Praise for Park Circle by Members of Local Government Agencies

The project was praised by Chairwoman Dianne Jacob for being consistent with the development density of the General Plan and a project with community support.

“It’s is a prime example of how development should be done in this county and I’m in strong support of this project.” -Chairwoman Dianne Jacob

San Diego County Planning Commissioners commended Touchstone Communities for their project design, planning process, and collaboration with County Staff and Valley Center community members.

Below are some of the comments received from the Commissioners:

“This is a great example of how it’s supposed to be done… You guys did exactly what land use planning and community planning is supposed to be about. So thank you very much for a high quality process and project.” -Commissioner Beck

“I’m a strong yes for the project because I think we’re doing what we’re supposed to be doing – providing housing in San Diego County… This just falls into the category of a no brainer.” -Commissioner Barnhardt

“I think this process is one to put in a bottle and ship it out to other developers.” -Commissioner Beck

“Great project. It looks like it’s well thought out. I appreciate the handshake between you and the community and vice versa to make this work.” -Commissioner Seiler

“When we have an item like this and our community leaders are smiling, I just want to commend you, you’ve done the right thing and have come up with the right mix…” -Chairman Brooks


Hundreds of new homes approved for Valley Center

A plan to build 332 single-family homes in central Valley Center, as well as a commercial center, a public park and other amenities, was enthusiastically approved this week by the county Board of Supervisors.


Development in line with the General Plan

Park Circle was featured in a KPBS segment where reporter Alison St John interviewed Touchstone’s Kerry Garza to learn more about the project and how it aligns with the General Plan. The interview was part of a story discussing the “precedent-setting choice” voters will face with the Lilac Hills Initiative on November’s ballot.
