Letter: AB 805 (Gonzales Fletcher) - Support

Yesterday, Circulate San Diego sent Governor Jerry Brown a letter to share our support for AB 805 to reform transportation entities in the San Diego region.

The structure of our metropolitan planning organization, SANDAG, as well as our two transit agencies, MTS and NCTD, need reform. All three entities distribute power disproportionally among smaller and less central jurisdictions, which is not consistent with the democratic principles of one person, one vote. 

For San Diego to move forward, and to achieve California's greenhouse gas goals, we need the structural reform called for by AB 805.

Letter: Serra Mesa Community Plan Update/Road Connection Project

Last week Circulate San Diego sent City of San Diego Councilmember Scott Sherman to share our support for the road connection between Phyllis Place in Serra Mesa and Franklin Ridge Road in Mission Valley.

The connection is proposed in the Serra Mesa Community Plan Amendment. We feel that this connection with bicycle and pedestrian facilities is particularly important because it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support smart growth development, and increase connectivity for our communities in a manner that promotes transit, mobility, and bicycle accessibility.

Letter: Support for AB 805 (Gonzalez Fletcher)

Circulate San Diego's board voted to support AB 805 (Gonzalez Fletcher) to reform transportation entities in the San Diego region.

The structure of our metropolitan planning organization SANDAG, as well as our two transit agencies, MTS and NCTD, need reform. All three entities distribute power disproportionally among smaller and less central jurisdictions, which is not consistent with the democratic principles of one person, one vote.

The structure of our transportation organizations also results in policy outcomes that are not consistent with California’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Instead of prioritizing transit and active transportation to help San Diegans move about our region, SANDAG often relies on counterproductive strategies such as expanding freeways.

For San Diego to move forward, and to achieve our collective greenhouse gas goals, we need the structural reform called for by AB 805.

Our formal endorsement letter is available online in PDF format here.
