Oceanside Mulls Over 177-Acre Subdivision in Historic Morro Hills
A second public meeting is taking place mid-January to discuss the farm-themed planned development North River Farms in historically agricultural Morro Hills.
The city of Oceanside has had misgivings on the development that would use 177 acres of the rural area. But as reported by Times of San Diego, the applicant for the project — NRF Project Owner LLC — added modifications that would respect the historic land, as requested by the City Council.
The planned subdivision of North River Farms is set to have 1,000 homes in a variety of types, a commercial center, community gardens, trails, parks, and a boutique hotel.
The city has required that an Environmental Impact Report is done before development commences, as the project could still have extreme environmental effects. Meetings related to the report will be open to facilitate public participation.
The next meeting will be held at the Melba Bishop Recreation Center at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 16.
