SANDAG Quality of Life Measure Public Input
SANDAG is soliciting public input regarding a ballot measure it is planning for November 2016. We are asking Circulate San Diego supporters tell SANDAG they support a measure that advances transit and active transportation.

B. Attend one of SANDAG's telephone town halls. RSVP on the event page to let us know you'll participate.
C. Attend one of SANDAG's Public Meetings. RSVP on the event page to let us know you'll participate.
2. What to Tell SANDAG:
A. Any ballot measure should fund advancing transit faster than the recently adopted 2015 Regional Plan.
B. Any ballot measure should have funds for active transportation, including bicycling and safe infrastructure.
C. Any ballot measure should help fund affordable housing near transit, which has been shown to reduce greenhouse gasses.
