Join Circulate San Diego and our partners for a panel and discussion on how residents of the City of San Diego can serve on their local community planning groups.
Is your voice being represented in your CPG? Community Planning Group members help shape the future of their communities. Hear from CPG members about their experience and how CPGs can support safe streets! Circulate San Diego is encouraging a diverse group of committed San Diegans to participate in the City’s community planning groups.
Panelists will speak on:
• The value they get out of serving on a community planning group,
• Tips for how to get elected to a planning group, and
• Views on the role planning groups play in San Diego’s goal of ending all traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2025, Vision Zero.

Circulate San Diego is organizing a one-day forum designed for elected officials, key decision makers, and senior municipal staff responsible for transportation and land use planning.
The forum will jump-start the critically-needed regional conversations required to advance policies to maximize the safety, transportation, and land use benefits from the coming adoption of autonomous and connected vehicles. The forum will lay out what we know now and possible alternative futures, and provide a venue for how we might prepare.
