San Elijo Hills Community Association March 2017 HOA Updates

Please see below for the most recent San Elijo Hills Community Association HOA Updates:

Save the Date-BunnyPalooza!

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is having its Annual BUNNYPALOOZA on Saturday, April 8th at the Hilltop field of San Elijo Hills Park.
This year’s event will include an egg hunt, bounce houses, face painting, crafts, photo ops with the Easter bunny, light refreshments, and more! This year we added a DJ! They will provide music, games, and an obstacle course so parents and kids of all ages can enjoy some friendly competition!

BUNNYPALOOZA will begin at 9:30AM and run until 12:00 PM. The Egg Hunt will be split by different age groups in 10 minute increments beginning at 10:00 AM.

Don’t forget to bring your own basket to collect your eggs and a camera to take pictures with the Bunny! Hope to see you there!

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

Community Garden Lottery

It is time for our annual community garden lottery! Grow your own flowers, vegetables and herbs!

Plots will be available from 4.1.17– 3.31.18. The cost of a yearly lease is $50.00 plus a $25.00 key deposit (pre-paid).

All existing lessees must reapply for the lottery. If you would like to participate in the lottery to lease a space in one of the community gardens, please submit your application to the onsite office no later than 3.14.17.

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 The original colors we have on file are provided by the Builder and often outdated or incomplete.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.
San Elijo Hills Association Board of Directors Meeting

The next Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 18, 2017, 6:00 pm at the San Elijo Hills REC Center (1105 Elfin Forest Rd., San Marcos, CA 92078).

**Since 2006 SanElijoLife.com provides community news, photos, videos, and a directory of resources for residents of San Elijo Hills. The site is independent from the developer and the HOA and is run by local homeowners.

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!

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 our residents without excessive damage and unnecessary closures. Thank you for looking out for our parks!

Town Square Fountain

Our beautiful fountain located in the center of the Town Square Park is a community asset which has been long enjoyed by residents.

The fountain uses recirculating water. A pump sends water from a reservoir at the base throughout the entire system. The pump continues to recycle the water as long as it is turned on.

Recently, in order to conserve water resources and to further the Association’s efforts to comply with the water reduction measures mandated by the State, the Association drained the fountain.

Unfortunately, in that time numerous incidents of children running through the empty fountain, skateboarders skating in the fountain, and children climbing on the fountain have occurred. Such activity has led the Association to reevaluate their previous decision to shut the fountain down, primarily due to public safety issues as well as the very real economic concern regarding what it may cost to restore the fountain if it were damaged during such activities. The potential safety and financial concerns heavily outweighed any minimal gains in water conservation that might be made by having it shut down.

Therefore, weighing all factors as thoroughly and objectively as possible, the Board of Directors voted in favor of having the fountain refilled and the pump turned back on for residents to again enjoy. It is expected that the fountain will be flowing again prior to the upcoming Thanksgiving Weekend.

Address Numbers

Clear and visible address numbers are important when it comes to safety. Please check your address numbers and replace any faded or missing numbers. This is a safety concern, which could potentially delay first responders in an emergency response.

It also impacts the general aesthetics of the community and is part of the required maintenance per the Governing Documents.

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 340 does not prohibit an Association from applying landscaping rules, 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 1357.130.

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. Please be courteous and refrain from entering this area after the park is closed, which often disturbs the residents nearby.

Annual Elections

Voting Day is ahead of us here in San Elijo Hills! This year’s Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 15th at 6:00PM at the San Elijo Elementary School auditorium. Homeowners are encouraged to either return their ballots by mail or drop them in the ballot box in the Visitor’s Center by the deadline listed on the notice to ensure they are counted. 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!

San Elijo Hills Management Announcement

San Elijo Hills Community Association Management Change-Sent to HOA Members-

Dear San Elijo Hills Community Association Member:

As some of you may know, I am relocating to Northern California with my family and will be leaving my position on May 20.  I am pleased to introduce Rebecca McDonald as the new Community Association Manager for San Elijo Hills. Rebecca is the current regional manager for the Walters Management Carlsbad office and has significant experience with communities similar to San Elijo Hills.  I have worked with Rebecca for several months, and I believe she is a great fit for your community.

Rebecca can be reached at rmcdonald@waltersmanagement.com or (760) 431-2522.  Please feel free to contact Rebecca and her assistant, Michael, with any questions or concerns regarding the San Elijo Hills.  And, please take a moment to introduce yourself and welcome her to the community during the next board meeting or special event.

Liz McCardle continues to compliment the management team and will transition to the on-site office on June 1.  We believe this transition will allow us to better support the community by enhancing the services available on-site.  Liz supports the Board of Directors and Architectural Review Committee through the management of community-building activities and the architectural approval process.  You may reach Liz at lmccardle@waltersmanagement.com or (760) 431-2522.  After June 1, you can find Liz at the Visitor Center (1277 San Elijo Road).  The on-site phone number is (760) 798-9015.

San Elijo Hills Community Association – Questhaven Park Turf Maintenance Closures

Dear San Elijo Hills Residents,

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 will begin on March 16th. A portion of the grass area will be closed so that we may remove the damaged areas and re-sod and re-seed the turf. We will be starting with the south side of the park. Once this area is completed, it will be reopened and we will close the north side of the park. Each section will be closed for up to six weeks. Please follow are 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.

Regards,
Jean Salvia
San Elijo Hills Community Association Manager

Dear San Elijo Hills Residents,

First and foremost, we hope that you and your families are safe during this time. As there continues to be a fire threat near the San Elijo Hills community, we encourage you to continue to follow instructions issued by emergency responders. Please refer to  the City’s website at www.san-marcos.net for the most current information  regarding evacuated areas, road closures and related updates. We also encourage you to utilize media outlets to obtain updated information.

Currently, the on-site office and Visitor’s Center are closed until further notice.  The Carlsbad office of Walters Management is also closed as it is in an evacuated area of Carlsbad. All calls are being rerouted to the San Diego office of Walters Management and staff there are available to support our local employees as we work to remotely assist you.
