Petition Closed
Petitioning City Clerk Elizabeth Maland and 9 others

Reject the Plaza de Panama Project as currently designed.

The current proposal for a bypass bridge and roadway to be built onto the historic Cabrillo Bridge in Balboa Park is extremely destructive and would forever alter the iconic and ceremonial entrance to the park and the historic landscape that surrounds it.

Balboa Park belongs to all the people of San Diego and it is the public who should decide its future. This project is the seed of privatization and commercialization of the people’s park.

The plan also would disenfranchise many with the introduction of a paid parking garage in the core of the park.

The plan also threatens to strip the park of its National Historic Landmark District status.

Please ask that the City of San Diego reject the current proposal.
