Cabrillo Bridge Reopens After 5-Month Maintenance Shutdown

This Bridge leads to the ceremonial entrance to the Magic City of Dreams on the Hill, and should be reserved for ceremonial uses, shuttles, and emergency vehicles.
Instead masses of moving metal spewing noxious fumes and noise will assault the senses and health of pedestrians and runners while flowing through the Main Artery to the Heart of the pARK. Balboa pARK has the potential to become a modern "Noah's Ark" where people "Explore the Past - Create the Future."
Congratulations to The Horseless Carriage Club for helping people understand the past.

Balboa Park Centennial Group OKs Deal To End Agreement With City

The City's Politicians want this swept under the rug as quickly as possible without completing and publishing either an internal City Auditor or external Attorney General report.
City Attorney Goldsmith blessed awarding of the MOU without competition. City Mayor Sanders pushed it through, supported by Council Member Faulconer and Gloria, as well as Tony Young and other Council Members.
While BPCI Board Members continue to access Politicians, the Public sits back and wonders. As I asked over 3 years ago, "Who is watching the hen house (where is the Oversight)?"
Sadly the 3 minutes or less of non-Agenda Public Comment allowed to 1 person on a Tuesday at City Council meetings continues to fall on deaf ears.

Balboa Park Centennial Plans To Leverage December Nights, Offer Two Other Major Events

No Vision, no reason to support their lack of vision.
Their actions could be considered illegal if not criminal.
"Scam" - pay no attention to the Republicans pulling the strings that got Mayor Faulconer elected.

Balboa Park Centennial Committee Members Apologize For Failure

Thieves, Scoundrels, or just plain Stupid? The Board was entrusted by the Public, spent money on their friends, and threatened anyone that got in their way. The Politicians were the Architects, and now their Official Organization just wasted three years.
Syntropic Systems (me) and the "San Diego 2015: Celebrating a Century of Creativity" which includes "Balboa Park 2015", is ready to raise money and Make A Difference. My Team needs Official Status Recognition and base funding.
Time is ticking.

Roundtable: Balboa Park Fizzle; City Email Reversal; Affordable Housing Fee; Padres Hopes

"All is not lost, at least they came up with a logo"😜 Just what does that logo, costing $2.8M in taxpayer money, get you?
Entrepreneurial spirit? I submitted a full outline framework to the San Diego Tourism Marketing District Board in January 2011 that met all of the criteria that their paid consulting study called out!
File a FOIA or just ask SDTMD for the document.
What a bunch of Political Crap. Ask Scott Lewis for the numerous emails I sent to him begging for an investigation - and about their removal of my use of "Balboa Park 2015" as my business name from prior comments, even though I have the Ficitious Business Name Filed and a Business Fee paid to use it within the City of San Diego.
I thought that VOSD touts that it is an independent Voice for the People of San Diego?
I like Scott, yet wonder if he has been corrupted by the system within which he operates.

The "Other" Candidates Running For San Diego Mayor

Leadership and Vision appear to be oxymorons when hiring the San Diego City Mayor. It is more "Likability and Funding" by Special Interest Groups.
Is what San Diego City needs "more of the same" in a Career Politician?
The Political System actually allows for write-in Candidates to submit $500 and 200 valid signatures by November 5 to be a Qualified Candidate...
While I have collected the signatures and have the $500, the media money and attention is focused on the Career Politicians.
Vision and Leadership? Skills? Relating to Constituents? Understanding the Challenges? Understanding Solutions?
Visit and you'll find that I, as an even lesser known candidate (missed the ballot because only 186/243 signatures determined valid) have those.
I realize that investing without a high return makes no sense, and further investment of money into the Mayor's Race is futile by myself - and perhaps the other lesser known Candidates.
That does not mean that we should not work together to build San Diego into "Where Dreams Become Reality."
We just have to overpower the Politicians.

Exposition Fosters Confusion About Balboa Park History

In 1911 San Diego held a 3 Day party when City Park was renamed "Balboa Park.
In 1913 San Diego's Cabrillo National Monument was created on October 14 by President Woodrow Wilson.
On January 9, 1915 San Diego's Point Loma was home to the world's fastest cars for a 300 mile race on a six mile dirt track, with 50,000 people (city population 40,000) paying $1 each to watch the race. That historic race start/finish along Rosecrans Avenue became Naval Training Center San Diego in 1919, with construction starting in 1923.

On October 12, 2013 "It Begins With A Roar" as Cabrillo National Monument celebrates 100 years and the San Diego Region starts the Race to January 1, 2015.
Pre-1916 vehicles owned and driven by The Horseless Carriage Club, LJRG will start the weekend festivities at NTC Liberty Station's Ingram Plaza for the morning, followed by a drive along the historic race route with a side trip to Cabrillo National Monument. They will park at Cabrillo National Monument as a part of its Centennial Weekend Celebrations before heading down Canon Street.

Car Clubs and Transportation Enthusiasts are encouraged to dress up in clothing and costumes that match their era and creativity to hold "Creativity Festivals" within the San Diego Region's Communities.

While KPBS and others may be misled by the City of San Diego's focus on Balboa Park and the idea that 2015 should be a birthday party for this beloved location, there should be no doubt in anyone's mind that 1915 was a pivotal year in San Diego and the world's history.
"San Diego 2015: Celebrating a Century of Creativity, Building Toward a Millennium of Sustainability" focuses on showing off not only San Diego's creative results from the efforts of the past hundred years, it seeks to show off the world's results in San Diego while bringing to the Region the technologies and activities that will shape the world for the next 1000 years.

Celebrate Achievements by People - not a place.

Filner Has New Plans For Plaza de Panama

It is interesting that Todd Gloria brings up "Community Input" when he ignored the Community while continuing to push his Plaza de Panama Committee illegal agreements and Council approval.
Should Mr. Gloria be RECALLED by his constituents - that being the only recourse available to them through which to end his poor decisions?
Mayor Filner can implement changes, observe the results of those temporary changes, modify the changes, and move forward. People will moan and groan because they experience inconvenience, yet much as the closure of East El Prado showed positive outcomes, closure of Plaza de Panama to parking and valet will have positive outcomes.
Mayor Filner needs to ensure that disabled access is maintained and enhanced.

Head Of Balboa Park Centennial Stepping Down Due To Tourism Marketing District Issues

What? No funding from private Citizens???
Bob Filner is stopping the bleeding of Public Funds toward this private non-profit that the City Council and Mayor Sanders awarded a non-competitive MOU.
If there was anything of substance to their "planning" there would be private funding sources stepping up to sponsor and contribute, as well as individuals stepping up under the "America's Cup Committee" structure that they were supposed to establish.
