Here is clip of a nice summery of San Elijo Hills:
The success of this type of community has spawned other similar developments in places as unlikely as North San Diego County where three decades of bigger and bigger boxes is giving way to more diverse housing alternatives
Take the case of San Elijo Hills, a master planned community tucked away in the remote hills of San Marcos, CA. Slated for 3,400 homes and 10,000 residents, the project inched forward for more than a decade before becoming a reality in 2002. When completed, the community is expected to have 10,000 residents on 1,920 acres, yet maintain 1,115 acres of permanent open space.
Its core is a 70 acre, mixed use town center reminiscent of old California towns and neighborhoods. Architectural diversity, walkability, and nearby services have been incorporated into the town center.
“People love the small town feel and the convenience; I often hear the word Mayberry”, said Diane Eiler, a sales representative at Luminara, a Richmond American Community.
