Planning Group votes to support initiative proposing San Diego State University campus expansion
SAN DIEGO, CA (July 27, 2018) – This week, the Linda Vista Planning Group voted to endorse the SDSU West initiative in a 12 – 2 decision, the latest in a long line of groups in San Diego supporting the only proposal that allows San Diego State University (SDSU) to expand through an open and transparent planning process.
“As a leading voice for the Linda Vista community, this vote further underscores the groundswell of community support for SDSU West,” said former California State Assemblyman and Friends of SDSU Steering Committee member Jeff Marston. “As we continue toward November, San Diegans are making it undeniably clear that SDSU West is the right initiative for higher education, the Mission Valley community and our regional economy.”
The group’s decision is critical for the Linda Vista community, which borders Mission Valley. SDSU West’s commitment to a full and open environmental review and planning process creates opportunities all San Diegans to provide input and guarantees that appropriate traffic mitigations are delivered for surrounding communities.
The Linda Vista Planning Group joins a broad-based list of SDSU West endorsements, including the California State University Board of Trustees, Sierra Club, Lincoln Club of San Diego County, SDSU Alumni Association, Aztec Club and Aztec Football Legacy, among others. The latest endorsement also comes as a recent poll found that that San Diegans prefer SDSU West to SoccerCity by nearly 2-to-1.
