What is San Diego Forward?


What do we want our region to look like in 2050? Where will we live? How will we get around? How can we grow in a way that fuels our economy and preserves our environment, takes everyone’s needs into account, and still maintains our quality of life? San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan tackles these questions and provides a blueprint for a sustainable future for the San Diego region. A blueprint leading to livable, workable, and playable communities.

The plan is built upon a forecast that lays out how we will grow – how many people will be added to the region, where they will live, and where they will work. Based on the general plans of the region’s 18 cities and the county, the Regional Growth Forecast tells us more than just how many people our region will need to support – it tells us about those people, and how their needs and desires may change over time.

From there – and working with input from the public, stakeholders, and elected officials every step of the way – planners will envision the region of our future, as well as the transportation networks that will connect us.
