San Diego Adopts Smart Growth Plan For Downtown
"A new road map for downtown development that calls for more density, affordable housing and parks was approved last night after seven hours of debate at a San Diego City Council hearing."
"The plan is intended to guide development through the city's core into 2030, when up to 90,000 residents, three times the number who now live there, will call downtown home.
The plan envisions a towering city center, with much of the development occurring in the East Village. Critics say it will exacerbate traffic congestion and parking shortages as well as create too many jobs with inadequate wages."
