Since the 1960’s, the manicured grass, majestic trees and welcoming facilities of the Escondido Country Club have provided beauty and value to create one of the most treasured neighborhoods in Escondido.

In August 2013, the Escondido City Council unanimously declared the 110 acres of land as a dedicated open space.  In November 2014, the land owner, a Beverly Hills developer who wanted to build a massive housing development on the property, was shot down by Escondido voters in a 61% land-slide, declaring that Escondido does not want a 430 unit housing development.

Now entering Phase 3 of our journey, determining how the land will be used.  For more information, please email:  ECCHO.Info@gmail.com.

Thank you for taking the time to help build a better Escondido.
