Today, Circulate San Diego released our newest report "Democracy in Planning."
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.
