County of San Diego Local Coastal Program
On November 12, 2014, the Coastal Commission awarded a planning grant to the County to update the Local Coastal Program (LCP) for the portion of the County within the coastal zone. The LCP includes a Land Use Plan (LUP) and an Implementation Plan (IP). The LCP covers approximately two square miles of land in the community of San Dieguito and includes San Dieguito Park. The purpose of the LCP is to guide development within the coastal zone, provide ground rules for future development and protect coastal resources.
With an updated and certified LCP, the County will be able to assume responsibility for issuing coastal development permits, which will streamline the development review process for property owners by eliminating the need to go to the Coastal Commission for approval. The LCP is expected to be completed by spring 2017.
Questions about the LCP update can be directed to Dennis Campbell at Dennis.Campbell@sdcounty.ca.gov or 858-505-6380.
