Primary agenda items: Discussion about Balboa Park’s Plaza de Panama plans (aka: the Irwin Jacobs Plan) which seriously impacts both of our archery ranges in Balboa Park. Review strategies for plan of action for dialogues with the City and Balboa Park, and keeping archers in San Diego informed on potential actions by the City.
This is a link to early documents filed by the City of San Diego Historical Resources Board in 2011. Starting on page 23/32, architectural drawings and rendering can be seen of the proposed bypass bridge from the SE side of the Cabrillo Bridge, over targets 1-6, into the Alcazar Parking Lot (bathrooms & SDA storage shed removed).
While the Jacobs plan may seem drastic, please also have a look at the alternative plans proposed by SOHO (Save Our Heritage Organization…with no consideration for saving San Diego’s archery heritage!). Look for Proposals B, B1 and B2.
