Ocean Beach Residents Angry Over Construction Project

Community leaders and members met for a Town Hall meeting in Ocean Beach Wednesday to discuss a controversial construction project.

The new multi-unit housing project will be going up at the corner of Ebers and Greene streets. But many residents and the Chair of the Ocean Beach Planning Board claim the building violates city codes and size restrictions.

Many gathered at the Town Hall meeting in hopes of getting the City of San Diego to issue an order to stop construction.

"Maybe the people downtown, the mayor, the code compliance people, will take a look at themselves and realize that what they approved is not right in anyway shape or form," said neighbor Allison Rush.

The idea for a meeting grew out of the rally held on Saturday against the project—residents want to follow in in Point Loma's footsteps where residents had forced San Diego's mayor to order "stop work" on a four-story building. 

John Ambert, Chair of the OB Planning Board and Jon Linney, Chair of the Peninsula Community Planning Board organized the Town Hall.

Opponents of the project say their next step is to reach out to San Diego city officials.

The next regularly scheduled Ocean Beach Town Council meeting will be held October 26 at 7 p.m.
