San Diego River Park Master Plan

The San Diego River Park Master Plan (Adopted 2013) provides the vision and guidance to restore the relationship between the river and the surrounding communities by creating a river-long park, stretching from the Pacific Ocean at Ocean Beach Park to the City’s jurisdictional eastern boundary at the City of Santee. This plan is the result of the grass roots community efforts in partnership with the City of San Diego.

The Master Plan covers the 17.5 mile stretch of the San Diego River and includes two distinct planning areas, called the River Corridor Area and the River Influence Area. The River Corridor Area consists of the 100 year floodway along both sides of the river, plus 35-foot path corridor on each side. The River Influence area consists of the first 200 feet adjacent to the River Corridor Area, also on both sides of the River. To implement the San Diego River Park Master Plan, the following community plans have been amended; Mission Valley, Navajo, Tierrasanta and East Elliott to be consistent. In addition, the following three sections of the Land Development Code have been amended: Mission Valley Planned District, Navajo Community Plan Implementation Overlay Zone and the Mission Trails Design District.
