RECAP: First National City “Senior Saturday” Event

Last weekend on February 12th, Circulate and the City of National City’s Community Services Department co-hosted the very first Senior Saturday event in Kimball Park! It was a beautiful sunny day, and dozens of seniors braved the unseasonably warm temperatures to dance, listen to music, and interact with informational booths.

DJ Danny from 35 Alive Productions provided the tunes, Wheelchair Dancers Organization and Deseo Studios led hours of dance lessons, and MTS, Facilitating Access to Coordinated Transportation (FACT), San Diego County’s Animal Services Department, the Council of Philippine American Organizations (COPAO), and the National City Public Library distributed information on transit resources, volunteer opportunities, tax assistance, and more.

Join us at the same spot next weekend on February 26th (10am-1pm) to take a free exercise class and learn about resources for adult education, CalFresh, and Alzheimer’s! These events are a free opportunity for senior residents to come together for a wide variety of activities geared towards their interests and abilities. No two Senior Saturday events will be the same.

RECAP: Gomper’s Transportation Expo

Last Saturday, Urban Collaborative hosted the, Gomper’s Transportation Expo where the Southeastern community gathered to learn about all things mobility! There was a bike rodeo, free bike giveaway, and folks even got try test out our new remote-control car traffic calming course!

Circulate was in attendance and it was a fun day to be out with community members learning about the importance of improving transportation options.

Welcome to San Diego, Transportation Director Jorge Riveros

Last week, Circulate San Diego staff and board members partnered with BikeSD and the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition for a happy hour to meet and chat with the City of San Diego’s new Department of Transportation Director, Jorge Riveros.

Director Riveros leads the newly created stand-alone Department of Transportation, overseeing 420 staff with projects to improve our city mobility infrastructure. As Mayor Todd Gloria said during his announcement, “the city of San Diego is working to ensure that our transportation systems work for all users — whether you wish to walk, bike, scoot, stroll or roll — and mesh with our climate action goals. Mr. Riveros brings a demonstrated commitment to advancing critical transportation projects with an eye on equity in the allocation of public resources.”

We look forward to working with Director Riveros and city staff to make San Diego a better place to live, work, and move around.
