Circulate San Diego Supports Safe Streets in Chula Vista with Traffic Calming Pop Up at Starlight Children’s Faire
Circulate San Diego will be at Starlight Children’s Faire ahead of the Chula Vista Starlight Parade to educate Chula Vistans about safe streets and Vision Zero, the goal of ending all traffic fatalities and serious injuries.
Circulate will demonstrate a high visibility crosswalk, bulb outs, and a parklet to show how safe street improvements can be implemented across Chula Vista, and solicit feedback on what improvements residents would like to see. Chula Vista is currently undertaking important safety projects and plans such as installing traffic calming improvements on Broadway and developing an Active Transportation Plan.
When: Saturday, December 7th, 2:00 – 5:00pm
Where: 373 Park Way, Chula Vista, CA 91910
- Circulate San Diego staff
- Families participating in the demonstration
What: Circulate will bring their creative engagement tools to educate and gain input on safe streets. Features include:
- Crosswalks: a rug painted with a high visibility, zebra-style crosswalk that will be rolled across the intersection.
- Bulb-Out: the sidewalk is extended into the street at the intersection to increase visibility and safety of pedestrians.
- Parklet: a mini-park with artificial grass located in a standard on-street parking space.
Circulate will also bring a large visual survey for passersby to note their safe street project preferences and a giant Connect Four game.
Visuals include traffic calming pop up, families engaging with Circulate staff within the Starlight Children’s Faire, large boards with images of safe street improvements, and games.
