During the quarantine, use of the walking path by residents from other neighborhoods within Palomar Hills has significantly increased. Some people are using the townhome green space to exit the walking path as a cut-through.
This is a reminder that the walking path is for all members of Palomar Hills, HOWEVER, only sidewalks should be used for ingress and egress to and from the walking path. The green space off the path on all sides are owner’s yards. One side of the walking path are yards of single-family homes and even though the townhome side is maintained by the association, those areas are also private yards owned by townhome owners.
Also, it is the responsibility of pet owners to clean up pet droppings in the townhome yards just like they would in any other private residents yards. This has been a major problem with members using the walking path to walk their dogs.
Finally, bicyclists are sometimes flying down the walking path which could create a danger. If people use bikes on the walking path, they should use lower speeds and be cautious. They should also be courteous to those that are walking on the path.
