Letter: Support for Morena Corridor Specific Plan

Circulate San Diego submitted a letter in support of the Morena Corridor Specific Plan. The Specific Plan proposes safe street improvements like a two-way cycle track along Morena Boulevard and new sidewalks, improvements that are consistent with the City’s Vision Zero commitment. Circulate does not support the recommendation from the Land Use and Housing Committee to reclassify Morena Boulevard from a three lane collector to a four lane collector because the added lane will increase motor vehicle capacity and decrease the space committed to creating safe bicycle infrastructure.

We are encouraged to see the proposal’s staff report express the need to coordinate and offset the added cost resulting from the proposed inclusionary regulations.
