has asked to be on the Rancho Peñasquitos Planning Board's Land Use Committee
(LUC) Meeting agenda on April 5th at 6:30pm in the Del Mar Room (Sandpiper Room). Per the Comittee Chair, they will be
presenting the materials they shared at the Open House on March 15th. The
community will have a chance to ask questions and voice their opinion on
33North's vision for the golf course property.
33 NORTH RELEASE THEIR PLANS FOR THE
FORMER DOUBLE TREE GOLF COURSE PROPERTY
33 North hosted an
open house at the Hotel Karlan on March 15th to unveil their preliminary plans
for the former Double Tree golf course property. Although not much detail was
provided, their vision centered around a 55+ age qualified community of up to
570 single and two-story homes. PQ-NE ACTION GROUP IS FIRMLY OPPOSED TO THIS
View the plans:
The draft proposal
provided only one way out of the development; all traffic would be dumped on to
Penasquitos Drive at Janal Way via a traffic light from the development on a new
road that would replace the current tennis courts. In addition, 33 North is
proposing access into this new community from a new road that would be
constructed between the 15 freeway off-ramp and Penasquitos Drive directly off
Carmel Mountain Road.
This plan could have
a devastating effect on our community and we have serious concerns regarding
public safety. Remember the traffic jams during the evacuation of the 2007 Witch
Fire? Now consider an emergency scenario with an additional 570 households from
this development, an additional 300 households (for a total of 600 households)
from the new Villages development proposal, and the additional units at Cresta
Bella all trying to leave the neighborhood at the same time! It would also have
a dramatic effect on your daily commute. The currently proposed two projects for
North Penasquitos would increase the total number of privately owned homes/townhomes
in the North Penasquitos by approximately 57%!
