Polo fields lease: Where is the City of San Diego?

Anyone who drove along Via De La Valle from I-5 to Morgan Run in early January 2013 was confronted by warning signs that warned of congestion along that road during the weekend of Jan. 5-6. This warning was well founded since the traffic and haphazard parking created a scene beyond imagination — so much for the lease between the City of San Diego and the Polo Club that prohibits events that attract large numbers of automobiles.

A lease, by the way, that expired in March 2012 and the city has promised will not be renewed without competitive bidding and complete transparency.

During the weekend noted above, cars were parked everywhere — on Via De La Valle, on the polo fields and every space within a mile of the polo fields that accommodate a car. Our neighborhood was overwhelmed by the traffic and parking and our privacy was disdained by the attendees to the event.

This must not be allowed to take place in the future. The City of San Diego must stand up for the rights of the taxpaying citizens. Obviously the thousands of people that invaded our neighborhood and disturbed our peace are by and large from somewhere else. They should practice their mayhem in their own neighborhoods.

So we say to the City of San Diego, where are you?  What’s happening with the lease? Where is your transparency? Where is your public bidding? And when will you start to stand up for those of us who live around the polo fields and pay our taxes to the city.

We have received no answers to our phone calls and e-mails and it’s time for our elected representatives  to represent us.

Mr. and Mrs Rudy L. Biller
