Growth near the Mexican border in Otay Mesa depends on the southern city's success working with the City of San Diego on building village communities with centers in mixed lots, half business park and half home blocks. The two cities, following Tuesday's San Diego city council vote on an updated Otay Mesa Community Plan, will work together to build the future industry base that fits in the City of Villages strategy.
Services industry locations will give locals growth in the number of new jobs in Otay Mesa. Businesses that serve customers in telecommunications, science, and data lead a future services industry the Otay Mesa plan estimates will makeup 38 percent the employment market near the border in 2030. Manufacturing and wholesale industries will grow into the future years, but take in a lower share of the local employment market.
A new industrial park zone adds opportunities to build the half business park half home blocks lots.
An international industrial park zone in the updated Otay Mesa plan will set up land for mixed uses that put research and development, offices, and homes together in the same location. Lot building opportunities are planned for lots near the U.S.-Mexico border.
Industrial growth centers add to job opportunities near the border roads. Four industry centers are planned for mixed uses east of the Otay Mesa point of entry, on the southern border road at La Media Road and Britannia Boulevard, and north of the 905 highway, at Brittania Boulevard near Brown Field.
Planners used the border roads and transportation network to tie all the employment centers to nearby village iving spaces. Village home construction will move ahead in west Otay Mesa, south and north of the 905.
