Filner Has New Plans For Plaza de Panama

TD, I can't believe that no one has responded to you directly. The issue is not just 126.0504 but 126.0504(i)(3) specifically. In analyzing the proposal it was determined that the proposed project requires a "Historical Resources Deviation for Substantial Alteration of a Designated Historical Resource or Within a Historical District." That being the case, there are 4 findings required to grant that deviation. The judge apparently could not make the finding of "no reasonable beneficial use of a property." Apparently, the judge found that a parking lot was a "reasonable beneficial use" and thus the deviation must be rejected. That does *not* mean that the plaza must be maintained as a parking lot or that the parking/traffic patterns can't be altered. It has been used as a parking lot, the parking/circulation has been revised, the plaza has on occasion been closed to cars. While car-oriented uses might offend aesthetics and usability, they apparently don't affect the "historic resource" and therefore the current use or any future variation is not in conflict with the municipal code.

Nitpick: Rancho Penasquitos is no longer part of Council District 1, boundaries were changed by last year's redistricting.
