Locals take Los Penasquitos board positions

The Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve Citizens Advisory Committee held elections at their March 19 meeting.

Del Mar Mesa resident Marvin Gerst was named chairman and Carmel Valley resident Anne Harvey was voted vice chairwoman. Brian Swanson, president of the Friends of the Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve group, was named treasurer.

In an e-mail, Gerst said that he expects a “lively year” for the CAC, who will respond to the Del Mar Mesa and Carmel Mountain Preserve resource management plan. The revised plan, which will include the trail system, should be reviewed at the May 21 meeting. (The group meets every other month).

Gerst’s other stated goals are continuing to ensure that all legitimate user groups can enjoy the preserve, be it hikers, bikers or equestrians. He said he also hopes to continue attempts to close illegal trails and prevent new vandalism, with CAC member Eric Basil heading up a new volunteer patrol.
