Mt. Hope and Chollas View are two
contiguous neighborhoods located in Southeastern San Diego where
residents want to improve healthy eating, safety and physical
activity opportunities. This community is predominantly a
low-density residential community with more dense residential
projects, commercial and industrial uses located near major
streets. The boundaries are the 94 freeway on the north; Imperial
Avenue on the south; the 15 freeway on the west and Euclid Ave on
the East. Approximately 2,500 people live in these neighborhoods of
Southeastern San Diego.

A farmers' market in Chollas View on Euclid Avenue
began in December 2010, and a community garden in Mt. Hope was
launched in 2011 on land leased by the Redevelopment Agency -
Southeast Development Corporation to Project New Village.
Schools are poised to participate in activities at the community
garden and farmers' market, and service providers and resident
alike believe that this represents the beginnings of a new era of
revitalization in Southeastern San Diego neighborhoods.
We envision a southeastern San Diego community that is growing
food, families, and fairness to sustain a healthy life style.
