Launch Party for #PlanDiego


You are cordially invited to join Circulate San Diego to celebrate our 2nd anniversary with the launch of #PlanDiego. 

Great cities don’t just happen, they’re planned. On March 10, 2016 we are launching #PlanDiego, a region-wide initiative to make planning and land use smarter, more inclusive, and fun! Circulate San Diego will be releasing a series of position papers, hosting panel discussions, and organizing community events to elevate the discussion of planning and land use throughout the San Diego region over the coming year.

Wine and refreshments will be served.

Our launch event will be on the evening of March 10, 2016, at a rooftop open-house at the Circulate San Diego downtown office, 1111 6th Ave., 92101.

For sponsorship opportunities, contact Jim Stone, [email protected].
