Uptown Planners approves plans for community improvements

SAN DIEGO -- In a special meeting of the Uptown Planners, the community-planning group heard and approved an action item regarding projects specific to San Diego’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for fiscal year 2014.

Board member Christopher Ward led a subcommittee to review and recommend items to be voted on by the larger group in regards to the CIP. The group unanimously approved the subcommittee’s recommendations, moving them to the next governing body in the process, the Community Planners Committee (CPC).

The CIP is the long-range plan for all San Diego capital projects, defined by “construction, purchase or major renovation of buildings, utility systems and other facilities,” the city’s website states. The CIP Review and Advisory Committee analyzes numerous factors, including CPC recommendations, before final approval by the city council.

“There are a lot of factors that the city wants us to consider, not just community beautification and enhancement, but also interest in public health and safety, whether there are alternate sources of funding, and a couple of other factors,” Ward said.
