Complete Communities: We're All In
San Diegans’ quality of life depends on a vibrant economy, a healthy environment and thriving neighborhoods. Complete Communities is an initiative to set us on a path to achieve our goals and shape a future that works for all of us with a focus on four key areas: housing, mobility, parks and infrastructure.
Complete Communities includes planning strategies that work together to create incentives to build homes near transit, provide more mobility choices and enhance opportunities for places to walk, bike, relax and play. These efforts ensure that all residents have access to the resources and opportunities necessary to improve the quality of their lives.
Thoughtful and inclusive planning initiatives and programs aim to create a healthy environment and thriving communities that will serve to enhance the quality of life for all residents, regardless of their background and identity.
Housing Solutions includes incentives aimed at ensuring that all citizens have access to a variety of housing options across all income levels. The program also supports communities of concern with additional funding to create neighborhood amenities, such as pocket parks and plazas.
Encouraging new development within a half-mile of high quality public transit will provide more housing options across all income levels, boost transit ridership, reduce vehicle emissions and motivate active lifestyles.
Mobility Choices aims to connect every San Diegan with safe and convenient mobility alternatives that can reliably connect them to jobs, shopping, services, neighborhood parks, open spaces and other amenities.
The City of San Diego’s landmark Climate Action Plan includes a broad range of activities aimed at reducing the level of emissions released into our atmosphere, while promoting a healthier and more active lifestyle.
With more mobility choices, roads can become less congested and everyone, regardless of their background and identity, will enjoy a cleaner San Diego.
The City of San Diego is planning for a citywide interconnected park system with more opportunities for everyone to get outside and play. The City seeks to expand recreation facilities beyond traditional parks. This creates more options for play, exercise and social connections in our city.
An interconnected parks system requires prioritized funding for current and future facilities, programs and services. These priorities are linked to changes in housing, infrastructure and mobility in a way that is both fiscally and environmentally sound.
Play Everywhere serves as a long-term roadmap for planning for investment to create more recreational opportunities that are enjoyable and easily accessible by everyone.
A modernized funding structure enriches Complete Communities, which enables faster and more efficient delivery of public facilities and infrastructure across all communities.
Consolidating funding to build infrastructure will expedite more projects across the City and deliver public facilities and essential services sooner to those who live in disadvantaged neighborhoods.
