Petco Park 2014: More Than A Ballpark But Not All That Was Promised

How much of downtown's resurgence can be attributed to Petco Park? Other cities' downtowns have bounced back over the past ten years too, and they all didn't have new baseball or football stadiums. Los Angeles added thousands of new residents downtown over the past ten years (some of that gain is probably due to the LA Live development). I'm sure that Petco Park can be credited with some of downtown's resurgence, but I think downtown would have improved without a new stadium, and maybe developers wouldn't have overbuilt condos in the short term.

Pedestrians Targeted In San Diego Police Sweep

mclanea, your comment about parking tickets is sort of off-subject for this article, but I want to mention that I had a similar experience in downtown San Diego with an alleged 2-hour parking violation. The City fought me all the way to Superior Court, where a judge finally acknowledged that my GPS data trumped the City's weak evidence. It took a year to go through the entire arduous ticket appeal process, but in the end, the City refunded my fine plus court fees.

Pedestrians Targeted In San Diego Police Sweep

The police could hand out jaywalking tickets all day long at the intersection of Park Boulevard and University Avenue. Pedestrians frequently ignore traffic signals when hurrying to board their bus or when they get off the bus. They seem pretty reckless to me.

Filner Has New Plans For Plaza de Panama

SOHO sued the city, claiming that the Jacobs plan violated municipal code 126.0504, which, as I understand its application to the plan, says that a parking lot is a "reasonable use" of the Plaza, and, as a result, the parking lot must remain. While Judge Timothy Taylor did not find fault with Jacobs' proposed bridge and underground parking garage, he agreed with SOHO regarding the "reasonable use" issue, killing the Jacobs plan.

I'd like to see cars removed from the Plaza, but I don't see how any plan gets around the city's municipal code. Can someone please explain how the Filner plan does not violate the city's municipal code?

Filner Has New Plans For Plaza de Panama

Doesn't Mayor Filner's plan violate the same city municipal code that the Jacobs plan did?
