Construction is a necessary evil for developers, public contractors, local governments, and anyone who lives or works near construction sites like the Mid-Coast Trolley sites through University City. Disruptive and noisy with visual, air and noise pollution to mitigate, they are generally a strenuous period for residents, business owners, and city staff altogether.
Construction phases are an untapped opportunity to build public support for infrastructure and development in San Diego. Through ongoing community engagement, information sharing, and public art, construction sites can be animated and adorned to alleviate the inconveniences they cause for local communities.

Recently, the County of San Diego began compiling success stories from its Live Well partners to create the new 2017-2018 Live Well Report. This report highlights how Live Well partners have contributed to the following 5 areas of influence: health, knowledge, standard of living, community, and social. As a Live Well partner, Circulate San Diego has contributed towards those areas of influence, in particular to community, which aims to create clean and safe neighborhoods.

Circulate San Diego awarded its smart growth certification, the Circulate Mobility Certification, to the 6th & Olive mixed-use project from Greystar.
Located in Bankers Hill, the 6th & Olive project from Greystar earned the Circulate Mobility Certification for proposing a 204-unit residential building, including 18 affordable units, in close proximity to transit routes and other amenities. In addition to the 204 rental units, there is a 10,500 square foot proposed courtyard that will be available to the public, nestled between the existing St. Paul’s Cathedral and the proposed development.
