Community leaders gather in La Jolla for Props B and C

By Ashley Mackin

On May 16, Speaker of the Assembly Toni Atkins, assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez, District 1 City Councilmember Sherri Lightner and La Jolla Community Planning Association board president Joe LaCava met at the Cuvier Club in La Jolla to announce their support for Propositions B and C, and to encourage voters to vote “yes” on the measures in the June 3 election.

Propositions B and C put to a vote whether the city council-approved Barrio Logan Community Plan will stand. The draft plan rezones Barrio Logan and requires businesses that use toxic and/or flammable chemicals to operate further away from newly drawn residential zones and schools.

“La Jolla represents a perfect example of planning done right (and that’s why we’re here),” Atkins said. “This community has preserved its culture, its history, and its beauty through the community planning process — that’s exactly what Barrio Logan is trying to do.”
Atkins and LaCava contend that if a community-proposed and city council-approved community plan could be overturned in Barrio Logan, it could happen anywhere.

After the San Diego City Council approved the Barrio Logan community plan, members of the shipyard and repair industry collected 105,000 signatures to overturn the plan, requiring the Proposition be put to vote on June 3.

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, joined by former San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and military representatives, held a conference May 21 downtown to announce their opposition to the propositions.
