The Urban Council focuses on issues affecting the development and redevelopment of property within the urban areas of San Diego County. The range of issues we cover includes urban development guidelines, floor to area ratios, density limits, urban development fees, parking standards and more.
Appointed by the BIA President each year, our members are cutting-edge industry professionals involved with redevelopment and building in established urban communities throughout the San Diego region.
We provide a professional forum for the exchange of ideas and information among members, advise members and the association on urban development industry issues, and serve as a liaison with the California Building Industry Association’s (CBIA) Urban Infill and Multi-Family Council.
