The community of Serra Mesa developed in the years after World War II with military multi-family housing and later single family homes, apartments and support retail. Most of the community and its 8,361 dwelling units had been built by 1970. The community also includes a health-institutional complex anchored by Sharp and Children's Hospitals, and is further characterized by north-south oriented canyons that drain into Mission Valley to the south.
The City is currently processing amendments to the Land Development Code and minor amendments to affected community plans, as necessary, to implement the adopted ALUCP policies. The proposed community plan amendments do not change adopted community plan land use designations or policies.
