Blueprint SD Initiative, Hillcrest FPA, and University CPU Program EIR
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The project location is the entire city of San Diego municipal area, as land use policy and plan updates and future San Diego Municipal Code amendments to implement the project may apply citywide. However, consistent with the Blueprint SD Initiative, the City anticipates future Community Plan amendments that would involve redesignation of existing land uses within specific areas, referred to as Climate Smart Village Areas. The University Community Plan and Local Coastal Plan Update area (University CPU) and the Hillcrest Focused Plan Amendment (Hillcrest FPA) area are project components addressed in more detail than other areas in the City. The University CPU area is located approximately 13 miles north of Downtown San Diego and includes key locations such as Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, Torrey Pines Golf Course, and UCSD. I-5 traverses the center of the community, SR-52 forms the southern border of the community and I-805 runs along the eastern edge within and outside of the community. MCAS Miramar is located along the southeastern border of the community. The Hillcrest FPA area includes approximately 380 acres of the Hillcrest and Medical Complex neighborhoods in the Uptown Community Plan area.
