Welcome!

Brian Tisdale Mayor

s the weather warms and the long sunny days of summer approach, we look forward to a variety of outdoor activities that are available to us in Lake Elsinore. The City will be providing programs and events at locations throughout the community this spring and summer.

In April, the Unity in the Community Walk/Run will take place on the levee. Come out with your family and friends for an early morning walk or compete in the 5k or 10k run. You might even win a medal! Staging for the event will be at the Diamond Stadium. The “Clean Extreme” program started in January and the response to this program has been overwhelming. This positive response from the community made the first clean-up event at the Naval Academy and surrounding areas a huge success. There were over 300 community volunteers that participated. Church groups, service organizations, scout troops, students and businesses from the community came together to volunteer their time to improve the appearance of Lake Elsinore. Future clean-up events are being planned for later this year, contact the City Manager’s office at 674-3124 ext. 204 if you would like to get involved.

Along with summer will come the completion of several new projects in the City. The Canyon Hills Community Park will open this summer. This new park will boast a water splash area for children, lit baseball fields, soccer fields, a trail system, a basketball court, picnic areas and an open turf area. The new boat launch project will be completed and be open for business this summer. This $8 million facility will have six boat launch lanes, two 400 feet courtesy docks, a 270 space parking lot, a fish cleaning station and a great view of the lake!

I hope you will use this Activity Guide to find out what is going on in Lake Elsinore. I encourage you to visit your local parks, take a stroll on the levee, spend a day on the lake, then take in a baseball game with the California League Champions and enjoy the amenities that are all around you. Enjoy the beauty of Lake Elsinore.

Pottery Court is a 113 unit housing development under construction in the Downtown area, which will be completed this summer. This new residential project is located adjacent to the Downtown Riverwalk, which extends from the Swick and Matich Park at the lake edge to Riverside Drive.

Sincerely, Brian Tisdale, Mayor

The economy seems to be rolling along with signs of recovery everywhere. We want to keep that momentum building right here in Lake Elsinore, so don’t forget that keeping your dollars local means more dollars hard at work for YOU! We can keep jobs in our community if we all support small business and chain retailers right here. Keeping our tax dollars local means we help to keep our City moving forward. You’ll see a healthy return on your investment when you see storefronts occupied and realize your neighbors are back to work!

Volunteers are needed to assist with special events and regular activities around our City. If you’d like to become a volunteer to earn community service hours or want to lend a hand in a more meaningful way; contact our volunteer coordinator and we’ll match the volunteer to the right assignment. You can check out the City’s website for volunteer positions available. For general information call (951) 674-3124 ext 290.

COMMUNITY INFORMATION Pet Adoption and Services Take a trip to the new Southwest Animal Shelter now servicing the City of Lake Elsinore, located at 33751 Mission Trail in Wildomar. Services at the shelter includes pet licensing, housing strays, reuniting lost pets with owners, low cost vaccinations and pet adoptions. Visit their web site at www. animalfriendsofthevalleys.com for fees and pet services available in your community. Low cost vaccinations are available on the third Saturday of each month at City Park in Lake Elsinore located at 243 Main Street from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Pet owners can get vaccinations, licenses and micro chips to protect their pets. Please all cats in carriers and dogs on leashes. Dates: Mar 17, Apr 21, May 19 and June 16.

Reunite With Your Lost Loved Ones! License your pet to enable their return back home. If a good samaritan brings your pet to the shelter, and the animal is wearing its license tag, you can be contacted right away. When an Animal Control Officer finds your lost pet in the neighborhood, the Officer may be able to bring your pet right home if identified by a license. If your pet is found injured and wearing its license, Animal Control Officers will obtain emergency medical attention and contact the owner. If your pet is impounded and licensed, then the impound fees are much less compared to an unlicensed animal. Buying a license for your dog or cat isn’t just the law – it can save your pet’s life. Visit www. animalfriendsofthevalleys.com or call (951) 471-8344 for more information. State laws and City ordinances mandate that all dogs be vaccinated against rabies and licensed at the age of four months or within thirty days of moving into a city. The City of Lake Elsinore also requires that all cats be licensed. Licensing Fees Are Lower For an Altered Pet! Spaying or neutering can save you money on pet licensing fees. Spaying or neutering also prevents certain cancers and diseases, and can help your pets live longer, healthier lives. Licensing fees are much higher for unaltered pets because they are usually the unclaimed strays, involved in more bites or hit by cars, contribute to the pet over-population, and cause the majority of shelter expenses.

COMMUNITY INFORMATION

Did you know, Lake Elsinore is the largest natural lake in Southern California and adjacent to the lake you’ll find streams, wetlands, FEMA and channels in the City that are natural beneficial low-lying areas know as floodplains and floodways. The City and other local FLOOD agencies work to maintain and preserve these areas; they are SAFETY used to discharge and contain flood waters and have a one-in-100 chance of becoming flooded in any year (100 year). Sources of flooding include Arroyo del Toro, Channel H, Elsinore Spillway, Leach Canyon, and Lime Street Channels, Lake Elsinore, McVicker Canyon, Ortega Wash and Channel, Rice Canyon, San Jacinto River, Temescal Wash, Stovepipe Canyon Creek, Murrieta Creek and Wasson Canyon Creek. The City is always looking for ways to help prevent flood damage and the last 100-year flooding events occurred in the early to mid 1980s. After those events, FEMA conducted mapping to help identify the areas in the City prone to flooding; these areas are know as Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA’s) as shown on the map. In the early 1990’s, the City, United States Army Corps of Engineers and other local agencies teamed together to construct improvements to the Lake designed to conserve water, improve water quality and reduce flood risk. The City has also adopted Zoning and Regulatory Ordinances that require review of development projects for compliance with City, State and Federal floodplain regulations prior to grading and building permit issuance. These regulations include enforcement of FEMA’s substantial damage rule which states: “…if the cost necessary to fully repair the structure to its before damage condition is equal to or greater than 50% of the structure’s market value before damages, then the structure must be elevated (or flood-proofed if it is non-residential) to or above the Base Flood Elevation…” (FEMA’s Increased Cost of Compliance (ICC) program helps pay for the repair!), prohibiting import of dirt and requiring a minimum ground floor elevation of 1267 feet for structures in the area around the lake and requiring the ground floor elevation of 2 feet above the flood elevation for all other properties in FEMA mapped SFHA’s. For help in determining if your property is in a FEMA Special Flood Hazard Area or for more information on flood zones/ flooding, visit the City’s web site at www.lake-elsinore. org or contact the City Engineering Division at 951674-3124 x241.

LAKE INFORMATION Saturday, April 7th, 2012 Free Lake Use! The Lake is open seven days a week from sunrise to sunset, and is open for boats, personal watercraft and non-motorized vessels. All vessels must have current registration and be safe for operation. For information on lake rules and regulations, including new laws that apply, please obtain the brochure entitled “Lake Use Regulations”, available in the lobby of City Hall, or your local boat launch facility.

The Lake Elsinore Recreation Area & Campground overlooks the beautiful waters of Lake Elsinore and the picturesque Ortega Mountains. A six-lane, 270 parking spaces, and two 400-foot long floating docks are currently being constructed at the site, located at 32040 Riverside Drive. The new boat ramp will enable boats to be launched at a wide range of Lake elevations, from 1,235’ to 1, 255’ above mean sea level, and will remain usable year round. In addition to the launch, the project includes the creation of an adjacent picnic area, fish-cleaning station, and restrooms. This project is being funded with a grant from the State Department of Boating & Waterways, Redevelopment funds and money earmarked for park improvements. The $8.3 million investment will pave the way for development of the City Campground and the City expects to issue an RFP for campground improvements in the near future. This development will benefit everyone coming to enjoy the bountiful recreation offerings of Lake Elsinore and will bring new tourism dollars into the City for years to come.

Be water-wise by following these Lake safety tips: 1.

DANGER! Sudden drop offs, hidden underwater hazards. The low water clarity of Lake Elsinore may hide hazards. DANGER! No Diving. Headfirst entries into shallow water cause about 850 catastrophic neck/head/spinal injuries each year in the U.S. Most occur from diving into shallow open water areas. WARNING! No swimming permitted from public property! Wading waist deep is permitted at designated beaches. WARNING! Watch your children! All children should be accompanied by an adult at all times near the water. Keep small children within arms reach. CAUTION! Water & Alcohol Do Not Mix! Alcohol consumption is often linked to drowning, diving injuries, boating accidents and lack of supervision over children. Think before you drink!


Largemouth Bass are the lion of freshwater fish. This spring the City is stocking 700 pounds of adults, 1,667 juveniles (10-12”), and 5,000 fingerlings (4-6”) Largemouth Bass into Lake Elsinore. In total, that’s over 7,000 Largemouth Bass stocked. Be sure to fish Lake Elsinore this summer to land these beauties. This aggressive predator can be tempted to strike at practically any kind of bait, either artificial or natural. Spinners, spoons, crankbaits, surface plugs, and plastic worms are particularly effective. Fishing Regulations for Largemouth Bass requires “keepers” to have a total length of at least 12 inches and a bag limit of five per day. The local bass clubs recommend practicing “Catch & Release”. Releasing the smaller fish today increases the chance of catching more and larger fish in the future.

DON’T MOVE A MUSSEL!

Quagga/zebra mussels

ruin boats and destroy waters DON’T LET THEM RIDE WITH don’t let them rideYOU! with you! Quagga/zebra mussels in California waters could result in an environmental and economic disaster. They can cause a shift in native species and disrupt the ecological balance of entire bodies of water. The mussels clog water pipes, coat piers, and ruin boat motors. Transferring a boat from an infested water to another water could spread the mussels.

QUAGGA/ZEBRA MUSSELS ALERT! Lake Elsinore is not infested with the quagga mussel and we need the public’s help to keep the lake free of this invasive species! Please inspect your boat before launching. Do not launch your boat in the lake if you discover quagga mussels

STOP THEM! YOU YOU CANCAN STOP THEM!
