From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:

A change in City of San Diego policy could finally be the good news we've been waiting for in terms of our affordable housing project.

A reduction in parking regulations may be granted for churches and other types of public assembly venues for organizations seeking to build affordable housing on its properties. This means we could no longer be required to have a specific number of parking spaces, and that we could possibly move forward with building affordable housing units in our mostly unused parking lot.

Building Project Update

We are in the Final Plan Check stages for the New Fellowship Hall building. The Building Committee along with our architect have addressed additional concerns from the city, and the final schematics were submitted on September 30th.

Once the plans are approved by the city, we can put the project out for bids, and will bring these bids to a vote of the congregation. The most up to date project plans can be viewed on the Building Project page on the church website:

Additionally, we have been working with a contractor for the “Kitchenette” and Laundry Room in Luther Hall as well as some new windows and doors for the Church Office.

Over the summer, we received a lot of media attention about our proposal to build affordable housing in our church parking lot. The story also got picked up by media outlets in the state. We received numerous emails and phone calls from several
individuals wanting to know how they can help the congregation with this project.

We will continue to provide updates on the building project in your Sunday worship bulletin and on the church website.
