Words To Live By In The New Year

“I will seek elegance rather than luxury, refinement rather than fashion. I will seek to be worthy more than respectable, wealthy and not rich. I will studyhard, think quietly, talk gently, and act frankly. I will listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with an open heart. I will bear all things cheerfully, do all things bravely await occasions and hurry never. In a word I will let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common.” — William Ellery Channing (1780-1842)

Commissioners Set Hearing on North Embarcadero Visionary Plan

The Board of Port Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Jan. 11 on whether to issue an appealable coastal development permit for the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan Phase 1 Coastal Access Features Project. The meeting is at 2 p.m. in the board room of the Port Administration Building, 3165 Pacific Highway, San Diego. The project consists of four sub-phases: Phase 1A would include landscape and traffic improvements to West Broadway, from North Harbor Drive east to the railroad tracks. Phase 1B would realign North Harbor Drive from B Street Pier to Navy Pier, eastward of its present location and transition to existing alignments at Ash Street and F Street. The realigned road would enable construction of an approximately 105-foot wide Esplanade starting at the south edge of B Street Pier to the north edge of Navy Pier. The Esplanade would include a continuous bayfront promenade, storm water treatment system, a running/walking path, restrooms, kiosks, improved landscaping, and a public plaza at the foot of West Broadway. Phase 1C would include Broadway Pier design enhancements to create a cohesive waterfront plan connecting the Esplanade to Broadway Pier. Phase 1D would develop a public park/plaza within a 150-foot setback from the North Harbor Drive right-of-way on the Lane Field Development project site.

Voice Your Opinion


We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
