SAN DIEGO, CA-In a vote of six to three, the San Diego City Council has approved a comprehensive plan that will update the city’s 1979 General Plan.

The amendment, which consists of a Strategic Framework Element and accompanying Five-Year Action Plan, focuses on many “smart growth” issues. A major element of the plan is the citizen-developed City of Villages strategy, which embraces pedestrian-oriented development along transit corridors in the city’s urban areas.

Now that the amendment has been approved, city officials will be soliciting and accepting applications from communities who want to be considered for a pilot village demonstration project. “Much work lies ahead as we prepare to select pilot village demonstration projects, determine how to address our existing facilities shortfall and ultimately implement the program through community plan updates,” says Planning Department Director Gail Goldberg. She adds that the adoption of the Strategic Framework Element and Action Plan is a “milestone” for San Diego. The process that led to the amendment began in 1999 and has involved thousands of San Diego residents in more than 200 public forums, workshops and local planning group meetings.
