 A $33 million plan to remove cars from the center of Balboa Park was announced this week.  Completion of the project  would result in a new structure, just in time for  the park’s 100th birthday in 2015.  The plan would require the elimination of 67 parking spaces, and result in the addition of 900 spaces in a parking garage.  Debate still is to be had regarding whether the structure will charge an hourly fee.

However, the plan will also result in a more beautiful Balboa Park and easier access to the beautiful historical architecture of Balboa Park.  To vote or voice your opinion, visit Sign On San Diego on the web.  Currently 44% of the vote believes the area should not be used for cars, and 35% of the vote believes the structure should be free.  20% of the people who voted suggested leaving the plaza just the way it is.
