Our vision for Grantville in the year 2030 is for the improvement and reestablishment of an older neighborhood in central San Diego. We envision an attractive, balanced community with a desirable quality of life that capitalizes on its proximity to a network of freeways, trolley lines, natural environment, waterways, and open spaces. In the year 2030, Grantville is a community that…
- Respects the vitality and livelihood of locally owned and operated businesses while promoting the expansion of new business opportunities;
- Contains an appropriate mix of auto, pedestrian, bicycle, and public transportation opportunities for optimum mobility;
- Offers a variety of housing opportunities while considering neighborhood scale and integrity;
- Connects residents and visitors to the San Diego River while providing safe and adequate buffers from developed areas; and
- Contains sufficient public facility amenities such as neighborhood and community parks, libraries, schools, and emergency services.
