The City of San Diego on Friday released a draft of updates to the Mission Valley Community Plan after a three-year development period.
The plan addresses land use changes, infrastructure updates, public parks and recreational opportunities and public mobility.
The development of the 170-page document included public comment from 30 community meetings and an online poll that was answered by more than 630 participants, according to the city.“This community plan update presents a great opportunity to re-imagine the future of Mission Valley, increase housing affordability and improve quality of life,” said city Planning Director Mike Hansen.
“The community planning group and residents provided us with a lot of information that helped create this updated plan that will allow Mission Valley to become a great, well-balanced neighborhood.”
If approved, the new plan will replace the 33-year-old Mission Valley Community Plan that the San Diego City Council approved in 1984 and adopted in 1985. It is designed as a guide for the future of Mission Valley and will be monitored and amended as needed, according to the city.
The deadline for written public comment is Nov. 13, 2018.
Opportunities for public comment will be given when the new plan is reviewed by the city Planning Commission and the city council’s Smart Growth and Land Use Committee as well as when it goes to the full council for approval.
