Barrio Logan zoning plan measures go down

Plans to zone Barrio Logan's land use that didn't sit well with the shipbuilding industry failed to win voter approval Tuesday night, as both Propositions B and C in the city of San Diego were shot down by voters.

If passed, Propositions B and C would have allowed a resolution by the City Council on Barrio Logan's future land use to go forward and allowed related ordinances set by the council to go into effect. The resolution and ordinances would have together established a community plan with a commercial buffer zone separating industry from residential zones, in an attempt to fix the mishmash of property uses seen in Barrio Logan today.

Opponents of the plans said that the propositions would hurt the shipbuilding industry and threaten jobs. The propositions' supporters said they would start creating long-overdue protections for residents living around the shipyards.

The shipbuilding and maritime industries, as well as other business groups, successfully launched the petition drive that placed the City Council's actions in the hands of the voters.

Prop. B was opposed by roughly 58.5 percent of city voters, while Prop. C was opposed by 60.5 percent.
