Housing the Next 1 Million Charrette
November 4, 2017 - November 5, 2017
San Diego County needs to prepare for natural demographic growth and its impact on each community in the region. Based on Census and analytic data from SANDAG, by the year 2050, our region will need to accommodate another one million people. With most of those born here, this growth translates to the need for more than 400,000 new housing units to be built in the county by 2050. As a culmination of five housing conferences and nine best practice workshops conducted over the past year, as well as the California Economic Summit being held in downtown San Diego November 2-3, the AIA San Diego Chapter will lead more than 150 architects and multi-disciplinary citizen volunteers to individually spend 20 hours over two days in a regional planning and design charrette envisioning their own neighborhoods.
- Full-Day Planning and Design Charrette – Saturday, November 4, 2017,
8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 5, 2017, 8 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
- Town Hall Meeting (Team Presentations) – Sunday, November 5, 2017, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Where: County Operations Conference Center, 5520 Overland Avenue, San Diego, CA 92123
Who: The planning work will represent the nine City Council Districts as well as north, east, and south county neighborhoods. During this intensive weekend, Local Design Assistance Teams (L/DAT) will explore, analyze and prepare presentation drawings with maps and charts to demonstrate opportunities for new, more compact, transit-centric mixed-use villages, and propose alternative housing solutions for another one million inhabitants. All members of the public are invited to attend the presentations on Sunday evening.
Why: Will next generations of San Diegans have the right to mainstream jobs and housing that is attainable and affordable in 2050? If the ever-escalating cost of land and regulatory fees is not stabilized, then no. The region must build at least 12,000 new housing units each year to have a more stable marketplace for balanced growth through 2050. This full-weekend regional planning and design charrette will involve detailed growth planning and design schemes to prepare for more beautiful, green, pedestrian oriented, safe, healthy, accessible, and energy efficient places for all citizens with walkable / bikeable jobs for the workforce to live, work, learn, and play.
