The City of San Diego is preparing a focused amendment to the Uptown Community Plan for the Hillcrest area. Building on the Uptown Community Plan policy framework, the focused amendment will address housing and development strategies intended to strengthen the business district and bring neighborhood benefits where needed most. The neighborhood’s unique LGBTQ+ history and culture define an identity as a welcoming place for people of all backgrounds, and contribute to its draw as a place.
With a growing housing crisis and a changing climate, more is needed to address housing costs, enhance access, use of transit, and provide public spaces for all to use. This effort will address place-making, connectivity, housing, and the neighborhood’s unique identity to ensure Hillcrest thrives into the future.
The Planning Department presented at the July 7th Uptown Planners meeting to provide an overview of existing land use and mobility conditions within the Focused Plan Amendment Area.
The Planning Department presented at the June 2nd Uptown Planners meeting to provide an overview of the plan effort and share feedback received from the live webinar and online survey.
The City of San Diego Planning Department hosted the first live webinar for the Hillcrest Focused Plan Amendment on April 28. Building on the Uptown Community Plan policy framework, the process will address housing and development strategies intended to strengthen the business district and bring neighborhood benefits where needed most. The webinar included a presentation outlining the Focused Plan Amendment objectives, process, and timeline. A presentation on the existing urban form of Hillcrest provided a basis for discussion and facilitated community input on considerations for land use, mobility, and public space concepts.
