ESCONDIDO, CA-Residents are threatening a lawsuit to block a 28-unit condominium project on South Escondido Boulevard near Sunset Drive.

The South Escondido Good Neighbor Coalition has been fighting since December to stop or change the project, but the City Council approved the development last week, overturning a Planning Commission decision rejecting the project unanimously May 8.

Commission staff ruled the project by Hallmark Communities “out of character” with the neighborhood.

San Diego-based Hallmark plans to build the two-story units, priced at less than $300,000. Hallmark officials claim the project would provide affordable housing for the city.

Members of the residents’ coalition remain concerned about the project’s density and style and have threatened a lawsuit or ballot measure to block the project.
