Voters will decide whether to rezone Otay Mesa plot

San Diego County voters in June will be asked whether to rezone a 450-acre plot of land in eastern Otay Mesa for the development of a landfill and recycling center.

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Wednesday to put the measure on the June 8 ballot.

There was no public testimony on the proposal and supervisors offered little comment and declined to write a ballot statement.

Supervisor Greg Cox, who represents the area, said the intent was to “put it on the ballot and let the voters decide.”

If approved by voters, the facility would take up about 350 acres of the 450-acre site east of the Siempre Viva Road exit from Interstate 905. It would include a recycling collection center, lined landfill, scale area and offices.
