Letter: Response to the City Regarding Complete Boulevard Study

In response to the final design concepts outlined in the Complete Boulevard Planning Study, Circulate San Diego lauds many of the proposed infrastructure improvements making walking safer along the El Cajon Street corridor.  However, the improvements included in the final design concept fail to account for bicycling facilities.  As such, we believe Alternatives 8b and 6 are better at allowing for bicycling facilities and maintaining desired elements for all modes including on-street parking, a connected facility for bicyclists, and safer crossings for pedestrians.

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.
