Special meeting on Del Mar Mesa Preserve trails plan to be held Oct. 19

The Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve Citizens Advisory Committee will hold a special meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 19, on the Del Mar Mesa Preserve/Carmel Mountain Resource Management Plan.  The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Park Village Elementary School and the group plans to hear community input before making its final vote on the plan.

The most controversial part of the plan has been the trails map—numerous popular, yet illegal, trails have been closed by the city while the plan has been in the works for the last three years. The new plan has some of those trails closed for good, others have been allowed for recreational use by the resource agencies that own the land, the California Department of Fish and Game, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board gave its conditional approval to the trail plan in July, with the request that an east-west connection be made. After the CAC weighs in, the San Diego City Council will have the final say on the plan.

Park Village, where the meeting will be held, is located at 7930 Park Village Road.
