The city is asking residents to fill out a survey to help set "priorities, viewpoints and needs" for updating the plan.

“This is an opportunity for all San Diegans to give us their ideas and thoughts about how we continue our push to create a cleaner and greener city,” said San Diego Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer in a news release about the survey.

Cody Hooven, chief sustainability officer for the city of San Diego, joined Midday Edition on Wednesday to discuss how San Diegans can contribute ideas.
