Circulate San Diego has just released our new report on Parking in San Diego. Read the entire report here

Circulate San Diego recently launched our #PlanDiego initiative, dedicated to research and advocacy for sustainable land use policy in the region. In the coming months, we will release a series of short reports identifying major barriers to transit oriented development in the City of San Diego. These reports will be followed by a more comprehensive document identifying specific solutions we are encouraging the City to adopt to make transit oriented development more economical, affordable, and environmentally sustainable.

This report begins our exploration of barriers to transit-oriented development by examining San Diego’s current parking regulations.

Project Update: Balboa Station Plan

On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, the project team will be presenting on the existing conditions of the study area at the Clairemont Community Planning Group (CPG) Ad Hoc Subcommittee - Balboa Station Area. After the presentation, community members will be given the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.
Since the launch of our project website on April 18,151 unique users have visited the site, with the average person spending 5:28 minutes per session. We are really encouraged by the number of people we are reaching online, who may have otherwise never participated in the planning process. If you haven't already done so, please check out the site and take the survey!

As part of our commitment to provide more opportunities for people to contribute their ideas, outside the traditional workshop format, we hosted the first of several pop-up engagement tents last week at the Mike Gotch Bridge. We handed our refreshments and snacks while we solicited feedback on how to best plan for the future trolley station at Balboa Ave.
