Steve and Victoria Gore Welcome You to Tierrasanta

Tierrasanta was originally part of the Mission San Diego de Alcalá mission ranch, which was active during the late 1700s and 1800s. The U.S. military purchased the land in 1941 as Camp Elliott, a Marine Corps training facility. In 1961, the area that is now Tierrasanta and a portion of neighboring Mission Trails Regional Park was declared surplus and sold. In the following year, the Elliott Community Plan was issued to serve as a roadmap for development going forward. Tierrasanta was founded in 1971. The current Tierrasanta community plan was issued in 1982, and included both the currently developed area and much of what is now Mission Trails Regional Park. By 1982 approximately one-half of the private residential area had been developed, with the area called Tierrasanta Norte, in the northeastern part of town, being one of the locations still to be developed. Tierrasanta has been fully built out since the early 1990s, and by the year 2000 had reached a population of 30,187.  It was one of the first master planned communities in San Diego, and the southernmost of a series of planned San Diego residential communities started in the same time frame along the I-15 corridor
