Unfortunately, we will not be able to allow you to enter the event without verifying residency. If your teens or kids come on their own, please remind them to bring identification. If you have any questions regarding the event or would like additional information, please feel free to contact your Community Director, Liz McCardle, at (760) 798-9015 or by email at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com.

No guests will be permitted. No pets are permitted.

Important! You must submit plans prior to making improvements

The Association has observed an increase in owners modifying their front yards without obtaining prior approval. With the current climate and drought conditions, we understand that owners are motivated to quickly throw in rock or decomposed granite along with small succulents. However, this is not always the best solution for the community as a whole. The Board of Directors has agreed to strictly enforce these infractions, and are in discussions on a fine policy to address these matters.

Please remember the following:
• Changes to homes and landscaping require architectural approval. Any change to your landscaping or home must be approved by the San Elijo Hills Architectural Committee (AC) prior to the commencement of work. The AC meets every month on the 2nd Wednesday. The Application and plans should be submitted well in advance of this meeting.
• Homeowners are responsible for maintaining their yards all year long. Please remember to keep yards trimmed, edged, and planter beds clean. Homeowners should pull weeds, trim bushes, mulch planters, remove and replace any dead vegetation, and generally clean landscaped areas regularly.
• Inspect fences, doors, shutters, etc. on an annual basis and paint as needed. A number of homes in San Elijo Hills are in need of some tender loving care. Garage doors, front doors, shutters, wood siding, and trim should be painted every few years or as needed. In addition, all wooden fences should be inspected annually and either stained or painted. If your home is over 10 years old, it may be time to consider repainting the home as a whole.

Trails Committee

Do you enjoy hiking, biking or strolling any of the 18 miles of trails in San Elijo Hills? Are you looking for a way to become more involved in the community? If you answered “yes” to both of these questions then you may be perfectly suited to serve on the Trails Committee! The Committee is dedicated to keeping our trails safe and beautiful. If you are interested, please contact Liz McCardle at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com for more information.

Spooky Movie in the Town Square & Costume Contest!

The San Elijo Hills Foundation will provide a few food trucks with a variety of food & refreshments for purchase. Please contact Liz McCardle with any questions at ehdirector@waltersmanagement.com.
