Copper Hills Development

San Elijo Life had an informative conversation with Jason and Scott Simmons. They are two brothers that have grown up in San Marcos and their company they are affiliated with are the developers of this project. Their father also has a historical footprint here in San Marcos as a developer.  They are very focused in connecting with the community by providing information on this project. They want to be available to speak and/or meet with anyone to answer questions, hear your feedback and solutions. This is a preview of information on this project and a more detailed article from us is coming soon. They provided this statement below for our San Elijo Life readers to learn more about Copper Hills. The site is a treasure for local residents to hike, bike, run and play and we encourage everyone to go and enjoy the spring green hills and familiarize yourself with the site. The old dump and it’s safety along with the long history of old recycling center are important parts of this area and the history before and during the existence of San Elijo Hills. Traffic, school crowding and designated open space are topics that should be part of the community discussion.

Statement

Just southwest of San Elijo Hills town center, nestled in between Old Creek Ranch and the old recycling center, is a little know 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 Hills. The property is currently located in the jurisdiction of the County of San Diego, but is being proposed to annex into the City of San Marcos. This will give us in San Elijo Hills and San Marcos a voice in the proposed uses for the site.  

While most of the land will remain in open space; a portion will be developed into usable residential and commercial as well as park space and recreation opportunities.  This is the last spot along San Elijo Road that could fulfill some of the needs of the community that have been missing.  Potential uses include community gathering facilities, trail access and parking, large park area, a Boys and Girls Club and Teen Center, a skate park, outdoor basketball courts, community pools, congregate care for seniors, 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 Hills and Old Creek Ranch.  

The developer is actively developing solutions for traffic concerns and while the elementary school will be Carrillo, they understand school impact concerns and will be addressing those with the public’s involvement.  Your direct input to the developer is much appreciated and welcomed.  

The Bieri Companies, who has owned the property since 2003; however has been working in San Marcos since the 1980’s and is responsible for CSUSM and areas around it is much appreciated developments.  Local land planning firm CCI or Consultants Collaborative has been involved from the beginning and both principals live in San Elijo Hills.  All 3 firms involved are local and family owned.
