New lipstick. Same pig.
Over 1,100 days have passed since the close of the public comment period for the Safari Highlands Ranch Draft Environmental Impact Report. If you missed our analysis as well as the comment letters from federal and state Fish & Wildlife agencies, then you can find that and so much more at our Safari Highlands Ranch page. The developers seem to think that they have addressed all of this thoughtful, detailed analysis by changing the name of the project to Harvest Hills and adding solar panels to each new home (which, by the way, is mandated by law starting in 2020). Also, the residents will have gardens. Yep. Apparently these changes not only address all of the concerns, they will also bring hundreds of millions of dollars in benefits to Escondido during the construction phase and tens of millions of dollars annually in the years thereafter. Huh. We’re not convinced. Tell us what you think.
