Using Mission Hills as a Model for NP's Plan
The Mission Hills Heritage Org. presented it's own plans for the Uptown Community Plan for review and community comments. It was held Thursday, August 5, at 7:00 p.m. at Mission Hills United Church of Christ located at 4070 Jackdaw Street, San Diego, CA 92103.
This unique Planning effort built upon Local Residential input, used a Private Planner instead of being "lead" by the City Planning Department and their results were remarkable.
Their plan did not favor Business owners over Residents and was also VERY proactive about actually reducing zoning while also saving their single family home neighborhoods from Density encroachment! Those concepts are not being promoted in the City lead Plans as it goes against their "adding more Density along transit corridors" thinking! While that may be OK for local business's, it avoids taking into account all of the Residents that are living nearby that will end up with a Quality of Life REDUCTION. To make their case, they made great use of local photos, to illustrate different types of proposed Development, instead of vague descriptions of generic planning concepts and best of all, their presentation is now on the web for all to see!
