The United Rural Communities Need Your Help!

Lawsuit Filed Against San Diego County Board of Supervisors

The United Rural Communities of Harmony Grove, Elfin Forest, and Eden Valley are fighting for survival as the San Diego County Board of Supervisors have approved two housing developments that will irreparably damage a historic rural community, as well as negatively impact the greater North County region. Save North County is a campaign to raise community awareness and funding for the Rural Defense Fund and challenge in court the Supervisors approval of Harmony Grove Village South and Valiano housing projects.

Impacts to North County of the proposed developments include increased traffic on our overloaded roads, severe fire danger, loss of habitat for native species unique to San Diego, destruction of a historic rural community, missed opportunity to add affordable housing, and setting precedent that the Supervisors can ignore the General Plan and disempower local communities in land planning decisions.

San Diego’s General Plan outlines smart growth. These development conflict with this smart growth plan and will result in:

0% Housing density increase
Loss of community′s rural character
0 Additional Car Trips Per Day
On our already impacted highways and roads

Keepin’ It Rural 5k/10k Hike and Trail Run

Come  join the community of Elfin Forest and Harmony Grove for a 5k/ 10k trail run/hike to raise funds to help “keep it rural.” Elfin Forest and Harmony Grove are a hidden gem in San Diego North County, home of diverse wildlife, scenic trails and biological diversity. This event raises money to help fund the cause of keeping this area scenic, rural and pristine.

This will be a chip-timed race for both the 5k and the 10k.   The 5k can include hikers and runners while the 10k will be limited to runners.  A 2 hour time limit will be imposed on the course.
