The work on developing land in the growing southeast San Diego neighborhoods will not move forward until after a city consultant finishes work on assessing the damage done to the air quality additional traffic will build up. Environmental work takes a step forward. City councilmembers approved the additional work in an amended contract Tuesday.
The city has been working with communities in the southeast urban areas and Encanto to make the land use, zoning, and road system fall inn line with local plans for growth. The land use pattern, considered out of date, has not been developed well enough to keep up with the growing crowds of residents and their mobile lifestyles.
Meetings on the updates to the community plans for southeast San Diego and the Encanto neighborhoods have been giving locals the opportunity to face the challenges for development growth has caused. The consultant will help the development planners lower the impact on traffic volume on the roads in the future, and the key intersections, and lower the black cloud effect emissions have on the local air.
Analysis on the emissions reveals the environmental threats examined using the state CARB board's model.
Community development in the two urban areas has not been fully settled. There are additional challenges to overcome before the plan updates are done. In communities the building heights are growing too high, and the buildings group together thick and crowded, the city has to find space for public facilities. And find lots to build affordable housing on.
