(April 26, 2012) – The San Diego Foundation has released data from its ShowYourLoveSD.org survey, allowing San Diegans online access to information from the more than 30,000 responses representing diverse demographics including age, ethnicity and geography. 71,000 individual modules were completed, regarding issues ranging from education, community and cultural amenities, jobs and economic growth, to future land use and planning scenarios for San Diego.

While this is not the completed document for the Our Greater San Diego Vision itself, the release of this data from the ShowYourLoveSD.org survey has been made available to the public as part of an open and transparent process which provides the public access to review the data itself and to glean interesting and significant information by performing specific queries of the database. This data is also made available to allow action by local municipalities, planning councils and service organizations as they consider the future of their respective communities, along with the needs and desires of their populations. The data can now be found at www.ourgreatersandiegovision.org.

“We are excited to now make this information available to the entire San Diego region, and to the tens of thousands of San Diegans who expressed their vision for the future,” said Bill Geppert, Chair of Our Greater San Diego Vision. “The vast amount of data gathered is now available for the public to review.”

Bob Kelly, president and CEO of The San Diego Foundation stated, “The response to the ShowYourLoveSD.org survey was unprecedented, and this feedback from the community will help us craft the best Vision possible from the data that encompasses our shared values, priorities and voices.”

The completed Our Greater San Diego Vision document will be presented in mid-July 2012, at which time The San Diego Foundation’s newly formed Malin Burnham Center for Civic Engagement will convene to evaluate the results, engage business, government and community partners, and serve in a catalytic role for community problem solving, civic education, leadership training, and policy analysis.

“This vast array of voices,” said Geppert, “deeply encourages us as we collectively build a strong and vital vision for the region for generations to come.”
