DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) - A plan for a sweeping makeover of the Del Mar fairgrounds in San Diego County has hit a bump - or maybe a mountain.
The North County Times says a judge on Tuesday found flaws in the project's environmental impact report. The judge said more work is needed analyzing traffic, water and greenhouse gas issues.
The fairgrounds master plan calls for replacing antiquated exhibit halls, building a health club, creating underground parking with rooftop sports fields and putting up a nearly 200-square-foot electronic sign.
The 22nd District Agricultural Association, which runs the fairgrounds, says the judge's ruling will only set back the project a couple of months.
However the Sierra Club, which challenged the environmental report, says fixing it could take years.
