Project Information

  • Encourage a mixed-use transit-oriented corridor along Commercial and Imperial Avenues between Interstate-5 and State Route 15. Download the map of the master planning area (PDF).
  • Address implementation, feasibility, and urban design issues associated with creating a smart growth mixed-use setting within this predominately urbanized community.
  • Identify where roadway, sidewalk, and streetscape improvements should occur in order to enhance mobility, connectivity and safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, automobile drivers, and transit riders.
  • Evaluate if Imperial Avenue should be widened to a four-lane major roadway which could impact the mobility options and the existing community character.
  • Provide community members the opportunity to evaluate and plan for future enhanced mobility and mixed-use development opportunities.

Community Engagement

As part of the master planning process, the City requests that the Southeastern San Diego Planning Group (SESDPG) convene the meetings and workshops on behalf of the community in order to bring together the neighborhoods that are affected by the master planning process. The purpose of the SESDPG Working Group is to provide the City with feedback that is representative of the diverse interests of the community at large. Further, the Working Group will provide a public forum for the community to be able to provide input as part of the master planning process.

In order to notify surrounding residents, business, property owners, and institutional uses of the meetings and planning work being prepared, the City will notice the community by creating a website and email distribution list. The City will e-mail notices and materials to the distribution list and post all information to the website.

Consultant Team
