VALLEY CENTER — Plans to build a long-debated community with as many as 1,746 homes in Valley Center were submitted to county planners Monday. Developer Randy Goodson, head of the Accretive Group, filed the documents this week for Lilac Hills Ranch, which would also include a town center, with a grocery store, coffee shop and doctors offices; a school; and recreation areas. The project is planned for the west side of Valley Center by Interstate 15. The project, formerly called the Valley Center Sustainable Community, was first pitched in 2009. The project would need to be connected by a new east-west road between I-15 and West Lilac Road.
