From an initial investment of $30,000 and 89 customers in 1881, San Diego Gas & Electric has grown to become the nation's 22nd-largest utility, with total assets of about $3.6 billion and more than 1 million customers. The utility was called the San Diego Gas Co. when it was formed on April 18, 1881, by five businessmen to provide gas lighting to what was then called San Diego's New Town area, situated on what is now Horton Plaza.

Jess Haro's eloquent plea for district elections as a remedy for Latino disenfranchisement ("San Diego Minority Representation Hinges on End to At-Large Voting," Jan. 10) is not just another minority voice crying in the wilderness of San Diego politics. A change to district elections for San Diego City Council has never been more relevant or full of promise for improved standards of civic life--for everyone in this city, regardless of ethnic or economic pigeon hole. Times readers undoubtedly know there is widespread popular discontent with the quality of San Diego City Council.

The traffic between Los Angeles and San Diego was mostly one-way between 1975 and 1980, according to population growth statistics. The figures show that that twice as many people from Los Angeles County moved to San Diego County than vice versa. The statistics compiled by the San Diego Assn. of Governments from 1980 census figures show that 64,605 people moved to San Diego County from Los Angeles County while only 29,853 left San Diego County for Los Angeles County.

Given some of the San Diego City Council's recent debates, recommending an expansion of that governing body seems akin to inviting more tongues to the tower of Babel. But we'll take the long view here. Adding two seats to the current eight-member council should increase the electoral clout of minorities and improve representation for San Diegans in general. Proposition B, placed on the June 5 ballot as the result of an out-of-court legal settlement, would accomplish this reform.

California's population increased by 320,000 residents, or 1%, to 32.38 million people during 1996, state demographers said Monday in their annual population estimate. Los Angeles County had the greatest numerical growth, up 44,200 residents to an estimated 9.4 million, but its rate of growth of 0.47% was half the statewide average. California's second- and third-most populous counties, San Diego and Orange, grew by 0.96% and 1.34%, respectively.

Confirming San Diego's bittersweet status as one of America's fastest-growing major cities, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Friday that the city's population rose during the 1980s by more than a quarter to 1.1 million, making it the nation's sixth biggest city. Over the past decade, San Diego's population grew by 27%, rising from 875,538 in 1980 to 1,110,549 last year, according to the census data.

Within just a few years, San Diego County communities have grabbed a leading role in Southern California's move to curbside recycling, with all but one of its cities either offering or phasing in programs that allow residents to put recyclables on the curb to be collected with the trash. Although curbside collection is common in several Northern California counties, much of the Southland has been slower to provide for pickup.

By the end of 1991, every council district in the city of San Diego will have elected its own representative. Finally, local legislators will be chosen in the same manner as state and federal lawmakers. The transition to district elections from the previous system, in which council members ultimately were elected citywide, has been bumpy. Lost along the way, according to proponents of the at-large system, was concern for citywide issues.

Balboa Park, under its recently approved Master Plan, will not be able to accept many more cultural immigrants. There will be room for a few new institutions as buildings are renovated and the gymnasium complex is moved out of the park. But most will have to find homes elsewhere--so that the park can remain a park. That's why competition has been so intense for the House of Charm, a dilapidated building on the Prado that the city will be reconstructing in a few years.
