Pacific Highlands Ranch is located in the northwestern portion of the North City Future Urbanizing Area (NCFUA) and encompasses approximately 2,652 acres of predominately undeveloped land. Pacific Highlands Ranch is bounded by the community of Fairbanks Ranch to the north, Torrey Highlands (Subarea IV) to the east, Del Mar Mesa (Subarea V) to the South, and the community of Carmel Valley to the west.Enjoy the award-winning Solana Beach school district and other amenities available in coastal-close.

The City Council in the fall of 1992, adopted the NCFUA Framework Plan as an amendment to the Progress Guide and General Plan. The Framework Plan recommends that the Pacific Highlands Ranch Subarea include up to 5,470 residential units, a mixed-use community core with 400,000 square feet of commercial and office uses, multi-family housing, public and semi public uses, schools, and parks.

The unique element of the planning process in the NCFUA is the voter adopted Managed Growth Initiative Proposition A. This legislation, adopted in 1985, required a majority vote of the electorate to shift the Pacific Highlands Ranch Area from Future Urbanizing to Planned Urbanizing within the City. On July 28, 1998, the City Council adopted the Pacific Highlands Ranch Subarea Plan for Subarea III of the NCFUA. In November of 1998, the electorate voted to approve Proposition M, which approved an amendment to the City's General Plan to allow a phase shift within Pacific Highlands Ranch from Future Urbanizing to Planned Urbanizing.
