Otay Mesa Southwest Village Subcommittee

Seeking Input on Southwest Village Specific Plan

The newly-formed Southwest Village Subcommittee is working to help guide the planning process for the Southwest Village Specific Plan, an important component of the Otay Mesa Community Plan. The Plan will detail design and implementation guidelines for village areas, public spaces, transit and other amenities. This stakeholder-led subcommittee was formed by the Otay Mesa Community Planning Group and includes property owners, local leaders, constituents and citizens. The subcommittee will keep the community informed throughout the process and invites you to get involved to learn more and provide feedback about plans for the Southwest Village.

About the Southwest Village Plan

As established by the Otay Mesa Community Plan, five districts comprise the community of Otay Mesa. Within the Southwest District is the Southwest Village Specific Plan Area, which consists of approximately 472 acres of undeveloped land, located east of Interstate 805, just south of State Route 905 and west of Caliente Avenue.

A critical component of the Otay Mesa Community Plan, the Southwest Village Specific Plan was envisioned as a compact, active area that creates sustainable and efficient land use patterns, is pedestrian-friendly, transit-oriented and embraces a variety of land uses including residential and commercial uses, community facilities encompassing schools and parks, and permanently protected open space.

The Southwest Village Specific Plan, like the recently adopted Central Village Specific Plan, will detail design guidelines for the development of village areas and include specifics on the community’s village core, public spaces, multi-modal circulation system, transit sites, public facilities and amenities.

About the Committee

The Southwest Village Subcommittee is an ad hoc subcommittee formed by the Otay Mesa Community Planning Group (OMCPG) to garner input from local stakeholders on land uses, residential and commercial densities, transportation circulation and other important land use measures associated with the Southwest Village Specific Plan.

The subcommittee will be made up of stakeholders including members of the OMCPG, property owners, local leaders, constituents and citizens, who will help guide the specific plan process. The ad hoc group will also provide residents the opportunity to learn more about plans for the Southwest Village, share any concerns and provide feedback. The subcommittee will meet regularly and this website will act as a resource for meeting dates and related meeting notices, agendas, minutes and other materials.
