City Council seeks Public Input on Parks Master Plan’s new scoring system and method for allocation of developer fees

As reported by the Union-Tribune, San Diego’s ‘complete communities’ plan is moving forward despite criticism, opposition. The broad proposal would fundamentally change how city plans housing, transit, parks, other amenities. The proposed Parks Master Plan re-allocates developer fees (less money for improvements) and emphasizes amenities over land for organized activities such as sports leagues.

For example, the proposal includes a new scoring system that rewards ‘amenities’ inside parks, such as food service and dog parks, and devalues actual park acreage. It also reallocates developer fees from wealthier communities to underserved areas. The proposal passed another milestone on Wednesday, July 15, when the Council’s Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee voted to forward the parks portion of it to the full council for approval.
