Document Description
The proposed project would complement recent restoration effects within San Dieguito Lagoon by establishing wetland habitat within a specific portion of the lagoon system, referred to as W-19. The proposed project would encompass approx. 141 acres of land adjacent to the San Dieguito River and wetland habitats. including an area already identified as a restoration opportunity by the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority (JPA) in the Park Master Plan for the Coastal Area of the San Dieguito River Valley Regional Open Space Park (Park Master Plan). The I-5 North Coast Corridor Public Works Plan/Transportation and Resource Enhancement Program (PWP/TREP) identifies the site as part of the overall wetland mitigation strategy for infrastructure projects along the I-5 North Coast Corridor within northern San Diego County. Restoration within W-19 is also anticipated to be used as mitigation for the El Camino Real Bridge/Road Widening Project. The goal is to establish a system with approx. 50 acres of tidal wetland and 15 acres of brackish wetland, as well as create and/or enhance approx. 5 acres of riparian. Other areas would be established as transitional areas and native uplands. Wetland and upland acreage that exceeds this goal could be utilizing as mitigation for future project by others, determined appropriate by regulatory agencies. The proposed project would also include a new trail generally paralleling El Camino Real. The trail would link to the Dust Devil Nature Trail along the southern edge of the project area and extend north to near the El Camino Real Bridge for future connection to the Coast to Crest Trail, after replacement of the bridge by the City of San Diego. Finally, the project involves an addendum to the JPA's existing Park Master Plan, specifically expanding Master Plan boundaries to El Camino Real, adding the proposed trail, and reflecting future habitat designations.
