    Last year I purchased a home in HCR (love it by the way). Any future plans or talks about a new High School for TV which HCR residents would attend instead of going to Lake Elsinore. Look forward to your reply, thanks.

      Steven — Horsethief Canyon Ranch is a super community. I’m glad you love it! As you know, our Temescal Valley area is served by two school districts –Lake Elsinore Unified and Corona-Norco Unified. Sadly, our Temescal Valley students attend high schools in Corona and Lake Elsinore. While several TV residents within CNUSD are letting the district know they want a high school here, even if one were built, it’s highly unlikely HCR students would automaticalley attend that school. I don’t know either districts’ policies on district transfers, so research is warranted. I also don’t know about annexation possibilities for school districts. Could CNUSD extend its boundaries to include HCR and Luiseno School? Could LEUSD extend its boundaries to encompass the remainder of Temescal Valley including Todd and Temescal Valley elementary schools? Would residents support a move by either district toward annexation? I need to do more homework and I’ll get back to you!

    I wonder if there are any plans to construct a freeway on/off-ramp between Temescal Canyon Rd and Indian Truck Trail? Primarily, this exit will be on Temescal Cyn Rd on the intersection with Campbell Ranch Rd.

    This will help a lot of Sycamore Creek residents hopping on/off the 15 Fwy.

      Ze — In the county’s Temescal Canyon Area Plan (part of the county’s overall General Plan — its vision for the future), there’s this little tidbit. “Construct a new interchange on the Interstate 15 between the existing interchanges at Temescal Canyon Road and Indian Truck Trail.” It doesn’t say where or when, but the only logical place for a new interchange would be in the vicinity of Campbell Ranch Raod and the I-15. I don’t see this happening anytime soon, but if a new interchange were to be built, the ideal time to do it would be when the I-15 toll lanes project (expected completion 2020), continues its expansion south from Cajalco Road. That’s many years in the future.

    The new TV signs are great, yet I am disappointed that they did not include a saying that helps brand our locality. I have, and I have seen others, with license plate frames that identify TV as there home. Maybe have an official saying people can put on their plate frame . . . maybe even have a competition for the best one.

    Just a thought that could better reinforce the identity of our community

      Robert — This is an excellent idea! I will call it to the attention of Tracy Davis and her Identity Committee. The license plate frames, that were created many years ago, say “Temescal Valley — There’s No Place Like Home”

    Food options? Any news of future restaurant development? Fast casual, fast food or restaurants showing interest in placement? In addition, any other retail or mixed used plans in the works?

      Ryan — Please see an earlier story posted last month: Plans for retail center announced. This developer said he was in negotiations but couldn’t say which fast-food restaurants he was talking to. Right now no other retail or mixed use plans have been announced, but Development Committee Chairman Jerry Sincich and his committee are on top of all proposed development for Temescal Valley.

    As a resident of Sycamore Creek, I was hopeful that there might be some way to beautify the shoulders of of Temescal Canyon Road between Maitri and Campbell Ranch Road. It’s a bit of an eye sore that does not improve until you make the right turn onto Campbell Ranch Road and the Sycamore Creek portion begins. I am not asking for side walks or extra street lighting (yet) but perhaps at least clear the low vegetation, level the ground and trim the trees and maybe even slat the fence to visually block the view to the sub station and surface mine area. Perhaps some well placed large boulders could be placed like the ones you see when you get off Indian Truck Trail would be nice.

    Thank you for your consideration. I’m sure the residents would approve.
