County officials unveiled designs Thursday for a regional park in the Tijuana River Valley that, together with the existing Border Field State Park, would form a massive public area. Officials say the park would contain about 1,100 acres and possibly more. The combined public parkland in the area would stretch from San Ysidro to the coast along Imperial Beach. Portions of the park would serve as environmental preserves. "This valley will finally be recognized as the important natural resource that it is," county Supervisor Brian Bilbray said.

After 1 1/2 years of struggling infancy, the regional park agency that wants to develop a 55-mile-long wildlife and park corridor from Del Mar to the foothills of Julian announced Friday that it has taken its first step: the purchase of 89 acres of wetlands alongside the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The property, once proposed as the site of a commercial resort complex that raised the hackles of coastal residents, will be preserved as wetlands and the home of four endangered species, officials said.

For the first time, the fate of the verdant San Dieguito River Valley, the county's last coastal river valley without massive development, has become an issue in the San Diego City Council elections. The San Dieguito River Valley looms as a major land-use battleground pitting developers interested in upscale housing and industrial parks against preservationists eager to see the valley become a greenbelt barrier to keep North County from being swallowed by urban sprawl from the south.

Overseers of a proposed 43-mile-long regional park that would stretch across the midsection of San Diego County learned Friday that the county independently has ordered appraisals on two critical properties in the San Dieguito River Valley that, if acquired, would begin to turn the paper park into reality. The news was hailed by directors of the San Dieguito River Valley Regional Park, which so far is both penniless and propertyless.

The City of San Diego sold 263 acres to Escondido on Tuesday, receiving $11.3 million in cash and half interest in a public golf course in exchange. The negotiated sale passed by a bare majority of five San Diego City Council votes and is contingent on Escondido's buying about $8 million in water and sewer rights from San Diego. The controversial land sale involves property surrounding the North County Fair Shopping Center in southern Escondido.

San Pasqual Valley, that fertile flood plain that divides the San Diego neighborhood of Rancho Bernardo from the fast-growing city of Escondido, is a place where time seems to have stood still. At least until recently, when someone wound the clock and set the alarm for the 21st Century. The valley, just upstream from Lake Hodges, looks much as it did 100 years ago when farmers there boasted of growing giant sweet potatoes.
