Circulate celebrated a major victory this week when the University Plan Update moved another step to reality with the release of the Draft Program Environmental Impact Report

Throughout 2023, Circulate and our allies called for the EIR to include an alternative plan that would add 26,000 more units of housing than the City's base proposal. As demonstrated by the Making The Most of The MidCoast Report, this vital region needs housing growth to take advantage of its status as a transit, education and employment hub. 

Our efforts were successful, as the EIR released on March 14, 2024 evaluated our preferred alternative and found it to be "the environmentally superior alternative". (p. 815 of the EIR)  

The San Diego Planning Department anticipates the City Council will choose which plan to adopt in the fall. Circulate and our allies will continue to push to Make the Most of the Midcoast.  

Univeristy High Density Plan is environmentally superior alternative
