Research on Custom Homes Sites Straddling both County of San Diego/City of Escondido

Did due diligence and feasibility research study to determine how many custom home sites could be building on hilly environmentally sensitive parcels under one owner that straddled land in both the both County of San Diego/City of Escondido.

Project Testimonial
“Met Terry through the BIA and then bumped into him other spots. When it came time to get all the necessary information on our properties, we sought help from others and didn’t get complete results. I finally reached out to Terry and finally got the complete information that was critical to move forward. His work was complete, thorough, accurate and well documented. His pricing was fair and he was generous with his time. Great guy to work with. I highly recommend Terry”

Private Lot Subdivision – Fort Bragg, Ca

“Designed how to properly break up a 20 acre parcel with one residence approved into 3 parcels with 3 residences approved in a manner that both maximized the distance from sewer septic tanks and leach lines to a local water district watershed, and minimized the environmental impact on that watershed. Worked with the local water district, the city public works and planning directors, the county engineer’s office, and the regional water quality control board to get approval for splitting up this lot and putting 3 private residences on it. “
