Clash of Residential and Industry in Barrio Logan

Barrio Logan is a dockside neighborhood in San Diego, where for generations the maritime industry and homes have coexisted. A new controversial rezoning plan aims to separate the uses.

Adrian Florido writes that the 4,000 residents and the ship deck cleaners, welders and warehouses never really got along, but sifting the uses apart is even more controversial:

"the plan could also cut the amount of industrial land in the neighborhood by as much as 50 percent. That has met fierce resistance from industrial land and business owners who say it will limit their ability to expand, provide jobs and support maritime operations.

That disagreement has turned a few-block stretch of waterfront land in Barrio Logan into the site of an acrimonious political battle. Even the mayor has intervened."
