 End of Year Giving


At Circulate San Diego, we believe that everyone should be able to afford to live and work in our community. That’s why we advocate for more home production, and for affordable homes.

Last year we championed a bonus program at the City of San Diego to encourage more developers to include deed-restricted affordable homes, in exchange for allowing the construction of more market-rate homes. The policy was adopted, and we published research a few months ago showing that it’s working.

Our efforts are leading to a more affordable San Diego. Our work is creating more opportunities for low and middle income families to get a fair shot at life in San Diego.

Will you make an end-of-year gift to help us power more victories for housing affordability in San Diego?

Community Planning Group Training Recap


On Wednesday, December 6, Circulate San Diego, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Building Industry Association’s y|GEN co-hosted a panel and discussion on how residents of the City of San Diego can serve on their local community planning groups (CPGs). 

The panel, moderated by Sean Karafin of the Chamber of Commerce, included Nancy Grahm, Senior Planner with the City of San Diego, Oscar Medina, Golden Hill CPG member, and Sarah Jarman, who works in Councilmember Scott Sherman's office. Panelists spoke about the role of community planning groups, the value in serving on one, and gave tips on how to get elected.
