Policy Letter: Amendments to San Diego's Municipal Code to Introduce and Define Placemaking

As part of our continuing campaign to create a placemaking policy in the City of San Diego, Circulate San Diego submitted a letter to staff in the Economic Development Department on April 26, 2017. Economic Development is collaborating with the Development Services Department to create the policy and relevant permit process. The letter highlighted requests to ensure the permit process is transparent, equitable, and inclusive.

On behalf of Circulate San Diego, whose mission is to create excellent mobility choices and vibrant, healthy neighborhoods, I am writing to provide comments about San Diego’s proposed Placemaking policy amendments to the Municipal Code. A groundswell of interest is happening in cities across the country to animate public spaces using art and creativity. At the forefront of the creative placemaking movement is an effort to encourage and support community volunteers and organizations to create amazing public spaces, and transform streets from places for cars to places for people.

Thank you to you and staff for working with Circulate San Diego to advance a placemaking policy in the City of San Diego. We are excited to see this work progress. As the policy moves forward for public input, we would like to reiterate our requests for a Placemaking policy framework that is transparent, equitable, and inclusive so as to facilitate and encourage more neighborhood placemaking projects in the City. With this in mind, we have the following comments and requests.
