And the word on North Park continues to grow! Check out Westway’s featured article on North Park and its budding art scene: North Park Northeast of Balboa Park, this eclectic, urban neighborhood is the heartbeat of San Diego’s progressive scene, rich in the arts, lifestyle boutiques, and cutting-edge culture. “Having grown up in San Francisco, I knew that San Diego would be a major change of pace,” says Dallas Brown, a five-year local resident. “North Park is my sweet spot, a walkable, diverse neighborhood that’s constantly changing for the better—plus there’s a genuine sense of community.” Read the full article here!
The San Diego Bicycle Coalition and other agencies including SANDAG have plans to turn several streets, like Meade Avenue in North Park, into bicycle corridors. The plans for the corridors would include wider bicycle lanes and fewer cars. For the full article, visit foxfsandiego.com: http://bit.ly/1fnQfnz

Sustainable North Park Mainstreet
The Sustainability Challenge:
In 2009, Wayne Donaldson, California’s State Historic Preservation Officer, challenged North Park Main Street to become the state’s first Sustainable Main Street program.
Community leaders embraced this challenge and later that year convened a group of local stakeholders to develop the framework of a sustainability plan in North Park. Working in partnership with volunteer professionals at Platt/Whitelaw Architects, OBR Architecture, and Zagrodnik+Thomas Architects, NPMS drafted a
set of goals & objectives for a Sustainable North Park Main Street Program:
- Maintain the cultural and historic
integrity of the built and social environment;
- Increase resource efficiency and
conservation within the District;
- Increase internal community
- Provide a setting for a sustainable
The Implementation Plan: (Download 18 MB PDF)
A volunteer effort over eight months enabled North Park Main Street to secure a grant from the State Office of Historic Preservation to develop the Implementation Plan, which is to be used in a number of ways:
- Using individual buildings as precise case studies, this Plan is intended to be used as a handbook for Main Street Sustainability Program Staff to educate and
inspire building owners and business operators about how they can participate in the broader vision of a green North Park.
- By demonstrating the discrete components of a sustainability program, the Plan can be used by North Park Main Street to generate interest in potential funders to implement the various components of the plan.
- By illustrating the vision of coordinated public investments in the right-of-way,the Plan serves as a handbook for the public agencies and community advocacy groups who oversee and implement public works.
- Designed with “open architecture”, the publication is intended to be a living, growing document that can be augmented with additional digital building models, completed projects, or community proposals.
- The appendices serve both as technical manuals and as on-going records of the accomplishments of the district toward meeting its sustainability goals.
