The public is encouraged to attend one of three community meetings scheduled in the coming weeks to provide input on the creation of San Diego’s LGBT Cultural and Performing Arts Center in the current location of Diversionary Theatre and Lambda Archives at 4545 Park Blvd. The meetings are hosted by the building’s current tenants and the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation (SDHDF), which purchased the building earlier this year.

The three organizations envision transforming 4545 Park. Blvd. into the San Diego LGBT Cultural and Performing Arts Center (CPAC). The CPAC will build community by offering a variety of programs delivering quality entertainment, educational opportunities and memorable moments that engage and inspire audiences, honor LGBT culture, respect diversity, nurture collaboration and drive economic vitality.

Meetings are scheduled for the following dates and times at Diversionary Theatre:
* Wednesday, May 27 at 11 a.m.
* Tuesday, June 2 at 7 p.m.
* Sunday, June 7 at 4 p.m.

San Diego Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer, City Council President Sherri Lightner and City Council Member Lorie Zapf announced a series of actions the city will take to reduce water usage and promote conservation. These actions came in response to CA Governor Jerry Brown’s executive order mandating water conversation to combat the current drought.

Actions announced by local officials include:
* Directing the city’s Public Utilities Department to strengthen enforcement of water waste regulations.
* Reviewing options to reduce outdoor irrigation at parks, one of city government’s largest areas of water consumption.
* Halting the use of potable water to irrigate turf-landscaped medians throughout the city.
* Restarting the Turf: Replacement Rebate Program to encourage residents to replace their water inefficient turf with native and/or drought tolerant landscaping.
