The summer edition of the San Marcos 360 is now available online and will be delivered to San Marcos residents and businesses this week.
Featuring articles on upcoming road improvements, emerging business industry clusters, summer recreation opportunities, water safety, wildfire preparedness, and more, the free magazine serves to connect residents to their government.
San Marcos 360 is published three times per year by the city of San Marcos and includes timely news about the city along with a complete guide to the city’s parks and recreation offerings.
Inside, residents and visitors can also discover exciting recreational activities, special events, day camps, enrichment programs and classes, sporting leagues, and senior programs.
Beginning Friday, June 17, the City of San Marcos will be turning on public splash pads to offer residents and visitors a place to enjoy water recreation during the hottest summer months.
Moving forward, splash pad hours will be from 10 am to 6 pm from Memorial Day weekend through September 30.
Located at Sunset Park, San Elijo Park, Buelow Park, Mulberry Park and Discovery Lake Park, splash pads are hand-activated water features within the playground that run for a limited time with little to no standing water to create a safe, water recreation destination.
“Thanks to continued water saving efforts this past year both in San Marcos and regionally, we are pleased to announce that one of our most popular summer attractions is returning,” said City Manager Jack Griffin.
In addition to splash pads, the City of San Marcos is home to two public pools – Woodland Park Aquatic Facility and Cerro De Las Posas Aquatic Facility – and boasts a comprehensive aquatic program featuring open recreation swim, family swim nights, swim assessments and ability-based swim lessons.
The city continues water conservation efforts with reduced irrigation schedules, converting conventional sprinkler spray heads with high efficiency sprinkler heads, installing drip irrigation, using native and/or drought tolerant plants in new or rehabilitated public space landscaping, retrofitting city buildings with low-flow water fixtures, and conducting landscape irrigation audits.

The Resort at San Elijo Hills
What if you could have your own little mini-resort right here in San Elijo Hills?
Would you be willing to pay anywhere from $80-$135 a month to secure a membership at a private club that would give you exclusive access to an elegantly designed resort style pool with a ‘splash pad’, a separate adult spa and children’s pool, an enormous pool deck and patio areas with cabanas, expansive lawn area for open space events, special events area with gazebo and spectacular Westerly views, multiple picnic areas with gas BBQ’s, sand volleyball court, basketball court, as well as lush, full landscaping?
Would you gather up your friends and neighbors for an afternoon of sand volleyball and BBQ? Would you meet fellow moms and their kids to swim and play in the water on a warm summer day? Would you get your friends together for a game of basketball and a picnic on the grass? Would you plan your next special event outdoors overlooking the ocean? Would you spend a Saturday afternoon lounging in the sun and chatting with neighbors?
These are the kinds of opportunities that would be afforded to members of The Resort at San Elijo Hills if the project moves forward. When the owners of the tennis club that was to be built on the corner of Questhaven and Wild Canyon, realized their dream was no longer feasible due to the shift in the financial market, they started talking to other local contacts to see if they could find another solution that would be more financially feasible. Geyser Holdings came up with a proposal that, with enough potential membership interest, could quickly materialize.
The Resort at San Elijo Hills would be the kind of place where we could get together as neighbors, host events or just escape for relaxation right here in our backyard….our own little La Costa.
If this is something you’d be interested in looking into for your family, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know you’d like to be on their “Founding Members” interest list. The more interest they receive, the more they will move forward with details on the project.
There are more details as to how the membership costs are structured, but the important thing at this point is to express interest so those details can be finalized and initiated. Right now, Founding Members would be committing to $135/month for the first five years after which time the price would go down significantly (down to around $20/month) and the membership could be transferred to new homeowners should you sell your home (could be a nice little perk for your house someday).
Please respond this weekend if you’re interested. They have a meeting schedule on Monday where some decisions will be made related to the project.
Developer Russell Geyser of Geyser Holdings gave a 45 minute presentation of his vision of what will be financially feasible in today’s economic climate and still meet the needs of San Elijo Hills. “The art of the possible”is how Geyser phrased it. Geyser Company holds and repositions shopping centers and hotels in California and Hawaii including San Marcos Edward’s Theater.
The Resort at San Elijo Hills concept is a 3 acre complex with a 4,000 SQF pool surrounded by a kids pool with beach entry, BBQ areas, sand volleyball, spa without walls/cabanas, basketball court, kids play area and village green style open space. The area would be appropriately landscaped to shield the adjacent homes. The complex would have one entry/exit for safety. The parcel design has the pool set back away from road noise and wind but adjacent to the homes. The area facing the view and San Elijo Road could potentially be used for weddings (source of revenue). The new plan which was presented, did not include tennis or a fitness center. The pool design did include lap swimming using lighting on the bottom of the pool. Geyser stated he felt he was over parking the project but was unable to state pool or resort capacity at this time. Geyser created his vision based on his experiences at La Costa Spa & Resort and his desire to create an oasis that creates a safe family pool environment. He also felt that fitness center concept is becoming over saturated in north county with Pure Fitness, Pacific Athletic club potentially coming to the old Olympic Club, LA fitness, and Frogs.
Geyser stated in this economic climate with so many bargains popping up he changed his mind and moved away from funding the project all cash. He hoped to gain guaranteed support from San Elijo Hills residents to allow for financing the $5,000,000 project ($4200,000 w/o purchasing the land). Geyser explored the possibility for all residents to be assessed a flat $29 HOA fee, but there were concerns that it would be hard to get 67% quorum have moved focus to new scenario. The current scenario is modeled out as a concept only.
Secure 640 founding members at $135 a month for 5 years and each founding member share in the operating expenses ($25,000 monthly) using an estimate of $19 a month. After 5 years the founding members pay only the monthly operating expenses. Operating expenses would be offset by revenue (weddings, packaged food sales etc..) Founding members would have privileges that a 2nd class of members would not have (reserve chairs, BBQ’s etc) The 2nd class of membership would be $60-$80 a month without special privileges. Founding membership would be transferable with the sale of home via escrow..it was not clear if membership was available to SEH residents only, this would be of concern for OCR and Venzano.
