It’s only temporary.
The crowd was largely relieved Wednesday night as Mayor Bob Filner shared his non-permanent plan to clear cars from Balboa Park’s central mesa.
The mayor wants to strip the signs and parking lines from the Plaza de Panama and return it to pedestrians. That will require relocating handicap parking spots to the lot behind the Alcazar Garden and valet behind The Prado restaurant. Filner also proposes closing the Cabrillo Bridge on weekends and holidays, though he’d allow two-way traffic on weekdays.
