The reality about this situation is that it could affect any community in San Diego. But what is really disappointing is that this property has been a greenbelt, intertwined into an existing community for 50 years. It is a green space, an animal habitat, and pristine historic open space which has been a benefit to all of San Diego County for many generations. Take a drive by sometime and see its natural beauty.
The community of Escondido wants this property to remain open space. The community has asked the present owner to work with it on a plan to make this happen so that all benefit. There has been no response from the present owner, other then he will not sell it to another private interest. It has been suggested that the owner compromise and sell the property to a nonprofit which could be created, so that only the community benefits. Hopefully, a way forward can be found, where everyone wins, the community, the present owner, and the green space. We can only hope that everyone does the right thing and that the residents and community of San Diego preserves this important open, green space for future generations.
