Reporter and Web Editor, Speak City Heights
Megan Burks is a reporter and editor for Speak City Heights, a media collaborative focused on community health and quality of life issues in the City Heights neighborhood of San Diego.
Before joining the collaborative, Megan wrote about City Heights for Daniel Weintraub’s HealthyCal.org, a statewide health news publication based out of Sacramento.
Megan was born and raised in El Cajon, California and graduated from San Diego State University, where she studied journalism and sociology. Her thesis looked at the media’s effects on attitudes toward immigrants. She interned with San Diego CityBeat and KPBS’ Envision San Diego.
Kilroy Realty, which had won approval for its 23.6-acre mixed-use project in Carmel Valley, will be redesigning the project to reduce traffic and lower the height of buildings, among other changes. The project faced much opposition, and the change of plans was announced just before a San Diego City Council vote.
