LETS PLAN THE FUTURE OF THE COLLEGE AREA
College Area envisions a college town with vibrant mixed-use corridors and villages, that are connected to neighborhoods and the University, and that enhance the community.
The City of San Diego has begun a collaborative effort to update the College Area Community Plan, which was last updated in 1989. Community plans serve as the “blue print” for the community’s future growth and development – they determine policies and proposals on a wide array of topics, including housing, mobility, open space & parks, public facilities, conservation & sustainability, urban design and historic preservation. The updated community plan will help to reinforce the community’s role as a campus town, revitalize key activity centers, provide housing options and recreational opportunities, and strengthen connections between SDSU and the community. During the update process, Planning Department staff will work with the College Area community and the public to identify and consider important questions, issues, and opportunities including:
How will College Area grow over the next 20-30 years?
What services, infrastructure or facilities are needed to meet this growth?
How can the community best plan for new housing opportunities, including housing for San Diego State University students?
How can College Area nurture the economic relationship with San Diego State University and strengthen the community’s connection to the university?
How can the community support neighborhood businesses, including those along the community’s celebrated El Cajon Boulevard business corridor?
How can the community build upon College Area’s robust transit network, including the trolley and the El Cajon Boulevard Bus Rapid Transit, to support additional housing near transit?
Where can College Area create public and recreation spaces that provide opportunities to get outside, connect and play?
THE CPU COMMITTEE
The College Area Community Plan Update Committee (CPU Committee) is an advisory committee of the College Area Community Planning Board, which is the City's recognized citizens' group for the College Area. The CPU Committee was created specifically for the Community Plan Update in order to provide feedback to the City throughout the process. The CPU Committee holds regular meetings at the offices of the College Area Business District (4704 College Avenue, San Diego, CA 92115) on the fourth Wednesday of the month from 5:30pm - 7:00pm.
