With the recent update to the San Diego General Plan and the current updates to the North Park and Uptown Community Plans, University Heights, many of San Diego’s older communities, are at a crossroads as the city shifts its focus from development in San Diego’s suburban communities to infill and redevelopment in our older urban communities.

This blog was created by long-time UH resident Kristin Harms to educate University Heights residents and businesses about the community plan update process and to keep you informed as the plan updates affecting UH move through the City’s approval process.

As former Chair of the University Heights Historical Society, Kristin led a community-wide effort to obtain input from UH residents and businesses regarding their vision for UH, and to work collaboratively with City of San Diego planning staff, Uptown Planners, North Park Planning Committee, and other community leaders to incorporate this feedback into plans for our community’s future. For for more information, please visit What’s Happened.

For efforts on behalf of University Heights, Kristin received the 2014 City of San Diego Historical Resources Board Award of Excellence for Individual, 2008 Save Our Heritage Organization People in Preservation Award, and the 2007 City of San Diego Historical Resources Board History Award.
