Public participation is a cornerstone of city planning and a pillar of democracy. Everyone should have a voice in how decisions are made, especially in local government. In the City of San Diego, City-sponsored community planning Groups (CPGs) serve as the primary vehicle to facilitate public participation in the planning process.

CPGs provide a space for community members to serve their City, and their input frequently improves development and transportation projects.

Our report details a variety of proposed reforms to ensure that everyone has a voice in the community planning process.
