City Heights is centrally located in the San Diego metropolitan area, south of Mission Valley, north of the Martin Luther King Freeway (State Route 94), between Interstates 15 and 805 on the west and 54th Street on the east. Development in City Heights is a mixture of single-family and multi-family residential with commercial and other non-residential development concentrated along the major arterials, including El Cajon Boulevard, University Avenue, Fairmount Avenue, and Euclid Avenue. There are also pockets of neighborhood commercial areas throughout the community. A small portion of industrial development is located on the southern edge of the community.
Within City Heights there are sixteen distinguishable neighborhoods, each with its own identity. Neighborhoods that comprise City Heights are: Corridor, Teralta West, Teralta East, Colina Park, Cherokee Point, Castle, Azalea Park, Hollywood Park, Fairmount Park, Bayridge, Fairmount Village, Swan Canyon, Islenair, Ridgeview, Chollas Creek and Fox Canyon. Neighborhood associations in each neighborhood are the focal points for local control of local affairs and are the sources of recommendations to the City Council.
