There are big questions facing the future of urban planning in San Diego, and high-profile development battles going on throughout the city. And as always, there are countless projects of varying scope that’ll have an effect on their neighborhoods and the city as a whole.
But not all projects generate community outrage, or get caught in a seemingly endless bureaucratic morasse. Here are three neighborhood projects that have flipped the normal development narrative. One moved forward without pissing off any neighbors. Another generated conflict, until those involved met and negotiated a mutually acceptable alternative. Another can be literally picked up and moved if the neighborhood changes or wants a change.
Here’s a closer look at three such projects, selected without any scientific process. If there are other projects in your neighborhood you’d like to know a bit more about, contact me and we’ll try to include it in a future post.
