IMAGINE UC 2020
Our park, our schools, our community
Imagine UC 2020 is vision for our community in the area along Governor Drive that has been presented by San Diego Unified School Board member John Lee Evans and other community leaders. As shown below, Governor Drive and its surrounding streets run through the heart of South UC, providing a community path to three public schools, Standley Park, and nearby shopping areas. This hub also allows easy access for thousands of residents who walk and bike along Governor Drive and surrounding streets.
Over 100 community members gathered at the Standley Middle School in February and again in April 2015 to discuss the Imagine UC 2020 Vision and specific projects that could be a part of it. Ideas proposed and discussed at those meetings include our Pavilion project in Standley Park, the expansion of Swanson Pool into an aquatic center that will meet competition requirements for our schools, and provide new features for community members of all ages, and a walking track around Spreckels Elementary and Standley Middle schools.
We envision individual or collective projects funded as public/private partnerships, with portions of the funding coming from the San Diego Unified School District, the City of San Diego, and from private sources. At this time, there is no financial commitment from any of these three sources, and significant feasibility work must be done once we reach a consensus about the vision.
