Raise The Balloon.com is a public participation platform, formed in 2014 to boost widespread community awareness of Mayor Faulconer's campaign to update our community plans under his Climate Action Plan (CAP).
We believe that more San Diegans need to weigh in on the increases of density and housing policy guidelines forced upon us by state mandates through Regional Housing Needs Allocations and a current Mayor, City Council and state legislature succumbing to developer backed attempts to seize local control of housing decisions and attempts to limit community input through exisitng Community Planning Groups.
There are both seen and unseen consequences to these policies that are not being considered or understood by residents of San Diego. 
The state bills that will have immediate impact (SB 50, SB 330 & SB 592) have moved through the state legislative process so fast that our communities are unaware of them.
Without the efforts of grass-roots action, like RTB, the Building Industry Association, California Association of Realtors, and Wall Street Financiers (the backers and lobbyists who wrote the text of the bills) will dominate the narrative of state control over local housing decisions.

Morena Plan Approved- Residents Prepare to Sue

The Morena Corridor and the Balboa Specific Plans were approved on August 1, 2019, by the San Diego City Council.

The plans will add 7,016 new units between Tecolote Rd and Friars Rd, and 4,729 units between Balboa Ave & Garnet.  An additional 3,000 units are proposed and expected to be approved between Clairemont Dr & Tecolote Rd unless residents can stop the approval in the Clairemont Community Plan Update Process.
