Luther Hall and other building project update

main image

Since the dedication of the remodeled Room Two and new laundry room, more work has been performed on Luther Hall over the past month.

A much-needed new furnace has been installed in the building at a significantly less cost thanks to the work of our Building Committee members. The former storage closet between Rooms Two and Three is in the process of being converted into a pantry space.

Special thanks to members of the Men’s Group for volunteering to paint the room. This will allow us to store food items and other supplies needed for various ministries. The men also painted the
Pastor’s Sacristy and Vestry, which had not been painted in nearly two decades.

A new furnace is also being installed in the Church Office. Some window and door upgrades are also being assessed. The Building Committee is hard at work assessing the proposals from contractors for the Fellowship Hall Project.

More updates to come.

City Council vote paves way for affordable housing project

After months of dealing with San Diego city regulations over parking, a recent vote may soon pave the way for our congregation’s affordable housing project.

The San Diego City Council unanimously approved a measure changing the city’s Land Development Code to reduce the parking requirements for churches and other non-profits who are considering building affordable housing on their properties.

This means the congregation is now well within the requirement for parking spaces, and the construction of affordable housing units would not affect this requirement.

We are, however, still a long way out from any major decision, and the congregation will have a say in how we move forward.

In the meantime, check out the report from KUSI News.

San Diego Entertainer Magazine and KPBS also reported on the change in Land Development Code by the City Council.
