Recap: Juneteenth Events

This last Saturday, the Circulate team spread across two events celebrating Juneteenth and African American Heritage.

Circulate staff and friends participated in 2nd Annual Juneteenth bike ride through South Bay, Coronado, and Point Loma. Organizers included the Major Taylor Cycling Club of San Diego, the World Beat Center, Black Girls Do Bike, and the SD Bike Coalition. The ride included a stop in National City to raise the Juneteenth Flag with CA Secretary of Stare Shirley Weber and National City Mayor Alejandra Sotelo Solis.

Circulate Planning Team also had a booth at the Juneteenth Festival at Memorial Park in Logan Heights. Circulate provided recent collision data of the neighborhood, separated by daytime and nighttime crashes to educate the community about traffic calming at different times of day and collect feedback for where folks feel safe or unsafe in their community.

Television Feature on Circulate Policy Helping to House the Homeless at St. Teresa of Calcutta Villa

Earlier this week, Spectrum News published a television feature about how Saint Teresa of Calcutta Villa from Father Joe’s Villages is creating new homes for San Diego’s most vulnerable.

The 407 unit project is housing people at risk of homelessness. And the project used the City of San Diego’s Affordable Homes Bonus Program, which was the subject of Circulate San Diego’s latest report “Home Run for Homes”.

“The reality is, we need more affordable homes everywhere in San Diego”, Parent said. “We have way too few homes for the amount of people who need them and, in particular, for people who are the most disadvantaged who have the hardest time finding a place to live. We especially need permanent affordable homes to make sure that they have a safe place for them to sleep and to live their lives”.
