Corporate Member Spotlight: National CORE Goes Electric
Earlier this month, the San Diego Building Electrification Coalition (SDBEC) highlighted one of Circulate’s corporate members, the affordable housing developer National Community Renaissance (National CORE) and their efforts to go all-in on all-electric.
As one of the largest affordable housing developers in the US and the fourth largest in California National Community Renaissance (National CORE) designs, builds, owns, and operates over 70 affordable, senior and market-rate properties throughout the state (with 7000+ units). National CORE has two all-electric projects in the San Diego region. In Escondido, Valley Senior Village is currently under construction and Greenbrier Village in Oceanside, is in the design stage.
Thank you, National CORE, for your continued support of Circulate San Diego. Together we are making San Diego a better place to live, work, and move around.

Third National City “Senior Saturday” on March 12th
Last weekend on February 26th, Circulate and the City of National City’s Community Services Department co-hosted the second of eight Senior Saturday events in Kimball Park! Seniors from across the region gathered together to exercise, sing karaoke, and interact with informational booths.
We’d like to extend a huge thank you to our partner organizations for this event, which included the County of San Diego Aging & Independent Services, Feeding San Diego’s CalFresh team, San Diego Oasis, and the UC San Diego Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer's Disease Research Center.
Join us at the same spot next weekend on March 12th (10am-1pm) to participate in a basketball demo, take a painting lesson, and learn about resources for transportation, vision loss, 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.
New Bikeways Downtown!
The long-awaited 4th and 5th Avenue bikeways are now open!
The ribbon cutting ceremony was held last Friday at 5th Avenue & Laurel Street followed by a community ride. The new protected bike lanes provide 4.5 new miles of bike connections between Hillcrest and Downtown San Diego, enhancing visibility and safety for bicyclists. The $12.2 million bikeway project, which broke ground in summer 2020, was funded by TransNet, the regional half-cent sales tax for transportation administered by SANDAG. The Bike lanes feature bike-specific traffic signals, bike boxes, parking protection, and more!
