By: Brett Gottlieb, Resident of San Elijo Hills & President of San Elijo Hills Foundation
As the President of the San Elijo Hills Foundation, I feel it is important for our community to be aware of the different entities that brought about San Elijo Hills and continue to provide services to our community. Sometimes it can be a challenge to know which entity is responsible for which services. There are three organizations that often get confused – San Elijo Hills Development Company, San Elijo Hills Foundation and the San Elijo Hills Homeowners Association.
I’ve learned a lot about the different roles of these three organizations while serving on the board of the San Elijo Hills Foundation and as a board we felt it might be beneficial to share a little bit about these organizations and what roles they each play here in SHARE.
This month, we would like to focus on the role our Homeowner’s Association and how Walters Management helps to make our community work effectively.
San Elijo Hills Homeowners Association
The Association is governed by a five member Board of Directors and was created to provide service to members in three basic areas:
- Enforce the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) created for the community. The enforcement areas most often encountered are the use restrictions and architectural control.
- Maintain the common areas.
- Build community spirit by providing activities for the residents (Concerts, Oktoberfest, Tree Lighting, Independence Day Celebration and Easter Egg Hunt).
Walters Management works at the direction of the San Elijo Hills Homeowners Association Board of Directors to assist with the day-to-day operations and management of the community. They receive and respond to homeowner communications; forward pertinent information to the Board of Directors; conduct regular visits to the community; maintain the Assocation records; and assist with the management of community service providers, such as the landscape maintenance contractor. Walters Management does not own any property within the Association and does not contract directly with the service providers.
You can contact Walters Management to report a problem with the maintenance of Common Areas. However, items not under the jurisdiction of the Association (i.e. public streets, parks and the community schools) should go to the appropriate city agency. If you are unsure who to contact, the management company will try to send you in the right direction.
