City plans for connecting Byron Street in the Peninsula community to Plum Street that fell short opened up land the city will use to build a larger park than originally agreed on for the Peninsula Community Plan.
The city plans to take back the north half of the Plum Street land between Avenida de la Portugal and Canon Street. Added to the planned park, the undeveloped natural street makes the park's southern border straight.
An owner of the house on Canon Stret south of Plum STreet will get the south land behind his house. Already not in use for a paved Plum Street path to Canon Street, all the street's land has no planned city uses. Right of ways owned by the city were given up long ago.
Parks and Recreation requested a land transfer to the department to add half the land that runs 70 feet along Canon Street to the mini-park land on Canon Street. The Plum Street land currently zoned for parks and open space fits in the city's plan to add open space for locals to use in the Point Loma Peninsula community. A larger mini-park would restore open space to the developing San Diego Bay community.
