University Community Plan Update
The University Community Plan serves as the long-range vision for land use, mobility, urban design, public facilities and services, natural resources, historic and cultural resources, and economic development. This update plans for more opportunities for homes, jobs and mixed-use development connected to the University of California San Diego, retail and employment centers, hospitals, health care facilities, residential areas, public spaces, and bus rapid and light rail stations.
This initiative focuses on the following priority areas of the Strategic Plan:
Create Homes for All of Us
Focuses opportunities for housing within mixed-use and residential areas.
Protect & Enrich Every Neighborhood
Identifies opportunities for public spaces and pocket parks, trails and joint-use facilities.
Provides guidance for the future identification and preservation of historical resources and districts that embody architectural and cultural history.
Advance Mobility & Infrastructure
Identifies opportunities for mobility infrastructure that improve walking, rolling, biking and transit connections.
Promotes opportunities for urban greening and street trees to address stormwater runoff and climate change.
Protects canyons, open space and sensitive habitat.
Foster Regional Prosperity
Promotes University of California San Diego, health care facilities and employment uses as economic drivers connected to regional transit.
The process to develop the University Community Plan Update will be collaborative and include a number of opportunities for public input. The City will form and meet on a regular basis with the University Community Planning Group’s Community Plan Update Subcommittee, public workshops will be conducted, and opportunities to share your input online will be available at key milestones in the planning process. The result of this process will be a new draft Community Plan for University. An Environmental Impact Report will also be prepared to assess the potential environmental impacts of implementing the plan, along with necessary mitigation measures.
