10-Minute Neighborhoods - INTRA Connect Project in National City
On February 18th, National City's City Council adopted the Integrating Neighborhoods with Transportation Routes for All Plan, or INTRA-Connect for short. The plan focuses on the development of 10-minute neighborhoods, a concept that encourages in-fill development, enhanced transit use, and increased multi-modal transportation. 10-minute neighborhoods reduce the distance people need to travel to their destinations while providing sustainable transportation alternatives to access those destinations. This in turn, creates more livable communities while reducing carbon emissions at the neighborhood level.
Circulate San Diego was the lead outreach consultant on this project and worked with KTUA and City staff to engage over 400 residents during the 2-years. The project team used a mix of digital and analog outreach tools and strategies to gain valuable feedback from the community including workshops, community events, and online surveys that directly informed the final recommendations presented in the plan.
