Barrio Logan is a neighborhood in south central San DiegoCalifornia. It is bordered by the neighborhoods of East Village and Logan Heights to the north, Shelltown and Southcrest to the east, San Diego Bay to the southwest, and National City to the southeast. Interstate 5 forms the northeastern boundary. The Barrio
Logan Community Plan Area comprises approximately 1,000 acres, of which
slightly more than half is under the jurisdiction of the 
Port of San Diego or the United States Navy rather than the city of San Diego. The
community is subject to the California Coastal Act. Though located near the
City’s Central core, it has long been considered part of 
Southeast San Diego by many locals, being directly Southeast of Downtown,
and with previous historical records labeling it as part of “Western
Southeast San Diego.

When the Spanish first entered the
region, they found a Kumeyaay rancheria at the mouth of Chollas Creek.

In 1871, Congressman John A. Logan wrote legislation to provide federal land
grants and subsidies for a transcontinental railroad ending in San Diego. A
street laid in 1881 was named Logan Heights after him, and the name came to be
applied to the general area. Plans for a railroad never successfully
materialized, and the area was predominantly residential by the turn of the
century, becoming one of San Diego’s oldest communities. Its transformation
began in 1910 with the influx of refugees from the Mexican Revolution, who
soon became the majority ethnic group. For this reason, the southern part of
the original Logan Heights neighborhood came to be called Barrio Logan. (Barrio is a Spanish word for
“neighborhood”.)

The area was originally residential
with access to the beach at San Diego Bay. During World War II this beach access was lost
due to the expansion of Naval Station San Diego and
other military facilities on the waterfront. The neighborhood continued to
degrade during the 1950s and 1960s due to rezoning that permitted industrial
uses, the construction of Interstate 5 through the heart of the community in 1963,
and the construction of the San Diego-Coronado Bridge in
1969, which covered much of the community with a concrete “roof”
supported by gray concrete pillars.[9] The city council promised to build a community
park under the bridge approaches, and a site was approved in June 1969. When
construction began in April 1970 at the designated site, but the community
learned that the work was intended to create a state building instead of a
park, there was a nonviolent community uprising. Students and others occupied
the site and forced a halt to the construction. The occupation of the site
lasted twelve days. Residents planted landscaping, and a local artist, Salvador Torres, proclaimed his vision of covering the freeway
support pillars with murals. After intense negotiation between the city and the
state (which owned the land in question), the site was reclaimed for park use,
and Chicano Park was built and dedicated. It was expanded several times and in
1990 it was extended all the way to the bay, restoring beach access to the
community.

The community contains many industrial
areas, primarily shipbuilding and maritime uses, as well as many residences. In
2013 the neighborhood planning group drew up, and the City Council approved, a
revised community plan which would have created a “buffer zone” of a
commercial area separating residential uses from industrial uses. However, the
ship-building industry, which objected to the buffer zone, organized and led a
petition drive to overturn the plan via citywide vote. In June 2014 the voters
rejected the community plan. A revised plan is in the draft stage as of
2015.

Barrio Logan, in southeast San Diego, is
referred to as el ombligo or navel, the center of the world.

Barrio Logan is the home of Chicano Park, a Chicano-themed public park created in large part by the local
residents. It is located at the site of a 1970s demonstration, land takeover,
and cultural renaissance for the Mexican-American community. It features more
than 60 colorful murals painted on the concrete support piers for the San Diego-Coronado Bridge and Interstate 5. It was designated an official historic site by
the San Diego Historical Site Board in 1980 and listed on the National Register
of Historic Places in 2013.

Every home — big, small, apartment or vacation
home — gets dirty. And while there’s not just one way to clean your living
space, there is a smarter way to get the job done. Take this guided tour of
your home — from the kitchen and bathroom to the bedroom and living areas — to
learn the basic rules of cleaning as well as some tips and short cuts that will
help you clean thoroughly and efficiently, starting now.
 

If your
toilet flushes slowly, the rinse holes under the rim may be clogged with
mineral deposits. (Get a 
refresher on the parts of a toilet.) Use a hand mirror to see the holes under the
rim of the toilet. Bend a coat hanger flat and probe the tip into the holes to
poke out any deposits. You can clean out those clogged holes without ever
getting your hands dirty.

In the kitchen, wiping surfaces, keeping tabs
on the fridge and washing dishes every day will prevent big

messes.

How to remove soap scum: Water spots and soap scum that build up
on glass shower doors can drive you crazy, but try this strange tip: Wet a
dryer sheet and scrub the glass in a circular motion. A milky white film will
form, which can be wiped away using water and a squeegee, paper towels or a
microfiber cloth. The dryer sheet doesn’t need to be new; you can press a dryer
sheet that’s been used for laundry into double duty for this task.

Hair is a particular
issue in bathrooms. In general, hair pickup should be a dry proposition. Start
by vacuuming, sweeping or dry mopping; if you introduce, say, a wet mop to a
hairy floor, you’ll end up with wet strands stuck to the floor. In the sink and
around the toilet bowl, use paper towels or rags to pick up hairs before you
introduce liquid cleansers.

How to keep bathroom floors
clean
: Store a small handheld vacuum in the bathroom to
make staying on top of loose hairs a cinch.

A feather duster may seem like a relic of the
past, but in a bedroom — where we often use dresser tops and bedside tables to
store books, eyeglasses, remote controls, etc. — that duster will make quick
work of eliminating dust from knickknack-laden surfaces. The nature of gravity
being what it is, dust first, vacuum second.

How to Clean a Burned Pot: To
clean a badly scorched pot without scrubbing, cover the burned area with a
liberal amount of baking soda and pour in enough boiling water to fill the pot
a third to halfway up. When the water is cool enough to touch, head in with
your sponge and use the baking soda solution to scrub away the scorch. Dump the
solution and wash the pot with hot, soapy water.

The Dishwasher Debate: While
there isn’t an absolutely correct way to load a dishwasher (and what would
couples bicker over if such a directive were carved in stone?), there is one
universal rule: It is much easier to load from back to front.

The sink, especially
the faucet, can be wiped free of bacteria and food particles with an
all-purpose cleaner. And we all should probably clean the faucet more often,
considering it’s something we touch with raw-chicken-covered hands.

More than half of household dust enters your home
through windows, doors, vents and on the soles of your shoes
. Think about where you walk all day long (restrooms, city
streets, construction sites, etc.) and all the bacteria and debris your shoes
collect. Do you really want to track that inside? An EPA study of homes where a
doormat was added at the entrance and shoes were banned indoors showed a 60
percent reduction of lead dust and other contaminants in the home, as well as a
significant reduction of allergens and bacteria. Your first line of defense
for how to remove dust from air should be a 
coarse-fiber heavy-duty doormat placed outside exterior doors. Inside, have everyone
remove shoes at the door. Keep a bench, a shoe rack and a basket of cheap
slippers available so no one has to walk around in their stocking feet on
chilly floors

Sponges should be cleaned frequently, too, either by running them
through the dishwasher or microwave. If you use a microwave, first make sure
the sponge does not contain any metal, then get the sponge very wet and nuke it
for two minutes; be careful when you remove it, as it will be quite hot.

Has your sponge holder developed
mold or bacterial buildup? Use a toothbrush dipped in bleach or white vinegar —
but never both, as the combination creates a dangerous chemical reaction — to
scrub away mold. Follow by washing the sponge caddy with hot, soapy water or
run it through the dishwasher. These are just a few helpful tips to getting a cleaner house.  House cleaning in Barrio Logan is a real treat. We love house cleaning in Barrio Logan. The homes are centered around street art that give the neighborhood some flair.
