The Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation partners with resident teams in an underinvested community called the Diamond Neighborhoods in southeastern San Diego, California. Our mission, “Resident Ownership of Neighborhood Change,” is based on the philosophy that residents must envision, drive, and own change in their community to make it meaningful and sustainable.
Together, we are working on a comprehensive development plan to transform 60 unused, untended, and underutilized acres into The Village at Market Creek, a vibrant community center and cultural destination in the heart of San Diego. A series of social enterprises, ultimately owned by residents, include a conference and community center, retail establishments, service providers, educational hubs, affordable housing, and a variety of marketplaces.
