“The valleys and canyons are San Diego's priceless asset...It is of great importance that San Diego now, at the last moment, preserve all the remaining undeveloped valleys and canyons. Keep the building up on the expansive flats above.”

The Mesas, Valleys & Canyons KAN evaluates how San Diego's many diverse communities may preserve and utilize our expansive network of canyons as a treasured amenity, while looking for opportunities for recreation and environmental stewardship in our valleys.
