Update sought on future of polo fields

Editor’s Note: The following letter was sent to the City of San Diego and to this newspaper for publication.

We have received and read with interest a magazine called “San Diego Polo” which we have never seen before. It served to teach us the history of polo in San Diego.

As [residents of the community] that overlooks the polo fields we are very concerned about the future of the fields and the sport of polo. We are very supportive of the Polo Club and its future. However, we do not agree that other sporting events should be allowed on these fields. Anyone who reads the text of the deed agreement between the City of San Diego and Watts Industries will see that events other than equestrian-related are not acceptable. The wisdom of this provision is apparent when the congestion, noise, pollution and overcrowding consistent with other events are experienced. They reduce the quality of life in our community.

We say “yes” to polo and “no” to all other events on these fields and hope that the openness promised by the city becomes fact.

The Polo Club lease expired in March and, despite promises by the City of San Diego, no one knows the status of the lease.

Please respond and let us know what’s going on.

Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph L. Biller
