Ag District settles Sierra Club lawsuit

By Joe Tash

A lawsuit filed by the local chapter of the Sierra Club against the state agency that runs the Del Mar Fairgrounds has been settled, officials announced Tuesday, May 7.

The club sued the 22nd District Agricultural Association over potential environmental impacts from a master plan for the fairgrounds approved by the district in 2011.

Another lawsuit involving the master plan, filed by the cities of Solana Beach and Del Mar and the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority, was settled in November.

“The good news today is all the litigation related to the master plan is over,” said 22nd DAA board member David Watson at the May 7 meeting.

Under the settlement, the district will conduct further analysis of several issues, including traffic, greenhouse gases and water supply, as a judge had ordered in an earlier ruling on the case.

The settlement means the district has resolved all pending litigation against it.

District officials have said the first element of the master plan that they plan to address is replacement of the fairgrounds’ aging exhibit halls.
