How do you think San Diego should grow?

Online voting to continue through January with results incorporated in new 'vision' plan

If you wonder who’s planned San Diego into such a mess of sprawling housing developments, jammed freeways, underperforming schools and poor employment prospects, the San Diego Foundation has the antidote -- you.

The cyber-teach-in will be used in preparing a new vision for the region, set for publication next spring, with the added promise that this time, when someone sketches out a vision, it will get implemented.
