Whittney Beard started this petition to San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria and

The City of San Diego recently began re-striping Morena Boulevard as construction on the Balboa Trolley Station comes to a close. Contrary to what was promised in the city's Specific Plan for this area (see below), the road is being returned to a 4-lane speedway, with little to no safe space for residents, school children, cyclists, pedestrians, and commuters seeking access to the new Blue Line Trolley station at Balboa Avenue. Cars often travel at speeds in excess of 55 miles per hour on this road, even while there is still construction going on and through a school zone. 

We want the City to install what was agreed to and adopted as part of the Balboa Station Area Specific Plan and Morena Corridor Specific Plan. The Balboa Station Area Specific Plan was adopted in 2019 and calls for wider sidewalks and a two-way Class IV Cycle Tracks along the west side of Morena Boulevard from Gesner Street to the Balboa Station. This would calm traffic, and in doing so would allow for safer connections to the new Balboa Station, provide a much needed recreation amenity for residents, runners, walkers, parents with strollers, and cyclists, and increase safety around Toler Elementary.

Please add your name to this petition to let the Mayor, the SD City Council and the President of the Council (Jen Campbell who also represents Bay Park on the Council) know that you support a safe Morena Boulevard that accommodates not just automobile traffic, but also trolley commuters, residents, runners, walkers, parents with strollers, cyclists, and Toler Elementary school children and their families.
