Letter: Road Widening Not Consistent With CAP, Vision Zero

Circulate San Diego has published a letter today objecting to two road widening measures before the Infrastructure Committee: expanding Mission Bay Drive Bridge from four to six lanes and widening Miramar Road to eight lanes with Class 2 bike lanes.  Widening roads does not achieve safe neighborhoods.  In fact, widening roads throughout the City has led to increased vehicular speeds and contributed to a high number of crashes in the City.  These measures are antithetical to the goals of Vision Zero and the Climate Action Plan and, as such, we ask that the projects be reevaluated.

Like many Americans, San Diegans increasingly demand safe, walkable neighborhoods. From City Heights to Carmel Valley, El Cajon to Solana Beach, Lemon Grove to Escondido, families contact our office to learn how to make their streets more walkable.

The San Diego Regional Walk Scorecard measures what cities in the region are doing to answer the call for improved walkability. Circulate San Diego’s predecessor organization WalkSanDiego created the Scorecard in 2012 to raise awareness of the actions that can improve walkability, and to foster healthy competition among cities in the San Diego region to champion walk-friendly policies and projects. This 2015 report is the third scorecard to be released.

Policy Letter: Final Comments Regarding 2015 Draft Regional Plan

Unfortunately, we must recommend that SANDAG Board members vote against adoption of the 2015 Draft Regional Plan in its current form because it does not adequately advance transit and active transportation projects.

Despite these differences, Circulate San Diego believes that the SANDAG Board can and should move forward with a region-wide Quality of Life revenue measure in 2016 that includes provisions and funding to advance transit and active transportation projects. [PDF]
