Heritage Park Master Plan Improvement
The Heritage Park Project proposes that the County of San Diego enter into an agreement with Pacific Hospitality Group (PHG - owner and operator of the Hacienda Hotel) to develop and operate Heritage Park for lodging and other purposes. (Heritage Park is located on Juan Street, across from the Hacienda Hotel.) Development includes site improvements and the creation of 84 guest rooms.
The 84 units would come from converting six existing Victorian buildings for 21 units and building four new structures to provide 63 units. No new parking is proposed, as the plan utilizes 45 spaces existing at Heritage Park and an additional 41 spaces in the lot controlled by the Hacienda Hotel at the corner of Juan and Harney. The county document includes drawings and an analysis of many possible environmental impacts, all of which are proposed to be "No impact" or "Less than significant impact."
