City of San Diego invites public input on draft mobility master plan

SAN DIEGO – A series of public meetings will be held at libraries throughout the City of San Diego this month to provide more information and solicit feedback from San Diegans on the draft Mobility Master Plan.

The Mobility Master Plan is a comprehensive transportation planning effort to create a balanced, equitable and sustainable mobility system for the benefit of all San Diego residents and visitors. It will help support investments in areas with the greatest needs, promote pedestrian safety and advance the goals of the Climate Action Plan and the General Plan.

The city’s Sustainability and Mobility Department will hold a series of “open house” style events at local libraries to answer questions and gather feedback on the plan, which includes a list of mobility projects in high-need areas across the city and new program options such as neighborhood shuttles, micromobility services and transit fare subsidies.

“We look forward to hearing back from San Diegans as we work together to create and support new and sustainable ways to get around,” said the city’s Sustainability and Mobility Director Alyssa M. Muto. “This plan not only reflects the feedback we heard throughout the Climate Action Plan update process, but also the many city departments that plan for, construct and maintain our transportation system. We have worked with stakeholders and our transit agency to expand options to improve access to jobs, schools and everyday shopping needs. Through this public input process now all San Diegans will have the opportunity to learn more about the plan and share their thoughts and ideas for the various mobility options that work for them.”

The draft Mobility Master Plan includes programs and a prioritized list of projects with information about the project selection criteria, focus areas, implementation, monitoring and funding. Public input will be used to improve the plan, which will be presented to the City Council for adoption later this year.

Public involvement is key to keeping San Diego at the forefront of green, sustainable, safe and equitable mobility practices now and in the future. Because every mile and every trip counts, more sustainable mobility options can get San Diegans where they want to go.

Everyone is welcome to stop by any time during the events, and Spanish language translation will be available. There will also be one virtual meeting in April for those who were unable to attend any of the in-person events in March.
