Residents are invited to learn about the plans for new infrastructure in unincorporated San Diego County

SAN DIEGO – The Department of Public Works (DPW) continually strives to improve and maintain public infrastructure for its unincorporated communities. Capital projects include improvements to roads, bridges, sewer systems, stormwater and flood control systems, airports, and other infrastructure that serves the public good and helps ensure safe, thriving, and sustainable communities.

Having safe, accessible, thoughtfully planned, and well-maintained infrastructure is essential to the quality for life for residents, businesses, and visitors in the unincorporated area.

Each year DPW reviews and revises its forecast of planned and potential capital projects, the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The CIP spans a five-year timeline and ensures that we take care of aging infrastructure in a way that is aligned with the county’s Strategic Initiatives.

The capital improvement planning process is an ongoing, year-round effort. DPW crews and engineers continuously assess infrastructure conditions, connect with customers, engage stakeholders, and develop plans to identify and address capital improvement needs.

DPW staff continuously work to build and maintain public infrastructure throughout San Diego County – and they want to hear about the residents’ top priorities as they work to create thriving communities.

From October to November 2023, DPW staff will host a series of community workshops in neighborhoods to discuss the improvements being made in your community.

With subject matter experts in county-maintained roads, flood control, watershed protection, traffic, airports, closed landfills, and wastewater present during the meeting, residents will have the opportunity to:

· Learn about plans for new infrastructure such as road improvements and street paving plans in unincorporated San Diego County

· See the projects planned for their neighborhood

· Find out how to stay informed and up to date

· Ask questions and voice their opinion

The in person meetings were held in Bonita, Lakeside and Valley Center in October, but there will be a virtual meeting Wednesday, Nov 1. To register, go to
