Blog

Thanks for checking out our blog. One of our core values as a company is to be as transparent as we can as we navigate the land use planning process. We understand that there will be a lot of questions so we've set up opportunities for you to participate and have your concerns heard.


This blog is one way we plan on giving project updates. We're open to suggestions for future topics you would like to have us address in blog posts too, so please email us if you have a request.

RPPB Land Use Committee Update
by 33ndg on 

Thank you to the Rancho Peñasquitos Planning Board Land Use Committee for giving us the opportunity to present on Wednesday (4/5) night. Jeff presented on our preliminary vision, our community outreach so far, the City of San Diego Initiation process, and our Community Plan Amendment Initiation Request. We appreciate those of you who attended and asked questions.


We have submitted our Initiation request letter to City officials and anticipate returning to the Land Use Committee and to the entire Rancho Peñasquitos Planning Board on May 3rd for its recommendation.


Jeff and Max continue to remain committed to meeting with any of our neighbors one-on-one or in small groups to hear their comments and concerns. If you're interested in being part of the conversation, we encourage you to contact us.  


As discussed on Wednesday, the Initiation process allows the City and the public the chance to provide input and to identify issues that require further analysis. This input will allow us to prepare a comprehensive land use plan that more closely addresses the ideas and concerns of our neighbors.

Thank you to everyone who attended our community Open House last night (3/15). We had nearly 100 neighbors join us to learn more about our preliminary vision. We are so appreciative of your time and engagement. Click here to download materials and see photos from the event. 


As we work towards Initiation, we are committed to continuing our community outreach. If you would like to meet one-on-one or set up a small group meeting, please contact us.

Open House Reminder
by 33ndg on 

Don’t forget to join us on March 15 for our Open House at the Hotel Karlan in the Fairbanks Room, next to the Asado Grill. There will be no formal presentation so you can feel free to stop by any time from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. We’ll be answering questions about our process and unveiling our preliminary vision.


In addition, please bring your ideas to include on our Vision Board. You can bring magazine clippings of architecture, amenities, parks, landscaping, or other ideas you’d like to see incorporated. We’ll be reviewing the submitted suggestions to determine what we might be able to incorporate into our plan.

Dear Neighbor
by 33ndg on 

Our second direct mail letter is being delivered this week to nearly 1,000 residents in the Glens. The letter outlines what we’ve learned thus far through our community outreach and invites you to our upcoming community Open House on March 15.


The letter also includes a snap shot of our preliminary vision, which will be unveiling in more detail at the Open House. It’s posted here in case you missed it.

Soil Boring
by 33ndg on 

Some of our closest neighbors may have noticed a rather large drilling rig on site. No, we weren’t drilling for oil…      

 

We’ve commissioned a study to explore and analyze the underlying soil conditions.  The drilling rig was used to complete the field portion of the investigation which included the excavation and logging of twenty-five large-diameter borings and nine exploratory trenches. The depth of the borings ranged from ten to seventy-five feet below the ground surface. The trenches ranged from ten to fifteen feet below the ground surface.

 

The next phase of our study consists of laboratory testing of the soil samples collected from the borings and trenches.  The soil samples will be analyzed to inform us about the physical properties of the geologic formations below ground on our property.   Knowing what lies below ground is a very important part of the land use planning process.

Traffic Counts Study
by 33ndg on 

In response to your comments, a traffic study is in process.

We have engaged a well-respected, local traffic engineering firm to conduct traffic counts to learn as much as we can about existing traffic volumes and patterns along key intersections. The data was collected on weekdays during the week of December 5th.  The data and conclusions of the traffic engineering firm will be used to evaluate options for site access and will help inform our plans for the use of our property.

Demo Day

As part of our on-going efforts to promote safety, we removed the former bathroom structure earlier this week after discovering evidence that it’d been used as housing by trespassers.

We hope everyone enjoyed a safe and Happy Halloween! Our team is hard at work maintaining the brush and has extended its efforts beyond the fence boundary. Check out the photos below to see what we've been up to.

Housekeeping
by 33ndg on 

Maintaining 114 acres is no small feat. To make sure we’re good neighbors, we’ll be providing property updates in addition to plan updates.


  • Brush Mitigation - Removing hazardous brush was one of the first tasks we took on when we bought the property in late-July. Finding the right vendor to get the job was difficult since it was a bit of a weed jungle. But we got a great crew out there – It took the team roughly 1 hour per acre! Thank you for your patience as we worked through the conditions that we inherited.

  • We heard that there was a concern about the weeds outside our temporary perimeter fence. This week, the same crew will be doing more weed-whacking between the temporary perimeter fence and our neighbors’ yards. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

 

  • Geotechnical Exploration (GTE) - You might have noticed a little action out there last week. We had a GTE team out there to accurately locate underground utilities.  In the next month, the GTE team will digging more holes to fully study the deep, underlying soil conditions.
