St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church: DON'T DEMO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD!

This petition had 287 supporters

The St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church owns almost the entire block where these two houses are located on Indiana Street. This is the block between Park Blvd. and Indiana St. going east/west and between Robinson Ave. and Cypress Ave. going north/south. The block consists of the church and it’s administration buildings and a unique mix of commercial property and historic homes. Presently the church has a very large parking lot which it has decided it wants to expand and that is their reasoning for destroying these homes: because they want more parking.

Although this would normally not be allowed to happen with a regular homeowner, the church is being given special treatment and allowed to destroy these homes because of a religious exemption.

“This exemption excludes them from the historic review process, historic designation, and a Site Development Permit for relocation. As long as the church owns these houses they can complete any work to them without the historic review.” – City of San Diego Historic Resources


Please sign this petition asking them to PLEASE SAVE these historic gems, and to include them with any future development.  They are Historic, and part of our Hillcrest History, and worth saving.
