Southern California Edison has spent $5.7 million for 88 undeveloped acres along the San Dieguito River Valley in Del Mar to restore as natural wetlands, the utility said Monday. The purchase, at more than twice the land's previously appraised value, provides an important link in a planned 55-mile-long regional park and open-space wildlife corridor along the river valley from Del Mar to the foothills near Julian.

Like an infant that finally rolls over in its crib while doting parents talk of future weightlifting championships, the fledgling San Dieguito River Valley Regional Park is both blessed and burdened by expectations.

In "Minding Their Manors" (Sept. 6), about the preservation of the San Dieguito River Valley, golf professional Tommy Jacobs is quoted as saying, "The environmentalists want everything kept natural, but they don't want to pay for it. They want somebody else to buy it and pay taxes on it so they can look at it." That insensitive comment puts what most developers feel in a nutshell. I wish to preserve the beautiful San Dieguito River Valley not just so I can "look at it" at someone else's expense, but to preserve the wildlife and natural resources for future generations to enjoy.

We thank The Times and reporter Anthony Perry for covering the San Diego Planning Commission meeting of Sept. 10. However, we would like to point out some inaccuracies and misconceptions in the article of Sept. 11, "Battle of the San Dieguito River Valley Heats Up." The article stated that environmentalists wish to preserve the western San Dieguito River Valley (between Interstate 5 and old El Camino Real) in "open space, bean fields or horse ranches." The article repeats landowners' statements that they are being somehow threatened with "inverse condemnation" and having their land rendered "undevelopable through zoning."

Two days after a San Diego City Council election in which the fate of the San Dieguito River Valley was raised as an issue, a landowners' group that includes UC San Diego co-founder Roger Revelle has proposed a 30-home subdivision in an environmentally sensitive portion of the lower valley. The San Dieguito Trust is seeking permission to build the spacious homes on about 10 acres between El Camino Real and Interstate 5 on the southern slope of the valley.

The recent letter from Alice Goodkind, president of Friends of the San Dieguito River Valley, contains several misstatements, the most egregious being that the "San Dieguito River Valley land has always been flood plain, and has always been zoned agricultural--it was when the landowners bought it." The fact is that, within the 740 acres bounded by Interstate 5, Via de la Valle, the old El Camino Real and the North City West mesa, a good deal less than 200 acres is in the river flood plain.

Regarding the article by Nancy Ray, "Del Mar, S.D. Meet, Discuss San Dieguito Valley Future," (March 1): As a citizen of San Diego, a board member of the San Diego Audubon Society and a speaker at the recent joint meeting of the Del Mar and San Diego city councils, I feel that Ms. Ray's coverage of this event was negative and incomplete. The issues involved are greater than the question of whether tiny Del Mar is "pushing around" the Del Mar Fair Board or its larger neighbor, San Diego.

A benefactor who says he has a keen desire to preserve open space in San Diego County has offered to privately loan $1.8 million so 1,500 acres of pristine wilderness near Ramona can be included in plans for a regional park that will wind 43 miles from Del Mar to the foothills of Julian.

Of all the twists and turns in the San Dieguito River Valley, surely none is stranger than the one that pits Roger Revelle against the very people who would be expected to sing his praises. But the Roger Revelle of the San Dieguito River Valley is not the Revelle who is world-renowned as an oceanographer, former director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, co-founder of UC San Diego and one of the more distinguished and versatile men of science in this century.

If everyone has his own notion of what the San Dieguito River Valley Regional Park might mean to him, Richard Carrico has his, too: a landscaped history book. Carrico, a professor of American Indian history at San Diego State University, said the river drainage basin, from the foothills of Julian to its mouth at Del Mar, was home to San Diego County's earliest settlers.

If there is to be a San Dieguito River Valley regional park, its supporters will first have to contend with the likes of Hugh Oberg. Oberg is a born-and-bred cowboy who lives in Coronado, wears string ties and manages what he characterizes as "old and quiet" money--bankrolled by people who like to spend their afternoons at the Los Angeles Country Club.

It stretches for 43 miles--from the surf at Del Mar east to the forest behind Sutherland Reservoir. The first inhabitants were the San Dieguito Indians, a tribe of hunters who may have settled the area as early as 10,000 B.C. Now, the flatlands not too far from the San Dieguitos' long-buried encampments have been turned into golf courses and million-dollar "estate homes," safely inside private neighborhoods with locked gates.
