The San Diego City Council has extended a moratorium on construction in the city's 12,000-acre urban reserve to allow a consultant more time to write a comprehensive plan for the area, one of the last major undeveloped tracts in the city. Despite keen interest from some developers to move forward with construction projects covering about 75% of the reserve, the council voted Tuesday to extend the moratorium until Sept. 21, 1992. The current moratorium is scheduled to expire Dec. 10.
