The Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation (JCNI) is partnering with resident teams in southeastern San Diego to transform 60 acres into The Village at Market Creek, a LEED-certified neighborhood and vibrant cultural destination. Through a network of nonprofit and for-profit partners, locally-owned businesses and national tenants, a community and conference center, and a portfolio of social enterprise projects, JCNI is creating assets that will become economic engines for the community when the foundation sunsets in 2030. Under the banner of "Resident Ownership of Neighborhood Change," the people who live and work in the community create the vision, lead the implementation and own the change in their community.
Town Hall Series Launch Video
On February 26, 2015, nearly 300 residents of the Diamond Neighborhoods, community leaders, and members of our board and staff came together at our Town Hall Series Launch to celebrate our strategic plan for 2015-17 and the community input that created it.
This Town Hall event was the first in a series of meetings that will keep residents engaged in projects and programs aimed at revitalizing southeastern San Diego. The next Town Hall will focus on redevelopment projects planned for the area and will take place later this spring.
