Intesa was the trusted government affairs partner to Integral Communities as it pursued zoning-change approval for San Diego County’s first-ever agrihood, called North River Farms. On November 6th, 2019, North River Farms was approved by the Oceanside City Council and is moving forward!
This one-of-a-kind, sustainable North County community is in Oceanside’s South Morro Hills region. North River Farms is a planned community of 585 homes, hosts a network of 16 miles of trails and parks, and is woven into a 68-acre production farm that centers around agriculture, education, and a farm-to-table lifestyle.
Through government relations and community outreach, Intesa helped the North River Farms team better navigate administrative intricacies, outline the overall project strategy as well as engage community members and organizations through strategic communications and informative events to garner understanding that ultimately gained support for the project.
