Michael D. Pawlenty Letters to the Editor


Eliminate traffic from the Plaza de Panama


I am in favor of the plan to elimi-


nate vehicular traffic from the Plaza de Panama in Balboa Park and I can›t understand why there is op- position from preservationists. I am neither an architect nor an en- gineer, but as an artist I have Pho-


toshopped an image of the Cabrillo Bridge with an arched addition that would re-route traffic around to the Alcazar Garden parking lot. This bridge would add to, and conform to, the collection of buildings on the mesa and add to Irving Gill›s con- cept of simplicity of design. Gill›s original ideas for some of the build- ings at the 1915 exposition were never followed; instead the Spanish Colonial revival structures that we


see there today were construct- ed. I can›t see why, in the present day, we can›t add to what is there. Livable, vibrant cities (and parks) are constantly evolving and chang- ing. Why can›t San Diego add to its collection in the park instead of maintaining the status quo?
