Hillcrest Focused Plan Amendment

Plan HillcrestThe 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.
