Circulate San Diego is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create excellent mobility choices and vibrant, healthy neighborhoods.
Part of Circulate San Diego's mandate is to operate Circulate Planning and provide consulting services focused on mobility and land use in Southern California. Our work is guided by equity, accessibility, and sustainability principles. Our services include:
Safe Routes Programs
Circulate Planning has developed a variety of programs to educate the public about the tenets of walkability, safe street designs, and safe behaviors when using the road. We also offer advocacy trainings, explaining the planning processes and the various ways they can have an active role in changing their community. These programs contribute to the development of educated stakeholders who support the development of safer neighborhoods. Programs include:
- Safe Routes to School
- Safe Routes to Transit
- Safe Routes for Older Adults
- Safe Routes to Parks
Circulate has developed a variety of methods to conduct neighborhood assessments. As part of a community outreach process, neighborhood assessments are an effective method to:
- Identify User Conflicts
- Collect Input about Safety Concerns / Priorities
- Educate about Safe Streets and Complete Neighborhoods
We have a collection of colorful and entertaining ways to make the public outreach process fun and accessible. Engagement strategies include:
- Dance Parties
- Movie Screenings
- Panel Discussions
- Pop-up or Demonstration Events
- Online Outreach and Events
Active Transportation Planning and Programming
Circulate works with cities and local government to support the development of multi-modality, safe mobility choices, active transportation, and complete neighborhoods. We support the development of planning documents to include:
- Encouragement Programs
- Education Programs
- Outreach Programs
Grant Writing and Program Development
Cities and local government often have to juggle limited funding with infrastructure and programming needs. Circulate has a deep understanding of grant opportunities available at all jurisdiction levels. We help cities pursue grant funding through concept development and grant writing services.
Marketing and Public Campaigns
As a nonprofit that supports equity and the highest standards of quality, Circulate can help demystify complex planning ideas and concepts in order for residents and stakeholders to evaluate projects with the most accurate facts as possible. Our vast network of partners coupled with our creative approach makes us successful at raising project visibility and leading healthy, public conversations about the transformation of our cities.
