San Marcos residents fighting to block development by referendum – The San Diego Union-Tribune

San Marcos residents opposed to a 220-home development on Twin Oaks Valley Road have collected signatures for a referendum against the project.Residents gathered 5,000 signatures for a ballot measure to overturn City Council approval of the Brookfield development in San Marcos. Residents opposed say the development will worsen traffic and school overcrowding. Officials who support the project say it offers entry-level housing. Residents who fear a planned development will create problems for roads, schools and safety in San Marcos are trying to take the project to voters in November, in hopes of reversing the City Council’s approval.

Have you all signed the petition for the building of 200+ townhomes past the firehouse…before the new neighborhood of Rancho Tesoro? Despite many residents fighting this during January’s meeting, city council voted for it anyway…not caring about the residents concerns. In order to stop them…we need a referendum – about 6,000 signatures the next couple weeks.

This development will attend Double Peak. Residents want concerns of traffic and overcrowded schools addressed first.

If you haven’t signed, here are some dates:
Upcoming petition hours at Starbucks (on S. Twin Oaks Valley Rd. next to Flippin Pizza)

* Wed, Feb 7, 6-8pm
* Wed, Feb 16, 6-8pm

Residents decry San Marcos housing development approval – The Coast News Group

A group of residents who have expressed frustration with the pace of development in San Marcos said the City Council’s recent approval a 220-home development on Twin Oaks Valley Road is the final straw.The group of residents plans to pursue a referendum to reverse the council’s 4-1 approval of Brookfield Residential Properties’ proposal, which would re-zone about 23 acres near the southwest corner of Twin Oaks Valley Road and Village Drive — just south of Cal State San Marcos — from commercial to residential to pave the way for the new homes. Residents packed council chambers on Jan. 23 to urge the council to vote against the second reading of the ordinance approving the project. The council had voted two weeks earlier to approve the first reading.They said that the city is approving residential development at a much faster pace than the infrastructure needed to support it, pointing to overcrowding at San Marcos’ schools and congestion on key roads and State Highway 78 as evidence.“It’s the next development on the docket and we are fed up,” said Kelly Shipley, one of the chief organizers of the opposition. “What we want to see is development with infrastructure to support it.”Their message to the council was clear: slow down.
