Plants
  • Our HOA does not own the "Common Areas", the adjacent homeowners own the slopes.
  • Want to share a concern about our neighborhood? Please contact Landmark Business Services or attend the next HOA board meeting.

~ Slope Plants ~
Plants
2013 - The HOA board recently voted to begin alternative ways to save water and money by replanting small areas of the slopes. These plants were approved by the board and recommended by a native plant consultant. There are 4 varieties. All are particularly well suited for slopes/erosion, are fire resistant, low growing, evergreen with blooms 1-2 times per year, and most important, drought tolerant.
  • Ceanothus Carmel Creeper
  • Bacchari's Pigeon Point
  • Arctostaphylos Pacific Mist
  • Arctostaphylos Carmel Sur

For added safety, remove any personal data from your phone before collection. Used batteries accepted for collection are AA, AAA, C, D, 9-volt, Alkaline, Rechargeable, Lithium and coin cells and small button-size.

Residents may now add polystyrene packaging to the list of what they can recycle. Polystyrene items include packaging, cups, food containers, and similar items.

~ Coyotes ~
Coyote
From the Del Mar Times 1/13:

      Reports have recently been made of coyote sightings in Solana Beach, and mountain lion and coyote sightings in Rancho Santa Fe.
      “These animals are native to the area and can be attracted around homes by leaving pet food out, the presence of small pets, etc. State Fish and Game warn people to not leave food or pets outside and keep a close eye on small children, especially during early morning or late afternoon times,” Rancho Santa Fe Patrol Chief Matt Wellhouser said. “In addition, do not jog, bike or hike alone; do not approach a coyote, bobcat, or mountain lion. Sometimes the attraction of smaller wild animals attracts the bigger animals as well.
      “These animals are most active at dawn, dusk and at night. Often deer are attracted to the area because of food sources, same with opossums, raccoons, and other prey. These animals are often prey for larger animals.”
      Please take precautions to avoid coming in contact with these animals, Wellhouser said. Below are referral numbers you can call for more information. Refer to the websites below. Fish and game would like to know of sightings to track the activity.
