Hi K,

Amber is right on with her facts. The answer is no, it is protected property due to the species of habitat (both animal & plant material).

The great part about San Diego versus other Cities in CA is that San Diego has had an active hand in providing and protecting open space in conjunction with home and commercial developers. Each time a community has been built in the past 10+ years, the developer has been required to purchase land separate from their development that is then donated to the City or State and becomes protected property.

Best of luck to you,

It is part of the Torrey Pines State Reserve expansion, which includes over 180 acres of undeveloped property containing high quality Torrey Pines woodland habitat. The reserve is an extension of Torrey Pines State Park and is owned and under the jurisdiction of the State of California Park and Recreation Development. Both wildlife corridors (Portofino and Via Mar Valle) shall be preserved and enhanced to provide appropriate wildlife linkage to Los Penasquitos Lagoon.
