Many may think that park expansion is a good thing. There is more occurring than meets the eye. The City of San Diego intentionally restricts private owners from developing their property. This is in opposition to what the Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP) is supposed to do. The City ignores the actual zoning of the East Elliott property (1 dwelling unit per 40,000 square feet - about 1 acre) and imposes a 1 dwelling unit per ownership parcel density. An owner of a 25 acre parcel would only be allowed 1 dwelling unit. The owners are unable to develop their property at this limited density. The City then comes along and offers to buy selected parcels at low prices. That is one of the tactics the City employs to gain property for the park expansion. It violates private property rights. If the city followed the MSCP it would gain 75% of the property at no cost. Rather the City seeks to buy all the property, needlessly spending millions of dollars of taxpayer funds. It is wrongful conduct. It goes on under the radar.
