Uptown has been volunteered to be a leader in San Diego. They didn’t exactly ask to be, but challenges and changes coming to Uptown may very well influence the future of San Diego.
Two changes are coming to Uptown in the next two years. First, SANDAG has prioritized it’s Uptown Regional Bike Plan and is pushing forward to add great bicycle facilities in Uptown’s business districts. Secondly, Bike Share will become a reality in January 2014.
If Uptown embraces these changes and challenges, it will have a significant impact on the City. That may be asking a lot from simple bike lanes, but other cites that have already followed this path have experience a transformation.
Uptown’s biggest challenge may be its Community Plan update. Here too, Uptown has a chance to lead the City.
This proposed Transportation Policy for the Community Plan update could make Uptown not only a progressive leader for San Diego, but have a major impact on everything from neighborhood quality of life, to climate change.
Help Uptown become the visionary leaders they are capable of being. Support the Uptown 21C Transportation Policy.

Why Uptown? I’m not sure. But San Diego’s future is being tried out in Uptown first. Can Uptown lead San Diego into a better, more livable, more sustainable, and economically successful future? It’s a responsibility not to be taken lightly.
