Barrio Logan community plan backers vow to continue fight

Proponents of Propositions B and C were delivered a stinging defeat on Tuesday, June 3, when voters citywide in a relatively low-turnout election rejected the Barrio Logan Community Plan Update, overturning the community-and-city council-approved plan by a nearly 20 percent margin. But community and environmental activists who backed the plan say they're not done yet.

"Barrio Logan is my home and my district, and I will immediately begin working on a new plan to protect it," said councilmember David Alvarez in a release from the Environmental Health Coalition on Wednesday.

While the council cannot approve the same plan, or a similar one, for at least another 12 months, a "substantially different" plan could be presented for consideration before then.

"Every neighborhood deserves a healthy and safe community, and Barrio Logan is no exception," offered coalition director Diane Takvorian. "The community’s goals, at the end of it all, will undoubtedly be triumphant, and we will work with city council to ensure Barrio Logan gets the long-overdue justice it deserves."

With the update's defeat, community zoning and other land-use issues will remain under the direction of the previous plan, last revisited in 1978. Backers of the update have yet to come forward with a modified proposal and say they're looking to the shipyard industry, which bankrolled the opposition campaign, and mayor Kevin Faulconer, a key leader among those seeking to overturn the community plan, to "advance a 'better' plan."
