    I live near Granite Hills High School in El Cajon and now that school is back open there are a ton of kids walking on N 4th street, which has no sidewalks. Apparently no one ever taught these kids how to walk. They are on both sides, skateboarding into traffic, riding bikes on both sides, walking with their nose buried in their phones and mostly wearing dark clothes and hoodies. As it gets darker it’s like an obstacle course driving to work.

    Hi,


    Since natural disasters are a constant threat, it’s important that we do everything we can to protect our families, our homes, and ourselves from their potentially devastating effects. That’s exactly what my site is dedicated to, and it’s why I’m reaching out to you today!


    I hope that in order to help your site’s visitors stay safe no matter what bad weather comes their way, you’ll consider adding some disaster safety information to one of your resource pages. Maybe it would be a good fit on a page with helpful information for local residents?


    Here are my suggestions. As you can see, this list covers a wide variety of natural disasters, so feel free to use all of these or pick and choose the ones you think are most relevant for your audience:

    Hi, folks. The Clairemont Town Council would like to invite someone from Circulate to speak at our September monthly meeting. Our topic is “All About Streets, Clairemont Edition”. We’ve asked someone from City Streets Division to speak about Street maintenance and repairs, and someone else to talk about Street safety and how citizens can request a safety study to determine whether a new stop sign, light, etc. is warranted. We will allocate 10 minutes for Circulate, if you can attend, and ask that you focus on Circulate issues and actions related to Clairemont. About four years ago, I invited Maya Rosas to talk to our general meeting and I think it’s time for an update! The meeting will be held Thursday, October 3 at 6:30 at Clairemont High School Auditorium.

    I want to make you aware of a dangerous corner for scooters and bikes. It has been dangerous for 6 years since Central Library has opened. It is J and 11th. On 11th it is clearly marked as a straight lane but cars turn from “middle” lane. The city will only work with me short spurts and not correct the situation. I have contacted directional apps, city, corporations illegally turning, etc. So cars make the illegal turn and also do it on the red. If more bikes and scooters acturally use the lane, they will be in more danger.

    Hello,

    I have leave in South San Diego for about 20 years. My daughter and I had to recently move to another location in Chula Vista, CA. We both have disabilities, I am in my late 50’s and she frequently uses a mechanical wheelchair or a walker. We leave on F ST, on the same block as the Fire Station. We don’t have our own vehicle, so we use public transportation to go to school, employment trainee, shopping, and basically everything. Unfortunately, all of the bus stops are far for us (and other neighbors in similar position as us) from were we leave, on F and 5th. In addition, the area is dark and not safe, and when it rains like last and this year, the ramps for wheelchairs seems like small lakes where we have to pass no mater what to get to our house. The bus rout 704 was moved to run by F St instead of E St, and we were very happy, even though we were going to have more noise, pollution, and it was going to turn more unsafe since there are no signs and, as I mentioned, it is pretty dark; nevertheless, we were exited to have a bus stop closer to us.. However, we were extremely disappointed when we realized that they only brought to our street the garbage and used us as a back yard because they didn’t included us, since the closes bus stops the 704 bus stops are at the Chula Vista Public Library on F and Garret and the next one, after Broadway Ave. When a Community Councilor called to ask why or how could we start the process to request a stop in the middle of those two stops, he got a message as an answer screaming that it was the way “the people” wanted it and that those were the plans for the renovation of that area, but no information about how to start the process we needed. Therefore, I would like to ask you to, please, let me know what would be some options to help with this situation, since there is a population (people with disabilities, older, low income, etc) in this area in need of a more suitable way of transportation to be able to get to different places.

    Thank you.

    Hi!


    Although there are millions of people with disabilities, one of the topics a lot of people don’t think about when it comes to this community is jobs. And while some people obviously aren’t able to work due to a severe physical or mental disability, there are millions of differently abled individuals who work — but just like with everyone seeking or trying to hold down a job, it’s not always an easy feat.


    On that note, I thought you might be interested in adding some job-related resources to one of your pages for those with disabilities. Here are some great ones:

    Should I or Shouldn’t I?

    https://abilityjobs.com/should-i-or-shouldnt-i/

    The title of this article doesn’t do a very good job of explaining it, but this piece is all about “deciding if, when, and how to share disability-related information with a prospective or current employer.”

    Hello, My name is Jamie and I work with Discover Bike San Diego, formerly DecoBike San Diego, a bike share company in partnership with the City of San Diego. I am looking to add some statistics for a presentation we are creating for local businesses, to encourage employees, customers, and business developments to be more bike and pedestrian friendly.


    San Diego’s population growth outpaces parking, particularly in densely populated areas. While this can be observed visually on many days, I am looking for data to indicate this statement is true, perhaps in an urban planning report?


    Also, I want to include some positive statistics about benefits of increased bike and public transit ridership with statistics. Please direct me to any reports you or your partners may have completed in the last year or so, particularly if the results point to themes such as:

    - riders have uncovered new businesses they like that they didn’t notice before.

    - riders feel they are more familiar with San Diego neighborhoods when they go by bike (or transit)

    people feel they have or would also use bikes or transit in other cities.


    Thank you in advance for an y help you can provide to help increase awareness and encourage less dependence on cars in San Diego.


    Thank you,

    Thank you for reading this e-mail.I am pleased and honored to announce the launch of my thesis book titled “Green Network”.This thesis book took one year of hard work and perseverance. It is a journey of going outside of my comfort zone, traveling 7,628 miles and understanding the diverse culture of San Diego. I would like to thank NewSchool of Architecture & Design for its generous Scholarships as well as the American Association of University Women (AAUW) for supporting me. I could not have done it without both of them. Also, I would like to thank my Thesis Advisors, They have believed in me when I did not believe in myself. It was an honor working with all of you.


    Thesis Advisors:


    Michael Stepner, FAIA, FAICP, Chair of Architecture Programs


    Vuslat Demircay, PhD., Thesis Advisor


    Frederick Besancon, AIA, ASLA , Faculty Advisor


    Leigh Ann Pfeiffer, Architect, LEED AP Legacy, Advisor


    I have successfully presented the Park-to-Bay Project to Barrio Logan Community Planning Committee, Southeastern Community Planning Committee, Golden Hill Community Planning Committee and the Port of San Diego. Below is the Park-to-Bay Project briefing and the Author Bio.


    Project Summary:
    A wise urban planner named John Nolen recognized the two biggest assets in San Diego are the bay and Balboa Park. 100 years ago, he suggested creating a Park-to-Bay link. The recent CityLinks study found it to be successful through 25th Street and Cesar E Chavez Pkwy spanning 2.1 miles. The link connects three communities that were joined before the construction of the 94 and I-05 freeways. By connecting Barrio Logan, Logan Heights, and Golden Hill to form the Nolen Corridor, we create a place that matters. This thesis recognizes the need for parkland not based on density since it is unstable and dynamic. It focuses on a more solid foundation, for example, walkability and pollution levels according to CalEnviroScreen 3.0. The corridor aims to connect four parks; Balboa Park, Grant Hill Park, Chicano Park and Cesar E Chavez Park by a linear park. Aiming to satisfy all users’ need and promote an active healthy community, the proposal offers a safer and healthier environment for pedestrian, cyclist, and automobile. The study utilizes research, precedents, site visits, site analysis, events like community planning groups and interviews to imagine how such a project can be accomplished. Finally, it develops a computer-based 3D model demonstrating the vision. Images are not enough to imply experience, so a video focusing on the heart of the project to create the “Logan’s Plaza” was also produced. The video includes wayfinding signage, Gateways, and placemaking characteristic. The video is available online and it starts from 25th street with L street and ends at Cesar E Chavez Pkwy.

    Dear Circulate SD,


    I just heard Maya talk at the Planning Comisson Hearing regarding the Serra Mesa plan amendment. She spoke a lot about pedestrian and bicycle access being important. However, I don’t know if you were aware that per the FEIR CEQA actually recommends the bicycle, pedestrian, and emergency access only. The reason they don’t support the project alternative is that several of the mitigations for the project alternative required staff to write a “statement of overriding considerations” to allow the removal of bicycle lanes in Serra Mesa. Therefore the proposed connection will have bicycle lanes that no longer connect because they need to be removed in order to accommodate additional traffic. This will discourage people from commuting on their bicycles which also reduces VMTs by taking cars off the road.


    I would urge you to consider only supporting the bicycle, pedestrian, and emergency access alternative only.


    Best,

    Adam Gardner.

    I live and work downtown, and my commute is a 1 mile walk. Over the past year this commute has become more and more treacherous. Drivers just don’t care anymore, and there are no police on the streets to pull them over. As Jim Greene pointed out, there are plenty of idiot pedestrians out there too. However, I see far more people driving dangerously than walking out in front of traffic (though that does happen quite often).


    I have submitting over a dozen “traffic concern” reports, to which I have never received a response from the SDPD. Today on my 1 mile commute I was nearly hit FIVE TIMES by drivers not stopping at stop signs or red lights. Usually it’s about once every couple of weeks. I can only imagine how many injuries are going to happen this weekend during Comic Con…


    There seem to be two main issues that are making it more dangerous to walk (or bike, or drive) downtown: cell phones and the lack of traffic enforcement. People LOVE their cell phones. So much so that they will walk out in front of a train and get killed by it! Every single day I will see drivers on their cell phone as they run a red light or stop sign, almost hit a pedestrian, hold up traffic, etc. etc. I don’t even want to call them “smart” phones anymore because of how absolutely stupid they are making people. Then there’s the cops, or lack thereof. I can count on one hand how many cops I see on the road each month. With no cops enforcing laws, people will continue to break them, and break more of them. Didn’t get caught speeding? How about speeding while texting? No? How about speeding through a red light (like a trash truck I saw one day)? No? Try speeding through a red light while texting, I bet you still won’t get pulled over, even if you do it right in front of a cop because it will probably be the one that I saw sitting stopped at a green light texting and holding up traffic.


    So my question to this community is this: What can we do? I’ve contacted the police (many times), the mayor (multiple times) and even the governor. None of them seem to care that we’re out here getting injured or killed by drivers who are breaking laws that nobody is enforcing.
