A controversial bid to build 189 houses in the foothills of northern San Marcos won approval this week from the San Marcos City Council, but critics have vowed to keep fighting the project, saying it’s too much development for the untouched land. The so-called San Marcos Highlands community — approved by the council in a 4-1 vote Tuesday — is planned for a nearly 300-acre property at the northern end of Las Posas Road. Homes would be built on 50 acres, and the rest of the property would be set aside as permanent open space. About half the land is within the city limits and the other half is in the county’s unincorporated area.
