Dear Plaza de Panama Committee:
The Metro San Diego Community Development Corporation Board/ Charter Committee voted 17-1 to reaffirm its support for the Plaza de Panama Project, as originally proposed by Dr. Irwin Jacob; and to request that, as the litigation regarding the project has been resolved, the Plaza de Panama Committee move forward with building the project as originally approved by the San Diego City Council on July 9, 2012.
