Circulate Sponsors AB 2560 to Expand Coastal Housing Access

BREAKING NEWS! Circulate San Diego is sponsoring a bill in the California Legislator.

This  week, Circulate joined by Assemblymember David Alvarez and Senator Scott Wiener to announce the introduction of Assembly Bill 2560 to expand housing access in California's exclusive coastal zone by applying Density Bonus Law, which the rest of California abides by, in that exclusive and expensive area.

Assembly Bill 2560 will help Californians of all incomes have a better opportunity to live in our heavily segregated coastal lands. Circulate has created a simple web page where you can find out more about AB 2560 and the Density Bonus Program.

Now, we need your support!

Oceanside Coastal Rail Trail – Community Workshop!

Join us on Thursday. February 29th from 6 – 8 pm in Oceanside. We will be having a community workshop, inside the Council Chambers at the Civic Center, discussing the Oceanside Coastal Rail Trail Project.

The Coastal Rail Trail is part of a connected 44-mile bike trail between the City of Oceanside and the City of San Diego. In Spring 2014, SANDAG, in cooperation with the City of Oceanside, completed a portion of the planned trail between Oceanside Boulevard and Wisconsin Avenue.

The Coastal Rail Trail Project will improve the multi-use trail connectivity between Buccaneer Park and Vista Way, and add a new trail from Vista Way to Carlsbad Boulevard.

RECAP: Paseo Artist Village Walk Audit

This past Thursday, February 8th, the planning team hosted a walk audit with Paseo Artist Village in Downtown Vista. This was coordinated with Community HousingWorks as many residents have expressed discomfort walking around the property.

The group was joined by City of Vista Traffic Engineering whom were able to experience the walking conditions first hand alongside the residents.

We thank Paseo Artist Village and City of Vista Traffic Engineering for ensuring the success of this walk!

Stay tuned for more of our walk audits in the future by following us on all social media platforms @CirculateSD.

Recap: Otay Ranch Branch’s Toddler Tales

This past Wednesday, February 7th, the planning team hosted a Toddler Tales at Otay Ranch Branch Library in Otay Ranch. This was coordinated with the City of Chula Vista as they have weekly storytimes for children.

For the Toddler Tales, Circulate was able to create an interactive storytime. We read Joan Holub's Runaway Signs, which talked about all the signs we see on the road. After the book, we had the 24 parents and children learn some vocabulary to become a safe pedestrian and the three steps for crossing the road safely. We even had some of the children and parents come up and practice the three steps on our Safety Town.

We thank the City of Chula Vista’s Otay Ranch Branch for allowing us to come and host a toddler tale! We hope to host more of these storytimes soon!
