Discover San Marcos

Located in the beautiful foothills of northern San Diego County is San Marcos, a progressive community of more than 95,000 residents who enjoy a fantastic quality of life.

Although San Marcos has experienced rapid growth over the last decade, it continues to maintain the small-town atmosphere and values that attracted so many new residents here.

Home to Palomar College and California State University San Marcos, the City has also become the heart of education in San Diego North.

San Marcos works diligently to maintain its low crime rate and consistently ranks as one of the safest cities in California. It also has some of the best fire emergency response times around and achieved a Class 1 Public Protection Classification rating, the highest level of recognition available from the Insurance Service Organization.

A dedication to parks and community services is another priority for the City of San Marcos. In addition to its rich recreational and cultural programs for children, teens, adults, and seniors, the City has constructed 60 miles of trails, 29 new parks, and 11 recreation centers over the past 25 years.

Location, Location, Location

For people to choose where to live is very important when they are looking for a property. It has a great impact on property value. When a person moves they always prioritize that it be a good area, looking for a pleasant neighborhood and at the same time that it is close to the places of interest such as the children’s school, universities, recreation spaces, and access to freeways to get to work. Loma Libre meets all these search criteria.

Business Parks

The intersection between El Camino Real and Palomar Airport Road is one of the main points to which many people travel every day to go to work. Hundreds of companies are concentrated in the entire area surrounding Mc Clellan airport, some of them very important. Living in San Marcos gives people the ability to access easily and without depending on the highways.

La Mirada Academy

La Mirada Academy educates students by fostering global and cultural awareness. 

The school’s transition from a K-5 elementary to a K-8 international baccalaureate program will include the rebuilding of the school’s multi-purpose room and new fields. The project’s budget was $17 million.

Palomar College

The main 200-acre (0.81 km2) campus of Palomar College is located in northern San Marcos. It is a public two-year community college and is a member of the California Community Colleges system. It enrolls approximately 30,000 full-time and part-time students. Palomar offers more than 250 associate degree and certificate programs.

San Marcos High School

An antiquated school transformed into a modern, multistory campus. San Marcos school officials in California needed to bring their oldest school into the 21st century and expand facilities for a growing student body. School and community meetings produced a vision that would replace the outdated one-story complex serving 1,800 students with four multistory buildings for 3,000 students.

San Marcos University

CSU San Marcos offers 62 bachelor’s degrees, 15 master’s degrees, an Ed.D. program, and 13 teaching credentials. In addition, CSU San Marcos offers a “special major” option to those students who wish to design their own undergraduate major. The university has four colleges: the College of Business Administration; the College of Science and Mathematics; the College of Humanities, Arts, Behavioral and Social Sciences; and the College of Education, Health and Human Services.

Loma Libre Devolopment

Given the recent launch of the plan to update the zoning strategy in the city of San Marcos. The development of a subdivision like Loma Libre becomes an extremely attractive plan. Seen from the city perspective, it is a good opportunity to add more properties and thus be able to meet the goals that are established year after year. In the space where today is living one family, they could be living more than ten.
From the investor’s perspective, it is a very good opportunity to maximize investment. The new zoning update would allow to subdivided into more properties than what was possible up to now.
