2021 Momentum Awards Success
It was wonderful to come together, in person, for our 2021 Momentum Awards and celebrate the people and projects in the San Diego region that are creating excellent mobility choices and vibrant, healthy neighborhoods.
We want to thank everyone who attended Wednesday’s event, including our generous corporate sponsors. This night definitely could not have been as successful as it was without you.

Report release: SANDAG Reboot
Circulate released our report, SANDAG Reboot, on Tuesday 11/9/2021. The report is a culmination of months of research, and gives an in-depth summary of what's actually in the 2021 Draft Regional Plan.
Our report release included a well-attended lunch and learn program, a recording of which is available on YouTube. We had 89 attendees, including Mayor of Encinitas and SANDAG board chair Catherine Blakespeare, government agency staff, press, and members of the public. Our report and lunch and learn were covered in Streetsblog California.
Walk and Bike Audits in Cathedral City
Our planning team visited Cathedral City in Riverside County this week to perform a total of 5 walk and bike audits to identify mobility concerns and inventory existing infrastructure. We found missing sidewalks, high speed corridors, gaps in the bike network, and connection opportunities to community destinations such as parks, the downtown, and the CV Link bike trail.
Stay tuned to hear about our recommendations for this wonderful desert community!
Move Carlsbad Workshop Series
That’s a wrap! Last week concluded the Move Carlsbad workshop series, part of the Age-Friendly Carlsbad Initiative made possible by a partnership with The San Diego Foundation and AARP.
The series consisted of four community workshops geared towards seniors and persons with disabilities, educating participants how to move around Carlsbad without a car. Topics were Rideshare 101, Transit 101, Walk and Bike 101, and What’s Next in Regional Transportation and Mobility. The series invited guest speakers from SANDAG, the police department, city staff, and local community and mobility groups.
If you missed it, watch the workshops on the City of Carlsbad website here!
