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.

Road work continues along San Elijo Road to pave way for Double Peak School Traffic reduced to single lanes until late August

Beginning Monday, May 16, traffic will be reduced to one lane on both north- and southbound sides along San Elijo Road and S. Twin Oaks Valley Road to accommodate roadway improvements critical to student, pedestrian, bicycle and traffic safety while paving the way for future access to the new Double Peak School.

Motorists traveling through the area will see signs in advance of the roadwork and should be prepared to be directed through standard traffic control measures.

During the construction period, pedestrians will be routed to the trail on the west side of S. Twin Oaks Valley Road and bicyclists will be accommodated in a striped bike lane.  Additionally, access to Ridgeline Trailhead and the equestrian park east of Duncan Court will be restricted to right-turn only.

Roadway safety improvements associated with the construction of Double Peak School include extended turning lanes into the school site from both directions that will result in widening of the road, relocation of the center median, relocation of major utility infrastructure and the installation of traffic safety improvements such as traffic signals and crosswalks at the intersection into the school.

Although two-way traffic will be maintained within the work area, traffic delays are anticipated and motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible. A detailed construction and traffic impact map will be available on the City’s website, www.san-marcos.net/roadwork.

All lane closures are expected to be lifted before the end of August 2016. Delays in the schedule may occur due to inclement weather conditions.

While these scheduled traffic impacts may cause short-term inconvenience, the work paves the way for long-term improvements to traffic flow and will provide access enhancements to the new Double Peak School that are critical to student and motorist safety.

Double Peak School, San Marcos Unified’s first K-8, will serve the communities in and around San Elijo Hills and offer a focus on music, arts and innovation. The highly anticipated grand opening will coincide with the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.
