This research is a case study examining the relevance of three holistic city frameworks—Compassionate Cities, Healthy Cities, and UN Sustainable Development Goals—to the intentional or tacit thinking of city leaders, community leaders, and activists of Marina, California. Beginning with a discussion of the origin and development of the three frameworks, the study occurred in three phases: Phase I involved interviewing the five elected leaders, city manager, community development leaders, and two planners; Phase II consisted of a survey of appointed city leaders and community organizers and activists; and Phase III was an analysis of relevant public discourse, drawing from local newspapers, social media, and city council and other public agencies’ agendas and public records. In the background is a discussion on the challenges of a city that is transitioning from a former U.S. military base support city to one that embraces a new generation of urban dwellers, becoming an economically and socially sustainable municipality.
