PQ-NE Action Group & Rancho Penasquitos ~



You can still Sign PQ-NE Action Group's SAFETY BEFORE DEVELOPMENT Petition - We, the undersigned, are opposed to the development of the former Doubletree Golf Course/Designated Open Space that reduces the public health and safety in the surrounding community, and contributes to what are already unsafe conditions. The adjacent community in northeast Rancho Penasquitos (also known as The Glens) of 1,500 + living units and an elementary school is surrounded by Black Mountain Open Space Park which includes landmark hillsides characterized by rugged terrain of highly flammable indigenous vegetation which has been designated by the city of San Diego as a “Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone." This area has a history of recent fires that have led to mandatory whole-community evacuations – three (3) in recent memory. The community is uniquely and minimally served by Penasquitos Drive, a single lane out of the neighborhood to evacuate all 1,214+ homes, 224 apartment units, 64 townhomes and the students and staff of Rolling Hills Elementary School, and one lane in for emergency responders/Fire Trucks and school buses needed to evacuate the school in the event of another wildland fire or similar emergency. The addition of the proposed 500+ homes, directly into the evacuation queue, would significantly reduce the performance of the only emergency evacuation route. Adding 500+ homes into a single route serving 1,500+ living units will greatly endanger the existing residents in the community and the students and staff at the elementary school. Please sign our petition and comment.


If you would like to sign a paper copy of the petition and/or gather additional signatures from your family, neighbors and friends, please download a copy here. Signed petitions should be returned to PQ-NE Action Group as soon as possible - please email to make arrangements.



Note - We may still have some SAFETY BEFORE DEVELOPMENT red t-shirt’s available if you’re interested in wearing one to upcoming Planning Board meetings to visually show your opposition to the Junipers Project - just email us with your name, address, contact info and size request.
