July 12, 2018 (Alpine) - A public hearing about the storm water management plan for the proposed Rancho Sierra residential subdivision in Alpine will be held on Friday, July 20, in San Diego.


The County of San Diego has set the hearing for its 9 a.m. session in the County Operations Center Chambers at 5520 Overland Ave.

The Rancho Sierra hillside project off South Grade Road, south of Interstate 8 and east of Tavern Road, is planned for 10 single-family residential lots.  


During the July 10 monthly “Hot Topics Business Breakfast“ meeting of the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce, Alpine resident Dr. James Lindeen talked about concerns about possible impacts if the storm water management plan for Rancho Sierra causes stagnant water.


Lindeen said he doesn’t oppose the project. He questioned whether the proposed water system of three large infiltration basins holding up to 56,000 gallons of storm water is adequate to prevent stagnation, mosquitoes and other health hazards.


At the hearing the public can ask questions about issues, including a possible modified storm water management plan; costs; county commitment to proper storm water system maintenance and monitoring, and county funding for prompt pumping if drainage stops.
