Info from Civic San Diego presented at the March meeting on the status of Morley Green, the Skateworld parcel, and the adjacent vacant lot can be read here and here. The state still needs to release the property to the city of San Diego after agreeing with the identified permissible use catagories. Morley Green is identified as "government use" for a park, and the other two properties are identified as "future development" because of potential commercial uses.
