Greetings Mayor Faulconer and Representative Ward,

Thank you for supporting the plan to add protected bike infrastructure to 30th Street in North Park. There are numerous benefits to the community, spanning health, environmental, and economic considerations. There are myriad benefits for communities that extend beyond the bike and scooter riders who use the cycletracks, which can result in safer streets for all, less congestion, and ultimately less competition for already limited parking spaces.

Many of the business owners along the 30th Street corridor will benefit from increased business and foot traffic through their stores. There is significant precedent for cycle infrastructure increasing business revenue.

To help reach our City’s climate action goals, investing in protected bikeways along neighborhood commercial streets like 30th Street is critical. Protected bikeways allow safe travel for people of all ages and will allow more people to choose environmentally beneficial mobility options like scooter and bike instead of making a car trip. As the cost of gasoline continues to rise, the return on this investment will be invaluable to some of our most vulnerable citizens.

San Diego has the weather, the geography, and the existing road space to become a world class walking, biking, and scootering city through smart design and planning. I’m excited to see how all of our communities can become connected through future  investments like the protected bikeways along 30th Street.
