Working with a Re-Use Planning Committee and City of San Diego staff, M.W. Steele Group developed a Specific Plan, a Reuse Plan, and Urban Design Guidelines for the adaptive re-use of the Naval Training Center, also known as Liberty Station. The Plan balanced preservation and adaptive re-use of existing historic structures, with an increase in density and a combination of residential, office, educational and recreational uses. Urban Design Guidelines were developed to direct the redevelopment and ensure new construction met the intent of the overall vision.
Community outreach was a significant feature of the planning effort. In addition to open meetings, community and group presentations, flyers, newsletters, and press releases, most meetings of the Re-Use Committee were videotaped for cable television.
