Major Change is Coming to 30th Street unless WE stop it ...

San Diego’s Mayor Kevin Faulconer listened to Councilmember Chris Ward and “special interest” groups, and on May 16, 2019 directed the elimination of ALL 420 parking spaces on 30th Street in North Park, from Howard to Juniper, and the feasibility of removing an additional 151 spaces from Howard to Adams, to make room for "protected" bike lanes, by installing posts every few feet AND removing the center lane north of Upas. This drastic reduction of a total of 571 parking spaces completely disregards the legitimate needs of the residents and businesses in the area, especially the disabled and elderly. Buses, emergency, trash,  street sweepers, delivery off loading and ride sharing vehicles will be forced to stop in traffic lanes, causing traffic jams. This plan is simply not feasible for a narrow street that passes through a small commercial area and a historic residential community. The vast majority of all businesses and home owners on 30th and the surrounding streets oppose this Directive.  Much BETTER AND SAFER ALTERNATIVES ALREADY EXIST - UTAH STREET CURRENTLY HAS BIKE LANES, no merchants, wider street, no buses, and fewer traffic signals. Let's focus on enhancing those, rather than disrupting residents and visitors, and ultimately putting our merchants out of business.

                      With your help, we can defeat this directive.
