Statement on Today’s Settlement Agreement

March 29, 2019

City of San Diego Statement:

“We’re pleased with this tentative settlement agreement which will elevate the planning and permitting services the City provides to our urban neighborhoods.  This agreement will enhance our efforts to tackle the housing crisis, create jobs, and improve the quality of life in our communities.”

Civic San Diego Statement:

“The Civic San Diego Board and staff are extremely proud of the organization’s work to help shape the communities of downtown San Diego and southeast San Diego over the past several years and bring much needed economic growth to the region.  In that vein, we look forward to the opportunity to focus greater attention and resources on executing our growth strategy within our New Markets Tax Credit and Community Lending Programs.  Both of these programs generate exceptional impacts for low-income individuals and communities within San Diego, including quality jobs and critical services.  We are also excited to expand our housing initiatives, which will secure funds to help increase our regional housing supply for middle- and low-income residents. Additionally, we will continue to assist the City in the wind down of redevelopment.”
