Insight Strategic Session

Strategic Planning on Mobility Rusults in Coalition for City Heights Residents, Businesses and Stakeholders

City Heights, San Diego-On Saturday, July 14, 2007, several organizations and resident representatives throughout City Heights gathered to discuss mobility issues in the Mid-City region of San Diego.

City Heights Community Development Corporation (CHCDC) led the strategic session in a collaborative effort to address vital mobility issues facing City Heights. Guest speakers provided informative presentations on walking, biking, and public transportation concerns in the community. These presentations included the current challenges, positive solutions and the needed next steps toward change.

The participants were divided into specific breakout groups to further discuss major issues and then they defined the action steps that would be needed during the next 6 months. City Heights residents spoke about the need for the CenterLine Transit System as they shared their personal stories of struggle and missed opportunities due to the lack of Bus Rapid Transit in the Mid-City area.

In concluding the session, individuals were asked to make commitments on behalf of their organizations to participate in the identified action steps of mobility and to support coalition efforts. The pledge was unanimous.

Closing remarks from many participants revealed an excitement of organization representatives and residents joining together as a coalition to speak with one voice for the greater good of the entire community.
