What Does the DCPC Do?

DCPC provides a vehicle for public participation relating to the growth and redevelopment of Downtown San Diego and serves as a communications link between its citizens and the City Council. DCPC also represents Downtown on the citywide Community Planning Committee. DCPC sponsors various community meetings and workshops to seek public input on community matters downtown.


Once a month the DCPC meets to review development and design proposals, redevelopment plans and programs, development and loan agreements and other downtown development policies and programs. Affordable housing, transportation needs, street lighting, homelessness and social issues are some of the subjects discussed and studied.
