Otay Mesa is a sprawling 9,300-acre community along San Diego’s Mexican border that’s in the midst of formulating its plan for future growth. But one 50-acre property could blow it all up.
Otay Mesa’s new community plan has been in the works since 2001 and has cost millions to produce. It’s expected to go before the City Council for final approval next month.
As the project moves forward, however, there’s major disagreement over the future of one particular property, despite widespread agreement over the other 9,250 acres.
