Public Asked to Weigh in on New Parks Master Plan

By Matt Adams
The City of San Diego kicked off its Parks Master Plan effort with a series of workshops to solicit public input on how best to address the city’s future park needs.  Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced multiple regional events over the next month as a key strategy to craft the 20 – 30 year comprehensive planning document. The Parks Master Plan is one of the Mayor’s key priorities in his Housing SD plan.  The update will evaluate San Diego’s existing park inventory and explore innovative tools to address urban core needs such as park equivalencies.  San Diego maintains over 40,000 acres of parkland and ranks 5th in the nation’s Medium-Low Density Cities according to a 2017 survey of city parks by the Trust for Public Land.
