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.

Growing Support to Complete the Gap in Hillcrest
Hillcrest_multi_colored_bike_corral.jpg

One year ago, 60+ bicycle and community advocates filed into the SANDAG Board Room to pledge support for a proposed protected bikeway on University Avenue in the heart of Hillcrest. Speaker after speaker testified about their discomfort riding the corridor because of feeling unsafe or a fear to even approach the corridor on a bicycle. A continuous protected bikeway would not only make them feel safe, it would encourage more people to bike. Some spoke in opposition to the project but the resounding majority were there to support.

Fast forward a year and ... Read the entire blog post here.

Policy Letter: Commitments to advancing transit in SANDAG’s 2016 ballot measure

Circulate San Diego issued a letter with recommendations for how to provide certainty for advancing transit in SANDAG’s proposed 2016 ballot measure. We believe that the measure can be further improved by providing a reasonable time frame to complete the remaining transit projects listed in the measure’s Priority Corridors program.

The most recent draft langue discussed at the June 10, 2016 board meeting provides clarity and certainty for when SANDAG’s measure would distribute active transportation funding and finance trolley service enhancements. KPBS reported on the progress at the board meeting, where the board contemplated committing to earlier funding for public transit and biking projects.
