From the OB Historical Society’s website:
A Historical Perspective of OB’s Planning “Crisis” in the 1970s and the Village’s Response
Frank Gormlie, Editor of the OB Rag, will give a program on the history of the early days of Ocean Beach’s Planning Board and the importance of O.B. residents taking part in their community groups. Frank was a member of the O.B. Planning Board, and for one year was the chair, which was also one of the first San Diego Community Planning Boards.
Frank will talk about the importance of a good community plan that reflects what the residents want, and how they want to shape their future. Frank will stress the participation of residents in running for the board, going to meetings and voting in the election.
We encourage current, former and future planning board members to attend. We hope OBHS members will express their hopes and concerns involving O.B.’s future plans. Join us Thurs., Feb. 21, 2013 at 7PM at P.L. United Methodist Church 1984 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., O. B.

I have no idea if OBecians like the building at 5151 Long Branch Ave, but, I’m very sorry, it’s mind-f***ingly ugly at street level. What????
