Our citizen journalists share news and ideas about relevant topics in our communities, including proceedings of and decisions by the Greater Golden Hill Planning Committee (GGHPC), the North Park Planning Committee (NPPC), and the San Diego City Council.
SoNo fulfills its mission of community engagement by hosting a series of public forums on front-burner topics; examples are below. We will resume our forum series when it is safe and healthy to meet in person again.
