San Diego — The San Diego City Council approved The Glen at Scripps Ranch, a new 53-acre continuing care retirement community located in Scripps Miramar Ranch, by a vote of 9 to 0. Latitude 33, a San Diego-based planning and engineering firm in association with KTGY Architects and KTU+A Landscape Architects, provided land entitlements for the community plan amendment, the vesting tentative map (VTM), the conditional use permit and the planned development permit.
Latitude 33 Senior Project Manager Melissa Krause said, “The Glen at Scripps Ranch addresses a housing need that the Scripps Ranch neighborhood and community leaders have expressed is a top priority. This project received unanimous support in votes taken by the Scripps Miramar Ranch Planning Group, the San Diego Planning Commission and City Council. It means there is great importance in providing San Diego County a centrally located continuing care retirement community with onsite amenities to help residents live an active lifestyle in their later years.”
“Our team at Latitude 33 Planning and Engineering worked closely with many community stakeholders including Scripps Miramar Ranch residents, local leaders and elected officials to make The Glen at Scripps Ranch a reality. The beauty of the natural environment was given utmost consideration in terms of scale, materials and style, making The Glen at Scripps Ranch compatible with adjacent development in the area.”
