We have sent a letter to Mayor Kevin Faulconer supporting the proposed placemaking policy amendments to the Municipal Code.

Last week Circulate San Diego sent City of San Diego Councilmember Scott Sherman to share our support for the road connection between Phyllis Place in Serra Mesa and Franklin Ridge Road in Mission Valley.
The connection is proposed in the Serra Mesa Community Plan Amendment. We feel that this connection with bicycle and pedestrian facilities is particularly important because it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support smart growth development, and increase connectivity for our communities in a manner that promotes transit, mobility, and bicycle accessibility.

Circulate staffer, Paola Boylan, advocating for Vision Zero funding at FY2018 Budget Hearing.
Vision Zero encourages cities to take a data-driven approach to reducing serious injuries and traffic deaths. It is meant to be a catalyst for moving projects forward. However, it is the people who advocate for this initiative that truly build the urgency for action.
The Vision Zero Coalition is a group of advocates that are representatives of organizations throughout San Diego. Together with constituents of their community, they work towards increasing street safety by focusing on moving projects forward that protect pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorist. They also work to inform residents about Vision Zero and to build momentum around critical events that can lead to long-term change, such as the City’s budget approval.Read more
