Allen Hazard & Janet O'Dea
People in the Trenches

Allen Hazard and Janet O'DeaThis husband and wife team recognized the beginnings of some dangerous trends in their neighborhood, trends toward the destruction of historic homes, the replacement of those homes with McMansions, and the increase in the number of insensitive modifications. They recognized that these types of activities lead to a loss of character and they did something about it - they galvanized their community to form a historic district. The duo learned how to form a district, went door to door to raise awareness, organized community meetings, raised funds, and learned how to conduct historic research. As a result, 75 homes have been submitted for designation as part of the Mission Hills Historic District. The City of San Diego has yet to ratify the district.
