C-3's core activities are curated to support two significant and targeted advocacy initiatives annually through education, experience, and balanced dialogue. Board members work side by side with C-3's membership to plan and execute advocacy efforts including coordination with other citizen-based non-profits, hosting forums and workshops, and testifying at public hearings and committee meetings.MISSION VALLEY
Mission Bay Planning
The City of San Diego is in the midst of a multi-faceted planning effort relating to several parts of Mission Bay Park. C-3's Mission Bay Working Committee is exploring how expiring leases might create opportunities to reconsider land uses such as development, recreation, and conservation around the bay.
Mission Valley Stadium Site
The stadium site is the largest developable public property in the city. C-3's Mission Valley Working Committee is examining how we can affect the process so that the City, SDSU, and the Trustees engage the public.
C-3 has consistently organized monthly Breakfast Dialogues for decades exploring themes of a healthy environment, good design, transparent civic participation, and access to open space. The Breakfast Dialogue series is offered five times annually and focuses on programs, initiatives, and ideas that serve the public good, working to better our collective quality of life.
C-3's Urban Crawl Program is an experiential-based event designed to engage C-3 members and prospective members in exploring what is happening in our communities related to the built environment, design, landscaping, transportation, and more.
