The Issue

Poway voters will soon have the opportunity to preserve StoneRidge's open space and Protect Poway’s quality of life.

Last year, StoneRidge residents and members organized POWAY OPEN SPACE, a grassroots movement to prevent closure of the StoneRidge golf course and loss of our open space. The developer came to the negotiating table and after eight months, a plan to maintain the character of the StoneRidge community was reached. This Fall, Poway Voters will be asked to vote YES or NO to rezone a small part of the StoneRidge property, to allow new residences for 55+ active adults and a new, re-designed, water-saving golf course and a new publicly-accessible restaurant and club house.

This is a very good proposal for Poway – and we urge a YES vote on Measure A.

Since the homes will be for residents 55 or older, the development will NOT impact Poway schools, yet will provide needed additional annual property tax funding to the Poway Unified School District.

After passage of Measure A, 92 acres will be set aside as permanent open space, through a legally-binding and permanent Deed Restriction.

The newly designed 18-hole golf course and a new clubhouse will be a sustainable development in energy consumption, and utilize state-of-the art water re-use technology to reduce current water consumption.

Community leaders say that this is the best plan to keep the course open without using tax dollars.

There will be a new club house constructed with a restaurant, bar and multi-purpose space that will be open to the entire Poway community.
