SAN DIEGO, CA-All seven members of the City of San Diego Planning Commission have endorsed the city’s Strategic Framework Element, a proposed amendment to the city’s 1979 General Plan. Their support bodes well for the citizen-developed City of Villages strategy, a section of the proposed amendment that embraces “smart growth” concepts centering on pedestrian-oriented development along transit corridors in the city’s urban areas.

The city council will now consider adoption of the amendment at a public hearing scheduled for September 23.
