The long-awaited and highly anticipated San Elijo Hills Town Center is finally under construction! Ambient Communities broke ground on the Town Center in early August and began rough grading and underground utility work. To celebrate, Ambient Communities, along with Market Place tenants and newly-signed Town Center tenants, are sponsoring a “San Elijo Hills Family Fall Festival” on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 10:00 am to 2:00 p.m. The event will be held at Town Square Park, located at the corner of San Elijo and Elfin Forest Roads. Local food, merchandise, music and family-friendly activities will be showcased. “We have received such a warm welcome from the community that we wanted to make the groundbreaking a community event,” said Duncan Budinger, Director of Retail Development at Ambient. “We are excited to bring this project to life and be a part of this special place. San Elijo Hills Family Fall Festival is the first of many exciting things to come.”
During the event, representatives from Ambient Communities will be on-site to provide project information and answer questions. Project information is also available by visiting

How San Marcos Unified Deals With a Rare and Welcome Problem: Booming Enrollment – Voice of San Diego
How San Marcos Unified Deals With a Rare and Welcome Problem: Booming EnrollmentMost school districts in San Diego County – and throughout the state – struggle with declining enrollment. But the city of San Marcos’ population has more than doubled since 1990, and that’s meant lots of new students for San Marcos Unified, which has to constantly find space for its growing student body.
A single lane closure along Baker St from San Elijo Rd – North to San Elijo Rd – South has been scheduled starting Tuesday, Sept 19 to accommodate construction improvements related to a new San Elijo Town Center project. Work will take place Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm. There will be occasional full road closure as required to efficiently complete the work. Public notification will be posted about a week in advance prior to scheduled full road closure. The road will be opened up to at least one way traffic as soon as possible during the work day.
Although intermittent two-way traffic will be maintained along Baker St, traffic delays are anticipated and motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes during the work period. Standard traffic control measures with advanced warning signs and detours will be in place. Delays in the schedule may occur due to inclement weather conditions.
