I am the President of the San Elijo Hills Community Association. I wanted to reach out to say we have a great community with wonderful people who are helping one another.
At this time, I have a special concern for our elderly in San Elijo Hills. I would like to encourage everyone to reach out to their elderly neighbors (either by phone/email/note on the door). Let them know what you are willing to do to help them. All folks 65+ have been asked to self-quarantine.
I have reached out to San Elijo Hills Albertsons and requested that they have a time designated for seniors to shop during the week. Hoping this will minimize exposure for the older folks in our community. The manager told me he was going to try to get approval from corporate to implement that policy. I will keep you updated when they get back to me.
I also asked about ordering online with curbside pickup for all. He seemed to think that it was not feasible at this time but might consider it for the future.
Thank You – Laura Fratilla – San Elijo Hills Community Association – Board President
Sheriff Press release regarding yesterday’s fatal accident near Chevron:
On October 3rd , 2017, at approximately 4:48 p.m., Deputies from the San Diego County Sheriff’s San Marcos Station, Traffic Division responded to a vehicle versus a pedestrian collision in the 1700 block of San Elijo Road. Based on the preliminary investigation it was determined a vehicle was entering the number one lane of southbound San Elijo Road from a nearby business when it struck a female pedestrian who was in the roadway at the time. The female sustained life threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment where she later succumbed to her injuries. The driver of the vehicle sustained no injuries and remained on scene. Impairment of alcohol and/or drugs is still under investigation. The cause of the collision is currently under investigation. Anyone with information is requested to contact Deputy Rosenthal at (760)510-5047.
After perhaps 15 years of waiting — and trying not to lose faith — San Elijo Hills residents will finally see restaurants and shops go up on vacant land in the commercial heart of the upscale community. Grading is set to begin next week on a weedy, fenced-in patch of dirt in the middle of the sprawling master-planned development in southern San Marcos. Construction should start around October, and the first businesses could open by next spring on the 5 acres of vacant land in what is essentially downtown San Elijo.“I know there has been skepticism. I hope to cure that in a few weeks as we start creating dust and showing people what a great project this is,” said Duncan Budinger, director of retail development for Ambient Communities, which is building the project. “We fully believe we are going to meet or exceed the expectations of the community.”
