San Diego's downtown civic core is back to it's pre-pandemic activity, at least that's according to a new study and sales tax revenue levels in the area.
But our hosts make the case that declaring that downtown has totally recuperated is, well, complicated. They give downtown their own grades in this episode.
Plus: We have updates on smart streetlights and why activists aren't happy. A billionaire is back in San Diego philanthropy circles but not everyone is excited about that. And the mayor has done a reorg to address homelessness better.
