The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted to vacate road easements adjacent to Via Puerta Del Sol.
The supervisors’ 5-0 vote September 17 returns rights to those roadway portions to the owners of the five parcels, who will pay the approximate $2,500 processing cost.
When the property was developed, irrevocable offers of dedication were obtained from the property owners. The purpose of those easement dedications was to reserve a future right of way for the possible realignment and construction of Via Puerta Del Sol between Olive Hill Road and Valle Del Sol. At the time, Via Puerta Del Sol was classified as a light collector road in the county’s Circulation Element.
Via Puerta Del Sol was deleted from the Circulation Element in March 1993, and the county’s Department of Public Works no longer has plans to construct a new and realigned roadway.
The county received a request from the property owners to vacate the dedication easement, which would allow those parcel owners to utilize more of their property. The vacation of the easements will not affect the current operation of the roadway or utility service.
During the Bonsall Sponsor Group’s June 3 meeting, the sponsor group members voted unanimously to recommend vacating the easements.
