Who We Are

We are a volunteer group of Escondido neighbors working together to support approval of the proposed Safari Highlands Ranch community. We see the positive benefits that Safari Highlands Ranch will provide for the Eagle Crest neighborhoods and entire Escondido community.

  • Supports San Pasqual Union School and other local schools
  • Creates a new fire station and emergency road to help improve safety for our neighborhoods
  • Benefits home values with a thriving golf course and nearby estate homes
