Point Loma Nazarene University is helping the San Diego Foundation cast a vision for the future of the greater San Diego region.

PLNU is a participating partner in the foundation’s Our Greater San Diego Vision program that is surveying San Diego residents to help create a plan for San Diego’s future. In addition, PLNU’s director of community outreach and governmental relations, Megan Ekard Collins, is one of only 100 people selected from the San Diego region to sit on the Our Greater San Diego Vision council as an ambassador.

“We want to plan for San Diego’s future to help ensure that future generations can enjoy America’s Finest City as much as we do today. We expect 1.3 million more residents in San Diego County in the next 40 years, so now is the ideal time to cast a vision for the way we want our community to grow,” said Ekard.

Survey participants voice their opinions on issues such as education, jobs, housing, the environment, and future amenities such as parks, sports and entertainment venues, libraries, museums, and the arts.

Thus far, PLNU is reporting a survey rate that is eight times higher than most other participating organizations.

PLNU encourages students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, parents, and friends to participate in the survey and help shape our community’s future. Please visit www.ourgreatersandiegovision.org/PLNU before Jan. 31.
