updates:

Movie In the Park- Last Movie of the Summer:

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Sony Pictures Hotel Transylvania 2 (rated PG) as part of our summer movie series!

Now that Dracula (Adam Sandler) has opened the Hotel Transylvania’s doors to humans, things are changing for the better; however, Drac is secretly worried that his half-human grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing his vampire side. So, while Mavis and Johnny are away, Drac enlists his friends to help him put the boy through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But things really get batty when Drac’s cantankerous, old-school dad (Mel Brooks) pays an unexpected visit.

Hotel Transylvania 2 will be shown on Friday, August 5th at the lower softball field of San Elijo Hills 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 8:15PM). 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 & refreshments for purchase.

Contact Liz McCardle with any questions at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or call (760) 798-9015.

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.

City of San Marcos Community Center
3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069 (Dining Room)

See you there!

Tree Trimming:

Please remember to trim any trees growing over the sidewalks or dropping seeds or leaves. They can create unsafe conditions for people and pets (poor little puppy paws!). We appreciate your efforts in keeping the sidewalks and streets looking great!

Dogs Off Leash

An increase in dogs of leashes has been reported in various neighborhoods. Pet owners shall at no times allow pets to run unrestrained in common areas, streets, sidewalks or pathway areas and shall at all times have full and complete control over the animal. Please remember there is a $250 fine from the county (San Diego County Code Sec. 63.0102(b)(2)) for unrestrained pets.

Save the Date: Block Party in the Town Square

Join us September 9, 2016 in the town square park at 6 pm for another Block Party in the Town Square! Getting the party started will be a live DJ, dancers, dance floor, music and lights! We will have interactive games (for all ages!), contests, prizes, photo booth and more surprises! Only one way to find out…come join us!

A local fire truck and ambulance will be on the scene for your enjoyment!

Food and beverages are also just steps away! Enjoy one of the local eateries or grab a bite from one of the delicious food trucks.

The party begins on 9/9/16 at 6:00 p.m. and goes approximately 9:00 p.m. For more information, feel free to contact Liz McCardle at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com or call (760) 798-9015.

Home Safety Reminders

You can never be too safe when it comes to protecting your home. Please keep in mind the following reminders:

  1.  LIGHTING:  Ensure homes are well lit at night. Immediately replace any exterior light bulbs. Place landscape spotlights in dark areas outside homes. Have interior lights on timers to create the sense that someone is home at all times.
  2.  PHYSICAL SECURITY: Lock your doors, gates, windows, and other entrances consistently.

  3.  REPORT: Be a good neighbor and a good partner with your Sheriff’s patrol team, and report suspicious activity to the Sheriff’s office.

For more home security tips, here’s a link from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department website: http://www.sdsheriff.net/newsroom/links/home-security-tips.pdf

One-Way Streets in San Elijo

Traffic flow is oftentimes an issue in the community, particularly around the Town Square where many of the streets are one-way. According to the CA DMV website:

Except when a sign is in place prohibiting a turn, a driver, after stopping as required, facing a steady red signal, may turn right, or turn left from a one-way street onto a one-way street. A driver making that turn shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians lawfully within an adjacent crosswalk and to any vehicle that has approached or is approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard to the driver, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way until the driver can proceed with reasonable safety.

For the safety of our residents, please be aware of pedestrians and oncoming traffic and yield the right-of-way!
