SANDAG to host public meeting on future of San Diego transportation

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego Association of Governments will host a community meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday to continue discussions on the future of San Diego County’s transportation network.

The meeting is part of a series of events put on by SANDAG in October to gather feedback on an eventual transportation network plan that will go in the agency’s 2019-2050 regional plan. SANDAG currently has three concepts that it will use to draft an eventual plan. The concepts — titled Shared Mobility, Connected Corridors and Policy Possibilities — take into account priorities such as traffic congestion reduction, community health and climate change consideration.

“This is a key first step in the process of deciding what types of projects, programs, and technologies we will invest in now and in the future,” said SANDAG Chair and Del Mar City Councilman Terry Sinnott. “Now is the time to take part in the conversation about how we will get around in the future — so come to the open house, join a community conversation with local elected officials, take our survey, and give us your input.”

In addition to the community meeting, SANDAG members will give an update on the concepts to the San Diego City Council’s Smart Growth and Land Use Committee during its 2 p.m. meeting Wednesday.

City Councilwoman Myrtle Cole will host the community meeting at the Jacobs Center Community Room. City Councilwoman Georgette Gomez, who also serves as Chair on the Smart Growth and Land Use Committee, is expected to attend the meeting as well.
