City Heights is a neighborhood where there are 105 dialects spoken. It is a redeveloping community that has a strong collaborative of Price Charities, San Diego State University and The City of San Diego involved in many projects. With the completion of Interstate 15 through the neighborhood, much of past blight is making room for new housing and retail space. Some worry that the redevelopment is a double edged sword that will force poorer residents from the neighborhood. If the balance of economic and social diversity can be preserved, the neighborhood will retain it’s international flavor while raising the standard of living.
