  • Lost roads of San Diego:Sorrento Rd., Smilax, Edelweis

  • There was also once a Smilax Road in Sorrento Valley, one in a series of short roads named for local flora. It paralleled the railroad tracks on their south side, but now it’s gone, the victim of freeway building in the 1960s. In its stead there’s another road, nearer the tracks, named Roselle Street.

  • How to go south on 805 from Sorrento Valley

  • These are folks driving east out of the west end of the Sorrento Valley, Sorrento Road, maybe, who would like to go south on 805 but can’t get there from where they are without crawling along on surface streets or by going north on 5 for a couple of miles to the next exit (Carmel Valley Road),

  • Worthwhile hike to the Corner House

  • Mainly, I remember the walk. Up Sorrento Valley Road, across the Peñasquitos River, past countless modest-sized high-tech outfits, plus gyms, dance studios, and empty lots. I’m walking mostly on grass or dirt ’cause, again, no sidewalk. Nobody figures people will use their two legs to get to places around here

  • Mira Mesa signage unwanted in Sorrento Valley

  • About 100 concerned citizens and business owners poured into the Mira Mesa Community Planning Group meeting room on September 16; the majority of people were citizens of Sorrento Valley, there to voice their support for the removal of “Mira Mesa” signs that had popped up all over Sorrento Valley in March.

  • Sorrento Valley, 5, Mira Mesa, 5

  • On Monday, March 16, at the bi-annual Mira Mesa Community Planning Group board elections, hundreds of voters turned out to elect representatives for ten open seats. The unprecedented turnout was the latest indicator of a competition between the neighborhoods of Sorrento Valley and Mira Mesa. Both sides took five seats each; this was seen as a major victory for Sorrento Valley.

  • Sorrento Valley lacks stickiness

  • It’s among the safest of neighborhoods. A glance at crime statistics shows negligible amounts in Sorrento Valley proper (most months: no murder, no rape, 20 nonresidential burglaries). The place is either an off-hours fortress with a Brink’s security apparatus, or what is there — aside from a few thousand folk who live in the Water Ridge and Pacific Ridge developments — is mostly business property under lock and guard.
