Planners to hear TargetExpress update

Posted: June 19th, 2015 | Communities, Featured, News, South Park | No Comments

Target Corp. officials will give a presentation about the planned South Park TargetExpress on Monday, June 22 at the Greater Golden Hill Planning Committee meeting.

The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. in Balboa Park at Casa Del Prado (near the Botanical Building) in the Majorca Room 101.

The TargetExpress would go into the Gala Food site on the corner of Grape and Fern streets, but faces stiff opposition from many residents. Target officials have projected the express store would open in October.

Care About South Park, a community group that opposes the TargetExpress project, is asking its supporters to attend the meeting. The group will meet beforehand at 6:15 p.m. by the fountain outside the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, before walking en masse to the meeting.

“This will be a unique opportunity to ask questions, document opposition, and express concerns about how this corporate retail project will impact our neighborhood,” the group said in an email sent to San Diego Uptown News.

Care About South Park is selling “No to Target” T-shirts for $6 at Mythology Eco-Boutique at 2365 30th St.

The agenda and plans provided by Target will be posted by the city’s Planning Commission at
