Launch Party for #PlanDiego
You are cordially invited to join Circulate San Diego to celebrate our 2nd anniversary with the launch of #PlanDiego.
Great cities don’t just happen, they’re planned. On March 10, 2016 we are launching #PlanDiego, a region-wide initiative to make planning and land use smarter, more inclusive, and fun! Circulate San Diego will be releasing a series of position papers, hosting panel discussions, and organizing community events to elevate the discussion of planning and land use throughout the San Diego region over the coming year.
Wine and refreshments will be served.
Our launch event will be on the evening of March 10, 2016, at a rooftop open-house at the Circulate San Diego downtown office, 1111 6th Ave., 92101.
For sponsorship opportunities, contact Jim Stone, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Circulate San Diego joined with a number of transportation advocacy organizations from around California to sign onto a support letter for AB 1360, which seeks to accelerate the diffusion of new, high-occupancy shared mobility options for Transportation Network Companies (“TNCs”) like Lyft and Uber. AB 1360 will give TNCs the ability to charge individual fares for unrelated passengers sharing a ride in a single vehicle.
