PQ-NE Action Group & Rancho Penasquitos ~

There are now two urgent meetings you should attend on April 18, 2018 where the redevelopment of the golf course property will be discussed. Please click on the image below and read the revised flyer for more info. The City scheduled the Scoping Meeting for the same night as our previously scheduled community meeting.

The Scoping Meeting Notice can be found at 586670 NOP EIR Date 4-10-18.pdf. It will give you information about what environmental issues the City of San Diego is reviewing and that will be included in the Junipers Project Environmental document.

If you have concerns about these and other environmental impacts/issues please attend the Scoping Meeting, fill out a speaker slip and tell Development Services Dept. staff your concerns. If you cannot attend, the letter states other ways you can submit your concerns. They have also provided a form for you to use for your comments. NOTE: All comments must be submitted to the City during the Public comment period which ends May 10, 2018.

The PQ-NE Action will hold our neighborhood meeting as scheduled and hope you join us. We will share the results of our recent survey and discuss a plan to fight proposed UNSAFE DEVELOPMENT of one of our few remaining OPEN SPACES!

Feel free to print the flyer and share with your neighbors and friends.

  PQ-NE Action Group has set up an ONLINE SURVEY to gather your input on the proposed redevelopment of the DoubleTree Golf Course land into housing. Please take a few minutes to answer 9 multiple choice questions as soon as possible. The proposed housing  project is currently under review with the City Planning Department but no decision has been made yet on whether to approve it. A lot is at stake for our existing community and your input is important. Thank you in advance for your participation.

Watch PQ Glens resident Joe Pierzina's interview with CBS news about the proposed development in our neighborhood.

We asked Joe for a comment and here's his response: "I really wished the CBS News 8 report had spent some time covering the serious fire safety issues I explained to them during the interview. My concerns are not just about the loss of open space but how development here will greatly endanger hundreds of people in the neighborhood when it comes to a wild fire evacuation or other types of emergencies. Safety before Development should be a priority before anyone builds on this open space!"  Local golf courses prime properties for housing redevelopment,  2/1/2018.

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.
