First of three trolley station design meetings Tuesday

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The first of three public meetings is scheduled Tuesday to take input on the design of future trolley stations along the planned mid-coast route.

The Tuesday workshop – which starts at 3 p.m. at Westfield UTC – will focus on stations in University City.

From 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., public comment will be taken on the Pepper Canyon, Voigt Drive and Veterans Affairs Medical Center stops. Stations at Nobel Drive, Executive Drive and Westfield UTC will be discussed from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Workshops scheduled for July 15 and July 28 will look at stations in Clairemont and Linda Vista, according to the San Diego Association of Governments, which is hosting the events.

The nine-station trolley line will connect the Old Town Transit Center with UC San Diego and the Golden Triangle business district.

The planned route follows existing track into La Jolla, where it will turn west to the university campus and medical facilities. It would then head east and travel the median of Genesee Avenue to the shopping center.

Construction is set to begin next year, with the line opening in 2019.
