The Uptown Community Plan Update

The City of San Diego is updating the 1988 Uptown Community Plan concurrently with updates to the community plans for Golden Hill and North Park.

The City's community plans are long range planning documents established as essential components of the General Plan. The community plan update process will develop the community-specific detail, relevant policies, and implementation strategies necessary to fulfill General Plan objectives. The General Plan sets out a long-range vision and policy framework to guide future development, provide public services, and maintain the qualities that define San Diego over the next 20+ years. The General Plan also has a focus on how to design infill development and reinvest in existing communities.
