The previously scheduled August 30 workshop for the revised conceptual design of the Lane Field North Hotel development project has been canceled. The meeting has been rescheduled to Tuesday, September 11, 2012 to allow for a larger audience and to ensure maximum public input.
The workshop will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m, that evening, at the Port of San Diego Administration Building Training Room, located at 3165 Pacific Highway, San Diego. The agenda will include a presentation on the project from 5:30 to 6 p.m., break-out sessions for discussion from 6 to 6:45 p.m. and closing comments from 6:45 to 7 p.m.
The project is located on the northern portion of the former Lane Field site at Pacific Highway and West Broadway, where the Pacific Coast Padres ballpark was once located. The purpose of the workshop is to inform the public and to solicit public feedback on the design of the hotel project. The proposed developer, LPP Lane Field, LLC, will provide an overview of the two previous public workshops and the revised conceptual design for the hotel and the workshop will be part of an ongoing effort to gather public input towards its design.
The Port of San Diego regrets any inconvenience this rescheduling may have caused.
