The City of San Diego is comprised of 52 “Plan Areas” where all existing and future land use is determined. Clairemont and Linda Vista each have their own separate plan areas. RTB (Raise the Balloon.org) is an informal group of residents from both Plan Areas that grew out of the release of the Morena Blvd Station Area Planning Study in 2014.
RTB is not so much “issue” driven as it is “participation” driven. Our goal is to get as many of our residents– in both plan areas– aware of and involved with the process of updating our Community Plans. Although Linda Vista is currently not engaged in an official Plan Update, a good third of its land jurisdiction lies within the boundary of the Morena Specific Plan (see below), which will have a major impact to both Linda Vista and Clairemont plan areas’ residents.

Morena Specific Plan Submitted for EIR
The City has presented their idea for the Morena Specific Plan to both Linda Vista and Clairemont portions of the Plan.
1. A safe ped/bike path to Mission Bay?
2. A Boardwalk that would extend from Clairemont Dr. to Tecolote Rd. and NOT just Ashton to Napier?
3. Setbacks for any building along Morena Blvd?
4. A commitment to keeping the 30 Foot Height Limit?
We are asking everyone to email Michael Prinz (Senior Planner) at email@example.com with comments at any time. An official Public Review Period will begin once the draft plan is out of environmental review. We will notify everyone by email when its completed do make sure you are on our email list.
