Transportation On El Cajon Boulevard Is Subject Of Town Hall

GUEST:

Sherry Ryan, professor of city planning, San Diego State University

Transcript

How to transform a crowded, car-oriented, business corridor into a model transit-oriented community — it’s a challenge El Cajon Boulevard businesses are pursuing with their Blvd. 20/20 plan.

The vision is to make this historic mid-city thoroughfare into a showcase of modern urban living, with an emphasis on affordable housing and public transportation.

A town hall meeting to hear from experts and get public input on transit for the Blvd. 20/20 plan will be held Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Sherry Ryan is one of the speakers at the town hall. She is a professor of city planning at SDSU. She joins Midday Edition to discuss her recommendations for the thoroughfare.

Organizers are hoping to unveil the plan in January.
