SDG&E Carmel Mission Powerline Tree Information

Submitted by ken on Fri, 12/08/2017 - 12:52

SDG&E has cited concerns about tree damage to the powerlines to suggest cutting down or severely trimming up to 75 trees in the Carmel Mission Park powerline corridor (just north of the "Bay Club", formerly "Pacific Athletic Club"). Enclosed are some documents relating to that project as proposed to the "MAD Subcommittee" (Maintenance Assessment District or MAD) of the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board (CVCPB) over the last 4 months. Note that no decision has been made on this proposal, and the issue will next be heard at the CVCPB meeting on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 7:00 PM at the Carmel Valley Library on Townsgate. Contact information for SDG&E on this project is Greg Peck (, 619-405-8120) or Michael Daleo (, 858-654-8630). Contact information for the City Council office is Barbara Bry ( or see the CD1 Web Page.) Also, see the Carmel Mission Park overview document, the SDG&E Tree Information document, and the SDG&E Tree Initial Draft Proposal document.

Submitted by ken on Thu, 06/30/2016 - 18:03

The City Council approved the One Paseo project at their recent meeting. That approval was for a very specific project. Going forward, it's reasonable for the community to watch that what was approved is actually what is built. Here's a link to the final One Paseo Documents from the City Council Meeting on June 27, 2016. This includes community plan updates, ordinances, project plans, and the FEIR.

SDG&E Powerline Proposal in Carmel Valley, March 2016

Submitted by ken on Thu, 03/24/2016 - 13:55

So, SDG&E has proposed expanding the electric transmission lines through Carmel Valley. The Final Environmental Report (FEIR) is available review and download on the project website: 2016 Penasquitos Transmission FEIR. The proposed route would run down the eastern edge of Pacific Highlands Ranch to Pensquitos Canyon, and then westward to the Torrey Hills electric substation. There is a proposed route that runs down Carmel Mountain Road to East Ocean Air Drive. If you are concerned about these alignments, you should review the available documents.

One Paseo Environmental Addendum, March 2016

Submitted by ken on Mon, 03/21/2016 - 17:17

The City of San Diego has posted the latest addendum to the One Paseo Environmental Report on the City website (see: "The New One Paseo Addendum"). This finalizes the environmental information that Kilroy is required to provide and the City is required to post before the project goes to the City Planning Commission and the City Council. It is my understanding that the project will go to the City Planning Commission in late April (possibly April 21, 2016?) and to the San Diego City Council a few weeks later.

This update and proposed approval is for the "New One Paseo" project, which reduces the traffic by about 50% by making the retail and office components significantly smaller, while leaving the residential development unchanged. This is not a perfect solution, as it leaves a large residential development at the corner of Del Mar Heights Road and High Bluff Drive. However, it does significantly reduce traffic and building heights along El Camino Real and at the corner of Del Mar Heights Rd and El Camino Real. It also makes reductions in the amount of street widening and additional turn lanes proposed for the development.
