We loved seeing all of your festive holiday decorations during the holiday season! We still see a good amount of lights still up, so please make arrangements to have them taken down as soon as possible. Please remember that the governing documents require removal of holiday lights no later than 15 days following the holiday. As you’re putting away electrical light strings, take time to inspect each for damage. Throw out light sets if they have loose connections, broken sockets or cracked or bare wires. Do not place a damaged set of lights back into the storage box for next year’s use. Wrap each set of lights and put them in individual plastic bags, or wrap the lights around a piece of cardboard. Store electrical decorations in a dry place where they cannot be damaged by water or dampness. Also, keep them away from children and pets. Thank you!

Open House Signs
The San Elijo Hills Community Association has a very specific sign policy in place regarding Open House signs in the community implemented to keep our community beautiful! The San Elijo Hills Community Association’s governing documents prohibit the display of any non-Association signs in the Common Area. The intent of the San Elijo Hills Open House Sign Policy is to (1) provide an acceptable means for homeowners to market homes for sale within the community; (2) reduce the number of open house signs used in the community; and (3) discourage the ‘alternative’ means of signage that has been used in the past (sign spinners, signs on cars, etc.). We are seeing an increasing number of unapproved signs, signs with balloons, flags, and riders that are directly in conflict with our policy. Here are some highlights:
• Approved Open House signage is allowed for use on Saturday’s and Sundays from 1:00 – 4:00 pm only.
• No riders, balloons, flags or other attention generating devises may be used with the sign.
• Only one sign directing traffic either left or right may be installed at each corner. The first homeowner or agent to reach an intersection on route to their open house will place their sign at the given location. If another homeowner or agent has an open house along the same route, an additional sign is not needed. Homeowners or agents should continue to the next intersection on route to the open house and place their sign as necessary. In many cases, several open houses can be served by the same directional sign.
• It is your responsibility as the homeowner to notify your agent of the policy prior to putting out their signage. If it does not follow the guidelines, it will be removed and disposed of. The Open House Policy can be found on our website www.sanelijohills.net for your convenience. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
Questhaven Park Use
Our parks are some of our best assets. Turf repair is a normal part of maintenance, and the rate of deterioration of the 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. Thank you for looking out for our parks! 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.
