Time to Focus on Building Housing in Appropriate Places

06/24/20

Today the Board of Supervisors voted to deny the Lilac Hills Ranch General Plan Amendment. Supervisor Nathan Fletcher supported this decision and issued the following statement: 

“I support efforts to increase the availability of housing in San Diego and believe it is time we embrace placing that housing in appropriate places. For too long, the County Board has supported development projects that do not comply with our General Plan, do not account for our greenhouse gas reduction obligations under our Climate Action Plan and do not address wildfire concerns. It is time for things to change. We need to support projects that meet the General Plan, address climate change and air quality by building near transit stops, and reduce vehicle miles traveled.”
