On April 24, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved the release of the draft San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan (Draft Regional Plan), including its Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS), which combines the big picture vision for how the San Diego region will grow over the next 35 years with an plan for making that vision a reality. Developed in partnership with the region’s 18 cities and county government, the Draft Regional Plan builds upon local planning efforts, emphasizing the link between land use planning and transportation planning.
During the month of May, SANDAG will hold seven workshops throughout the region to provide opportunities for the community to learn and comment on the Draft Regional Plan. Three public workshops will include a live-streaming option over the internet for those who are not able to attend the workshop in-person. The workshops also will feature panel discussions with community members on transportation, environment, healthy communities and economic issues related to the Plan.
San Marcos has been working on an update of its general plan since Fall 2009, and the City is now in the final stretch of its public outreach portion of the project.
The last workshop series to receive community feedback on proposed land use changes will be held this month. From there, the general plan will get further refined.
Please be aware that there may be significant land use changes near your property. These changes could include things like increased density/intensity, increased building heights or land use rezoning (i.e. mixed-use, commercial, multi-family).
Don’t miss your chance to attend one of the last community workshops on the land use portion of the general plan update and express your thoughts on proposed changes!
