I keep hearing people say, about the Escondido Country Club situation, that they still don't know what the locals really want. They think we are all holding out for a return of the golf course business.
Unless you just flew in from Mars, everybody in the City of Escondido knows what the Country Club community wants. Let's review what we do know…
Citizens have offered NUW massive amounts of written suggestions about how they can recapture the resort-like nature of our tortured community. The problem is that the property owner will not budge on his declaration that he will never allow anything other than homes to be built on his property.
As for the latest "The Villages" plan itself, all you have to do is look at the demographic of the existing community to know that this plan is incongruous with the character of the Country Club neighborhood.
The new plan is nearly all two-story homes. There are very few 2 story homes in our community. Why? Because the Country Club community was never designed to attract first time buyers and young families. But that is what NUW has stated is their target market! "The Villages" plan tries to reconfigure the 50 year legacy, the intent and fundamental design of the existing community.
Beyond that, "The Villages" plan is drastically deficient.
The oft repeated lie that no one knows what the community wants is 'fake news'.
