In August 2014, Hillcrest Community groups met to discuss ideas for transforming Hillcrest. The Hillcrest Business Association, Hillcrest Town Council and the Uptown Community Parking District came together to support alternatives to San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) Uptown Bike Corridor Project.
SANDAG proposes to remove dozens of parking spaces throughout Hillcrest to make way for bike lanes. As SANDAG quickly moves along in its engineering phase the Hillcrest Community has been left in the dark!
On September 17th the Hillcrest community is invited to a discussion on creative alternatives to SANDAG’s proposal. Local architect Jim Frost will be discussing his proposal for SANDAG to make Hillcrest a more beautiful place to eat, play, stay and bike!
Bring your ideas and hear From SANDAG and City Representatives.
- How much parking will we lose ?
- How will bike lanes affect your business?
- Will we create new parks?
- What would get you on a bike?
- Who is going to pay for the up keep? And how much will it cost?
