Mission Bay Plans Moving Forward Reluctantly

Plans for redeveloping De Anza Cove, in the northeast corner of Mission Bay, Calif., moved forward Tuesday (Nov. 5), but not everyone was excited about the waves of change being proposed.

According to CBS 8, conservationists, who want to protect 166 acres of land, were disappointed when the Mission Bay Park Committee approved the De Anza Cove Revitalization plans.

“The plans that the city is proposing is far too focused on over commercialization of this part of the bay that is supposed to explicitly be habitat focused, environmentally focused,” said San Diego Audubon’s Rebecca Schwartz-Lesberg, Rewild Mission Bay Project Manager.

The AD HOC Committee and the Mission Park Board presented two alternative plans.

Alternative plan one would entail more recreation on the south end and alternative plan two would include recreation on the south end of the cove. Both called for bike and walking paths, sports fields, camping, golfing and a restaurant. Both received reluctant votes.
