Controversy continues over Jack in the Box expansion in North Park

SAN DIEGO -- The Planned Development Permit to rebuild the Jack in the Box located at 2959 Upas St. remains under review by the City’s Developmental Services Department (DSD). For over one year, residents living near the restaurant, along with the North Park Planning Committee (NPPC), debated the merits of the Permit with the fast-food chain based on the proposed deviations to the zone’s current development regulations.

In January 2011 and again in October 2011, the NPPC voted unanimously to deny the permit. However, some residents fear the plan is close to approval and ignores their major concerns.

DSD must complete their report, which will note the NPPC’s recommendation, before the City’s Planning Commission decides whether to grant the permit. DSD project manager Michelle Sokolowski said, “The project has been revised in scope and design since its original submittal to a point where it is believed that [DSD] staff will provide a recommendation of approval.”
