Scenic San Diego’s surveillance questions remain unanswered by EDD Christina Bibler, despite her email promise to address them
At the March 8th Economic Development and Intergovernmental Relations committee meeting, City of San Diego Economic Development Director Christina Bibler (left) promised Council Pro Tem Montgomery Steppe that her questions about surveillance ordinance exemptions in relation to the proposed digital kiosks would be answered before the kiosks came to the full council. To our knowledge, no answers have been provided. Furthermore, Director Bibler promised to answer our questions about the kiosks, but to this date, she has not done so. Instead we have received the following by email, with the last response on April 13th, 2023 (over 45 days ago).

Good afternoon Ms. Wilson,
I am in receipt of this email. Some of these specific questions will take coordination to provide a response but I am happy to take the lead and will be in touch. I can assure you a response to most, if not all of these questions prior to the Planning Commission hearing.

Dear Ms. Bibler,
Per Ms. Brenha's direction I am sending you questions Scenic San Diego has regarding the digital ad kiosk proposal. I am hopeful they can be answered by early next week, so we have the information before the April 20 Planning Commission meeting. If you can estimate when you expect to be able to reply, that will be very helpful. And if you can acknowledge you received my email, I would greatly appreciate it. Please feel free to provide answers in multiple emails as you get them. Please let me know if I can clarify any question.
