A New County Park in Alpine? Department of Parks & Recreation Response

Submitted By Cynthia Bonsignore – September 23, 2017

To all concerned for the future if Alpine’s County Park,

The following is the response WE concerned Alpine residents received from the Director of Parks S. D., concerning the establishment of a Park in Alpine for ALL to enjoy with no daylight time restrictions. This letter is to clarify the position of the S. D. County Parks authority, as to the disposition of the PLDO funds ($900k) for a County Park v a school refurbishment program.


“Dear Ms. Bonsignore:
At the request of Supervisor Dianne Jacob and County Chief Administrative Officer Helen Robbins-Meyer, Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) staff reviewed your inquiry dated September 2, 2017 regarding the use of Park Land Dedication Ordinance (PLDO) funding in Alpine.

DPR promotes health and wellness through the development and operation of parks throughout the County of San Diego. New public parks or the payment of PLDO fees are also required as a part of new residential subdivisions. PLDO fees are deposited in community specific funds and are used by the County to create or enhance recreational opportunities for community residents. In accordance with Board of Supervisor’s Policy F-26 (attached), there is a three step process in place before PLDO funds can be allocated toward a new recreation project: Community Planning Group prioritization, DPR review and recommendation, and Board of Supervisor approval.

Your email expressed your concern regarding the apparent designation of $900,000 in Alpine PLDO funds toward a sports complex at Joan MacQueen Middle School. DPR has not made any recommendations to the Board this year regarding Alpine PLDO funding and there has been no allocation of Alpine PLDO funding toward this project. DPR will be hosting a public meeting this fall to obtain community input on a park in Alpine and we are renewing our efforts to obtain parkland in Alpine.

Thank you for your interest in your community. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Jill Bankston, Chief of Development, at (858) 966-1360 or Jill. Bankston(”

Sincerely, BRIAN ALBRIGHT – Director

Eucalyptus Trees Being Removed in Front of Town Hall (Woman’s Club) on Alpine Blvd

September 2017

Dear Alpinians…about our trees being removed in front of the Woman’s Club on Alpine Blvd….

Several years ago we took out some Eucalyptus trees in front of the Alpine Woman’s Club. We hated to do it but there were two main reasons, invasive roots, but mostly liability. Please read the original article about that HERE.

Recently, a large limb fell, during that last wind storm. It fell into the Alpine Sun’s parking lot. Thank God there was no one in their car at the time or near that limb. That got us to thinking again about the trees that were still there.

We applied to the County for a grant and thanks to Dianne Jacob we received the money to have the trees removed.  And, so glad we did because after they finished, we saw one of the trees was rotting from within as seen in the photo.

So this is why we had to remove the trees. As for Replacing the trees. we have lots of suggestions and are open to yours. We must do something creative with that corner. Please Send your suggestions to”
