Trails Clean-Up Day

The California Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) is back! 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, April 22nd 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.

To register beginning April 1st, simply go to cleanupday.org and then look for San Marcos – San Elijo Trails under the Cleanup Sites link.

Community Reminder

Please pick up after your pets and remind your children to do so as well if they are responsible for the dog-walking duties. Pet waste is probably the #1 complaint amongst our residents so please be diligent and keep San Elijo Hills looking and smelling beautiful!

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.

Artificial Turf

The San Elijo Hills Community Association Board of Directors is aware that Governor Brown has signed emergency legislation (AB 349) restricting Associations from prohibiting the use of artificial turf or any other synthetic surface that resembles grass. Bill AB 349 does not prohibit an Association from applying landscaping rules established in the governing documents so long as the rules fully conform to restrictions in Civil Code 4735(a).

The Board is currently in the process of creating a proposed policy, which will be provided to the membership and formally adopted after the review and comment period in accordance with California Civil Code.

We appreciate your patience and understanding while the Board of Directors creates a policy that incorporates the synthetic material while maintaining a certain level of aesthetics and consistency in the community.

Double Peak Park Hours

As a reminder to residents, Double Peak Park is closed at dusk and persons in the parking lot and behind the lower gate will be cited by the Sheriff.

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.

Community Garden Lottery

It is time for our annual community garden to come alive! Participating in the garden is a great way to grow your own flowers, vegetables and herbs! Planter boxes will be available from April 1, 2015– March 31, 2016. The cost of a yearly lease is $50.00 plus a $25.00 key deposit and must be pre-paid. All existing lessees must reapply. Current users who are not reselected in this year’s lottery must vacate their planter boxes no later than April 1st, 2015. If you would like to participate, please contact Ted Tuleck at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com for more information or to obtain a lottery application.

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.

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. 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. 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.

One-Way Streets in San Elijo Hills

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!
