A San Ysidro businessman pleaded guilty Friday to charges of negligently filling a wetlands conservation area to create a parking lot for a swap meet, in California's first such criminal case, the U.S. attorney's office said. Joseph Garcia, 33, the president of Joseph G. Enterprises, pleaded guilty to filling a seven-acre parcel with dirt for swap meet parking in August, 1990, and faces a fine of up to $25,000 when he is sentenced in federal court next month.

Alexander Cockburn only tells half the story of San Diego's impending back-country tragedy (Commentary, May 4). The county's rezoning plan not only threatens to divert much-needed water in an already dry region, as the EPA has noted, it imperils drinking water supplies in four major reservoirs. Suburbanization and more intense farming in the east county will increase the already serious pollution of the county's wetlands, bays and beaches through pesticide, fertilizer and highway runoff.

Is there a way to mandate good architecture by virtually dictating architectural styles?

After 10 years of fits and starts, the downtown San Diego housing market finally seems to be hitting its stride. Downtown's four redevelopment zones are alive with construction of apartments and condominiums of every size and price range, from million-dollar penthouses at the sleek, twin-towered and soon-to-open One Harbor Drive to single-room occupancy hotels for the economically disadvantaged. The development pace is accelerating.

The San Diego City Council this week will consider a proposal to impose special zoning on hundreds of institutions ranging from churches to golf courses. Known as an "institutional overlay zone," the plan seeks to protect city neighborhoods from losing treasured community assets to development. The motivation is hard to quarrel with--but the implementation of it is not.

San Pasqual Vineyards, struck down by a virus that killed many of its grapevines, suffered yet another defeat Friday when its neighbors in the rural San Pasqual Valley south of Escondido effectively blocked expansion of the troubled business. San Diego Zoning Administrator Sharron Carr denied an application for a city permit to expand the winery's tasting room by nearly 5,000 square feet. The winery sits on city-owned property within the San Pasqual agricultural preserve.
