About the Project

Project Statement: The purpose of the Intra-Connect project is to improve neighborhoods so that they can provide its residents with many of the daily needs, all within a short drive, walk, transit ride, or bike ride of home or work.

The City of National City is looking at ways to improve its transportation infrastructure, and land uses to develop Smart Districts. Smart Districts are neighborhoods where a ten-minute walk will provide access to essential services and day-to-day destinations such as schools or grocery stores, made possible through zoning changes and safer infrastructure.

The INTRA-Connect Plan will include a framework for how National City can direct future expenditures on transportation initiatives, make changes in land use, and create new policies, which will help kick-start private development that will support transit, walking, biking and shorter vehicle trips.
