One Big 2020 Race Is Set, Another Is Still a Question
By Voice of San Diego
A little-known company is quietly buying up massive amounts of land in the Imperial Valley. VOSD’s Ry Rivard reported this week that Los Angeles-based Renewable Resources Group has already helped sell 33,000 acres to California’s most powerful water agency, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. But new documents he’s obtained raise fresh questions about those deals – and about what the company is seeking to do in Imperial. Hosts Scott Lewis, Sara Libby and Andrew Keatts sat down with Rivard to break down the company’s motives and explain why it matters. Also, we brought in Councilwoman Vivian Moreno, who has been heavily involved in housing and land use issues in San Diego. We asked Moreno for her thoughts on inclusionary housing fees and more. The interview with Moreno starts at minute 30. Subscribe to our daily newsletter at vosd.org/morningreport. Talk to us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
