Your Input on New Trolley Stops Needed by March 20

SANDAG is seeking your input: What services and amenities do you think are most important to include in mobility hubs at each new Mid-Coast Trolley station?

This Mid-Coast Trolley will extend trolley service from Old Town to Westfield UTC. One of the new stations will serve PB and be located on Balboa Avenue at I-5.

Mobility hubs feature a range of transportation services and amenities that better connect transit to where people live, work, and play. They are places where different travel options — walking, biking, ridesharing, and transit — come together seamlessly. Supporting technologies like real-time travel information, electric vehicle charging stations, and improved trip planning and payment options offer added convenience for users.

Please provide your input and take the survey now.

Youth Athletic Fields At Risk; Here’s How To Help

San Diego is planning to redevelop the De Anza area on the northeast end of Mission Bay. The impacted area includes the Bob McEvoy Youth Fields, which are the headquarters for multiple Mission Bay Youth Sports leagues, including Mission Bay Youth Baseball (MBYB). There is no guarantee that these fields will be preserved for our youth use, and there’s a very real prospect that they may be lost in the revitalization effort.

The impact of that would be significant. At present there are almost 2,000 local youth players using those fields year round in three different community leagues. There are three baseball fields, one softball field and six soccer fields in that small complex. A loss of any fields would result in the downsizing, or outright elimination of the Mission Bay baseball and softball leagues and PYSL, and youth in the community would lose the opportunity to participate in affordable local non-profit youth sports leagues.  more »
