“Returning the Bay to San Diego will maintain the inner city as a prime place to live and ease the pressure for suburban growth.” 

Temporary Paradise? (1974)

The San Diego Bay KAN explores the unique conditions and historical precedents that define the multitude of uses along the San Diego Bay. We are interested in driving policy and design solutions that balance opportunities for public access with economic growth.

On the eve of our 60th Anniversary, and in light of the extraordinary events of this year, we have temporarily shifted our educational programming to a digital format.

Our hope is that this collection Contemporary Dialogues on the state of our region may serve as a time capsule, reminding us of the challenges our communities have faced and that much can be achieved if we continue to build bridges through collaboration and communication. We hope that by publishing these dialogues in a digital audio format, we will reach more diverse communities, giving them access to information on the issues that directly affect them. Please listen, enjoy, and share.
