    Fanita Ranch News

    An appellate court ruled in favor of environmentals on the Fanita Ranch development (aka Sycamore Canyon area in San Diego). Here's the story in the Patch.

    Aw, Damnit!

    I was really hoping to see thousands of prime acres plowed under. It would so compliment the power station that the power company wants to build even after it was voted down by the zoning commission.

    Hooray for the victories when they come!

    BTW, how is the dump expansion going?

    The dump expansion is not moving along as fast as the prison expansion in the center of town. Poor Santee.

    I'm torn as I'm an advocate for landowner rights and stuff like imminent domain makes my libertarian skin crawl, but the valley is also a really special place just minutes from suburbia and it's a shame to fill another valley and surrounding ridges with homes when there is still tons of infill projects available in Santee.

    Good news

    Now we just need an agreement from the Marines to legalize riding in the area, including the canyon passage from Mission hills.

    I have been thinking that for years. With a little ingenuity, many commutes can contain some dirt.
    Mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders are not the enemy. Bulldozers are the enemy.

    There is a great Ridgeline trail that connects the two. A bit of a roller coaster ride

    Well known, but currently "out of bounds".
