Present Land Use
City of San Diego: Park, Open Space & Recreation

Document Description
The project includes two primary components: (1) project-level environmental evaluation for the creation of a wetland mitigation bank within the District-owned portion of Pond 20, which was historically used as a salt evaporation pond (Bank Parcel); and (2) program-level environmental evaluation of the incorporation of Parcels A, B, and C into the District's Port Master Plan (PMP), and assign land use designations to the project site. The District is proposing a PMP amendment to incorporate the Bank Parcel into the District's PMP, and assign a land use designation of "wetlands." Parcels A, B, and Care District-owned property; however, currently these areas are not formally incorporated into the PMP. Parcels A, B, and Care located immediately adjacent to Pond 20,and would be assigned a "commercial recreation" and/or "wetlands" land use designation.
