CHAPTER 4 Our Greater San Diego Vision

3. A Quality Learning Environment Effectively Prepares People for Life San Diegans want an effective learning environment that maximizes individual potential and well-being, prepares individuals to be well-informed and actively engaged in civic and political matters, and enables individuals to participate effectively in a dynamic, global economy. San Diegans want to explore a variety of new approaches, including some that would require radical change. Ensuring an effective education system is critical to developing a competitive labor force that will attract employers, foster multicultural awareness and understanding, build a participatory democracy, and maximize the opportunity for all San Diegans to succeed.

4. Neighborhoods Are Safe, Vibrant, and Convenient Centers of Community Life, Arts, and Culture San Diegans’ quality of life is strongly dependent on where we live, how safe and secure we feel, how well we know our neighbors, and whether there is a vibrant sense of community. We want to live in a place where it is easy to get to work, get kids to school, access green space and cultural amenities, and spend time with family and friends. We also want a community that has character and identity based on the creative and artistic contributions and aspirations of our residents. These dimensions of cultural vitality are linked to economic development, positive health outcomes and civic engagement. As the region grows, we must reinvest in existing neighborhoods and grow new neighborhoods, so that all people of the San Diego region have desirable places to live.
