Being an urban planner can sometimes feel like being a sports fan of a mediocre, underperforming team. You take a lot of hits and tough losses and are at times forced to swallow some bitter pills. I’ve questioned if being a planner is the right career for me in the same way I’ve often rationalized my support for my sports teams. I tell myself the big victories make it all worth it. Big wins, typically years in the making, are why I remain optimistic in the value of my work and our city’s commitment to creating safe streets for all road users, not just drivers.

One year ago, San Diego City Councilmembers committed to the goal of zero traffic deaths in San Diego by 2025 by unanimously adopting a Vision Zero Resolution

One year later, there is more talk about Vision Zero than action. One year is too long to wait to save lives.

We initiated an email letter campaign this past week to allow concerned San Diego residents the ability to contact the Mayor and their Councilmember.

 I have lived in Chula Vista for over 25 years.  During that time I have ridden road bikes and mountain bikes around Chula Vista and beyond.  My husband, who commutes by bike everyday to National City, and I like to ride our mountain bikes from our home near the Hilltop area to points east through Bonita Valley.  We also ride our road bikes down to the amazing Bayshore Bikeway and on to Coronado.  I believe the BayShore Bikeway is a treasure and is one of the best and most scenic rides in California.
