Movie Night August 7th

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Annie (rated PG http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1823664/parentalguide?ref_=tt_stry_pg) as part 3 of our summer movie series!

Annie will be shown on Friday, August 7th at the upper sports field (Hilltop Field) of San Elijo Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall, jousting, and obstacle course!) will begin at 6:00PM and the movie will start at sunset (around 8:00PM). Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating! A flashlight may come in handy too!

A few food trucks will be there, and will have a variety of food (including yummy pizza!), & refreshments for purchase. A portion of the food truck proceeds benefit the San Elijo Hills Foundation.

Annie is a Broadway classic that has delighted audiences for generations comes to the big screen with a new, contemporary vision in Columbia Pictures’ comedy, Annie. Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.

Community Reminders

Summer is the optimal time for painting your home! Now is the time to consider painting-whether it be that faded garage door, shutters, siding, or just the trim! If you are looking at changing the color, please submit the necessary plans and application for review and approval by the Architectural Committee.

Keep our yards looking their best! During the on-going drought and reduced watering times, owners must continue to maintain their yard areas by mowing, weeding, trimming, and pruning.

Did you know that there are many great alternatives to grass? Why not consider gardening with native plants. You can bring the beauty of California into your own landscaping while also receiving numerous benefits. There are flowers, grasses, shrubs, vines, and trees for any situation. If you are interested in modifying your current design, you must submit the necessary application and plans for review and approval by the Architectural Committee. Questions? Please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-9015.

During the summer months when the kiddos are out and about, please remember to encourage them to stay out of the streets and to be considerate to the surrounding homes with respect to noise and play equipment.

San Elijo Hills Foundation Pace Car Campaign

The PACE Car Campaign was originally triggered by a long-time resident of San Elijo Hills. Her idea stemmed from the concept of PACE Cars and how they help set the pace during a race.

-What if every resident was driving the speed limit in SEH?
-How would that affect the pace of traffic through the community?
-Can we as residents help set the pace in SEH?

Let’s find out! By building on this PACE Car concept & getting residents to commit to being vigilant about the traffic limits around our community, we believe, together, we can create a culture of safety in SEH.

Anyone who lives in SEH is encouraged to TAKE THE PACE PLEDGE. In exchange for your pledge, the SEH Foundation will provide you with a special SEH PACE Car sticker for your car window. Not only will seeing this sticker remind you to drive the speed limit, it will also serve as a moving billboard that reminds others around you to consider doing the same.

To take the pledge, please visit the SEH Foundation Website: http://sanelijohillsfoundation.weebly.com/pace-car-campaign.html. You may also visit the San Elijo Hills Foundation Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SanElijoHillsFoundation

  • The San Elijo Hills Community Association supports the individual action by community members to address issues that affect us all, however, as a reminder, the streets within the community are public and under the purview of the City of San Marcos. The Association has no direct enforcement ability with regard to speeding, parking, or other traffic related concerns”

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!

Committee Members Needed

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.

Movie Night July 10th

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Paddington (rated PG) as part 2 of our summer movie series!

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (Harry Potter), Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rare talking bear catches the eye of a museum taxidermist (Nicole Kidman).

Paddington will be shown on Friday, July 10th at the upper sports field (Hilltop Field) of San Elijo Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall and more!) will begin at 6:00PM and the movie will start at sunset (around 8:00PM). Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating!

A few food trucks will be there, and will have a variety of food & refreshments for purchase. A portion of the food truck proceeds benefit the San Elijo Hills Foundation.

San Elijo Hills Events

You may be wondering why all recent events have been scheduled for the upper Hilltop field. The City of San Marcos has required all of our events are located on the Hilltop (most upper field) as a result of damage to the ball fields. Based on concerns by local organizations, the fields have been off limits so that the turf has time to “heal.” The Association is making every effort possible to schedule future events at the ball fields.

San Elio Hills Community Association (HOA) – Water Restrictions & San Elijo Hills

San Elijo Hills

Dear Residents,

As you are aware, California is experiencing a significant drought. The drought is not only impacting the water supplies to residential locations but to the vast industry throughout the state. The purpose of this communication is to share with you the impact on the San Elijo Hills community and to discuss the ways we can work together to ensure San Elijo Hills supports our agencies and neighbors through conservation efforts.

Mandatory Water Conservation Regulations

On April 1, 2015, Governor Brown ordered the State Water Resources Control Board to implement reductions that will cut usage by 25%. As a result, the Vallecitos Water District raised its drought restrictions to Level 2. For a complete list of conservation actions, please visit www.vwd.org. We have also posted the drought restriction information (published by Vallecitos) on the Community Network at www.sanelijohillsnet.

Mandatory conservation actions related to landscape and irrigation include:

• Residential and commercial landscape irrigation is limited to no more than one day per week from November to May (no more than three days per week June through October).
• Irrigation is limited to no more than ten minutes per watering station. Systems using new water-efficient devices are excluded to this time constraint).
• Irrigation may only occur between 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.
• All water leaks must be repaired within 72 hours of notification by the water district.
• Outdoor watering is prohibited during and up to 48 hours after a rain event.
• Stop operation of ornamental fountains unless reticulating water is used.
• Prevent waste water associated with inefficient landscaping as well as flows onto non-targeted areas.

These regulations include both residential landscaping as well as the common areas, parks, etc. throughout the community. The San Elijo Hills Community Association is cooperating with the restrictions and has cut back irrigation accordingly. Please note: there are locations throughout the community with water efficient devices. These areas will operate with different run times to ensure the plants receive the appropriate level of irrigation within the restricted time frames. The Board is also continuing to look at areas where irrigation conversion is appropriate (switching from spray heads to drip tubing), and we will implement upgrades to the system throughout the year.

Maintenance Requirements

We understand the water restrictions will impact the health of plant material. The Association will continue to maintain its landscaped areas through regular weeding, mowing, edging and removal of dead material. Owners are expected to do the same. Therefore, please continue to maintain your yards. Owners should remove dead plant material and keep areas neat and tidy but weeding, mulching, trimming, etc.

Landscape Renovation Options

There are many options available to owners wishing to upgrade their landscaping and introduce drought tolerant themes. The Community Design Standards spell out a number of approved low water use plants from front yards. This list is NOT all inclusive but is an excellent starting point for residents. The Standards also include details on plant coverage and the use of rock in landscaping. Owners who wish to upgrade the landscaping on their properties must obtain approval from the San Elijo Hills Architectural Committee prior to installation. The regulations, explanation of process and application can be found on the Community Network at www.sanelijohills.net. Please contact Liz McCardle at lmccardle@waltersmanagement.com with questions.

Other Important Items to Note

The recent changes to the drought regulations will impact the Questhaven Park renovation project. The second part of the project was scheduled to begin on April 27. This project is on hold until the drought alter is reduced. Unfortunately, the new turf installed in the first phase of the project will be impacted. Please, please, please take care of the new grass area by reducing usage as much as possible. Wear appropriate shoes, use different areas to avoid wearing down the middle section, and avoid using the new grass for organized sports as much as possible.

In addition, while it uses recirculating water and is excluded from the ordinance, the fountain located in the town square will be turned off. The goal is to send a message that the community is sensitive to the water restrictions and will reduce opportunities for water loss and evaporation as much as possible. Please take a moment to talk with your children about the fountain and ask them to refrain from playing in the structure or vandalizing the area. The cost to repair assets from vandalism directly impacts our HOA dues.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and efforts to work together during this challenging time.

Regards,

Board of Directors
San Elijo Hills Community Association

  1.  LIGHTING:  Ensure homes are well lit at night. Immediately replace any exterior light bulbs. Place landscape spotlights in dark areas outside homes. Have interior lights on timers to create the sense that someone is home at all times.
  2.  PHYSICAL SECURITY: Lock your doors, gates, windows, and other entrances consistently.

For more home security tips, here’s a link from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department website:

http://www.sdsheriff.net/newsroom/links/home-security-tips.pdf

One-Way Streets in San Elijo

Traffic flow is oftentimes an issue in the community, particularly around the Town Square where many of the streets are one-way. According to the CA DMV website:

Except when a sign is in place prohibiting a turn, a driver, after stopping as required, facing a steady red signal, may turn right, or turn left from a one-way street onto a one-way street. A driver making that turn shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians lawfully within an adjacent crosswalk and to any vehicle that has approached or is approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard to the driver, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way until the driver can proceed with reasonable safety.

For the safety of our residents, please be aware of pedestrians and oncoming traffic and yield the right-of-way!
