Project Updates: October 17, 2012

Construction Schedule Updated
While construction on the Plaza de Panama Project was scheduled to begin in Fall 2012, the Plaza de Panama Committee has postponed to start of construction until Mid-February 2013 to allow for the resolution of litigation filed by project opponents.  A final hearing has been scheduled for February 1, 2013.  Despite the shorter construction period, the project is still scheduled to be completed in early October 2014, in time for the 2015 Centennial Celebration in Balboa Park. The four construction phases, estimated time frames and areas impacted are described in our construction fact sheet (pdf). We will continue to send out regular construction updates in our enewsletter.

Plaza de Panama Project Participates in Politifest 2012
On Saturday, September 29, the project team participated in Voice of San Diego’s Politifest 2012 at Liberty Station. The event consisted of a fun-filled day of political activism where attendees visited a variety of community booths from innovative local nonprofits, one of which was for the Plaza de Panama project. The project team had a wonderful time sharing new project information and construction updates with hundreds of event attendees. This year’s Politifest also included an exciting mayoral debate, Idea Tournament, kid zone, live music, and great eats!
