Crossroads Redevelopment Project Area
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 1,031-acre Crossroads Redevelopment Project Area and Redevelopment Plan were established by the City Council on May 6, 2003 (Ordinance No.19174 N.S.). The area either connects with or is in proximity to the Redevelopment Agency's City Heights, College Grove, and College Area Redevelopment Project Areas, as well as the redevelopment project areas of the cities of Lemon Grove and La Mesa. The Project Area also enjoys close association with San Diego State University, the College Grove Shopping Center, and the Joan Kroc Center, a 12-acre family support, education, recreation, and cultural arts facility.
The focus of the Redevelopment Plan is twofold: to revitalize the properties along El Cajon Boulevard, University Avenue, Streamview Drive, and College Avenue and the residential neighborhoods of Chollas Creek and Fox Canyon; and to develop the Resource-Based Parkland at Chollas Park. The goal of the Redevelopment Plan is to address the physical conditions that exist along these corridors and to have a positive impact on the adjoining single-family neighborhoods. The purpose of the Redevelopment Plan is to eliminate and prevent the spread of blight and deterioration, and redevelop the Project Area in accordance with the General Plan and applicable community plan, local codes, and ordinances.
The main objectives of the Redevelopment Plan primarily focus upon economic growth enhancement, infrastructure improvement, expansion of employment and recreational opportunities, preservation and expansion of housing stock, and retention and expansion of existing neighborhood-supporting businesses within the Project Area. The Redevelopment Plan excludes single-family zoned and designated property within the Project Area from eminent domain (i.e., a taking).
The establishment of the Crossroads Redevelopment Project Area affords the community and the Redevelopment Agency certain resources to improve the economic and physical conditions and implement the adopted community plans (College Area and Mid-City Communities). In addition to the traditional toolbox of Redevelopment, activities within the Project Area will also be implemented through other economic development tools and resources, such as business improvement districts, façade improvement programs, first-time home buyer assistance, and more.
The Redevelopment Agency has produced a video summarizing the projects and programs within the Crossroads Redevelopment Project Area as of July 2010. Click on the link below to view the video:
The establishment of the Crossroads Redevelopment Project Area ("Project Area") and Redevelopment Plan began on September 25, 2001 with the adoption of a survey area by the City Council. On February 7, 2002, the Planning Commission selected the preliminary boundaries for the Project Area and adopted the Preliminary Plan. On April 2, 2002, the City Council selected the preliminary boundaries, adopted the Preliminary Plan and the Project Area Committee (PAC) Election Procedures. On June 19, 2002, the City Council ratified the results of the Crossroads Redevelopment PAC Election of May 15 and May 29, 2002.
On September 24, 2002, the Redevelopment Agency authorized the transmittal of the Preliminary Report and Redevelopment Plan for the then proposed Crossroads Redevelopment Project Area. On January 30, 2003, the Planning Commission adopted a resolution determining that the draft Crossroads Redevelopment Plan and implementation activities described in the Redevelopment Plan were in conformity with the General Plan of the City and the appropriate community plans. On May 6, 2003, the City Council approved and adopted the Project Area and the Redevelopment Plan.
