Document Description
City Council approval of a comprehensive update of the 1981 Otay Mesa Community Plan (Plan), and the Otay Mesa Development District Ordinance zoning regulations. The update includes modifications to the various elements of the Plan to incorporate current planning policies and practices in the City of San Diego, as well as to make the Plan reflective of the substantial land use changes (e.g., adopted alignment of SR-905) that have occurred over the last twenty-five years. The updated Otay Mesa Community Plan would provide a long-range, comprehensive policy framework for growth and development in Otay Mesa over the next 20 to 30 years. Guided by citywide policy direction contained within the General Plan (adopted by the City Council on March 8, 2008), the updated community plan will identify a land use strategy with new land use designation proposals to create villages, activity centers and industrial/employment centers along major transportation corridors, while strengthening cultural and business linkages to Tijuana, Mexico via the Otay Mesa Port of Entry, as well as other enhancements to the existing planning area.
