“Rally and informational gathering for residents”

Saturday, June 2, 2007, City Heights held a rally and informational gathering which successfully raised the awareness of issues surrounding the CenterLine Transit System. The residents of City Heights learned how they could foster support concerning the need for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) throughout the San Diego Region. The event was held at City Heights Park during the 15th annual International Village Celebration.

The CenterLine is a plan to build a state-of-the-art bus rapid transit system in the center of the 15 freeway that would get Mid City residents to downtown in 10 minutes and to other regional jobs centers quickly. The transit system would also provide an increased access into this internationally diverse tourist attraction from other San Diego communities and beyond.

City Heights Community Development Corporation (CHCDC) would like to thank the residents of City Heights for their dedication to this project, to the media for assisting us in getting the message out to the community, and to our elected officials who continue to support us.

See the Get Involved and News sections for the next opportunities to show your support for the Centerline!
