Tierrasanta, Spanish for "holy land," is a community within the city of San Diego, California. The symbol of Tierrasanta is an encircled Conquistador cross, similar to the Montserrat Cross of Barcelona, Spain, though it holds no religious meaning. The community is also referred to as "The Island in the Hills" by locals.
Tierrasanta was originally part of the Mission San Diego de Alcalá 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. The marines moved in 1944 and the land was transferred to the Navy. It was deactivated in 1946. In 1961, the U.S. Government sold the area that is now Tierrasanta and a portion of neighboring Mission Trails Regional Park to the City of San Diego. In the following year, the Elliott Community Plan was issued to serve as a roadmap for development going forward and in 1971 Tierrasanta was founded. 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 (ZIP code 92124). It was one of the first master planned communities in San Diego.
In October 2003, Tierrasanta, among other communities in San Diego, was affected by what was known as ‘Firestorm 2003.’ This was a conglomeration of the Cedar Fire and numerous other wildfires that convened on Southern California. The residents of Tierrasanta were forced to evacuate. Nearly a dozen homes were lost to the blaze, which was a small number compared to the many homes burned to the ground in nearby Scripps Ranch. Shortly after, in 2004, the Tierrasanta Civilian Emergency Response Team (T-CERT) was created for rapid local response to natural disasters. A similar scare swept through Tierrasanta in the fall of 2007, though residents were not required to evacuate.
Tierrasanta is situated like an island, not directly bordered by any community. It is bounded on the north by the Mount Soledad (52) Freeway and the sprawling southern fields of MCAS Miramar; on the east by the 5,800-acre Mission Trails Regional Park, which has many hiking and mountain biking trails; on the west by Interstate 15, and on the south by steep canyons overlooking the San Diego River and Mission Valley. Community activities focus on the Tierrasanta Recreation Center, which includes lighted sports fields, a large swimming pool, tennis courts, a gymnasium, and meeting rooms. Numerous green belts with walking paths run through the canyons of Tierrasanta.
Tierrasanta is a thriving area of up-scale single family homes, condominiums, apartments, three shopping centers, a branch of the San Diego Public Library, and a research park. Also located in the community are several top-ranked elementary and middle schools rated through the Academic Performance Index (API) tests by the California Education Department, including the largest community school, Junipero Serra High School.
It is sometimes referred to as "T-Town" by younger residents. The community has tree-lined streets and secluded "small town" atmosphere though it is centrally located with a 20 minute drive to downtown San Diego.
