We are once again the fastest growing city in Riverside County. And, for the second time in six years the third fastest growing City in the entire State. We have survived the great economic recession and are leading the way with more new jobs, new homes, new recreational amenities and a new title: “The Action Sports Capital of the World.” We have an adventurous heritage; Speed boat racing started here in the 1920’s, the National Sailplane competitions and Skydiving events were held here in the 1950’s and our World Famous Grand Prix Motorcycle race began here in 1968 with folks like Steve McQueen & Malcolm Smith racing thru our town. In the 1980’s we celebrated Frontier Days with an annual rodeo and 20 years ago we welcomed a professional baseball team to the valley as we broke ground on the Diamond Stadium. As the new century began, we saw an explosion of recreational opportunities and professional sports venues complementing the stadium and our unique natural resources: The Links at Summerly Golf Course, the Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, where the AMA Motocross Nationals compete each year along with the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series. Skylark Airport continues to thrive offering parachuting, sailplane riding and wing suit lessons weekly. The National Jet Boats races held right here in Competition Channel and International Fishing Journalists Ronnie Kovach and George Kramer pull record-setting Striped Bass out of our lake. We offer our residents and businesses much more than just a place to call home. Where else can you enjoy world class skydiving, high-speed boating, tournament golfing, state-of-the-art motocross racing, record-setting fishing and much more all in one day, in one place? We offer unique action sports and recreational opportunities that make our City a one-of-kind place to live. As the signs of recovery are everywhere around us, it is our time to prepare and embrace the opportunities before us on behalf our residents, businesses and the community. This is our chance to get things right and ensure responsible and positive community development as we continue our efforts toward becoming - the ultimate lake destination where all can live, work, play, build futures and fulfill dreams. In the coming pages, you will learn about the many recreational activities and events available for you and your family this fall and winter. We look forward to seeing you at many of these events. We wish you a safe and joyous holiday season and a Happy New Year! Sincerely, City of Lake Elsinore Mayor and City Council

Cooking brings family and friends together, provides an outlet for creativity and can be relaxing. But did you know that cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home injuries? If you have a cooking fire... » Just get out! When you leave, close the door behind you to help contain the fire. » Call 911 » If you try to fight the fire, be sure others are getting out and you have a clear way out. » Keep a lid nearby when you’re cooking to smother small grease fires. Smother the fire by sliding the lid over the pan and turn off the stove top. Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled. » For an oven fire, turn off the heat, and keep the door closed.

As we enter the rainy season (October - May) it is critical to remember that areas of the City of Lake Elsinore, are subject to flooding during heavy rain events from the lake or any of the many channels and streams that can be found in the City. The most recent flooding took place in the early to mid 1980’s. The Lake Elsinore Management Project, constructed between 1988 and 1995, was designed to conserve water, improve water quality and reduce flood risk.

DID YOU KNOW.... • The areas in the City next to Temescal Creek, the outflow & inflow channels, and the area around the lake bordered by Riverside Drive, Lakeshore Drive, Mission Trail/Corydon Road and Grand Avenue are areas with a known potential for flooding. • Upon request, the Engineering Division at (951) 674-3124 will make free flood zone determinations for properties within the City. FEMA maps are also available online at their Map Service Center at http://gis1.msc.fema.gov/Website/newstore/Viewer.htm. • The Engineering Division has elevation certificates for many properties within the city; they are available for review at the City’s website or at City Hall. • Flooding is not covered by a standard homeowner’s insurance policy. A separate flood insurance policy is required. • The City participates in the National Flood Insurance Program that makes available federally backed flood insurance for all structures. Contact your insurance agent for information. There is a 30-day waiting period before coverage goes into effect. • City of Lake Elsinore residents receive a discount on flood insurance. YOU CAN HELP MINIMIZE FLOOD DAMAGE.... • Brochures discussing flood proofing and other helpful measures are available at the Library, and City’s and FEMA’s website. • Sandbag areas that would allow the entry of water into living spaces. The City of Lake Elsinore Public Works Department (521 N. Langstaﬀ) has free sandbagging materials. • Valuables and furniture may also be moved to higher areas of the dwelling. • Maintain the drainage in your area by removing or reporting obstructions (such as shopping carts, leaves, trash, etc.). • To report obstructions or illegal dumping call (951) 674-3124 ext. 241, or for questions regarding drainage system maintenance, please contact Public Works Maintenance at (951) 674-5170. • City ordinance states it is illegal to dump trash, leaves, landscape debris, paint, grease or any other material into any portion of the City’s drainage system, such dumping can have devastating impacts on water quality and cause flooding. • Keep non-perishable food, water, batteries, flashlights, a manual can opener and a battery operated radio available. • If your property is in imminent danger of flooding, please contact SCE at (800) 655-4555 or the Gas Company at (800) 427-2200 to request that your power and gas be shut off, or for guidance on how to do it yourself.

Stormwater Pollution, what you should know........ Many City residents are unaware of the storm water pollution problem (polluted runoff) and don’t realize that storm drains connect to the local waterways, so whatever ends up in the storm drains flows directly - untreated - to our rivers, lakes, and streams. A June 14, 2013 article in the “Press Enterprise” provides details about the impacts of pollutants to the Lake and the efforts being made by the City and local agencies to reduce the pollutant levels. What can you do? Throughout the dry part of the year, pollutants such as motor oil, antifreeze, trash, pet waste and grease accumulate on streets and parking lots. When rain finally does fall, the rain water carries these pollutants into the storm drain. Even common activities such as over watering lawns and landscaped areas, car washing and hosing down driveways or pet waste droppings cause pollutants to make their way into the storm drain. Before you throw something away or clean outside areas, ask yourself, Will the waste end up in the storm drain? If the answer is yes, we recommend you: • Use dry (sweep, vacuum, rags ) clean up methods, • Wash over or direct water runoﬀ to landscape/grassy areas, • Use biodegradeable cleaners, and • Dispose of cleaners, paints, yard care products, household chemicals at the City Household Hazardous Waste drop-oﬀ, call (951) 674-5170 for the schedule or visit www.lake-elsinore.org public works department web page for dates. More helpful hints and information is available quarterly by subscribing to our FREE E-NEWSLETTER at http://rcflood.org/stormwater/.
Flood Safety for Fall and Winter.... Did you know, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) mapping identifies several areas in the City as Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs). These are areas that during the rainy season, October through April, have a 1% chance of flooding in any year (aka 100-year-flood). Did you know, you can take action to reduce your property and financial loss due to flooding. In the City’s Spring/Summer Activity Guide (available at www.lake-elsinore.org, news rack), we listed changes to your property you could make that help water move away from your home to the street and storm drains. Flood insurance is another option available for all residents. For many, a home and its contents are their greatest investment. According to FEMA, there is a 26% chance of experiencing a flood over the life of a 30 year mortgage. It is important to realize that standard homeowner and renter insurance policies do not cover losses due to flooding. As part of the City’s ongoing eﬀort to reduce flood losses, aid in accurate insurance rating, and promote awareness of eﬀort to reduce flood losses, aid in accurate insurance rating, and promote awareness of flood insurance, the City of Lake Elsinore joined the FEMA National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP), Community Rating System (CRS). More details about the CRS program are available online at www.fema.gov/business/nfip/crs.shtm. The City’s current rating qualifies residents of Lake Elsinore for a 5% discount in the premium cost of flood insurance for NFIP policies issued or renewed in SFHA’s on or after October 1, 2009. You are encouraged to buy flood insurance - whether or not your home is located within the SFHA. Call your insurance agent, lender, or the National Flood Insurance Program at (888) 379-9531 or visit their website at www.floodsmart.gov. There is a 30 day waiting period before coverage goes into effect so don’t delay, call today!
