Union Tribune: UCSD mini-dorm problem much smaller than SDSU

From David Garrick, San Diego Union Tribune. Says mini-dorms are not a problem in University City compared to the area around SDSU. Quotes UCPG’s Janay Kruger who mentions Neighborhood Watch; refers to CAPP, lack of transportation, and home prices as contributing factors. Excerpts:

Union Tribune UTUCSD isn’t as vulnerable to the chronic and worsening mini-dorm problem experienced near San Diego State, where neighborhood leaders have identified more than 800 such properties.

Several factors make rowdy rooming houses less common near [UCSD] campus.

They urge affected residents to contact property owners. For complaints about noise or parties, residents can also call the Police Department’s non-emergency number, (619) 531-2000. Such calls identify the houses for the potential $1,000 fines under the city’s Community Assisted Party Program.
