IT TAKES CONSENSUS- accomplishment through unity
On September 27, 2014, 450 residents from the communities of Bay Park, Bay Ho, Overlook Heights and Clairemont came together and marched down Morena Blvd in protest to the Planning Department's effort to bust our existing 30 ft building height limit.
The balloon was hoisted to 60 feet, pin-pointing the new height limit which City Planners want.
Limiting heights, to protect our public view corridor, was the first effort to halt the Planning Department from their overzealous attempt to re-zone key parcels along Morena Blvd.
The march, organized by a grass-roots organization, Raise The Balloon.org (RTB), was successful in laying the groundwork for the public voice. RTB's goal is to galvanize public participation in the Community Plan Update (CPU) now underway.
RTB holds neighborhood meetings to educate residents about the local Community Planning Group process.
RTB also hosts meetings between residents and prospective builder-developers in order to create working relationships that can facilitate the permit and approval process.
