From an article in the San Diego Union Tribune.
The San Diego City Council approved new zoning policies Monday allowing developers to more quickly and cheaply build large mixed-use projects featuring dense housing blended with commercial and industrial uses.
The goal is spurring more developments in suburban-style parts of the city with large surface parking lots, such as Mission Valley, Kearny Mesa, Mira Mesa and University City.
The zoning would encourage more megablock developments such as Civita in Mission Valley, which doesn’t have a traditional street grid and includes dense housing plus retail and industrial uses.
Although the changes are geared for certain areas, they would apply citywide and would allow developers to explore such projects in all San Diego neighborhoods.
