    Del Mar Fairgrounds Adds Huge New Roof to the Horse Arena

    The Sierra Club has filed suit against the Del Mar Fairgrounds claiming a proposed project to upgrade and expand the fairgrounds fails to comply with environmental requirements.

    The plan includes a new hotel and condominium complex.

    The Sierra Club is concerned the large project could significantly destroy the recent $86 million San Dieguito Lagoon Restoration Project.

    Fairground officials said they have yet to receive the suit, so they cannot comment at this time.
