Circulate TPA Efforts in Voice of San Diego

Voice of San Diego reported this morning on Circulate’s success in modifying a code update to generate more housing, not less.

The rule change would have remapped where many of San Diego’s housing programs apply. The original proposal would have resulted in less housing capacity in high resource areas. We wrote a letter of opposition, which resulted in an investigation by the State into our Fair Housing concerns.

Because of our advocacy, the City revised the proposal to include more areas in high resource neighborhoods. We would like to thank City staff for making these revisions. Check out the letter of support for the new proposal:

Lincoln Cluster of Schools Clean Mobility in Schools Program

Did you know the communities near Lincoln High suffer from some of San Diego County’s worst air quality? In 2021, the Lincoln Cluster Clean Mobility in Schools Project was awarded multi-year funding by the California Air Resources Board, bringing clean technology into the neighborhood and helping to reduce air pollution and improve the community’s air quality. Investments include electrics school buses, an electric bike program, electric trucks for the district’s food delivery program, electric landscaping and cleaning equipment, free workforce training on zero-emission automotive careers and electrical trades, and more. These improvements will be implemented through this year, 2023, and will have positive environmental impacts for years to come.

Circulate is participating in the project by providing pedestrian and bicycle safety assemblies to 14 schools in the Lincoln Cluster, as well as helping with the administration of the program’s electric bike pilot for staff and students at Lincoln High. Stay tuned for more information on events and demonstration projects associated with this program in the next few months!
