Following is a list of important announcements and upcoming events for The San Elijo Hills Community Association:

Block Party in the Town Square-September 11th

Summer has ended, and the new school year is beginning, which can mean only one thing…..BLOCK PARTY! What better way to welcome your newest neighbors and catch up with your favorite friends! Let’s celebrate our award-winning community, and bring everyone together!

Getting the party started will be a live DJ, dancers, dance floor, music and lights! We will have interactive games (for all ages!), contests, prizes and more! Only one way to find out…come join us!

A local fire truck and ambulance will be on the scene for your enjoyment!

Food and beverages are also just steps away! Enjoy one of the local eateries or grab a bite from one of the delicious food trucks.

The party begins on September 11th at 6:00 p.m. and goes until 9:00 p.m. For more information, feel free to contact Liz McCardle at or call (760) 798-9015.

Win a dinner with your local firefighters

The San Elijo Hills Development Company and San Elijo Hills Foundation have teamed up and donated a certificate that entitles the winner and five guests to a dinner prepared by Firefighters at a local fire station! The dinner also includes a tour of the station and their emergency equipment.

Raffle tickets will be sold at the BLOCK PARTY in the town square event on September 11th and a lucky winner will be drawn!

Trails Clean Up Day

The California Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) has been set for 2015! 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, September 19th from 9:00AM-12:00PM to help clean up the trails!

Volunteers will meet in the Town Square (by the fountain) of San Elijo Hills at 9:00AM. 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

Special Instructions: 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!

Community Yard Sale

The community-wide yard sale is back!
It’s time to decide what you can live without! Pull out your price stickers because the San Elijo Hills Community Association is sponsoring a community-wide yard sale. All residents are welcome to participate in this FREE event!

The yard sale will be held on Saturday, September 26th from 7:00AM-11:00AM. The yard sale will be promoted to the public so expect many shoppers! Directional signage will be placed out the morning of the sale to direct yard-salers to the individual neighborhoods.

Do you only have a few items to sell? Join up with your neighbors to create one mega-sale!

Please note, there will be NO MAPS distributed indicating which individuals homes are participating. Please feel free to add additional signage in the community after 8:00PM the night before (Friday 9/25/15) so long as it is removed promptly after the event.

For more information, please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-9015 or

Architectural Committee

Interested in making exterior improvements to your yard or home? Please make sure to submit the Architectural Application and plans prior to the scheduled date.

The Architectural Committee typically meets the 2nd Tuesday each month.

If you have any question, please contact Liz McCardle, at (760) 798-9015 or email

Water Restrictions Effective June 1st

On May 20, 2015, Vallecitos’ Board of Directors adopted emergency drought restrictions under Ordinance 195 that limits all outdoor irrigation, excluding certified agricultural or commercial growers, during the months of June through October to 2 unassigned days per week/8 minutes per station. If demands are not reduced by 24%, additional enforcement may be needed and the District may need to reduce watering to 1 assigned day per week.

Please remember to keep your yard weed free and maintained to ensure our community continues to look its best!

Recent Resident Concerns

It has been brought to our attention that kids are using party poppers in common areas.

“Party snaps” or “party poppers,” are designed to make a small bang when thrown against the ground. The party snaps make a flash when they explode and can potentially be hazardous if not properly used. Party snaps should not be used by kids without adult supervision. Parents who want to use the party snaps or similar products are advised to read the warning labels.

We encourage you to speak with your kids about refraining from this activity.
