Circulate San Diego submitted a letter offering support and suggestions for the forthcoming "Spaces as Places" program. This new and innovative program is an opportunity to transform San Diego's streets into vibrant community spaces.

III. Create a Streamlined, Efficient Process; and
IV. Allow a Broad Spectrum of Placemaking Projects that are Open to the Public.
V. Ensure that Design Restrictions are Minimal
