Letter: FY 2020 Budget Recommendations for City Council Final Budget Modification Priority Memoranda

Circulate submitted a letter to San Diego Councilmembers with recommendations for the FY 2020 budget. Circulate’s bicycle infrastructure recommendations have not yet been funded in the proposed budget and we ask that they be incorporated into the final FY 2020 budget. In our January 11 letter, Circulate recommended fully funding Phase 3 of the Downtown Mobility Plan Cycletracks and two Bicycle Master Plan Priority Projects located on Vision Zero Corridors El Cajon Boulevard (43rd St to Montezuma Rd) and University Avenue (Boundary St to Winona St).

The May Revise estimates $2.4 million in annual revenue from scooter permitting fees and dedicates $100,000 towards Vision Zero education. A higher share of this revenue should be dedicated to the important task of promoting safety by and for scooter riders. Circulate recommends funding these street safety projects in order to reach its Climate Action Plan and Vision Zero goals.
