Report Summary

Circulate San Diego worked with the Cortez Hill Active Residents Group (CHARG), the Downtown San Diego Partnership to release the Cortez Mobility Assessment and Recommendations Report. The report provides recommendations to improve pedestrian safety and increase mobility options in the Cortez neighborhood of Downtown San Diego.

The mobility assessment took place from July to November 2019 and included a review of existing documents, an online survey, a neighborhood walk audit, and a community meeting. In addition to providing short, medium, and long-term recommendations, the report serves as a record of the community’s input and provides evidence of the community’s concerns and preferences.

Since the beginning of 2020, Circulate has been working with CHARG and the Downtown San Diego Partnership to implement some of the short-term recommendations contained in the report and identify funding sources for the medium and long-term recommendations. Projects have included parklet and bike parking memos, neighborhood walking loops, wayfinding and signage, and demonstration projects that enhanced the pedestrian experience and serve as response strategies for COVID-19.
