Since the 1960’s, the manicured grass, majestic trees and welcoming facilities of the Escondido Country Club have provided beauty and value to create one of the most treasured neighborhoods in Escondido.

In August 2013, the Escondido City Council unanimously declared the 110 acres of land as a dedicated open space.  In November 2014, the land owner, a Beverly Hills developer who wanted to build a massive housing development on the property, was shot down by Escondido voters in a 61% land-slide, declaring that Escondido does not want a 430 unit housing development.

Now entering Phase 3 of our journey, determining how the land will be used.  For more information, please email:  ECCHO.Info@gmail.com.

Thank you for taking the time to help build a better Escondido.

Update from ECCHO

Monday, July 13, 2015

ECCHO Members, 

The Escondido City Council has yet to decide whether the City will appeal Judge Maas’s erroneous ruling.  There is strong Council support for an appeal.  Thanks to your complaints about the appearance of the golf course property and the risk of a fire hazard due to high weeds, the City forced STIR to remove the weeds.  The undeveloped property is now safe and looks much better.  ECCHO will hold a community gathering within the next 60 days to inform of further developments.  Stay tuned.

A Message from our Council Member, John Masson

Friday, June 12, 2015

Here’s the latest that came out in Clay’s City Manager Report:

“A letter has been sent to the applicants for the proposed vesting tentative subdivision map on the former Escondido Country Club property advising that until the litigation is resolved and the City decides not to appeal, the ECCHO initiative remains in effect and would prevent a residential project from being processed. The letter also advises the applicant of the necessary items to complete the application for processing should the litigation be resolved.”

Escondido Town Hall Meeting

Saturday, May 9, 2015

 

Escondido Mayor Sam Abed will hold a Town Hall meeting on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at 4:30 PM in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 201 N. Broadway. Following a brief update by the Mayor, residents will be welcome to ask questions or share their thoughts on any topic relating to city government.  The event is free and no reservations are required. 

The meeting will be videotaped and rebroadcast the following Sunday and Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. on Cox. Ch. 19 and AT&T U-Verse Ch. 99

We can take this opportunity to tell Mayor Abed directly that we want the City to appeal Judge Maas’ incorrect decision.  Or tell the Mayor how the proposed 270 home development, while made to sound like a compromise, is actually worse than the 430 homes that we voted down in November.  This 270 plan has NOTHING for current residents; the amenities are for the new homes HOA ONLY.
