  • Public Comment

    1. Linda Sheridan, representing San Diego Cultural Arts Alliance - Concerns are the historic core, open spaces within the Reuse Plan are now shown as parking spaces, parking, and the Foundation's intent to not use federal funds may make rents less affordable.

    2. Irene Patton, Concerns are the plans for the live-work spaces at NTC.

    3. Pat Goddard, representing the Maritime Heritage and Cultural Center, - Concerns are the areas outside the Historic Core by the channel where there is parking shown - this may take away opportunities for maritime museum spaces.

    4. Virginia Silverman, Concern is the Civic, Arts and Culture Center Foundation Board's meetings are planned to be private - she feels that they should be open to the public.
