Shelter Valley, California is the only fairly cheap land, that I know of in San Diego County. If you go straight through Julian, and keep heading east, and go down into the valley, you'll hit Shelter Valley. Used to be called Earthquake Valley, which I thought was a very cool name!

It's actually in a really beautiful area - gorgeous desert scenery - the Anza Borrego Desert State Park surrounds it on all sides. But it's a tiny little place - only a couple of hundred residents - and it's a long commute to anywhere other than Julian.

Just heard this on the radio yesterday. Terramar has cheap rent and good schools. Check, check and check.
Although I am not certain how some of the folks in the area feel about it.

That's limited-income accommodations, though, isn't it?

No doubt some of the neighbors resent it. Too bad for them - they can move away from there. There's a reason all builders are required to provide affordable housing. And it's finally good to see some that's incorporated into the new neighborhood, instead of being shoveled off to areas that are already economically challenged.

So true oddstray. What I think is somewhat misunderstood from some of the comments I have heard, is that in order for cities to get funding via state grants or bonds, new construction MUST have this type of housing available per capita (usually zip code).

Whether someone agrees/disagrees with it, its a fact of life of living in CA.

I know of one in Delmar that didn't work out too well for the existing residents. You too can now have instant graffiti and car vandalism overnight
