“Instead of ... destroying housing and uprooting residents, we might focus on these long commercial strips, so vital to the city, so deteriorated, and so amenable to change without social dislocation.” 

Temporary Paradise? (1974)

The Urban Core KAN seeks policy and design solutions that balance the pressures of growth within the urban core with the advancement of social equity and community character.   

C-3's Comments on the Complete Communities Initiative

C-3 calls on the City of San Diego to take the time necessary to ensure that the vision laid out by Complete Communities is implemented to its full potential. More community engagement and more attention to the issues we and other organizations have raised are of paramount importance in these challenging, changing times.


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.
