In a memo to the Hillcrest Community Collaborative, SANDAG has made the definitive case against Washington Street and for University Avenue as the alignment for the Uptown Regional Bike Corridor project.
The Hillcrest Community Collaborative is a collaborative of Hillcrest organizations, residents, and business owners that supports the “Transform Hillcrest” proposal for the Hillcrest portion of the Uptown Regional Bike Corridor. You can read about “Transform Hillcrest” in this GSSD post.
However, in a move that surprised nearly everyone in the community, because it was counter to Transform Hillcrest, Ben Nichols, director of the Hillcrest Business Association, made a last minute push for a Washington Street alignment, prompting the memo response from SANDAG. The memo should extinguish any remaining opposition to the University Avenue alignment.
