Two weeks ago, we began a new feature where we’d post the San Diego City Council agenda prior to the meeting, highlight an issue or two and solicit your feedback. We continue this morning — if you forgive the lateness following a very busy week — with the agendas for Monday and Tuesday, including the Redevelopment Agency agendas.

We tried calling this feature, On the Agenda Public Comment, a clever spin on the non-agenda public comment portion of the council meetings that tend to liven up Tuesday morning sessions. But given that our weekday morning roundup of San Diego political coverage is called The Agenda, we’ve decided we have one “agenda” too many. Instead, we’re going to call this one, Public Comment. Simple and direct.

On to Public Comment!


City Council agenda, Sept. 14, 2009; City Council agenda, Sept. 15, 2009.

Redevelopment Agency agenda, Sept. 14, 2009; Redevelopment Agency agenda, Sept. 15, 2009.

Reminder: Tonight’s City Council meeting will begin at 6 p.m.

Issues of Interest:

We’ve received some e-mails on a plan for a self-storage company to build a 90,000 square foot facility in Tierrasanta. This is Item-338 for those scoring at home. The project has a 23-year history starting with a quiet title dispute in 1986. The Tierrasanta Community Council, which recommended denial of the project, has its own dedicated spot on its website to protest it. The facility the, council says, “will change the character of Tierrasanta forever!!” My colleague Adrian Florido is looking into this issue so email him at if you have more information.

Here’s a link to the executive summary on the project.

What else is good to follow at the meeting? Questions? Comments? Derogatory remarks? E-mail or tweet me.

You can also comment in my blog, The Hall, if you’re not there already.
