San Marcos gears up for 33rd annual National Night Out event at San Elijo Park

National Night Out

The City of San Marcos will host National Night Out at two locations on Tuesday, August 2 to celebrate America’s night out against crime.

The free event will be held at Connors Park, 320 W. San Marcos Boulevard from 3 to 6 pm; the second will be held at San Elijo Park, 1105 Elfin Forest Road from 5 to 7 pm.  Both offer an opportunity to meet your neighbors, local sheriff deputies and learn about the City’s crime prevention program.

Parents are encouraged to bring their children to one of the two event locations to be educated on good safety habits. The events will offer free hot dogs,  fingerprinting, information on neighborhood watch and tips for child safety. There will also be a talking patrol car, games and refreshments.

“National Night Out has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and law enforcement-community partnerships in our fight for a safer City,” explained San Marcos Sheriff’s Captain Mike McClain. “The benefits to the community extend well beyond this one night.”

San Marcos National Night Out is in coordination with the 33rd Annual National Night Out, a unique crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. Last year, more than 37 million people participated in National Night Out across the country in more than 15,700 communities.

Along with traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, most cities and towns celebrate National Night Out with a variety of special citywide and neighborhood events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, festivals, visits from local officials, safety fairs and youth events.

For more information, please call the City’s crime prevention unit at (760) 744-1050, ext. 3111 or (760) 510-5255.

October San Elijo Hills Community Association Updates


Following is a list of important announcements and upcoming events from The San Elijo Hills Community Association (HOA):


Prost!! ! Fall is in the air and our most popular event of the year is back! Come celebrate Oktoberfest with your neighbors on Sunday, October 18th from 3:00PM-6:00PM at the lower softball field of San Elijo Park! Expect some of your past favorites, and some new surprises!

We will be celebrating German traditions through food! Bratwurst, hot dogs, veggie dogs, potato salad, sauerkraut, soft pretzels, and apple strudel will be served. A beer garden will also be available to residents 21 and over (must bring a valid state-issued driver’s license or ID). Four drink tickets will be given per household. No outside alcohol will be permitted into the event.

A lively DJ will be playing some German music mixed in with some modern, family-fun hits that will be sure to get you on your feet and dancing!

Carnival games will be sure to entertain our young residents! We will also have face painting, pumpkin decorating, arts & crafts, a rock climbing wall, bounce house, obstacle course, wrecking ball ride, photo booth and much, much more!

Please remember to bring proof of residency to gain entrance into the event (i.e.: driver’s license with on-site address, utility bill, HOA statement, etc.). Unfortunately, we will not be able to allow you to enter the event without verifying residency. No guests will be permitted.

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 email sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com. Hope to see you all there!

Artificial Turf

The San Elijo Hills Community Association Board of Directors is aware that Governor Brown has signed emergency legislation (AB 349) restricting Associations from prohibiting the use of artificial turf or any other synthetic surface that resembles grass. Bill AB 340 does not prohibit an Association from applying landscaping rules, so long as the rules fully conform to restrictions in Civil Code 4735(a).

The Board is currently in the process of creating a proposed policy, which will be provided to the membership and formally adopted after the review and comment period in accordance with California Civil Code 1357.130.

We appreciate your patience and understanding while the Board of Directors creates a policy that incorporates the synthetic material while maintaining a certain level of aesthetics and consistency in the community.

Double Peak Park Hours

As a reminder to residents, Double Peak Park is closed at dusk and persons in the parking lot and behind the lower gate will be cited by the Sheriff. Please be courteous and refrain from entering this area after the park is closed, which often disturbs the residents nearby.

Address Numbers

Clear and visible address numbers are important when it comes to safety. Please check your address numbers and replace any faded or missing numbers. This is a safety concern, which could potentially delay first responders in an emergency response. It also impacts the general aesthetics of the community and is part of the required maintenance per the Governing Documents.

Yard Maintenance

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

Did you know that there are many great alternatives to grass? Why not consider gardening with sustainable landscape that benefits the environment. There are trees, shrubs, ground covers, grasses and wildflowers that are already well-adapted to the environment in our region. They will reduce the use of fertilizers, pesticides, watering and maintenance. Native and non-native species can be interspersed to add variety and color. Plant using multiple layers or mixed borders. Trees, shrubs and flowers can be planted in layers which successively shade each other, requiring less water. Plantings should be closely spaced to discourage weeds from sprouting.

Consider mulch! The first line of defense against hot weather, and against windy conditions which can dry surface soil, is to apply a liberal layer of mulch around the plants. This protects the soil from direct sun exposure, keeping it moist at the surface. Mulch also reduces evaporation of water from the soil which reduces the need for watering.

If you are interested in modifying your current design, please remember that you must submit the necessary application and plans for review and approval by the Architectural Committee. Please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-9015 with any questions.
