Southeastern San Diego is a large urbanized and ethnically diverse community located adjacent to downtown San Diego. The Southeastern San Diego community includes the neighborhoods of Sherman Heights, Logan Heights, Grant Hill, Memorial, Stockton, Mount Hope, Mountain View, Southcrest and Shelltown.

The original Southeast San Diego Community Plan was adopted by the City Council in 1969, and became the basis of the City's "Model Cities Program." The community plan was updated and adopted by the City Council in 1987 and 2015. One of the features of this community plan is the identification of the various neighborhoods within the planning area. This includes a move toward establishing neighborhood identity which is linked to each neighborhood's culture and history through the involvement of citizens and the establishment of revitalization teams.

Southeastern San Diego is in Council District 4, Council District 8, and Council District 9.
