Letter: Support for Vision Zero and Quick Build Network

Circulate submitted a letter urging City Council members to include additional funding for the Safe and Sustainable Transportation All Ages and Abilities Team (STAT team) to create additional quick build bikeways in San Diego.

These bikeways should be prioritized in the areas where the most injuries and deaths occur. In addition, they should form a network that offers bicyclists of all ages and abilities safe paths throughout the urban core, and serve as a proof of concept for future projects throughout the city.

Put simply, quick build will save lives. Read the full letter here.


Solana Beach Safe Routes To School (SRTS) Assessments

For those who have been following our progress on the City of Solana Beach Safe Routes to School (SRTS) mobility assessments, we are pleased to announce that we wrapped up our final two assessments in December 2021. These assessments helped identify issues relating to student drop-off and pick-up that may make it unsafe or uncomfortable for students to walk, bike, or roll to and from school.

After completing audits at Fusion Academy and the Boys and Girls Club, we were able to prepare reports for each of the eight public and private schools within the city limits of Solana Beach. Each report contains descriptive details on the walking, biking, and driving environments surrounding the schools along with visuals and mapped representations of our site observations. Our project partners will review these reports, and then they will be distributed to the city and the schools.

We’ll definitely miss getting to roam around beautiful Solana Beach, but we’ll be back in the city soon enough to complete a few SRTS outreach events—so stay tuned!
