A leading member of the group, Neighbors for a Better San Diego, will be speaking tonight, Wed., July 5 on Senate Bill 10, at The Thursday Club at 1224 Santa Barbara Street in Point Loma.

The event is at 6 pm.

Neighbors for a Better San Diego has been leading the fight against Senate Bill 10 (SB10) and sponsored a string of neighborhood rallies in early May against the measure.

However, they have not been active in OB or Point Loma, and at the suggestion of the OB Rag that the group connect with people on the coast (and other places), this is an effort to do so.

This event was organized by some people active in the local community.

With all due respect, others on the Peninsula have been very engaged with Neighbors for a Better San Diego and this issue for a very long time. My husband has delivered approx. 100 “No on SB 10” signs and I have engaged neighbors, elected officials and planning commissioners both directly and through the media (including this one). We are holding a neighborhood meeting and urge others to do the same. We have to stop this disastrous direction the city seems so hell bent to adopt.

LBruce – right on! Thanks to both of you.

Hope San Diego passes SB10.
Rather have quadplexes and multiple units and more neighbors and homes that are actually less impactful than huge single family vacation mansions.

Teresa – just so you know, SB10 has nothing to do with and will not require affordable housing and it will help eliminate any public participation in future planning issues.

Great turnout. What’s the rush to push through SB10..and use San Diego as the test case? Over 100 in the crowd. Signs there and leaflets. Momentum is building.

Agreed! And the OB Rag got a shout-out by Geoff Hueter, one of the presenters from NFABSD.

I live in midway district and I agree T.Gloria and T.Adkins are king and queen not the public servants they really are. They passed too many new regulations during Covid lockdowns knowing we were not allowed to be involved. Those regulations need to be rescinded asap. Zoom is not adequate representation no matter what leaders and developers say.
Putting 4,200+ homes in Midway is more density than downtown Manhattan NY without any studies of how negative it would affect people who already live here. It will totally ruin our BEACH VIBE..
Gloria cares more about strangers and visitors by being a welcoming city than the tax payers who elected him. Awful… THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO MONEY UNTIL THEY TAX WORKING AMERICANS who I said are paying for everything and getting nothing in return.. ohh, ignored is what they’re getting..
The American dream has been changed into the Developers dream average citizens got sold to the highest paying developers. We have a housing crisis. We’re loosing our country, our safety and our peace of mind. What else is left? Not how I want to live and I’m sure others don’t want to either. What happened to choices? Is there Only One Plan being considered for the solution to Midway? Overbuilding is not going to fix the housing crisis. You CANT BUILD YOUR WAY OUT OF the housing crisis.

“We have a housing crisis because the border is open we have to discuss this elephant in the room and close it. ”

Aside from the fact that’s not why we have a housing crisis, it leans a bit racist don’t you think? I agree with others that an explosion of high density housing will not yield the claimed results of making it more affordable that so many claim, but to say we have this housing crisis because of the border is just downright absurd. If you truly belive what you said then it’s kind of hard to muster up much sympathy for you.

Chris, yes that rant made some good points, until the comments about the border — which have been removed — and yes they did lean racist. Thanks for pointing it out.

Before the pandemic, there were more people unemployed in this country than there were jobs available. Now, there are more jobs available than there are people willing to take those jobs. Way more. You could make the argument that we need those that are crossing the border. Here in San Antonio, where I reside, the economy would probably collapse without them.
