Community Plan Updates

Old Town San Diego and Midway/Pacific Highway Corridor Community Plan Updates

Photo collage of Old Town/Midway


The City of San Diego is in the process of comprehensively updating the Old Town San Diego and Midway/Pacific Highway Corridor community plans. The purpose of a community plan is to provide land use designations and policies that will help guide future development in the community. The current community plans for Old Town San Diego and Midway/Pacific Highway Corridor were adopted in 1987 and 1991, respectively. Updating these community plans will ensure that current conditions are reflected and that they guide future development in a way that meets the goals of the city and community. While both community plans are being updated together, they will remain separate community plans.

On this website you will find information about how you can get involved and provide input in the planning process, as well as background information and technical documents.

Old Town San Diego Community Plan Update Discussion Draft September 2015

A discussion draft of the Old Town San Diego Community Plan Update is now available for public review, discussion and input. The discussion draft is a work-in-progress and serves as a first draft to allow the Old Town Community, the public, and the City's Planning Commission to provide comment on the development of the draft plan update This discussion draft is based on community input to provide clear goals, policy direction and photo illustrations to ensure that future development is consistent with the character and architectural styles of Old Town. The draft community plan incorporates the architectural guidelines from the existing Community Plan and Architectural and Site Design Standards & Criteria.

The Planning Department will meet with the Old Town San Diego Community Planning Group to fine-tune the draft in October 2015. We will then release a Public Review Draft for additional review and input, with an updated Old Town Planned District Ordinance.
