Welcome to the communities of the North City Area of San Diego where residents truly enjoy the best of both worlds.
The six communities represented by the I-15 Diamond Gateway Chamber of Commerce lie within the San Diego city limits, so residents enjoy easy access to all the amenities you’d expect in the nation’s sixth largest city. Yet, each community has its own personality and the friendly feel of a small town with distinct neighborhoods, carefully preserved natural landscapes and a thriving business climate.
San Diego’s “City of Villages” philosophy has allowed it to develop while retaining its natural beauty, giving each neighborhood its own personality and flavor. For example, the city’s Neighborhood Revitalization team works with communities to enhance streetscapes. These efforts benefit businesses and residents alike, improving the quality of life and enhancing the atmosphere for business to promote a thriving, successful economy.
San Diego is the second largest city in California, with a population of 1.2 million and 101 distinct communities within the city limits. The communities of the I-15 Diamond Gateway — Carmel Mountain Ranch, Sabre Springs, Rancho Penasquitos, Scripps Ranch, Mira Mesa and Miramar — are located in the northern part of the city, about 15 miles north of downtown.
Careful planning has ensured orderly development of the area while respecting and preserving this coastal region’s natural treasures for the enjoyment of generations to come.
The Diamond Gateway communities have a combined population of 177,000, with distinctive neighborhoods nestled amid beautiful mesas, hills and canyons. The size of individual communities range from 6,500 in Miramar to about 72,000 in Mira Mesa.
As a city, San Diego prides itself on its ethnically diverse population. In the Diamond Gateway communities, roughly one-quarter of the population is Asian, and other ethnic groups also are well represented. This rich mixture of cultures and traditions greatly enhances the quality of life for residents of the I-15 Diamond Gateway.
