The investment company that bought the site of the proposed Gregory Canyon landfill in North County appears to be taking steps to clear the land.

Sovereign Capital has put up fencing and erected a sign along state Route 76 that reads, "Future Home - Gregory Canyon Landfill.”

The controversial project has been in the works for more than two decades and the last owner sold out before obtaining the necessary permits.

Opponents, including the Pala Band of Mission Indians, argue the company cannot legally proceed until permits from the Army Corps of Engineers and the San Diego County Water Authority are obtained.
