Just southwest of San Elijo Hills Towncenter, east of Old Creek Ranch, is a little known gem of a property now known as Copper Hills. You may have hiked or biked from the old recycling center gates on this property on your way to Copper Creek trailheads or the old Copper mines southwest of San Elijo.
The property is currently located in the jurisdiction of the County of San Diego, but has been in the sphere of influence of San Marcos since 1988, and will be annexed into the City of San Marcos. This will give us in San Elijo a voice in the proposed uses for the site. While most of it will remain in open space, portions will be developed into quality residential and commercial uses as well as park space and recreational opportunities. This is the last section along San Elijo Road that can fulfill some of the needs of the community that have been missing. Potential uses include community gathering facilities, trail access and parking, green space, a Boys and Girls Club including a teen center, kids camps, a skate park, outdoor basketball/tennis courts, community pools, congregate care for seniors, office, family restaurants and breweries as well as a top notch residential community by respected high-end builder ColRich Communities, who has built some beautiful communities in San Elijo and Old Creek Ranch.
The developer is aware of local traffic concerns and while the elementary school will be Carillo, they understand school impact concerns and will be addressing those with the public’s involvement. Your direct input to the developer is much appreciated. The Bieri Company, who has owned the property since 2003, has been working in San Marcos since the 1980’s. Local land planning firm Consultants Collaborative Inc (CCI) has been involved from the beginning and both principals live in San Elijo Hills. All three firms involved are local and family owned.
