San Diego is a city that is still gaining it’s idenity. It’s not that SanDiego isn’t defined… It is known for the great weather, gorgeous waterfront location, Balboa Park, Petco Park, the Navy and more; what I’m saying is there is room amongst all the new development to make your mark, to have a say in the overall direction that downtown will head in the future. Want to have a say? Be informed about what’s going on. A great way to do this is attending CCDC meetings. What is CCDC?
‘CCDC is the public, non-profit corporation created by the City of San Diego to staff and implement Downtown redevelopment projects and programs. Formed in 1975, the corporation serves on behalf of the San Diego Redevelopment Agency as the catalyst for public-private partnerships to facilitate redevelopment projects adopted pursuant to redevelopment law. Through an operating agreement, CCDC is the Agency’s representative in the development of retail, residential, office, hotel, cultural and educational projects and public improvement projects.’
Here are some meetings/events going on this month…
