World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims Observed by
Councilmember Ward, SDPD, and Circulate San Diego
Today, Councilmember Chris Ward, the San Diego Police Department, Circulate San Diego, and safe streets advocates observed World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims near Vision Zero corridor University Avenue. As part of World Day of Remembrance, residents in cities from Seattle to Boston, to San Diego mobilized at public events to urge action to save lives on our streets through Vision Zero. Circulate also facilitated an interactive memorial with cutouts of bicyclist and pedestrian figures where participants shared memories, posted pictures, and wrote their ideas for making streets safe for all.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the Kaiser Hospitals Foundation.
Join Circulate San Diego, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Building Industry Association’s y|GEN 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 you can get elected to your CPG! Circulate San Diego is encouraging a diverse group of committed San Diegans to participate in the City’s community planning groups.
Our gracious partners from the Building Industry Association will be hosting a happy hour before the event at the Hotel Republic San Diego | Topside Terrace, 4:30 - 5:45. Come and enjoy a complimentary drink before the event and mingle with panelists and other civically-minded people.
