PETITION TO EXTEND THE INTERIM HEIGHT LIMITATION IN PORTIONS OF THE UPTOWN AREA OF THE CITY OF SAN DIEGO

To the Mayor and City Council, for the City of San Diego, California:

1. In July 2008, the City Council adopted the Interim Height Limitation, Ordinance No. 19773 (“IHO”), limiting heights for new construction in the following blocks of Uptown, where current zoning allowed 150 or 200 feet:

  65 feet (approx. 6 stories) along Fourth, Fifth and Sixth avenues, from Laurel St. to University Avenue.

•  65 feet (approx. 6 stories) along University Avenue, from Third Avenue to Park Blvd.

50 feet (approx. 5 stories) along Washington Street from Dove to Ibis Street in Mission Hill.

The IHO included a mandatory height limit north of Upas Street and a discretionary height limit south of Upas Street. The IHO was intended to last until the Uptown Community Plan update was complete, but it “sunsets” in January 2012 and the plan update is still not complete.

2. We, the undersigned, petition you to EXTEND the IHO until the Uptown Community Plan update is complete.

3. We do NOT want an alternative proposal to modify the IHO to be all discretionary.

4. The undersigned hereby certify under penalty of perjury that they own real property or a business, or reside in the Uptown community planning area, at the address identified below:

    Thank you for maintaining the height restriction. The zoning of 150-200 feet is incompatible with the character of the neighborhods and unfairly targets owners of older homes and retail businesses whose property values and quality of life are injured by buildings at 150-200 feet in height. The rights of people living and working in 1-3 story properties are equal to the rights of those planning to develop new properties.

    This is Mandatory, we are all tired of the developers determining the character of OUR neighborhoods.

    Keep the Interim Height Limit in place until the Community Plan Update is completed.

    The current plan is ineffective and does not reflect the wishes of Uptown residents, property owners and businesses.
