San Elijo Hills Community Association April 2019 HOA Update

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

April 30th – Take Action Against New Power Lines

The Master HOA is distributing this information on behalf of a Resident Committee to Stop the Powerlines; as the issue may affect some of our San Elijo Residents-for further information please contact the parties noted below.

April 30th – Take Action Against New Power Lines

On behalf of a Resident Committee to Stop the Powerlines:
The time for action is now! New SDG&E power lines and large steel poles are coming soon through our neighborhoods unless we attend these two April 30th meetings in force! This is our biggest and nearly final opportunity to communicate our concerns to the CPUC before these power lines and poles are built. Our goal is to stop SDG&E from building a second set of power lines through our communities and urge them to place these power lines underground.
• Tuesday, April 30th from 1 pm – 3 pm at the San Elijo Hills Rec Center, 1105 Elfin Forest Road, San Marcos, CA 92078
• Tuesday, April 30th from 6 pm – 8 pm at the San Marcos Community Center, 3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069

Background:
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), after 17 months of considering SDG&E’s request to build a new set of 69 kV high voltage transmission lines and large steel poles through our communities, has sent a Notice of Intent to approve the project to the Governor’s Office. We have 30 days, until May 15 at 5 p.m. to make our voices heard. There are viable alternatives to SDG&E’s proposed 12-mile circuitous route including a direct 5.4 mile underground route which would have no long-term environmental impact, unlike their current proposal. In summary:

The tentatively approved 12 miles above ground circuitous power line route will:
– Increase potential wildfire concerns
– Create unnecessary health risks for our children due to increased EMFs along the 12-mile route
– Decrease our property values (some more than others but we will ALL be impacted)
– Negatively impact habitat for some of our local sensitive species
– Negatively impact the aesthetic nature of our homes and community
– Potentially impact cultural resources buried along the route

The 5.4-mile alternative underground route:
– Has none of the above long-term negative impacts on our communities
– Has unknown financial consequences due to lack of in-depth budget analysis

Commit to attending April 30th. Bring a neighbor, a friend, and pack these hearings. Forward this email to your local networks, copy/paste to social media, and encourage participation in your neighborhood. Your community needs you!! Join our FB page https://www.facebook.com/groups/445866435944617/ to stay up to date on event details. Expect several more emails on this important issue in the coming weeks.

Coastal Cleanup Day

The California Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) has been set for 2018! The San Elijo Hills trails system is a designated California Coastal Clean up 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 27th from 9:00AM-12:00 PM to help clean up the trails! Volunteers will meet in the Town Square (by the fountain) of San Elijo Hills at 9:00 AM. 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.creektobay.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!
