Encinitas Neighbor Rancho Santa Fe

RSF organized as a big fat HOA and even has lots of employees and a big process for approving developments. They even have an design review board.

The Art Jury in Rancho Santa Fe, to this day, still reviews every proposed development or significant change in a property and gives its approval or not.

A decision by the Art Jury was once challenged by a homeowner who was unsuccessful in his litigation.

“The court ruled that beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” Smith said.

The eye that decides the beauty belongs to the community and the Art Jury, the court decided.
This high rent low density area of the county is where people who can live just about anywhere choose to opt into.


  1. Yes, but they don't have city unions with huge pensions that they need ever-denser development to fund.

  2. Thats right Winston. And lets keep Encinitas heading towards Oceanside.

  3. Rancho Santa Fe is beautiful. I still say that if I could live in one would be the Covenant of RSF. And they have a great organization to make sure it stays that way.

    Fire danger? Whatever...
