I started the website Understanding San Diego (understandingsd.com) to make our City’s backbone – its pipes, bike lanes, roads, buildings, fire stations, parks, et cetera – easy for people to understand.
The North Park Community Association (NCPA) elected officers and were updated on a number of important neighborhood issues, including battling graffiti, a citizens law enforcement patrol and this year’s Bird Park Summer Concert Series at its annual board meeting, held April 24.
The North Park Planning Committee deals with land use and development issues and is an advisory body to the Planning Commission and San Diego City Council on issues of urban design, public facilities and transportation.
The North Park Community Association is spearheading a project called North Park Kids and Music with the hope of bridging the gap caused by cuts in music programs across the San Diego Unified School District.
