Do you want to transform the closed golf course into a usable community space?

Write a Letter Supporting The Trails!

For the remainder of 2020, project plans for The Trails will undergo multiple rounds of technical review with city planners and technical experts and be presented to San Diego City Councilmembers for project approval in early 2021. In the meantime, as part of our outreach efforts, we will continue to send our regular email updates and provide updates to the CMR/SS Community Council (Community Planning Group).

We need your support! Because The Trails is not yet approved by the City, it is important that our Planning Commissioners and City Councilmembers hear from you. If you support the vision for a more connected CMR and support bringing attainably-priced and Affordable homes to San Diego, please consider writing a support letter and we will forward it to the City on your behalf. We sincerely thank you for your support.

The plan for The Trails represents an innovative community-enriching approach towards transforming a defunct golf course into a celebrated community asset that better serves Carmel Mountain Ranch.


Through preserved open space, new publicly-accessible outdoor amenities, Affordable and attainably-priced homes, and improved connectivity to surrounding businesses, shops, restaurants, and the MTS Rancho Peñasquitos Transit Center, The Trails will celebrate the beauty of CMR while creating new opportunities to enjoy with family and friends.


The Trails will bring new amenities and connections for CMR residents:

  • 110+ acres preserved as open space
    (approximately 70% of the former golf course will be
    dedicated to parks, trails, and natural open space)

  • New area parks, including outdoor seating areas, kids' discovery play areas, and a dog park

  • All amenities are provided at no cost to current residents

  • Add 1,200 new homes with inclusive housing options - all 100% EV-Powered and Solar-Ready

  • 400+ new trees planted

  • 30 acres of native plant restoration

  • 6+ miles of new protected pedestrian and bicycle pathways

  • 50-ft minimum landscaped buffer between new & existing homes

  • Located within a Transit Priority Area
