City of Escondido

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Jeffrey Epp, 760-839-4608

The Escondido City Council has reached an agreement under which Stuck in the Rough (SITR) will dismiss its litigation pertaining to the former Escondido Country Club property.

Under the agreement, a prior court ruling which invalidated an Open Space Initiative for the property will remain in place and the City will not appeal that ruling.  SITR will withdraw its 2015 application for 270 homes, with fees to be either credited or reimbursed. While SITR retains ownership of the property, another developer will act as the lead representative on any future development application for the former Country Club property and to accept proposals for development from the surrounding community. SITR has presently identified three potential developers for the property. The City will process any application in accordance with CEQA, the Planning and Zoning Law, the Subdivision Map Act, and any other applicable laws.

Each side will bear their own costs and attorney fees.

 

A copy of the agreement will be placed online on Thursday, October 8 and can be found at:
