Welcome to Viva-city and Downtown San Diego

Meet Sandra Simmons

Sandra Simmons When I first visited San Diego on a short-term assignment, I knew instinctively this was a city I would live and thrive in.

Something about the way the city presented itself as the plane landed; the approach over Balboa Park, the sparkling bay, the inherent promise of an unpolished but fascinating city told me that this was where I belonged.

Viva-city is the culmination of my experience and connections in Downtown San Diego.

In this endeavor, I draw on the 21 years spent Downtown witnessing its renewal, and exploring its every inch.

The aim of Viva-city is to connect residents with all that Downtown has to offer and to support its unveiling as a world-class city.
