The city of San Diego announced Tuesday it will begin reviewing the growth blueprint for the Barrio Logan neighborhood.
The neighborhood, which is south of downtown and runs along the waterfront, has gone 29 years without an update to its community plan. From the parking lot of an elementary school ensconced between industrial sites, city officials blamed the time lapse for contributing to an unhealthy collocation of industry and residential uses.
“All the conflicting uses down here have over time probably created the problems you have had within the community,” said Councilman Ben Hueso, who represents the neighborhood.
The Centre City Development Corp., which oversees planning downtown, announced that it would contribute $1.5 million to the plan update to compensate for the effects downtown’s growth has had on surrounding communities.
