Write a Support Letter for The Trails!

The Trails at Carmel Mountain Ranch is planned to be presented to the City of San Diego in Summer 2021. It is important that our City's Planning Commissioners and Councilmembers hear directly from you as they consider the project.


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!

I support The Trails at Carmel Mountain Ranch.  This project provides 1,200 new homes that are desperately needed in San Diego. These homes are designed with families, young professionals and first-time buyers in mind.  The project thoughtfully planned the location of these homes close to transit and jobs.  This is a good plan to bring much-needed homes to the area. Please vote yes on the Trails at Carmel Mountain Ranch.

The Trails at Carmel Mountain Ranch is preserving over 110 acres of open space for the whole community to use.  Currently, there is no other project like this that would connect existing neighbors through a trail network to parks, recreation, retail, and jobs. This is a great benefit to the Carmel Mountain Ranch community and it would be a shame to continue to let this land remain fallow and unusable.  Please support the Trails to provide public access to this beautiful part of our city.

I support The Trails at CMR. The Trails will transform a blighted, defunct golf course into new middle-class housing in an area near transit and within a few miles of tens of thousands of jobs. The project’s 180 deed-restricted affordable housing also contributes to San Diego’s goal to make every area of the city a more equitable place to live for people of all income levels.

As our city continues to solve for the lack of housing and our climate crisis, we must embrace projects like The Trails that provide housing within a transit priority area with walking paths and bike trails to accommodate alternate modes of transportation to nearby jobs, schools, shopping, parks and libraries.

The Trails successfully presents a plan that addresses the concerns of existing neighbors to the extent possible while making room for new families. I urge you to join me in support of The Trails.
