Fairmount Village is located on the mesa south of University Avenue and east of Fairmount Avenue. The area is considered ?Downtown? City Heights. Local projects are a major focus of the Smart Growth strategy by the City of San Diego.
The area is predominantly single-family homes, with some duplex development and apartment development predominantly near University Avenue. Commercial development is concentrated along University with scattered businesses on Fairmount Avenue and Euclid Avenue. The recent development of the City Links Project, along with the Rosa Parks Elementary School, have brought new life into Fairmount Village.
