City Heights is a large area/community within the city and county of San Diego. The community spans 5.834 square miles and has a population of 91,493 people giving the city a population density of 15,683 people per square mile. The community is bisected by Fairmount Avenue and can be broken down into 16 individual sub-neighborhoods like Hollywood Park, Castle, Bayridge and Cherokee Point. City Heights like many of San Diego’s older neighborhoods is in a time of rebirth and renewal with projects in process that concentrate on smart urban growth, community pride and economic improvements. Here new businesses and old mix and residents enjoy the walk-ability of the community.

The history of the neighborhood starts in the 1880s when Abraham Klauber and Samuel Steiner purchased 240 acres of land northeast of Balboa Park with dreams of development. The development was named “City Heights” and from 1910-1912 the population in the community bloomed from 400 to approximately 4000. In 1912 the area became an incorporated city named East San Diego. In December of 1923 the city was annexed by the city of San Diego and East San Diego ceased to exist and the “neighborhood” became City Heights once more. Throughout the 1930s-1950s the community grew into a commercial center and in 1965 the Mid-City Plan was adopted by the San Diego City Council for the area to help increase business and commerce in the area once again. In the 2000s, efforts have turned to more resident focused areas with the opening of new schools, a library and community center.
