Shortchanges City on Parks

  • The proposed river park is likely to be an empty promise that will never happen.
  • The fine print of the initiative shows that FS does not have to even build the park.
  • FS plans to shift the burden of park construction to the City and taxpayers rather than building it themselves.
  • FS also plans to shift the burden of securing state and federal permits to the City of San Diego.
  • According to their plans, much of the river park would likely be covered in weedy retention basins for much of the year.
