A project has been trying to get off the ground since the City purchased the property in 2001. It has caused two seperate CEQA lawsuits and cost over a million dollars to get through the environmental impact report and legal fees. What was the City proposing? A cement plant? A power plant? A smelting plant? Nope, nope, nope. The City of Encinitas had the temerity to propose a park… And now many years and many dollars later the Court has given us the green light to go forward. Turko has followed this from about the beginning (when the neighbor called him to complain about the messy property) and he does a very good wrap-up.
