In the face of overwhelming community opposition to SHR and 560+ days after a massive response to SHR’s Draft Environmental Impact Report, there is still NO Final EIR in sight.

Same project. Same bad idea. New name.
As always, SPVPA is dedicated to educating the public on issues that negatively impact San Pasqual and nearby communities, so we remain at the forefront of evaluating and challenging this attempt to “rebrand” a thinly veiled up-zoning effort in the San Diego backcountry.
