Relinquish Control of the Building Located at 606 South 30th Street

    1. Petition by

      Save Our Barrios Coalition

We, the undersigned, petition to Mayor Bob Filner, Councilman David Alvarez, and all other city officials and persons with jurisdiction in Logan to relinquish control of the building located at 606 South 30th Street. We feel that this building in its current neglected state under the control of the city has become an eyesore and potential hazard, as well an unfortunate under utilization of a great building. We feel that the city should give control of the building to the Save Our Barrios Coalition, which is comprised of multiple organizations who are also working towards the betterment of the community along with certain efforts made by the city. We feel that Save Our Barrios Coalition will better utilize this space and fulfill certain needs to the community that are not being met as of now. We, members of the community and undersigned fully understand and agree with the demands listed above.

To:
Mayor Bob Filner, Councilman David Alvarez
Relinquish Control of the Building Located at 606 South 30th Street

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      We need a mayor who is more concerned with the City of San Diego than this person is.

      W In this time of budget cuts and facilities closures, who better to run the spaces utilized by the community than the community themselves?

      I fully back and support a space where the primary purpose is to serve the community.

      There are examples worldwide where public spaces have been transferred into a public open space as a way of reducing cost. For years Logan and other neighborhoods south of I-8 have faced disparities. Now the city faces budget cuts, and simple social services, such as libraries hours have faced cutbacks.

      Instead of complaining about these inequalities this building would give the community ownership and in turn added value to community. All while reducing our dependence on state funding. It is a win, win situation. This will allow for a variety in creative, and practical approaches in improving and self-sustaining the community.

      Since we live near the space, we care most deeply about issues that affect our community. This will allow us to respond to local demands by collective problem solving in shaping our local environment to make local decisions.

      This building is a reflection of our community. The only hospital we had, Bay View, has not provided medical assistance for years. These and other neglected sites should shame “America’s Finest City.”

      Our community has endured many obstacles. This building and its leadership will reflect the people it serves. It will be a resource and gathering place serving a cross-generational populace. Where young people can learn from elders and vice versa.

      The Save Our Barrios Coalition (SOBC) and community members first raised the contradiction of these closed spaces at the Congreso de Barrios we organized at the new Logan Library on January 29, 2011. The SOBC continues to organize and we would like that public dialogue to become a reality.
