Online Survey Seeks Input On Future Neighborhood Projects In San Diego

The agency that oversees development in the city of San Diego is running an online survey over the next nine days to get community input on potential future neighborhood projects.

Civic San Diego has been running a Community Benefits Consensus program over the last couple of months in which it has held a series of public meetings. "Community benefits" is a term the agency uses for quality of life improvements, amenities and mitigations that can be included with various projects.

The agency is now turning to cyberspace. Using the website MindMixer, the survey asks about what kind of future development would bring the best economic and social benefits to a community.


"This technology will optimize Civic San Diego's many efforts to connect with and engage diverse stakeholders with diverse perspectives on what's best for the neighborhoods they care about," said Reese Jarrett, the agency president.

"Already, we've received more than 4,600 views from 650-plus unique visitors," Jarrett said. "Dozens of ideas have been contributed and commented on. MindMixer will help us to sort through what we're hearing, to exchange quality information with the public, and ultimately, to foster community benefits strategies that are responsive to neighborhood priorities on a project- by-project basis."

Civic San Diego took over the duties of the former Centre City Development Corp. and Southeastern Development Corp.
