PACIFIC BEACH, Calif. (KGTV) - A camping company presented a new proposal for the vacated property in De Anza Cove Wednesday night at the Pacific Beach Planning Group.

Representatives from Campland by the Bay, a camping and RV site located next to De Anza Cove, unveiled their vision for the site.

Their current property, which is being leased from the City of San Diego, is slated to be turned into wetlands when their lease expires in 2020.

Jacob Gelfand, VP of Operations for Campland, said they are planning on moving to the site formerly occupied by the De Anza Trailer Resort.

In the preferred alternative currently being considered by the City of San Diego, 40 acres of camping would be allowed on the De Anza peninsula.

In the proposal put forth by Gelfand, 52 acres would be reserved for camping and RV’s.

Both proposals would add more wetlands than currently exist, however, the city’s plan adds more.

The city's latest plan can be viewed here. It must still go through and environmental review process.

Campland's proposal can be seen in this powerpoint.

Final approval for the site likely won't come until 2020.
