Mission Bay Planners Seeking Community Input

ReWild Mission Bay, a project of San Diego Audubon to enhance and restore up to 170 acres of wetlands in the northeast corner of Mission Bay, will hold its second community meeting next week.

Residents are also encouraged to attend a community meeting for the De Anza Revitalization Plan two days later, an effort by the City of San Diego to revitalize the De Anza area within Mission Bay.

These meetings give community members an opportunity to ask questions and provide input about the two overlapping projects. ReWild Mission Bay’s geographies, timelines, and goals co-exist with the City of San Diego’s De Anza Revitalization Plan. To learn more about their relationship, please click here.

Mission Bay attracts more than 14 million visitors each year. Its wetlands supply habitat for hundreds of local wildlife species, protect San Diego from climate change impacts and improve water quality.

ReWild Mission Bay seeks public input to ensure that its final plans represent a feasible, community-supported strategy to restore the northeast corner of Mission Bay to health. It also encourages the community to be involved in other projects in this area to ensure the neighborhood voice guides key planning processes.
