Pet Dropping Clean Up…. Please!
Out of common decency and respect for your neighbors, (not to mention the fact it is in the CC&Rs and the San Marcos City Municipal Code) please pick up after your pets! Droppings have been found in yards, on sidewalks, as well as common areas and streets. An old newspaper bag or trash sack works easily for pick up and disposing of the droppings. Please take a bag along with you when you walk your pet.

Show your pride in homeownership and trim your trees and shrubs so that people may enjoy walking around our neighborhood. Note all large trees need to have a minimum of 6ft. of clearance. Remove or cut back all foliage, which is covering the sidewalks. Please, remove weeds, leaves and trash in your sections by the sidewalk and parking areas.
