September 11, 2013 (San Diego) – Today, Supervisors approved the acquisition of over 14 acres of vacant land adjacent to Borrego Valley airport. The purchase aims to create a buffer zone between the airport and private properties to protect approach and departure routes. The property is listed for sale at $20,000.
No one spoke in favor of the measure. One speaker, Robert Germann of Lakeside, spoke against, calling it a “waste of taxpayer money.”
