Watch the New Vision Zero Video then Urge Mayor Faulconer to Complete and Activate the Vision Zero Strategic Plan

vz_vid.jpg

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.

Circulate San Diego Releases New Report on Placemaking
Pages_from_creative_placemaking_FINAL.small.jpg

Both in San Diego and around the country, there are signs that leveraging the power of arts and culture into traditional planning processes can improve neighborhoods while better serving community interests. This convergence of interests has created a field that practitioners are calling creative placemaking. The movement is growing rapidly in part because cities around the U.S. are looking for tools to redevelop communities in ways that not only increase economic development, but also build social capital among community residents.

In San Diego, the movement is grassroots oriented, bubbling up through community-led projects. As the projects continue, City staff is being asked to create a new process to make community dreams, some of which are relatively simple, become reality.

Vision Zero: University Avenue
20160803_173451_(1).jpg

As part of last year’s budget process, staff in the City’s Transportation and Stormwater Department committed to evaluating the corridor with the highest concentration of crashes and designing engineering improvements.

Since then, City staff determined the ½ mile section of University Avenue—between Fairmount and Euclid Avenues—to be the most problematic with the highest number of crashes. City traffic engineers, in partnership with the offices of Mayor Faulconer and Councilwoman Marti Emerald, responded by organizing the University Avenue Working Group with the mission to “Improve safety for all modes as part of Vision Zero.” Circulate San Diego has been pleased to participate in this group.

To review the alternatives and to take the survey, check out the project website.

SANDAG's 11 Miles of Urban Bikeways Headed to the Finish Line and Why Advocates Should Listen to the Arguments that Moved the Project Forward
Capture_Uptown_Bike_Network.JPG

A discussion with SANDAG’s Board of Directors last week about 11 miles of urban bikeways included a lot of elements we have become familiar with: business and property owners present to argue against parking loss; bicycling and walking advocates present to speak in favor of safety and connectivity to get around without a car.
