Note: The City Council ignored the City Planning Commission’s 6-0 vote RECOMMENDING the Council KEEP the Regents Road Bridge in the plan and BUILD it.
The Regents Road Bridge has been in the community plan for over 40 years. It is the MISSING PIECE IN THE MULTIMODAL TRANSPORTATION REGIONAL NETWORK. Most, if not all, of the development in the area north of Rose Canyon was based upon the bridge being built as part of the necessary infrastructure.
Nearly 50 major public and private projects approved by the City and UCSD are or will be under construction in the Golden Triangle area in the next 5 years! Per SANDAG, almost 57,000 people commute to and from or within the Golden Triangle EVERY DAY! (Cited in the La Jolla Light article dated August 2, 2017, ‘San Diego’s Go-To Transportation Solution’: City launches SHIFT platform eyeing 50 Golden Triangle/La Jolla construction projects” and “Getting There: The Golden Triangle” in the San Diego Business Journal Aug. 17th edition.)
Our region needs the REGENTS ROAD BRIDGE to improve public safety, alleviate traffic congestion, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, shorten emergency response times, and provide a critical second north/south arterial route. Also, in order to comply with San Diego’s Climate Action Plan, Master Traffic Plan, and Master Bike Plan, the City MUST build the Regents Road Bridge.

Note: The money raised IS PRIMARILY for Legal representation and filing fees. Your contributions will be tax deductible as we have now filed as a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation. According to the IRS, while an application is pending, the organization can treat itself as exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) and donations would be tax deductible for income tax purposes. We must tell you that in the unlikely case that the application is rejected, those donations under our pending 501 (c) (3) application would lose their tax deductibility.
