(For all things Balboa Park related, go to balboapark.org . Under "park information," you'll see links to history, 2015, the Balboa Park Conservancy and the planned changes to the Plaza de Panama.) San Diego’s Panama-California Exposition in 1915-16 in Balboa Park celebrated the opening of the canal, left behind the San Diego Zoo and brought the Navy to San Diego. The follow-up 1935-36 California Pacific International Exposition rescued San Diego from the Depression and left the legacy of the Old Globe Theatre. Now park planners and supporters are revving up a yearlong centennial celebration in 2015 with the dual goal of filling up hotel rooms in the offseason and making the park a permanent, five-star attraction on the world’s travel map.
Less than four years off, planning the centennial of San Diego's 1915 expo in Balboa Park picked up speed Wednesday as a City Council committee endorsed a framework for running what members called a "magnificent" and "terrific" opportunity to boost the economy and remind the world of San Diego's assets. Forwarded to the full council was a memorandum of understanding outlining the responsibilities of the city and the newly formed Balboa Park Celebration nonprofit corporation, assigned to run a year-long party. About $750,000 in tourist taxes and $300,000 from local foundations has been set aside as seed money toward an as-yet unspecified budget with the balance expected to come from sponsorships, admissions, earned income and donations. Any profit from the events is to be set aside for capital improvements in the park. "It's now understood and known that this year is going to have a really magnificent event in Balboa Park," said Councilman Todd Gloria, who represents the park.
The UT bought North County Times a few months back. Its so weird to see them sold together. I see it working as North County is an extension of San Diego. I just don’t like that two billionaire development moguls, Doug Manchester and John Lynch buying out all the #SanDiego county print media and radio outlets. You’re allowing self-admitted biased opinion o give you your news.
On Monday, the Occupy San Diego movement will mark a milestone many locals may not have seen coming: Its first month of occupation. True to the word’s double meaning, camping out on downtown city property has become a job for dozens of demonstrators who protest corporate greed and economic inequality by day, and sleep (or not) outside the Civic Theatre at night. The group has grown smaller and scruffier, and its goals have yet to crystallize since the first march drew 1,500 people on Oct. 7. Subsequent city crackdowns on 100-plus tents led to 53 arrests.
SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Occupy San Diego protestors took to the streets Saturday in a "Big Banks Funeral March," in solidarity with National Bank Transfer Day, aimed at encouraging people to switch from large banks to credit unions. As the protest entered its 30th day, about 200 demonstrators were asked to wear black and carry cardboard coffins with bank's names on them, as they marched from the Civic Center to Petco Park, then to a Bank of America branch. The march was held as part of National Bank Transfer Day to "ensure that large banking institutions will always remember the fifth of November," according to a statement from the event's organizers. "If we shift our funds from the for-profit banking institutions in favor of not-for-profit credit unions before this date we will send a clear message that conscious consumers won't support companies with unethical business practices.

As the Occupy movement grows around the world, we’ve been fascinated by the clever urban solutions which are helping to organize and engage these hundreds of pop-up communities. From sustainable outdoor kitchens to a new visual language for governing , these concepts are proof that creatives are intrinsic to the community-building process. At GOOD Ideas for Cities, we’re watching this brand of “instant urbanism” closely as we work to enable great ideas for cities. And those ideas keep coming! At the very end of September, our GOOD Design San Francisco event was held to a packed house as part of AIA SF’s month-long Architecture and the City Festival . About 200 people swarmed the well-appointed space, thanks to our gracious hosts at swissnex San Francisco , as three design teams presented their ideas for improving San Francisco problems.
