Mayor Cox Provides Chula Vista Update
The Pacific Southwest Association of REALTORS® (PSAR), a 2,000-member trade group for San Diego-area realtors, recently hosted Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox for an update meeting presented by PSAR’s South County Government Affairs Committee.

Cox, who has served since 2006 as mayor of San Diego County’s second largest city, briefed PSAR members on recent developments about the Chula Vista Bayfront Master Plan, a 535-acre waterfront property. In coming months, potential developers will be identified as viable candidates for the planned convention-oriented resort hotel that would anchor future commercial development of the Chula Vista waterfront.

She also discussed plans for the 375-acre University and Innovation District in the southeastern part of the city, which is earmarked for a four-year university presence and technology-related businesses. Mayor Cox also touched on emerging transit projects that will serve the South Bay through the development of a Bus Rapid Transit system, a second international border crossing at Otay Mesa and the $700 million freeway project now under construction, connecting state Route 905 and a stretch of new highway from I-905 east to Enrico Fermi Drive.

PSAR members also were interested about McMillin Companies’ multi-billion-dollar Millenia project, located just east of SR125 at Birch Road. The planned 210-acre community is to include about 3,000 multi-family residences, two million square feet of office space on 30 acres, 1.5 million square feet of retail, hospitality, civic and mixed-use projects. Population is projected to reach 8,500 in about 20 years.
