7:00PM: SPECIAL TOPIC – UPTOWN COMMUNITY PLAN UPDATE
Our June 14th meeting will be themed around an important topic: the upcoming update to our community plan. The City of San Diego is updating the 1988 Uptown Community Plan concurrently with updates to the community plans for Golden Hill and North P ark.
The City’s community plans are long range planning documents established as essential components of the General Plan. The community plan update process will develop the community-specific detail, relevant policies, and implementation strategies necessary to fulfill General Plan objectives. The General Plan sets out a long-range vision and policy framework to guide future development, provide public services, and maintain the qualities that define San Diego over the next 20+ years.
Presenters will give an overview of the plan, including the following topics:
* Background on our community plan
* History of the Hillcrest Town Council’s involvement
* Height/density/neighborhood character
* Location of additional density
* Parks and plazas
* Historic preservation
* Affordable housing
Come prepared to ask questions to panelists familiar with the Uptown Plan and how updates will affect the Hillcrest community. Community members will be encouraged to give input and ask questions.
