Circulate Press Conference to Fix the Fatal 15 Calls for Budget Changes

On May 13th, Circulate San Diego, Families for Safe Streets, and the San Diego Bicycle Coalition held a press conference at one of San Diego’s 15 deadliest intersections. We urgently called on Mayor Gloria and the City of San Diego to include crucial, cost-effective improvements for these dangerous intersections in the FY25 budget.

Our message received wide coverage from KPBS, Fox 5, Streetblog California, NBC 7, CBS 8, The Vista Press, BikinginLA, ABC 10, and Times San Diego. Spanish language outlets, including Telemundo 20 and KSDY 50, featured the story.

Thank you to our very own, Maria Walker, for fielding our Spanish interviews. This kind of visibility is essential for advancing the conversation about safer streets in our region.

AB2560 To Expand Coastal Housing Access Passes Assembly

Circulate’s sponsored legislation, AB2560 (Alvarez) has passed the California Assembly by a vote of 50-5 on Monday May 20. AB2560 would eliminate the exemption of the Coastal Zone from the state's Housing Density Bonus Law.

“Wealthier areas along California’s coast need to do their part in building more housing,” said Assemblymember David Alvarez. “This change in the highly successful ‘Density Bonus Law’ will make sure that communities along the coast also build housing for low and middle-income Californians. The current law prevents housing along with denying access to California’s coast to the average citizen.”

"The Coastal Act's original intent was to protect coastal access for all Californians. But over the past 50 years, the coast has become the most exclusive and segregated part of California. Density Bonus Law only applies where there is already multifamily zoning. That makes it a win-win for creating coastal housing access for ordinary Californians while still protecting our sensitive coastal wetlands," said William Moore, Policy Counsel for Circulate San Diego.

Policy Counsel Will Moore on NBC 7 Laments Stalled Project, Praises Developer for Completing Affordable Units

On Tuesday, Circulate was featured in a story by NBC 7 regarding the stalled Riverwalk project in Mission Valley. Circulate Policy Director Will Moore praised the project for completing the first group of 188 affordable units before the project was put on hold. He also observed that delays in projects like this make it harder for San Diegans to pay rent throughout the city, and we need better policies to allow both large and small projects to get built faster on more predictable timelines.

Bike Rodeo at Summer Safety Fair

Circulate is working with other non-profits in Chula Vista to host an amazing event called the Summer Safety Fair at the Loma Verde Community Center on June 8th from 1 pm- 4 pm. There will be lots of fun for people of all ages.

Circulate will lead a bicycle rodeo and distribute bicycle safety materials, Scripps Health will provide free helmet fittings, Loma Verde Community Center will host free swim lessons in their brand-new pools, and the City of Chula Vista Police and Fire Departments will be providing safety drills on how to properly install a car seat in a car, free microchips for pets, and more. Close to the end of the event, there will be an opportunity drawing for 2 children’s bicycles for those who either register for swim lessons or come to our rodeo.


SANDAG’s Bike Anywhere Day was this past Thursday, May 16th. Circulate had the pleasure of partnering with both the City of Chula Vista and San Diego State University to host two pit stops for Bike Anywhere Day! We were happy to interact and chat with hundreds of cyclists traveling around San Diego County. We had to opportunity to pass out helmets, bike bells, reflective slap bracelets, and more to participants.

Although Bike Anywhere Day 2024 is over, May is still bike month. Take some time to ride around your favorite bike path or explore somewhere new to celebrate in this month’s bike festivities!

Recap: Cyclovia Encinitas

This past Sunday, Circulate had the pleasure of tabling at Cyclovia Encinitas! Downtown Encinitas was closed to vehicles from 10am – 2pm, and we met folks from all over the county who walked, biked, or rode transit to the event. There were hundreds of attendees, and people of all ages and abilities walked and rolled up and down the seven blocks.

Circulate gave away plenty of bicycle safety educational materials, bells, and lights throughout the day. We had many attendees express their interest in having similar events throughout the year, so they could walk and bike through Downtown Encinitas without worrying about parking or their safety. We look forward to similar events as well and wish everyone a Happy Bike Month!
