Share your mobility ideas for the University Community

    The City of San Diego needs your help to identify transportation improvements for the University Community. Please take this short questionnaire to let the Planning Department know how to improve the transportation facilities for all modes of transportation including vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and transit. Ideas will be reviewed and considered for inclusion in the amendment to the Transportation Element of the University Community Plan.

    The questionnaire will remain open until February 19, 2016

University Community Plan Amendment

The University Community Plan (UCP) is undergoing an amendment to the Transportation Element of the Plan. The Amendment will analyze and update the transportation facilities necessary to serve existing and future development in the University Community Plan Area. The Amendment will incorporate the General Plan Goals into the community plan as they relate to the vision, values and the City of Villages strategy and the provision of public facilities, analyze the impacts of the removal of Genesee Avenue Widening and the Regents Road Bridge for the UCP, and consider any additional issues identified through the amendment process. The Amendment was initiated by City Council on September 29, 2014.
