Hillcrest Flag Project calls for community inputBreaking News, Top Highlights Monday, February 6th, 2012
The Uptown Planners will collaborate on the Hillcrest Pride Flag project on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 6pm at the Joyce Beers Community Center on Vermont Street just north of University Avenue. Hillcrest residents and those in surrounding areas are invited to participate in the meeting to let the planners know that the flag project is important to the neighborhood.
The Hillcrest Pride Flag Project was first presented to the committee on Oct. 4, 2011 in an effort to put the initiative on the table for voting at a future meeting. The board will reassess the project and how it will affect the community in Tuesday’s meeting.
If implemented, the project would feature a 65-foot flag pole flying a rainbow flag at the intersection of Normal Street and University Avenue. A small plaza would surround the flag area.
The Uptown Planners committee is an advisory board that makes recommendations to the City of San Diego on land use and projects within the uptown area which includes Hillcrest, Bankers Hill, Mission Hills, and Park West neighborhoods.
Tuesday’s meeting would be the first in a three-step approval process which, if passed, would also require a vote by the San Diego Planning Commission, followed by an approval from the City Council.
