Greetings, VC Trails!! 

I hope you’re staying cool in this heat wave and have a safe 4th of July holiday today!

The County is making progress making plans for the Rancho Lilac Preserve and wants community input.  The invitation from the county is below.  All who are interested in this property should attend to learn and provide feedback.  See you there! 

You’re invited to a workshop for the Public Access Plan (PAP) component of the Rancho Lilac Preserve Resource Management Plan (RMP). Join staff from the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation, SANDAG, and Caltrans to learn about the PAP and provide feedback on three draft trail alternatives.
