SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego County Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved plans to put a $3.3 million sheriff's substation in Pine Valley.
The substation will house nine employees and replace an office leased from the Pine Valley Volunteer Fire Department since the 1970s, according to a county staff report. The lease expires at the end of April, with no option to renew.
"The board initially took action on a new sheriff's substation in Pine Valley over 13 years ago," Jacob said. "This new substation has long been a top priority for the community."
County officials settled on an unused one-acre plot of land in a 16-acre county park off Old Highway 80 after rejecting other locations in the East County mountain community.
The plan calls for the appropriation of $2.1 million for the project and for staff to solicit design and construction bids. A section of the park will be set aside for environmental mitigation.
Melissa Aquino of the Sheriff's Department said negotiations are under way to lease a storefront location until the new substation is built. While the lease with the fire agency is about to expire, the department has been assured it can remain in the current location until temporary quarters are ready, she said.
