Resource Management Plan
The County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation is preparing a Resource Management Plan and a Public Access Plan for the 3,490-acre Ramona Grasslands Preserve. This involves compiling information on the Preserve’s existing resources, proposing ways to sustain those resources over time, and identifying opportunities for the public to access and enjoy this open space.
The first public workshop for the project was held on November 18, 2009. Baseline biological and cultural resources results were discussed and public input was taken regarding the proposed Public Access Plan. The second public workshop for the project was held on August 19, 2010. The purpose of this meeting was to provide a status update on the Public Access Plan for the Ramona Grasslands and what progress has been made since the first public workshop. The meeting explained the steps the County has taken in order to develop a preliminary preferred public access plan. These steps included the development of three conceptual public access plans based on public input from the first workshop and additional meetings with five individual stakeholder groups in order to further refine access opportunities and constraints. The public then had the opportunity to ask questions and make comments regarding the preliminary preferred public access plan. Items from both workshops and workshop summary results are provided below.
