The Future of Our Neighborhoods: Stories that Create a Vision

Our neighborhoods are changing. A growing population and a need for more housing are bringing new projects into neighborhoods at an unprecedented rate. Some projects enhance the neighborhoods; others detract.

By engaging our residents about where and how they want to live, we create urban development that connects people to their communities and to each other.

Join Moderator Joan Isaacson at our February Breakfast Dialogue for stories of projects that advance the future of our neighborhoods - through performance and visual art, architecture and design - while fostering economic and community development. 

Mike Burnett, Principal at Foundation for Form will discuss the You Got Mail residential project in North Park which is using an urban, mixed-use concept that incorporates the neighborhoods now defunct landmark Post Office.

Rob Schupp, Director of Marketing and Communications at the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System will discuss the success and impact of Trolley Dances, in which patrons board the MTS line for neighborhood stops featuring site-specific dance.

Helen Ofield, President of Lemon Grove Historical Society and Former Lemon Grove Planning Commissioner will explain the five-panel Lemon Grove History Mural that was awarded the Governor’s Historic Preservation Award in 2014.

Brad Lents, Project Manager at Spurlock Poirier will provide background on the Paradise Creek Housing Project and Park in National City where the City and the community have jointly embarked on a new plan for the neighborhood. 

Kathy Dodson, Assistant City Manager at the City of Carlsbad will walk us through “Carlsbad Village: Authentic and Successful” and discuss some of the local changes that are keeping the area vibrant.
