San Diego Group, ‘Save Our Heritage’, Opposes SB 10

The San Diego group, Save Our Heritage Organization (SOHO) is asking San Diegans to contact our State Senators immediately to oppose Senate Bill 10 (SB 10). One problem, of course, is that one of our state senators, Toni Atkins, is a co-sponsor of the bill.

SOHO is extremely concerned that Senator Weiner, the bill’s author, refused to provide any protections for historic resources under this bill. The group stated:

This Planning and zoning: housing development bill is now on its way to the Senate to approve Assembly revisions. If approved, it then goes directly to Governor Newsom for his approval. There are no protections for historic resources in this bill

SOHO strongly urges you to contact your State Senator and vigorously oppose SB 10.

They’ve put together a “Sample Letter”:

Dear Senator NAME:

SB 10 includes no exemptions or protections for designated or potentially historic resources. While there may be differences implemented from city to city, this proposed bill leaves historical resources without any clear protections. This will destroy many older neighborhoods as well as cultural landscapes and historic resources of all types.

We respectfully urge you to OPPOSE SB 10 in the current form.
