THREE BIG THINGS: AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT, A LINK, AND A NEW ARTICLE

by Austin Speed

We have three important post-Thanksgiving items for everybody:

  1. AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT OUR TAX EXEMPT STATUS:  Citizens for the Regents Road Bridge (CFTRRB) has been approved to be a tax exempt public charity under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501 (c) (3).  We received this good news in mid-November and the IRS’s approval of our application is effective as of June 7, 2017.  Donations to  CFTRRB by all taxpayers are now tax deductible.   
  2. A LINK: The San Diego Union Tribune published an article by Roger Showley titled “UCSD’s growth means traffic jams — more than double the wait time —at key intersection by 2035.”  Roger’s article highlights extended traffic delays into the forseeable future for North University City due to planned construction projects on the UCSD campus and throughout the North UC area. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/business/growth-development/sd-fi-ucsdeir-20171124-story.html
  3. A NEW ARTICLE: Our blog has a new article titled “A Tale of Two City Councils” which ponders the inconsistencies of City Council’s decision this year to approve a bridge project connecting Mission Valley and Serra Mesa as contrasted with the City Council’s decision to remove the Regents Road Bridge project from the UC Plan which would connect north and south University City.  A Tale Of Two City Councils

 

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.
