THEY WERE FOR IT BEFORE THEY WERE AGAINST IT

by Austin Speed

The video in this article is a compelling piece of San Diego history.   On August 1, 2006 San Diego’s City Council voted 6-2 to proceed with the Regents Road Bridge project.  The video highlights key speakers on that day who advocated the bridge project and Council Members who voted to complete Regents Road.

 

 

Since that day a small but vocal minority political group and a few key politicians have thwarted the will of the people in our region in San Diego by rationalizing a lack of action to complete Regents Road.  We have filed a legal action against the City regarding their EIR and Statement of Overriding Considerations based on California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) law.   We need everyone’s help to meet the expenses we are expecting in order to go to trial with this lawsuit.

Please consider making a donation to Citizens for the Regents Road Bridge (or “CFTRRB”) by going to our GoFundMe page at:

Or you can mail a check payable to:
“Citizens For The Regents Road Bridge” or “CFTRRB” to:

Tell your friends, neighbors, and the folks you exchange email and texts with if you feel they are “bridge supporters.”

Thank you.

Respectfully,

Austin Speed

About Citizens For The Regents Road Bridge

CITIZENS FOR THE REGENTS ROAD BRIDGE is a grassroots organization in the University City, Clairemont, Mira Mesa, La Jolla, Miramar, Kearny Mesa, and TierraSanta areas of San Diego. Our organization believes in the importance of effective action to improve safety, relieve traffic congestion, and improve multimodal transportation in these communities. Traffic congestion, particularly in the University City area on Genesee Avenue, has become unacceptable and has created significant risks for emergency responders, residents, and business owners. A city plan drawn up over 50 years ago detailed two major north-south surface street arteries serving these communities. One of them, the Clairemont Mesa Boulevard-Regents Road collector road, is still incomplete because of a number of lengthy delays in constructing a four lane bridge to transit Rose Canyon on Regents Road.
