Crossroads/College Grove Merger
The Redevelopment Agency is in the process of merging the Crossroads Redevelopment Project Area and the College Grove Redevelopment Project Area. The merger will require a blight study, amendments to the redevelopment plans, and preparation of a Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (EIR). Public notices, public meetings/hearings, and draft documents for public review and comment are posted on the Agency's website as they become available.
General Project Area Information
The City of San Diego's 167-acre College Grove Redevelopment Project Area was adopted in 1986 to revitalize the aging College Grove Shopping Center by using tax increment revenue to finance street-related improvements around the shopping center for better traffic circulation. The Project Area, administered by the City's Redevelopment Division, comprises the 56-acre shopping center on College Avenue and State Route 94, and 111 acres of City land, including Chollas Lake Park and Chollas Landfill.
The City-owned Chollas property is identified in the Mid-City Community Plan as a resource-based park that lends itself to development as a traditional large urban park. Some of the future improvements to the area include: utility, landscape, park, and street improvements; a new comfort station; and a parking lot in addition to a traffic signal at the intersection of College Avenue and Livingston Avenue.
