The San Diego (Calif.) City Council’s Land Use and Housing Committee voted 3-1 Wednesday (June 12) to forward a proposed five-year lease extension for the Campland on the Bay campground to the full council, according to FOX 5. 

The extension would enable Campland to remain in its current 46-acre space in the northeast corner of Mission Bay Park and expand to a large swath of the adjacent De Anza Cove mobile home park, which recently closed following decades of litigation with mobile home park residents.

Campland would take over the Mission Bay RV Resort, located at the center of the De Anza Cove mobile home park.

The proposed extension is contingent on Campland making various improvements to the former mobile home park, such as removing around 100 old and decrepit mobile homes. Campland would also nearly double its number of RV rental slots from 560 to 970.

The proposal comes as the city considers multiple redevelopment options for the northeast corner of the park, including a wetland restoration project drafted by San Diego Audubon. The city is conducting environmental and feasibility studies of the area, which are expected to be completed around the time the five-year lease ends.
