  5. Tacos + Transit: Transit Stations with Street Food*
  6. City Hall (Teleconference Model)*
  7. Better Land Use: Prioritize People Over Cars
  8. Parks + Public Squares (Design Refresh)
  9. Designate a Chinatown (with special zoning)*
  10. Asian Night Markets
  11. Electoral Reform (Democracy Dollars + RCV)
  12. Local Journalism, Civic Education, Non-Profit Dividend
  13. Urban Innovation Lab + Civic Technology HQ
  14. Digital Modernization + No Ugly Websites

Anything annotated with * indicates something I randomly came up with

The rest are awesome ideas from elsewhere that should be implemented in San Diego.

I also outlined my vision for how we get to functional mass transit here: Isaac’s Vision for Tacos + Transit

Finally, I’ve outlined the role of Design Thinking in local government here: Let’s Design A Better Relationship with Government
