Carmel Mountain Ranch is a 1,489-acre master-planned community in San Diego's North County. More than 12,000 residents make their home in this quiet, but vibrant community.
CMR is located east of Rancho Peñasquitos, south of Rancho Bernardo, north of Sabre Springs, and west of Poway. On the San Diego City Council, CMR is represented by Councilmember Mark Kersey (District 5).
Fun fact: Carmel Mountain Ranch (CMR) is actually closer to Black Mountain than Carmel Mountain, which is 10 miles to the west.
The Carmel Mountain Ranch area was once part of a Mexican land grant that dates to the 1820s. In 1905, the Carmelite Sisters of Mercy established a dairy farm and monastery in the area. Carmel Mountain, a Biblical reference to Mount Carmel, takes its names from the nuns.
In 1984, the San Diego City Council approved and adopted the first Carmel Mountain Ranch Community Plan.
